Our Children’s Ministry programs are designed to help form and support the spiritual values that are a critical element in the character development of a child. We endeavor to treat each child with love, while presenting strong, Christ-centered programs and Biblical curriculum. Below are several opportunities we offer for children to build a better relationship with God, family, and their community. Contact Lori Allen, our Director of Children's Ministries, to find out more (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Some people see the Bible as a collection of stories with morals for life application. But it is so much more than that. Sure, the Bible has many stories, but it is also full of poetry, history, songs, prophecy, letters — even a love letter. When you tie it all together, something remarkable happens. A GREAT story is revealed. One story. The story of redemption through Jesus.
The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered curriculum that explores Scripture and how the gospel transforms the lives of those it touches. Over a three-year plan of study, each session engages kids in the gospel, following a chronological timeline of Bible events - presenting redemption through Jesus like kids have never seen it before! Every week, these stories come to life through video, music, activities and more.
Each Sunday evening MCC provides from 5:00 - 6:30pm a high energy community experience for children. KiC@Nite helps kids build healthy relationships with caring Christian adults, peers and most importantly, Jesus Christ. We are Christ-centered, Gospel-rooted and kid-focused. We begin with a large-group celebration, then jump into age specific small-groups where children experience a deeper exploration of the Bible. At the end of each evening, everyone reunites for a closing celebration with upbeat worship.
- KiC@Nite Elementary (4yrs old - 3rd Grade):
It's like having VBS every Sunday with upbeat, high-energy Bible learning with fun, interactive worship, cool games, skits,
crafts and experiments giving unique ways to explore the Bible hands on! Kids will spend their time doing the Bible
lesson, not just listening to it.
- KiC@Nite Preteen (4th - 5th Grade)
: Kids explore their faith and life together in a fun, energetic and exciting setting. Games will be a feature each Sunday.
Kids learn answers to the tough questions preteens face about God, themselves and others.
Every July our front lawn becomes a mass of energy as children and volunteers gather for the most exciting week of the year! VBS is a singing, shouting, crafting, and dancing trip back in time where we explore Biblical themes and narratives that point us to Jesus Christ.
This year's program will run Tuesday-Friday, July 17-20th, 9:00am - 11:30am.
Fair warning: because of space limitations, we have to cap registrations; the waiting list usually begins to form within three or four weeks of registration opening each April.
