Children’s Ministry

The Treehouse

Candlewood Community Church
Ministry to Children

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me,….”
Matthew 19:14


  1. To lovingly care for and nurture children from birth through 5th grade
  2. To provide a place where each child feels loved
  3. To shepherd a child’s heart through Bible teaching
  4. To teach Biblical concepts that will provide a foundation for years to come
  5. To keep our highest goal in focus:  leading each child to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ
“Children, come and listen to me.
I will teach you to worship the Lord.”
Psalm 34:11

   The Treehouse will provide a place for children ages 3-11 to learn Biblical truths from God’s Word through activity, prayer, discussion, and scripture memory.

“Train up a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
Proverbs 22:6


   Safety is a high priority at Candlewood ~ for both the children and those shepherding them.  Each person involved in ministry to children must complete a ministry application and is carefully screened.  Safety policies include ratios, safe facilities, and mature supervision.


   Even our youngest children will have our utmost loving care.  Our nursery is staffed with volunteers who care for infants and toddlers (birth through age 2) in a loving environment.

“Whoever welcomes one of these little children
in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me
does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”
Mark 9:37
