For Children

We love children at College Avenue! We offer a variety of events and opportunities for your children to grow in their faith and knowledge about Jesus. Children actively participate worship and mission opportunities within our church and community. A great children’s ministry gives you peace of mind that your children are learning in a safe and fun environment. You can expect a warm welcome any time you join us at College Avenue!





All children are welcome to worship. However, you may prefer other age-appropriate opportunities for your children. You can feel confident your children are in safe hands while you worship, study, or participate in church gatherings.
