Welcome to CCO City kids

Welcome to Calvary Chapel Oceanside's Children's Ministry. At City Kids we view your kids not just as the future of the church, but a significant and vibrant part of the church right now.  Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Mark 10:14).  At CCO we believe that Kingdom of God does belong to our children and we feel the joy and the weight of the responsibility that you as parents hold to train up your children in the Lord.  Our vision is to enable them to always be ready to give a defense, in a world where false views and philosophies are standing against the truth of God's Word. We view it a privilege to partner with you as you do the important and hard work of parenting.

The goal of our Children’s Ministry is to provide a place where your children can learn, develop and stand firmly on their own faith.  We want to help our kids cultivate a heart that treasures God above all things. Our hope is that your children will comprehend the great love God has for them, and believe with all their hearts that God's Word is true.
In order to do this effectively, we have intentionally considered all the details of your child’s time with us.  The fun and interactive spaces and the smiling faces of our volunteers are designed to show your child about our God, His excellence, and His love.  Our high-energy worship, interactive lessons, and storytelling are intentionally designed to help your child to know God deeply in an age-appropriate and engaging way.

Whether your child attends Sunday mornings (9am & 11am), Saturday nights (5:55pm), or Wednesday nights for CKC, they will get an opportunity to carefully study the Bible, their faith will be strengthened, they will develop a loving relationship with God and be able to stand firm and trust His Word.
We look forward to meeting you and your child and partnering with you as you do the blessed work of parenting. We pray that as we have your children through the years, they will become part of a generation of believers that are set apart and live their lives in a way that pleases our Lord.

Check - In

Check-In System:
CCO City Kids offers a fast, safe and secure check-in system. Our check-in kiosks are open 15 minutes before and after services start so we can print out the children's check-in and claim tickets before they enter their classes. After the children have been registered in the system it is easy to use with a few easy touches on the screen. 
Please check your child in at the City Kids check-in kiosk each week. For your child’s first visit, you will be asked to register at our "New Families" Kiosk. We use this to record pertinent information and dates when your child visits us. After your initial visit, they become a regular attendee and will receive a permanent name sticker. It is important that you indicate if your child has any allergies, special needs, or custody issues so we can address your needs.

Security & Pick-up:
Numbers are assigned at the  check-in kiosk, a name/number sticker is presented to the parent who checked the child in. If your child should need you during the service, this number will flash on the red lighted number panel located in the sanctuaries. At pick up, your child will only be released to the person with the  name/number claim sticker. All City Kids team members go through special training and are processed and screened for Megan’s Law and International clearance. They also will be wearing a name badge to identify them as City Kids team members.

First time users can register your children now to be sure they are in the system before you attend.

 check In times

Saturday Night 5:45pm - 6:20pm
Sunday 1st service 8:45am - 9:20am
Sunday 2nd service 10:45am - 11:20am
Wednesday Night CKC 5:45pm - 6:20pm
 
These check in times are designed to make sure that the classroom and learning experience is enjoyable for your child as well as help provide an uninterrupted time for the teachers. If a child comes in later than the check-in times the teacher would have to stop what they are doing to check the child into the classroom and then have to either re-explain the curriculum or give the instructions again for the craft or other place that they are in the classroom schedule. Please understand that we are doing what is best for the overall continuity of the children's ministry, kid’s and the teachers. Thank you for your prayers and support!
