Nothing will have greater impact in your child’s life than introducing him or her to the one, true God. CVCKids believes that the best way to do that is a parent-church partnership. God has called you, as a parent, to be your child’s primary spiritual leader. CVCKids is devoted to supporting you on the way. We offer Sunday School classes, take-home materials, and family experiences, among other things. In addition, whenever we discover items that we think will help kids grow spiritually and help parents disciple their children well, we want to share them! Below are some links to a list of our recommended resources. You can also visit our bookshelf in the lower-level foyer of the church to see physical copies. You might consider investing in some of them to add to your home!
CVCKids offers Sunday School classes for babies and preschoolers during the 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services. Newborns to 24-month-olds are cared for by trained and loving volunteers, and their classes are determined by developmental stage, creating a safe environment for each and every baby. Beginning at 2 years old and carrying on until they enter Kindergarten, children are taught three basic biblical truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Volunteers use a variety of activities and teaching methods to help children grasp Bible stories and foundational concepts about God. Below are some links to help you continue the learning throughout the week, or to teach a lesson from home if you aren’t able to attend in person on a particular Sunday.

CVCKids offers Sunday School classes for kindergarteners through 4th graders at the 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services. During Sunday School, they study a new virtue each month, opening the Bible to discover how God displays the virtue as a part of His character and how He wants to grow the same thing in them. The children participate in both a small group and large group setting. During large group time, the Bible story is presented by talented storytellers. In their small-setting LifeGroup, children build friendships with one another and learn how God’s Word applies to their lives. Below are some links to help you stay updated and to continue the learning throughout the week at home.
Fifth graders within CVCKids begin to examine what they believe about God and why they believe it. The Explore curriculum is designed to help them take ownership of their faith, while also examining essential ideas about God and the Bible. The lessons are interactive and applicable, promoting critical thinking and spiritual growth. Although not mandatory, parents are invited to attend class with their child each week. It is a wonderful time for you to not only discover what is being taught, but also to learn (or be reminded of) foundational truths alongside your child. Fifth graders meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:15.
Blast! is our family experience where children and their grown-ups come together to learn and have fun. Enjoy the music, skits, and videos, and get a chance to win a copy of our recommended resource for the month. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with your child and be inspired to lead him or her spiritually at home. Blast! is designed to correlate with the K-4th grade curriculum, but all ages are welcome to attend. You can join us on the first Sunday of every month in the lower level of the church at 10:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Watch the video below for a small taste of what you will find there.
Indispensable is a ministry to children and adults with special needs. We offer Sunday School classes at the 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services. The Indispensable area includes a multi-sensory room, a quiet room, and a friendly classroom where students will study an interactive Bible lesson. Below, you’ll find a link to watch part of the weekly Sunday School lesson.
Throughout the year, we also offer evening LifeGroups, karaoke nights, and a special needs prom called Night to Shine. Check back here to get updates to find out when those events are happening.
Our Indispensable LifeGroup for teens and young adults is currently meeting on Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in lower level room 113 at the Broadview Heights campus. We hope to see you there!
