Our desire is to lead children to know and trust Jesus with the aim that they would grow to be God-centered, Christ-exalting, Spirit-dependent, Bible-saturated, doctrinal-grounded, faith-filled, mission-minded, spiritually mature men and women of God.
We believe that parents are the primary disciplers of their children. Therefore, we desire to work alongside our parents to build their child's faith in God. Our children's programming centers around God's transformative truth from the Bible and on helping children build strong relationships with peers and leaders.

Gospel Project Curriculum
The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered, chronologically based study for children of all ages. Castleton Kids uses this curriculum for children from nursery through sixth grade. All children learn the same base lesson each week, with age appropriate differentiation. Children will bring home a Parent Page which describes what the child learned in class and ways for parents to further disciple their child through the week.
SUMMER 2023 UPDATE: Castleton KIDS will take a break from the Gospel Project over the summer and study the New City Catechism instead. Busy bags and lessons will focus on a different catechism question each week and parents will receive materials to work with their child at home. To learn more about the New City Catechism, why we believe it is important, and for additional resources, please follow the link below.
New City Catechism Resource Page
At Castleton Community Church, we believe it is essential to teach children about the value of worshipping with other believers. On the first Sunday of every month during the school year, elementary classrooms close and families are encouraged to worship together in the sanctuary. We don't mind the extra wiggles and the loudly whispered questions. We hope families take advantage of the opportunity to model a rich worship environment for their children.
All children are welcome to sit with guardians in the church service at any time. Busy bags are always available at the welcome desk. Nursery and preschool care are always available during the 9AM. Nursery and toddler care is always available during the 11AM service.
