Church should never be boring and here it’s not!
We want kids to grow up knowing that following Jesus is normal. Peake Kids helps kids grow in Christ through Biblical teachings they can understand and fun activities they look forward to week after week.
We are passionate about equipping and empowering parents to lead their families spiritually and introduce their children to the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

All Children’s Ministry volunteers receive a background check and do not serve alone.
Each classroom is led by our incredible team of CPR certified volunteer leaders.
your children are safe
We want you to feel like your children are safe when they are with us, because they are. All staff, leaders, and key volunteers undergo routine background checks. We also have several on-site security personnel present and stationed throughout the Children’s Ministry hallway.
As part of our check-in process, children and parents receive matching printed name tags and pick-up tags to ensure their safety in our environments. The child’s name tag identifies their age group, any allergies, and a security code that matches the parent pick-up tag. At the end of the service, each parent picking up a child must provide the pick-up tag to the door host. A member of the Peake Kids team will ensure the security codes match on both the child’s name tag and parent pick-up tag.
CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
We will do whatever it takes to serve children with special needs in our community. We offer one on one assistance with a trained and caring volunteer team that is designated to create the very best experience for your child in an area that is safe, fun, and suitable to their learning needs. This ministry offers families much-needed time for their own spiritual growth and renewal.
SERVE WITH US
Children’s Ministry is made up of volunteers who use their gifts and talents to make it possible to reach children at Chesapeake with the life-giving message of the Gospel each weekend. While parents experience their worship service, children participate in exciting and active environments filled with worship, Bible teaching, and small groups. If you have a passion for kids, we would love for you to join our team!
