    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
    to silence the foe and the avenger."   Psalm 8:2 NIV

  • our ministry

    Chesapeake Kids at CCF is designed to minister to children from infancy to 6th grade. Our goal is to provide a safe environment that is conducive to reaching every child with the Good News of Jesus Christ. No matter the age, Chesapeake Kids strives to aid each child in strengthening their personal relationship in the Lord through a series of differentiated, high-energy classroom lessons. We are equipped with a full staff of God-serving volunteers that are eager to make Chesapeake Kids the church that your children will drag you to.

  • our Director

    My name is Michelle Cannon, and I have been entrusted to serve as the Director of Chesapeake Kids. I have a heart for children and have extensive child-oriented experience.  I have taught at both public and private schools, lead vacation bible schools, organized preschool story time, worked in church nurseries, and am a mother of five.


    We have many exciting events coming up!  I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Please stop and introduce yourself when you see me in the hall or classroom.


safety

Chesapeake Kids is dedicated to providing a safe environment for your child. This safe environment includes more than just ensuring that our classrooms are up to code. To ensure the safety of your child, Chesapeake Kids has developed a system of checks and balances that cohesively work to protect the children, volunteers, and the ministry.

Fellowship One is our electronic check-in system that is utilized throughout every branch of Chesapeake Kids. Through this system, every child will receive a name tag with an alphanumeric code, and the parent will receive a claim tag with only the alphanumeric code. This code cannot be replicated for any reason. The claim tag must be present at dismissal to ensure the child is released to the proper adult.

Second, Chesapeake Kids takes great pride in the quality of our volunteers. Every volunteer 18 years or older is required to have a complete background check. Any volunteers that are not yet 18 are always paired with an adult and have come to us with credible recommendations.


CURRICULUM


Long gone are the days of perforated worksheets and the telling of bible stories through felt boards. Chesapeake Kids strives to make disciples of each child through the usage of a high-energy curriculum called Elevate. Elevate meets each child where they are through age-appropriate worship, main points, skits, bible lessons, small group lessons, crafts and games. Elevate also allows for each child’s active mind to stay stimulated by allowing for new themes and ideas to be discovered every eight weeks.
