  • Nursery

    We are delighted for your child to be in nursery care at Christ the Redeemer. Our nursery staff is eager to care for and play with your child. Your child will hear Bible stories and songs and enjoy free play. Demonstrating God's love, it is our desire to provide a safe, caring environment. Our childcare providers have completed background checks, MinistrySafe Abuse Prevention Training, First Aid/CPR/AED training and have experience in childcare. We take diligent precautions to maintain a clean and safe environment.

    Please complete the registration form to better allow us to know your child and how to best care for them.

  • Worship and Wonder

    Worship & Wonder is offered during the Sunday school offering for children ages 4 - 5th grade from 9:30 am-10:10am.

    The Worship & Wonder approach to entering into Scripture with children focuses on:

    the biblical narrative

    spiritual developmental needs of a child


    the rhythmic and cyclical, liturgical life

    How you can help your child in Worship & Wonder?

    Encourage your child to "get ready."

    Get the wiggles out, go to the bathroom, empty pockets of trinkets prior to arriving.

    Your child benefits from arriving on time and unhurried.

    Allow the greeter to help your child

    enter into the atrium.

    During daily life, ask your children wondering questions and discuss God's Big Story in the Bible.

    Observe in church together - notice the changes of color, special objects, actions and words.

    Children will only be dismissed from Worship & Wonder to parents or designated guardians. Please pick up your children promptly at 10:10am to allow everyone time to prepare for worship.


We are offering nursery!

Nursery care is provided in a safe, caring space for our youngest children (infant - preschool) during our Worship Service on Sunday mornings by trained childcare workers.

All people who interact with children undergo screening and Ministry Safe training. We are excited to develop a Chapel time for the older nursery children incorporating music and Scripture using Worship & Wonder concepts during the Worship Service time.

Children age infant to preschool may be dropped off at any point before or during the service; many families choose to pick up their children for the Eucharist.

Children are (always) welcome to worship with us in church.

Please take the time to complete a registration form for your child; this information allows us to get to know and care for your child well and communicate with you better.

To register your child for the Nursery, please fill out THIS form.

Sunday School begins on

September 10th @9:30 Am.

Worship and Wonder

Worship & Wonder has a Montessori approach that includes Bible storytelling and experiential reflection and response time.

There are three age groups:

Atrium I - 3-5 year olds(access through Kitchen hall)

Atrium II - K-2nd grade (at end of hall)

Atrium III - 3-5th grade (hall to foyer atrium)

Signs will direct your way to their respective rooms. Please take note that Atrium II will be accessed through the back nursery to minimize traffic congestion and disruptions. Getting to church a few minutes early to allow children to go to the restroom and get settled greatly helps them to transition into the atrium spaces. Registration Forms will be passed out for children; please take the time to fill out and return.

OUr director of family and children's ministry

Melissa Smith

It is our desire at Christ the Redeemer to welcome little children, as Jesus did, to come to Him and be blessed. Our goal is to support and equip parents in their role as the primary spiritual leaders of their families. We are eager to partner with families as they seek to nurture their child’s belief in God. 

As a 20+ yr veteran in the trenches of parenting and Children’s ministry, Melissa is passionate about equipping and encouraging parents as the spiritual leaders of their families. She has a love for God’s written Word and is excited to share how our deeply-rooted Anglican tradition brings richness and fullness to our faith as modern Christians.  "I pray that God will use my experience in prayer, missions and spiritual formation to nurture families of faith in the Great Tradition and the Greatest Story Ever. “
