We strive to grow children who will See Jesus Christ clearly, Love Him dearly, Follow Him closely, and Share Him freely.
Note from the Director ~ Lillian Leung
Our mission at CGBC Kids is to grow children who will See Jesus Christ clearly, Love Him dearly, Follow Him closely, and Share Him freely. Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” (Matt 19:14). Jesus values children, and so do we.
We have a window of time to reach them. Research has shown that the religious beliefs a person develops by the age of 13 are usually the set of beliefs they will maintain for the rest of their lives¹. Often, major spiritual choices are made when people are young, so we must work together as a church family to nurture and grow our young people, directing them toward the path of our Heavenly Father.We look forward to all that God has to do in the lives of our young people! Thank you for your support!

What to Expect
CGBC is a vibrant and loving community of people from three different language groups: Cantonese, English, and Mandarin.
Here at CGBC Kids, we serve children from birth until 6th grade. (Junior High and High School students have their own separate program). When you arrive in the courtyard, there is a registration desk where all parents are to sign in their children. From there, the children can then enter into their respective classes, allowing parents to attend their own programs without having to worry about their children.
All classes are Christ-centered, age based, and thoughtfully prepared to suit your children’s needs. In order for children to get the full benefit and experience of the Children’s Program, it is recommended that they attend both Sunday School and the Children’s Worship time. Sunday School classes are offered twice, either at 8:30am or 11:30am. Children’s Worship is offered at 10:00am. The Children’s Program is conducted in English; although we have many bi-lingual volunteers that can assist when needed.
We are happy to welcome you and your children, whether you’ve visited the church hundreds of times, or if this is your first time. Come join our family!

Nursery (birth - 3.5 years) 8:30am-12:45pm
Whether it be through play, songs, puppet shows, and interactions with their kind and tender-hearted teachers, we will be sharing the love of God to our youngest attenders.
Every Sunday, our infants and toddlers will hear a short lesson and participate in Beginner's Worship, singing songs of praise to our Lord. Our aim is to provide a safe and loving environment for the children and to teach them to love our Lord.
Children's Sunday School (Ages 3 and up)
We encourage you to bring your children to Sunday school. Classes are offered at two times: 8:30 and 11:30.
Here, children will grow deeper in their relationship with the Lord, their understanding of His word, and their relationship with each other. Help partner with us to equip your children against the pressures and negative messages of the world and teach them to live with integrity, purpose, and passion for Christ.
Children's Worship (Ages 3 and up)
Children’s worship is at 10:00am on Sundays (after the 8:30 Sunday School Class and preceding the 11:30 Sunday School Class).
During this hour, children worship and sing the praises of our Lord together in a large group. Our dedicated teachers prepare a thoughtful lesson based off of our church-wide devotional book, "Living Life," giving practical applications to help them throughout their week.
