Citylife Kids & Youth Ministry seeks to partner with families to cultivate in each child a love for God through education and discipleship. We are committed to the centrality of the gospel in all that we do – in our relationships, curriculum, instruction, and corporate worship.
Nursery: Ages 6 months - 2 years
The nursery ensures that each child is safe and properly cared for so that parents can join the service for corporate worship.
Toddlers: Ages 2 - 4 years
The toddler’s group incorporates elements of music, crafts, and lessons to enable young minds to engage God's truth.
Kids Church: Pre-K through 5th grade
Citylife Kids incorporates elements of music, large group lessons, and small group lessons based on grade level.
Welcome to Citylife! Citylife Kids and Youth Ministry offers Sunday morning programs, as well as events for the whole family in the city of Boston. When you arrive, please visit the welcome table to find the best classroom for your children. At Citylife, kids and youth join the congregation for worship and are released prior to extending of peace (noted in the weekly bulletin).
Safety: The Kids and Youth Ministry understands the extra precautions needed because our worship venue is in a public facility. All staff is expected to be aware of our children's whereabouts, company, and activities at all times. Policies and guidelines related to safety, health, and emergency situations are also available. This is to ensure the highest level of safety for our children.
