Mission & Values

Our mission is to raise up the next Spirit-filled generation
who will change the world.
This is accomplished through our values: the Word of God, worship, prayer, fun, and friendship. We read God’s Word daily, allow it to transform our lives, and teach our children to love and follow it. We connect our hearts to God in worship and invite the Holy Spirit to fill us with His presence and power. We model and inspire a prayerful life so that our children will become mighty prayer warriors who experience the supernatural power of God. We create a happy, engaging environment so our children will love coming to church! We love, grow, learn, and play together.

What to Expect

Grades: kindergarten-5th grade

In CT’s Playhouse, we love to worship God together and build friendships with each other.  


We worship God with dancing, singing and offering with our CT’s Playhouse band, and have an active and super fun game, a memory verse song or rap, dynamic teaching from the Bible, a time of response to the Word of God, and small group time where kids meet in groups with adult leaders to connect and pray. Before and after the services are times for the kids to play and make new friends!


At our Tuesday night meeting, we have a fun pizza dinner, live worship with the CT’s Playhouse worship team, an offering, a creative Bible lesson, and a variety of individual and group prayer activities. Our heart for our CT’s Playhouse prayer meeting is to train our kids to pray- to actively teach our children how to pray. We emphasize personal prayers, intercessory prayers (prayers for others), and Kingdom prayers. We tell our kids that coming to the CT’s Playhouse prayer meeting makes their worship and prayer muscles strong! Similarly to Sundays, we have free time to play before and after the service.

CT's Playhouse Lead: Natalie Thompson

Natalie was born and raised in the great city of Chicago. From a young age, she knew she wanted to serve and teach children. She obtained a Bachelors degree in Mathematics and a Masters in Teaching. Natalie had a career as a high school math teacher for Chicago Public Schools before being called to serve in the children’s ministry at Chicago Tabernacle. Natalie’s heart is for the hearts of children to be transformed by the love of Christ so they can be a light in their schools, neighborhoods and homes.

Serve in CT's Playhouse

It’s our heart to raise up the next Spirit-filled generation, and you can be a part of doing that in a vital point in the life of a child, their elementary years. If you would like to make a difference in the life of a child, serve in CT’s Playhouse!
