Youth and Children at Christ Presbyterian Church

Children and youth have always had a central role at CPC. Our youth are given the guidance and opportunity to become leaders in the church. They learn to play together, sing together, worship together, and work together.


Childcare ages 1 month to 3 years is available all year for young children during the worship service. Please feel free to make use of this service.

Nursery Care Providers: Mary Melville-Warner, Elizabeth Hart

Christ Presbyterian Church holds a Summer Music Camp each summer for children and youth. Visit the church website in early summer for dates about the Camp for 2019.

This year camp will be led by music director Steve Blum, who brings his years of experience as a choir director, youth educator, and pianist/percussionist. In a fun and interactive environment child will be introduced to music fundamentals. Kids will play traditional African drums, tone chimes, and mallet percussion, and learn Kodály sight reading techniques for pitch and rhythm. We will dive deep into the rhythmic and melodic language of music and develop basic vocal technique through the singing of songs.  The program will also include snacks, arts and crafts, and games.
