About Explorers League


Explorers League is the Children’s Ministry of Cornwall Church. We have multiple kid-friendly environments ranging from birth to 5th grade available during all weekend services.

Each environment has been designed so that kids can engage and explore faith at their age level making Explorers League a children’s ministry that is both exciting and relevant. Be our guest; come see what God is doing as we explore each child’s passion for discovery, creativity and adventure.

Our mission

Explorers League exists to inspire kids to develop a lifelong relationship with Jesus.

PRESCHOOL

Explorers League Preschool is our weekly environment created especially for your infants through preschool-aged children. We know things are busy at this stage of life and your children are learning and growing in amazing ways. We are ready for them!

Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths. At this stage, you can plan on a lots of playing, singing, dancing, and laughter in every experience and by 2 years old you will see fun crafts and big games.

We look forward to helping your preschoolers develop a lifelong relationship with God. It is our hope that your child will learn in our Preschool program:

God MADE me.
God LOVES me.
Jesus wants to be my FRIEND forever.

Explorers League is available on Saturday at 5:00pm and Sunday’s during the 9:00am and11:00am services.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS

We want to provide the best possible experience for children with special needs. We want every child to be in an environment where they can flourish. We work with parents who have children needing assistance because of development or physical challenges to enable this to occur. Please contact us to learn more: mikef@cornwallchurch.com

ELEMENTARY

Explorers League Elementary is our weekly program for kids kindergarten through 5th grade offered during each of our weekend services. We believe the Bible should never be boring, that worship can be really loud and that great small group leaders always care.

The focus in Explorers League Elementary is our small group environment. We want to place another trusted adult in their life. A small group leader will have a different level of engagement with your kid and they’ll be saying the same things you are saying. They will be someone your kid can look up to, have fund with, and help them navigate through difficult times. That’s why it’s important to make sure your child connects with the same friends and same leader at the same hour every weekend! Explorers League is available on Saturday at 5:00pm and Sunday’s during the 9:00am and 11:00am services.

Our curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in their lifelong relationship with Jesus. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick:
“I need to make the WISE CHOICE.”
“I can TRUST God no matter what.”
“I should TREAT OTHERS the way I want to be treated.”

WEEKEND SERVICE

Your first stop is at the Explorers League Family Check-in Center located on both the upper and lower entrance. If you are new to Explorers League, the First-time Visitor Check-in is located on the first floor in the lobby. At this location, you will find helpful volunteers who can answer any questions and provide your child with a temporary name tag, parent’s ID and a Family Registration card.

New Families are always encouraged to check our Explorers League! Parents are always invited to sit in the classroom and enjoy the experience. To receive a tour of Explorer’s League, stop by the Children’s Ministry Welcome Center during service times and see one of our dedicated volunteers!

Every child must have a name tag when entering Explorers League. All name tags are obtained at the Explorers League Family Check-in Center. Upon receiving the name tag, parents will also receive a parent tag. The number on the parent’s tag corresponds to the number on the child’s tag. We use this number to notify you during the service. If needed your number will be displayed on monitors located in the auditorium. This parent tag is also required to pick up your child at any of the Explorers League classes. Once you have all the tags needed, volunteers will then direct you to the classroom.

We recommend arriving 15-20 minutes before the service begins to ensure enough time to check your child and find seating.

parent child dedication

At Cornwall, we dedicate children, believing they are gifts from God. This follows Jesus’ example displayed in Mark 10:14 & 16: “ ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’ And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.” We dedicate and do not baptize children, believing baptism follows a person accepting Christ as Lord and Savior; our hope and prayer is that your child will someday make that decision when he or she is able.

This is also a parent dedication. We believe that God’s desired role for parents is a challenging one, requiring trust and dependence on Him to fulfill it (Deuteronomy 6:4-7).

If you wish to sign up for a parent/child dedication, we ask that you attend a short information session beforehand. This session is designed to give you as parents the resources to be the primary spiritual influencers of your kids, and to show you the ways that the church can come alongside you in that. We’re excited about supporting your family as you dedicate yourself and your child to God, and as we pursue Christ together!

Contact us for upcoming Parent-Child Dedications.
