Hungry, Humble and Hospitable


Welcome to the Cherry Hills Children’s Ministry.  Thank you for entrusting your child to us.  We take your child’s safety and discipleship seriously, and we’ll do everything we can to earn and keep your trust.

Our mission as a Children’s Ministry is to partner with you (parents/guardians) to help raise your child to be a growing disciple of Jesus.

We really do see this ministry as a partnership with parents.  We’ll help in any way we can, but we encourage you to be an active participant in your child’s discipleship.  As a parent, you have more influence in your child’s life and their decision to follow Jesus than anyone else.

At Cherry Hills, kids develop a deep faith in Jesus, a love for God’s Word, and experience meaningful community in our Children’s Ministry.  In our Early Childhood (birth-preschool) and Elementary Ministry (kindergarten-5th grade), kids explore Bible stories through hands-on learning and interactive experiences, while discovering how God’s Word applies to their life today. Children’s Ministry is offered during our 9:30 and 11 a.m. services.

We love partnering with parents.  Please contact us if you have questions or need help getting connected.
