Our Sunday School and Youth programs meet as follows every Sunday:


Sunday School is for children ages three through 5th grade.  They will meet in the Hospitality Center at 10:00 AM for their own interactive Chapel service before going to their classrooms.  They will join their families in the church at the Peace.

Nursery – Birth through 3 years old Professional nursery care is available for children birth to 3 years old.  Joan and Shelly are dedicated each week to the loving nurturing care of our youngest parishioners. A paging system is available.

Sunday School – 3 years through 5th grade Sunday school begins at 10 am in the Hospitality Center with a special chapel service designed to engage children and introduce the Bible story.  After Children’s Chapel the children process on to Sunday school and meet their parents in church at the start of the Eucharist.


Youth programs are for 6th through 12th graders.

Christ Church Cranbrook’s Youth Program focuses on 6th to 12th graders and offers a number of opportunities for young people to build relationships, serve their community and strengthen their faith.

6th through 9th graders meet most Sundays of the month at 9 AM.  We’ll be in room 201.

Service Opportunities – Youth participate in service projects throughout the year with our Mission Partner, Focus: HOPE in Detroit. They also serve as crew leaders each summer at Vacation Bible School, and can work any time in Christ Church Cranbrook’s Community Garden. Specific Outreach opportunities for youth will becoming soon.

Acolytes – Seventh graders and older can serve in the Acolyte Program.  Sixth graders can join this ministry in the Spring.  Acolytes are required to be at church a half-hour before service starts.  There are four Sunday mini-retreats (11.30am-1.30pm) throughout the year, and a picnic at the end of the year.

Confirmation – Confirmation is available for youth who will be 15 years old or older who want to make an adult affirmation of faith.    This year’s Confirmation will be Sunday, April, 17, 2016.
