Checking In

We recommend arriving a few minutes early before your first time visiting to check in your child to their classroom. As you and your child approach our check-in desks, you’ll be greeted by a member of our Community Kids Check-In Team who will help you register and create a nametag for your child plus a corresponding security tag for yourself at our computerized check-in location.

Please alert check-in personnel of any information that will help in caring for your child, such as allergies and special needs. You’ll then take your child to their designated classroom. All of the Community Kids Team have been through a screening process to ensure the safety of your child. Please note that parents are not allowed in these classrooms without a corresponding security tag.

Our Community Kid’s wing doors lock by 20 minutes after service begins and remain closed until the adult worship service has been dismissed. This is for the safety and security of the children. Adults picking up their child must also be wearing their child’s corresponding security tag – please show this to the doorkeeper as you pass through on your way to pick up your child. Here is our check-in policy.


Age Groups

Our Bible-based programs are designed so each child is cared for and instructed in an age-appropriate classroom environment. From nurturing care in the nursery to intriguing stories of Bible heroes in the elementary classrooms, your child will be loved, cared for, and guided through the Word of God in a way that motivates their spiritual growth.

Your young children will begin learning about the Bible and Jesus with our curriculum geared specifically for this young age group. Our nursery rooms are equipped with age-appropriate toys that are thoroughly cleaned each week and plenty of team members to hold and comfort your baby.

In our preschool rooms, kids will learn about the Bible through activities such as stories, crafts, and singing while given the opportunity to build relationships with their friends and teachers.

Every week our elementary kids get to experience dynamic worship, games, age-appropriate lessons, and prayer time while making friends.

In addition to our morning classes, our Preteen Ministry offers opportunities for preteens to meet on Sunday evenings with the intention to create a fun, energetic environment that allows this unique age group to really grow in their faith in Christ.

Third Friday of the Month, 9:30am-11am
at CCC’s Kid’s Wing

Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have when we follow Jesus. In the Bible we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and He was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17). Here at CCC, we support the commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child and provide opportunities for Baby Dedications periodically throughout the year. At this ceremony, the parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. To schedule a baby dedication, please contact Emily Gloeckner, our Director of Early Childhood Ministry.

This area is specially designed for mothers with infants to enjoy the Sunday service in a private environment where you can feed, change, and care for your baby. The service is streamed live in this area just for you. This room is located in the foyer, just beyond the ministry desks.

Get free transportation on Sunday mornings to our 10:30am service by hitching a ride on the CCC Bus! Available to adults and kids living within the Columbus city limits – To schedule a ride, call Bus Coordinator Leslie Johnson at (812) 374-3090.
