Zookidz is a dynamic ministry geared for children from birth through 5th grade. We strive not to just provide ‘childcare’ during our three weekend services, but to allow children a place to grow spiritually and an opportunity to meet Jesus. If your children are interested in being a part of our ministry, be CAUTIONED because your own little Zookidz might just become…

BIBLE BELIEVERS:  We are continually emphasizing Bible Stories that impart Godly character.

PRAYER WARRIORS:  Right from the start, we make a point of praying passionately for others in need.

GENEROUS GIVERS:  We cheerfully give our cash and coins to the Kingdom of Christ.

SCRIPTURE SCHOLARS:  We practice memorizing God’s Word so it can be hidden in our hearts.

WORSHIP ENTHUSIASTS:  We aren’t afraid to sing and shout how great we think God is.



Since CLC is a missions-oriented church, we decided it was okay if we borrowed the word “Waumba” from Swahili. It means “Creator” and since our nursery is the initial place where babies will be introduced to God and His creation, we thought it was appropriate! Our hope is that the care they receive in their earliest years establish a love for the House of God forever. It is important to us that every newborn and toddler is embraced from the moment they arrive to the time they are picked up. We are accomplishing this by filling our nursery with wonderful workers and volunteers who are trained in childcare and CPR to give the optimum care possible. Our fun, clean and engaging toys help too! We are striving to create a safe and loving environment for our babies to learn about the One who made it all!



“Critter Land” is a class for our preschool population where our goal is to teach them all we can about God’s love. It’s here we introduce the basics of everyday living with Jesus that we hope will stick for a lifetime. We consider ourselves successful only when we see 3, 4 and 5 year olds discovering that they love Jesus and they want to ask Him into their hearts. During and up to that moment we are committed to embracing these eager learners by letting them know they are precious in the Hand of their Creator.



It’s no secret we live in Mis(zoo)la… therefore we thought it was appropriate we created a place strictly for K-5th graders that is a mini city just for them. Most days it is more like a Zoo than a metro, but we love it just the same! This is a radically fun environment complete with ‘flying’ team points, ‘brain balls’, Bible bucks and a kid-geared worship experience. Our passion for elementary aged children is to see them become young men and women of God who are deeply devoted to their Savior. It’s a radical environment designed to impart one passion… living for God.  (Zoo City is currently using the “Young Explorers” curriculum by Gospel Publishing House)
