Love God.   Love Others.  

Do Your Best.   Have Fun.

The children's ministry at Cornerstone Church exists to walk alongside parents as they seek to bring up their children in a God-honoring way. Our goal is to help them Love God, Love Others, Do Their Best and Have Fun. Currently there is no prior registration required for your child to attend. When you arrive, you can take your child directly to the children's wing and our staff will take it from there.

Please note: all children's programs are available during the 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. services. On the first Sunday of the month only, nursery is available during the 8:30 a.m. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 203-272-5083. Or you can email us at

Your First Visit

When you arrive at church, make your way to the Children’s Welcome Center located in the children’s wing of our building.  One of the Launch Pad team members will meet you and assist you in getting your child checked in.  If you have any questions when you arrive, please ask one of our ushers for help. They are here to assist you with anything.

How Does Check In Work?

What Do I Do?

When you check-in your children, you receive their name tag as well as two claim tickets that you use when it’s time to pick them up. As part of the registration and check-in process, we’ll ask for your cell phone number so we can contact you in case you are needed during the service.

Who Is Watching My Kids?

All of our Launch Pad ministry staff and team members have been fully trained, undergone background checks and are in good standing with the church. Your children will be supervised at all times until you come and pick them up.

What if there is an emergency?

During the check-in process we ask for your cell phone number. If we need to contact you for any reason or if there is an emergency, we will text/call the cell phone number that you have provided us to let you know what's going on. 

Launch Pad Groups

At Cornerstone Church we work hard to create a safe, fun place where kids can learn about God. Each week children take part in a lively environment filled with games, songs and interactive lessons that teach Biblical truths. We have classes for infants through 5th grade every Sunday. Check-in begins 15 minutes before each class.

Ages: 6 weeks-3 years

Contact - Nadine Cortese

Landing Pad is a place of exploration, wonder and delight.
We believe that babies and toddlers are not too young to start learning about God’s love for them.  Children will experience the love of God through songs, stories, and playful interaction with peers and caregivers. Each week team members endeavor to create a fun, interactive and safe environment where they can begin to grow in their understanding of God.

Ages: 3-5 years (potty trained)

Contact - Nadine Cortese

Learning Pad strives to create an environment for children where they marvel at who God is and what he has done in the past, as well as rejoice in  His plans for them in the present. They learn they are loved by God and created to love and honor Him. A relationship with God will be encouraged through memorizing Scripture, acting out Bible stories, singing and signing praise songs, and prayer.

Ages: 6-12 years

Lead - Sandra Bucci

Equipping Pad focuses on helping elementary-aged kids move from knowing about God to knowing God.  The focus is on helping them develop their relationship with God. Our Equipping Pad team will help children build a biblical foundation for their lives, grow with friends and leaders, and love being at church. All of this is done in a highly interactive environment that will truly engage each child.

Ages: Nursery to 12

Lead – Doris Doucette

Our Special Needs ministry focuses on seeing the “whole” family and enabling them to come to church and attend service.  We want parents to know their child is in a safe and loving environment where they learn hands-on lessons about the love of God. Not only do children learn powerful lessons about the love of God, they begin to develop friendships that will last a lifetime. Parents also receive encouragement through our monthly "Parents Night Out."
