Youth Pastors, Parents, Teachers!! Before you start. Please read important information below.
Make it an event!
If live, organize your chairs, bean bags, balloons, decorations, lights, speakers, smart tv, projector, stage, and tables ahead of time. It is important to dedicate a space for the Children's Church Online Experience. When you do this step your students will take it seriously
It is easy to integrate our content for virtual experiences. If using zoom or teams, please plan a test run with the videos we provide. Many platforms require you to select audio when sharing your screen. Teachers, parents and youth pastors are encourage to moderate a discussion right after presenting our videos. Teachers can ask questions, give out points, offer prizes or ask students to write about what they were taught.
Schedule & Promote.
Organize and communicate a designated time for your children's church or children's event. It's great when your entire youth group is sharing the CCO experience at the same time.
Download any worksheets if applicable ahead of time!
If you choose to download worksheets, please do so ahead of time. It is best to have no interruptions during the CCO experience. This is really important for group settings. It is easier for families to prepare because you can easily start the CCO experience after you have downloaded the reinforcement resources. Funbooks and worksheets take the experience to a whole new level.
Avail yourself for your child or student questions, prayer requests, tears and fears. We hope it will be a fun, life changing experience. Help your students complete their worksheet or activity page if the CCO experience comes with reinforcement resources. All CCO experiences may not come with downloadable reinforcement resource materials. We hope after the CCO experience is over your students will leave ready to be on a mission.

What does CCO believe?
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired, and is a perfect treasure of heavenly instruction; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter; that it reveals the principles by which God will judge us, and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the world, the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be tried.
The true God.
We believe the Scriptures teach that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
