Children are invited to either Sunday School or Joyful Noise after worship begins. Childcare is available for infants and toddlers (3 months – 2 years) from 9:20am until 12:15pm for those parents who would like the opportunity to be child free during worship service.
Sunday School meets during worship service except the first Sunday of each month, which is also Communion Sunday. All children will participate in a mission outreach project. Some of their activities have included decorating lunch bags for Salvation Army, writing letters to community helpers, and creating art to raise money as Little Stewpot Stewards. Children rejoin the congregation at the time of communion to enable us to partake together as a family.

The Central Children’s Choir, led by Joanna Habbermann, is comprised of children and youth in grades K-8. The choir's diverse choral repertoire includes songs from various cultures, songs in foreign languages, and music from different historical time periods, as well as traditional hymns, spirituals and folk songs. Children in choir learn to read music from a choral octavo and hymnal, sight read simple rhythms and melodies, and develop aural skills. The Children’s Choir offers its musical gifts in Central's worship service approximately once a month, sometimes in conjunction with the Chancel Choir and Chancel Bells. Children from the wider community desiring to participate in the Central Children’s Choir are invited to join, with approval of the director. Rehearsal is on Sundays, 9:45-10:30 AM, September - May
