Our Mission

Our mission is to create a fun and engaging atmosphere where children feel loved and accepted as we live out the love of Christ as a church body and jump into the Bible with the kids to teach them who Jesus Christ is!

We believe it is essential to teach children the importance of putting others first and serving others just as Jesus Christ did, so we work with them to put this into practice. To effectively do this, we incorporate service projects within the church and go out into the community to serve.


Security and safety are important to us here at CBC. All volunteers go through a background check screening.
