kidLife volunteers are the amazing people that spend each Sunday morning taking the truths of God and connecting that truth to our children.
Our children's ministry program on Sunday mornings is for Nursery through 6th grade.
Your child will be greeted by loving volunteers who will spend the first 15 minutes connecting with them and other kids during our “kid-connect “time. The kids will then head to “large group” where they will worship and learn the Bible truths in fun and creative ways. Following the Bible story, kids will head back to their rooms for “small group” time where they will dig deeper into the Bible truths that they just learned about during large group. We value providing an atmosphere for kids that is child-centered, small group focused, fun and safe!
Our children's ministry is secured by a check-in and check-out system. Each Sunday, please arrive 15-20 minutes early to check in your children at one of our kidLife computers. These computers can be found at our kidLife entrance or marked kidLife area kiosks. You and your child will receive a sticker with matching numbers. Please place each sticker on you and your child as this is your pass into our secure kidLife hallways. You will need this sticker to pick up your child from their class after service.
kidLife lives out our mission from our littlest kids in the nursery all the way up to our 5th/6th grade kids in Bridge56. We believe that two influences combined have greater impact than either influence could alone. That’s why at our church we love the color “orange” and use the Orange Curriculum. When we combine the light of the church (yellow) that’s us, and the love of the family (red) that’s you; we get a stronger more vibrant color – orange!
We will partner with you to help your kids:
We believe in large group experiences that will captivate your child’s attention and teach them more about God and His story. We also believe in small group environments where your kids can connect with the same leader and the same kids weekly and build friendships they can trust. We also provide materials (called “Parent Cues”) that offer different ways for parents to use key times in your day; like mealtime, driving, bedtime or when you are hanging out, to reinforce what's being taught on Sunday mornings. There is even an iPhone/Android app called “Parent Cue” that can help you!
We have other ways your kids can grow in their faith and get more involved such as: Vacation Bible School (VBS), Family Christmas Eve Service, Palm Sunday Sing, Bridge 56 Events, and Family Fun Nights.
These are just a few reasons why you and your kids will find that Community Church is a great place to belong. Come visit us, experience it for yourself, and find out more!
Nursery - 6th Grade kidLife is meeting face-to-face at the Mt. Pleasant and Alma Campus!
kidLife is also available each Sunday at mpcc.org/kidLife.
Here's what to expect:
We have thoroughly cleaned all our classrooms, reorganized toys and cupboards. We have individual boxes for crafts and coloring for all our children. We will space apart as much as possible and we will use different toys for each service. Masks are not required, for young children, but families can make that choice and do what they are comfortable with. Children in 1st-6th grade are strongly encouraged to wear a mask. We will ask all our volunteers to wear masks. Only one parent will be allowed to drop off and pick up, reducing our hallway usage. The rooms will be cleaned between services. We will encourage outside time when the weather permits. We will be spreading out children, using as many rooms as we need. Our online kidLife video lessons will continue to be made available as well.
kidLife families, as we engage online and from the comforts of our own homes, we want to provide you with a weekly kidLife Video Lesson, Activity, and Devotional. Please click below for links and resources for each Sunday:
