We partner with parents to provide safe, fun, Christ-centered care for kids of all ages.
Sunday Morning Programs
We provide child care and classes for infants through 5th grade during our morning worship services.
Infants – 2 years
Children begin learning about Jesus from Day 1. Loving volunteers sing and pray with our babies, and toddlers enjoy playtime and learn about all the wonderful things that God has made.
Kidz Korner, Jr.
Twos & Kindergarten
The Gospel Project for Preschool takes our preschoolers on a chronological journey through God’s big story—the story of redemption weaved through Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation. When preschoolers truly experience the gospel they are forever changed. It is the gospel, not good behavior, that transforms hearts. The gospel changes everything.
1st – 5th grades
Elementary-age kids join their families for praise and worship before being dismissed for an age-appropriate study of God’s Word.
When Kids Get It, It Changes Everything. Our elementary students follow The Gospel Project curriculum. The Gospel Project take kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture. Kids will discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. When kids truly experience the gospel, their hearts are transformed. It is the gospel, not good behavior, that changes everything. Families can reinforce what their children learn through a companion family devotional and app.
Children with Special Needs
To enable and empower individuals and families affected by disability to be a part of Chelten’s worshiping community, we provide one-on-one buddy support during all Sunday school and church services.
Wednesday Evening Programs
Kids in grades 1-5 love to attend our Wednesday evening programs! We meet from 7:00 – 8:30 pm, September through April. In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we will post updates on our 2020 school year start date.
1st – 5th grade boys
Our boys participate in a lively, fun-filled time of learning about Jesus and what it means to be a boy who loves Jesus. Master Builders play games, have Bible stories, build projects, race cars, blast rockets and go on a fall retreat! Our boys will learn how to grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus and others.
1st – 5th grade girls
Our Explorer Girls experience Bible stories, make crafts, earn badges, sing songs, play games, go on a fall retreat and have a lot of fun! Each girl receives a PROP, which is a woman from the church who commits to praying for your daughter through out the year. Our girls will learn that Jesus is the ultimate in all of life!
