IT IS OUR DESIRE TO MINISTER TO FAMILIES AT EVERY STAGE OF LIFE.
Children are one of our primary focuses at Canyon View Church. We implement annual teacher training, and a screening program to assure a safe and abuse-free environment for children. We strive to provide great care for God’s kids, to lead them to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and to equip them from an early age to live life with Christian values and a biblical worldview.
A well equipped nursery is available for infants and toddlers (through age 3) during the worship service. Workers are carefully screened and an adequate number are present based on the number of children in attendance. Curriculum is offered for the 3 yr. olds. CVC also provides a “cry room” located above the Sanctuary for Parents to listen and view the Worship Service while taking care of your infants needs.
CVC offers Children’s Church during the regular worship service. Children from preschool (age 4) through 5th grade. The children are dismissed after worshiping with their parents. The kids enjoy Bible lessons, singing, games, and activities that emphasize the Bible point and verse. We even have snacks that, once again, bring the point of the story home to them. The kids are divided into age-appropriate groups for application, activities and discussion questions.
Leaders are carefully screened through an extensive application process. For more information, contact our Children and Family Ministry Team, Kristi Wheaton (406-363-8804) or Jana Wheaton (406-546-2658).

These highly anticipated nights are filled with games, prizes, souvenirs, snacks, and fun!

Club Serve is offered for Elementary Age Students. Club Serve teaches children the importance of serving our church and community.
In the spring of 2013, Canyon View Church added an entertainment patio to the west side of the building, which includes a playground complete with slides, swings, bars, climbing apparatus, and so much more! The playground meets all national public playground standards and is enjoyed by children of all ages.
The patio also houses a barbecue and eating area, a fire pit, an adult swing set, and a volleyball net. We look forward to utilizing this family space for many years to come!
