Our CV Kids goals are that your children are safe, feel loved, make friends, and grow as disciples of Jesus.
Children from birth through grade 5 are welcome to participate in CV Kids on Sunday mornings during our Sunday service. Children age 4 and up typically stay with their parents during the worship portion of our Sunday service, then they are released to go to their classes with their teachers after worship. All of our volunteers are background-checked and go through safety training.
Where do I take my kids?
When you arrive at Crestwood, a greeter will show you to our CV Kids lobby where one of our CV Kids volunteers will assist you in checking your kids into our system. They will gather some basic information, print security name tags for both you and your child, walk with you and your child to their classroom, and introduce you to your child’s teachers. After service, you can pick up your child in their classroom with the security tag you were given before dropping them off.
What will my kids do in class?
Plenty of time is given to play and interaction. In addition, our curriculum focuses on helping your child know God loves them, speaks to them, and that they can respond to Him.
The focus for babies and toddlers is that they feel safe and loved. They are reminded every Sunday that “I love the Bible, God made all good things, I love Jesus, and God made me and loves me.”
Ages 4 through 5th grade have a lesson from The Jesus Storybook Bible. Our curriculum then helps them to grow in spiritual disciplines, hearing God’s voice, knowing how to pray for each other, and responding to what God says.
What about my child with special needs?
We realize not all kids are the same. As much as possible, we try to accommodate the needs of all children in the classroom. If you have questions or concerns about your child’s special needs, please contact us.
Will I be notified if there is a concern with my child?
CV Kids leaders contact parents personally or via text message during the service if there are any issues or concerns with a child.
Is the environment safe?
All CV Kids volunteers are background checked and safety trained. All classrooms contain video cameras, and all teachers have a walky-talky to connect them to our security team.
How do I volunteer?
If you have a heart to help our kids grow as disciples of Jesus, we would love for you to join our CV Kids team. We schedule our volunteers on a 4-week rotation, so you would be in CV Kids one Sunday per month. All volunteers must complete an application, pass a background check, and complete CV Kids training.
