MPPC Children’s Ministries

A foundation of faith for children, from birth to elementary school, is established through programs and activities designed to nurture and support young families through Bible studies on Sundays, after school activities on Wednesdays, and monthly fellowship opportunities.

Christian Education for Children of All Ages

Sunday Mornings | 9:45-10:45 a.m.

Childcare is available for toddlers and infants on Sunday mornings during both services and Sunday School. Worship services include 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., and Sunday School at 9:45 a.m.

The Beginner’s Bible class is where a child’s journey towards a lifelong love of God’s Word Begins. (Room 102)

This curriculum is based on spiritual practices, which are incorporated through play, discovery, biblical exploration, faith conversation, and relationship. For our younger children, this means simple and tangible practices to connect to God’s love. (Room 203)

At this age, this curriculum seeks to deepen children’s faith formation and to create a safe space for children to ask big questions and claim their spiritual identity as children of God. (Room 204)

At this age, Celebrate Wonder serves as a biblical guide to help children make meaning for their lives. (Room 205)

Kids Praise - Children's Worship

Last three Sundays of the Month | 11 a.m. Worship Service

Our “children’s church” program meets the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month. This worship experience for children, PreK through second grade, will include a story that is based on the weekly Bible reading and activities to help them better understand the message. This volunteer-led experience begins following the children’s message during the 11:00 a.m. service of worship, when children will head to Kids Praise in GH 122 (Grade 1-2) and GH 121 (PreK 4’s-K). At the conclusion of worship, parents should pick up their children from the appropriate classroom. 

If you would like to volunteer to lead, please contact Suzy Edwards at or use the button below.

Wednesday Nights, January-May and September-December

KIDZROCK (Wednesday Night Program) is a program designed for children Pre-K through 5th grade for fellowship and fun! Kids are divided into three age groups for lesson, games, crafts, choir and dinner every Wednesday night from 4:30-6 PM. You do not need to sign children up, but we must have SIX VOLUNTEERS to make the program run.

Typical children’s Wednesday night schedule:

  • Bible Time and Crafts – 4:30-5:30 pm – With fun, colorful illustrations EMOTIONS engages little one’s minds and hearts to help them practice and understand good and bad emotions given to us by God. Scripture and Bible stories will let children understand anger, fear, sadness and joy.  (SB 102)
  • Jesus and Me (JAM) – 4:30-5:30 PM – We think of some emotions as good and others as bad. Our 5-week program, EMOTIONS, teaches kids that God made every part of us, and no matter how we are feeling, we can always turn to Him for help. Each week children will learn a different emotion through a Bible story, crafts and hand on activities. Emotions covered are ANGER, FEAR, DISGUST, SADNESS, and JOY. (SB 211)
  • Kid’s Alive – 4:30-5:30 pm – Kids will engage in life-impacting explorations that engage them in activities, stories, prayer and much more. Tweens will learn about expressing God’s love to others through caring actions and healthy attitudes with the help of God’s Spirit…incorporated into fun lessons are games, trivia and fellowship.  (SB 208)
