Cornerstone Church of Knoxville offers Children's Ministry on Sunday mornings designed to provide a safe and fun environment for children. We are grateful for our dedicated team of over 200 volunteers who serve by teaching and caring for the children. While parents attend the Sunday meeting, classes for infants through 11 year olds offer age-appropriate activities designed to teach children about God and His Word.
The philosophy of Children's Ministry (CM) is to supplement and reinforce the efforts of parents in teaching their children, while enabling the parents to participate in the worship of the Savior and engage in the preaching of the Word of God.
Thinking about visiting for the first time? Signing up your child is easy! Simply go to the Guest Check-In window in the lobby and we will be glad to serve you and answer any questions you may have. You are welcome to stay with your child and observe the class when you visit.
Curriculum and Family Devotionals...
In 2013, we began using the Gospel Story for Kids Curriculum. This curriculum is saturated with the gospel, walks through the Bible one story at a time, and offers devotions for families to use at home. We are excited about the devotions in the books Long Story Short and Old Story New (available at the CCK Bookstore or online), because:
- the devotions are easy to use, preplanned, and take 5-10 minutes each
- families and the church move at the same pace through the Bible
- each week families will focus on the gospel in each and every story
Most weeks follow along with the Gospel Story OT and Gospel Story NT devotional, except for holiday weeks.

Serving in Children's Ministry
CCK's Children's Ministry is volunteer-supported, which means we are always in need of help! If you are looking for a way to serve, please consider serving in CM. This is a fun, practical way to serve the kids and parents in our church.
In order to provide the safest environment for these children, all CM workers must be a member and fill out a volunteer application. The information on this application will allow us to run a criminal background check. The minimum age for volunteering is 12 years old.
