Christus Victor

Making Christ Known

We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) congregation growing in the likeness of Christ by:

Worshiping, praying, and studying God’s word;
Being together with other people; and
Acting in faith through words and deeds both inside and outside our church walls.

Pray -N- Play Kids - 2017/18

Building blocks open up a child to the wondrous power of creative discovery, small motor development, and physical dexterity -- all through the simple act of play!

Pray and Play Kids provides children ages 0-5 with building blocks for life through interactive play.

  • BLOCK ONE: Building for Reading and Writing
  • BLOCK TWO: Building Faith
  • BLOCK THREE: Building Other Basic Skills

Let Pray and Play Kids help you and your child access the building blocks for a creative and faith-filled life.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month from 9:30 to 11:15 at Christus Victor for free play, Bible story time, singing and rhymes, snack, and craft/activity time.
