Treehouse is a space built by our whole church family, where we nurture lifelong bonds with Jesus and his Church.

Children's Worship

At Christ Church Madison

Jesus invited children to come to him, and he taught his followers to believe like children (Mark 10:13-16). Children have profound inherent value, and possess an essential perspective. Their care and nurture is a most worthy lifelong calling. At Christ Church we see children as whole persons, full participants in the life of the church, and leaders in worship from the earliest age.
At Treehouse we welcome all of the energy, dreams, questions, and creativity that our children have. We pray that as God truly meets them, they will find a lifelong home in Jesus and his Church.

If you have any questions about Treehouse, reach out to our Children's Ministry Director Nicole Herriott.

What To Expect

Here's what a Sunday morning with children looks like at Christ Church. Our age-appropriate order of worship is built with similar liturgical elements as the adult service. It’s more than just childcare - children will worship, hear from God’s Word, pray together, and learn what it means to follow Jesus.


Kids of all ages are checked in before the service in the lobby, using our electronic system. Each child receives a name tag, and the parents/guardians get a matching pickup tag. 

Nursery Drop-Off

Children ages 0-2 are dropped off at the beginning of the service in their classroom. 

Older Kids' Send-Off

Children from age 3 through 5th grade join the adults for the opening songs of worship. Before the sermon, they are sent out with a blessing and guided to the classroom by their shepherd. 


After the sermon, during what we call the "Peace",  kids of all ages are picked up from their classrooms. The children join the adults for the rest of the service, including communion.

What if my kids are noisy?

We love and value that our children participate in worship and communion at the end of the service, and we're not threatened by their wiggles, noises, and messiness. Jesus said "Let the children come" and we hope our culture reflects his heart.


Our leaders and volunteers go through a thorough child protection process, including background checks and safeguarding training, and they are excited to worship with our kids.
