MPPC Children’s Ministries
It’s all new for children’s ministry. From Sunday mornings to Sundays nights, the names have changed and so has what we do and how we do it!
Christian Education for Children of All Ages
Sunday Mornings Beginning Sept. 18 | 10-10:50 a.m.
We invite all elementary children to join us on Sunday mornings as children engage God’s Word through study, discussion, activities, video and more! We use the Celebrate Wonder curriculum as our guide to help children deepen their faith. Classes: K-1st grade (SB 203), 2-3rd grade (SB 204), 4-5th grade (Meet in SB 205).
Our preschool program uses The Beginner’s Bible lesson series that includes activities, stories, and short videos to help children understand God’s love for them. Classes: 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s ( Meet in SB 103)
NURSERY AND CHILDCARE
Nursery and childcare is available for toddlers and infants throughout Sunday mornings.
Kids Praise - Children's Worship
Last three Sundays of the Month | 11 a.m.
Our “children’s church” program is a worship experience for children in grades K-2 that includes a weekly lectionary Bible story and activities that help them connect the story to their life. Kid’s Praise! begins following the children’s message during the 11:00 a.m. Service of Worship when children will head to Kid’s Praise! in Grace Hall 122. Parents should pick up their children immediately following the conclusion of worship in Grace Hall 122.
If you would like to volunteer to lead, please contact Dan at email@example.com.
Sunday Night Live
Sunday Nights are a time for all of us to come together – children, youth and adults! While your child is learning about the Bible, or singing songs to praise God, you can also be participating in a study of your own! Register your child and your whole family for Sunday Night Live today. Typical children’s Sunday night schedule:
- 4:45-5:30 p.m. Kingdom Choir (Elementary), Angel Notes (Preschool)
- 5-5:30 p.m. Dinner ($8/adult, $5/children five and under)
- 5:30-6 p.m. Bible Time & Crafts, JAM (grades K-2), Kids Alive (grades 3-5)
It is crucial that we have volunteers to lead our children, if you would like to volunteer, please contact Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Angel Notes is MPPC’s youngest youth choir for children ages 3-5/Pre-K. Siblings who are younger than the recommended age are welcome with a parent present. During this time children will learn about God through classic children’s music!
The Kingdom Choir is MPPC’s youth choir for K-5th grade. Children will have the opportunity to sing fun music in harmony and learn about faith.
Bible Team & Crafts is for our children ages 3-5, where they will learn Bible stories, sing songs, and learn through play about God and the many lessons of the Bible.
JAM (Jesus and Me) is our Sunday evening program for K-2nd grade children. They will enjoy a year long journey through the Bible with stories and crafts that bring the stories and lessons of the Bible to life.
Kids Alive (Grades 3-5) is our Sunday evening program for 3rd-5th graders! We hope this will create a “youth group” feeling for the children where they can grow through Bible study, games, and crafts. We will be using the Bible Trivia curriculum to engage our young people in new and exciting ways!

Children’s Sunday provides an opportunity for the children of the church to unite the prayers for worship and then assist in leading all four worships services on Children’s Sabbath. In addition to celebrating the children of our church family, Children’s Ministries also collects a special offering that offsets background check expenses for our caregivers and teachers.
Bring your children — all ages are welcome — and join us for worship. If you prefer, you may entrust your children (birth to 4 years) to our nursery caregivers who have undergone child protection training and background checks.
Vacation Bible School
This traditional week of learning, dancing, playing, and fellowship takes place in the summer each year, and we would love to see you!
Second and Third Grade Bibles
This eight-week “2nd & 3rd Grade Bibles” class will be fast moving and children who participate will know how to use their Bible and what the Bible is about by the end of our time together. They will also receive a NIV New Adventure Bible from the church. Children who participate are asked to attend each week, come prepared, and be ready and willing to learn in a fun way. Participants will engage in active learning through hands-on games and activities that include using their Bible.
First Grade Worship
First Grade Worship is a six-week program designed for our first graders to learn the different components of worship and the basic elements of the sacraments. Our prayer is that they will continue to worship with their families and attend Sunday School weekly.
