Birth – 6th Grade
Showing Jesus to every kid by knowing them by name, inviting them into community, and sending them out with purpose
Meeting Sundays at 10am
Who We Are
MP Kids is designed to meet kids right where they are with engaging programmings, caring leaders, and partnering with parents/guardians. We know that kids have the greatest chance of building a lifelong relationship with Jesus when we all invest in the Next Generation together..
First Time at MP KIDS?
We’ve got you covered.
We are so excited to have you with us! We know that trying a church can be an intimidating experience, but we are ready for you and your kids. As you enter the building, our greeters inside will be willing and ready to walk your family through our check in process. We will get some basic information and any special instructions (allergies, special needs, etc) before walking your kids to the age-appropriate rooms. From there, our amazing small group leaders will welcome your kids in and help them feel safe and part of the class. At the end of service, bring your check out tag and be ready to hear all the amazing stories on the drive home.
What to Expect
When you arrive in MP Kids, you will check in your child electronically on iPads. If you are new, we will ask you to fill in your name, email address, and home address. We will then lead your child to their age-based class, where they will do activities based on the given Bible Story lesson that day. They will also leave their classroom to participate in a Large Group experience where they will be told the Bible Story and get to participate in worship. Afterward, they will return to their classroom to engage in a small group discussion to learn how to apply what they have learned in real life.
Nursing Mother's Room
We know that for the first several weeks, classrooms are not the ideal environment for your kid. That being said, we also know you may want some space outside of the auditorium to take care of their unique needs. We have a Nursing Mother’s Room just for you! We are streaming the service and provide comfortable seating and basic needs that may come up. Stop by our kids welcome desk for more information.
Here are some of the procedures we have in place to help ensure the safety of our students each week:
- All NextGen volunteers are required to pass a background check before serving with children and youth.
- During service, on-duty NextGen staff regularly check in with classroom teachers.
- Check-in and check-out procedure means all children are accounted for at all times.
- The doors to the children’s wing are locked during church service to control who enters while services are underway.
- Allergies are taken seriously. Fill out an allergy form at drop-off and pick up an allergy bracelet for your child.
Young Explorers Camp
Attendees: Current 1st – 3rd grade
Description: Camp is a wonderful experience and comes with amazing opportunities, probably for the first time! By getting away, kids have a chance to experience Jesus differently and on their own while also developing stronger friendships with those in their classes. This weekend promises to bring lots of laughs, singing, games and so much more!
