Ckids Nursery Pre-school ( 6 wks to 5 yrs ) & Ckids Elementary ( K – 5th )
At Celebration, we believe in the importance of ministering to the needs of even our littlest members. While the main sanctuary experience is designed for adults, our state of the art Nursery, Preschool and Elementary spaces (available during all of our weekend services) have been carefully created with your children in mind. Our hope is that, no matter their age, your children will learn to LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, DO THEIR BEST and HAVE FUN!
We are so grateful that you trust us with caring for your little ones. Our safe, secure, and comfortable environments have been designed so that, no matter their age, your child will have fun, engage with and receive the word of God. Visit the check-in desk to take a tour, meet our teachers and introduce your child. If you wish to attend service with your child, we offer a Family Lounge just for you. We also have a Nursing Mothers Room available in the Nursery/Preschool area with comfortable chairs and a live-feed of the service.
Introducing: The Storybook Bible.
Our nursery/preschool curriculum is based on the One Hope and YouVersion’s Storybook Bible. Engagement, quality, and ease-of-use are at the heart of this curriculum, created to work in tandem with the Bible App for Kids.
As imaginative as your preschoolers’ favorite TV shows, these lessons point them to JESUS. Early childhood education research shows that preschoolers learn best through repetition, so each monthly series will feature one Bible story that children ages 2-5 will learn through interactive discussions and activities.
We will also be taking age-appropriate elements of the curriculum to engage one-year-old children as well. Throughout the week, you can reinforce at home what your preschooler/s are learning at church utilizing the Storybook Bible and/or the Bible App for Kids.
Purchase a copy of the Storybook Bible: now on sale in the LOFT and online.

Located in the top of The Loft Café, The Family Lounge allows you to sit comfortably with your children and watch a live feed of the service in an environment with age-appropriate toys and refreshments for parents. In order to help us create the best worship experience possible for everyone, we ask that your family please utilize one of these areas at each of our campuses, as we have reserved the sanctuary for those ages five and up. Please visit connect at the campus of your choice to have a Guest Service team member show you the Family Lounge area.
As a church, we are so excited to share in the celebration of this special milestone for you and your family. We believe that dedicating your child(ren) before the Lord is an outward expression of an inner commitment to raise your child(ren) in a godly way. Our Baby Dedication Service is intended to help commemorate this special day, and allows us the opportunity to pray for you and your family.
Baby Dedications happen at the Midtown location beginning at 10:30am on the following dates. A light reception for you and your family will be provided.
Saturday, May 13th
Saturday, July 8th
Saturday, October 7th

Our Celebration Kids ministry is here to serve your K-5th grade students. During our weekend services, kids get to experience their very own service with worship, a message, and breakout groups in a safe, friendly and enjoyable atmosphere. Our leaders serve to ensure your kids encounter God, have fun, and feel loved. Celebration Kids ministry is available at all of our locations, every Sunday.
cKids Inclusion Ministry is an extension of Ckids and exists to be a ministry that supports children who might need a little extra help as they attend a Ckids service experience. CKids Inclusion is composed of “Buddies” (Volunteers) who attend the Ckids service with your child so that he/she can participate in worship and engage in the Bible lesson once it is determined that cKids Inclusion is a great fit for your child.
Next, the cKids Inclusion Coordinator will begin to build a team of Side Kicks for your child. Once the team is established, we will begin to build a schedule that will work for you and your family. One student is matched with one or more volunteers, and will communicate to their volunteer each week they plan on attending church. In order to ensure an excellent experience, parents or guardians are invited to apply for the cKids Inclusion prior to arriving at a service.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The safety and security of your children are our top priority. Our check-in and pick-up process is simple yet efficient. Our goal is for you to enjoy service, knowing your kids are secure, while having a great time.
We are so glad that you will be joining us this weekend. Here are a few things that will help you get ready for your ckids experience.
WHAT TO BRING
* We are a peanut free environment. Cheerios are provided for children ages 1 - 5 years old.
*For Infants through 1 yr. please prepare all bottles before dropping children off. We want to make sure your little one gets everything they need & having their bottles prepared for them ahead of time ensures this.
*Label all items that are important to you. We have the honor of serving many children & in order to make sure everyone’s items are returned to them we ask that all parents label the items they send with their children.
Each time you check your child in you will be asked to show your tag as well as your child’s tag to a security team member.
To help expedite the process, it is suggested that each family place their stickers on BEFORE going through the doors. Security is placed there to ensure the safety of each child. No one will be admitted into any of our ckids areas without a security sticker.
Parents can check in all children at any of our check-in stations regardless of their age.
Just go to one of our check in stations on either the nursery and preschool side or the elementary side and one of our check in leaders will help you navigate our Check In screens.
If it’s your first time we have a special place for you to check your child in and receive a guided tour for your entire family to see where your child will be while your in service.
We have a professional and loving Nursery and Preschool staff dedicated to ensuring a great experience for each child who comes through our doors.
LET'S HAVE FUN!
As a result we dedicated a great deal of our time creating fun, and engaging curriculum and activities for each child. Each child will experience:
– Fun and engaging curriculum about Jesus
– Group prayer
– Fun video elements
– Snack (6 weeks to 5 years only)
