MOPC has these primary aims for our ministry with children:



Teach them to know and love the Lord.


Provide a solid foundation of biblical principles, themes, and stories while encouraging them to apply

spiritual truths at home, school, and play.


Provide opportunities for Christian fellowship and foster an understanding of worship and

mission both in the church and outside its doors.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL

Who: 4yrs old-Kids leaving 5th Grade

When: One week each summer

What: Kids have fun learning about God through crafts science, Bible stories, recreation, snacks, drama and music, and become more aware of what it means to show God’s love and serve others by supporting a local or global mission project during the week. Our wonderful volunteers provide an amazing, fun-filled experience for all involved!



SUNDAY SCHOOL

Who: 3 yrs. old through 5th grade

When: Sunday's at 9:45 a.m.

What: Children are divided into small group age groups to allow one on one sharing and hands on activities that deepen the Bible point. The Bible curriculum chosen meets children’s needs mentally, physically, and spiritually. This hour of Bible learning is appropriate for families who have a desire to see their children connect with knowledgeable, loving and consistent adults while growing deeper in their relationship

with God.


SOLID ROCK 3RD/4TH/5TH

Who: 3rd, 4th & 5th Grade

When: Wednesdays 6:30-8:30 p.m.

What: We get together around the table to share in a meal that one of our amazing parents have provided.  After the meal, we dive into a Bible study filled with activities, games and discussions.  The purpose of this time is to allow our preteens to ask difficult questions, goof off together, and explore friendships in a safe and supportive environment. We go on adventures together up in the mountains over a long weekend. 


We serve the community to allow them to develop a compassion for those whom God calls us to love.  You may find us journaling after a quiet meditation time or launching mini pumpkins across the parking lot with a catapult.  We walk the fine line of balancing childhood and adolescence with these kids every week.
