MOPC Children’s Ministry strives to be a place where children and families feel a sense of welcome, belonging, and community.  We hope to provide opportunities and teaching to grow and strengthen the faith of our children, in God and Jesus Christ, both relationally and intellectually.


CHILDREN'S CHURCH

Who: 3-year-olds through 5th graders


When:  During both 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Sunday Worship Services.


What: Children begin the worship experience in the sanctuary with their parents. After a short Children’s Sermon, kids will be invited to leave the main service (escorted by adult staff and volunteers) to attend Children’s Church.  During Children’s Church they will have an age-appropriate lesson on the same passage of Scripture that the Pastor is preaching on, in the main sanctuary.  Children will also have prayer time, complete a craft, and have free-play.


NURSERY CARE

Who: Babies and toddlers under three-years-old


When:  Sundays 8:30 a.m. -12:00 p.m. 


What: Nurturing care by trained and consistent staff members for our littlest ones during their time at church.  Through play, song, and art, our nursery staff models Christ’s love.  We believe it is never too young to share God’s love with our children.

SUNDAY SCHOOL


Who: 3-year-olds though 5th graders


When: Sundays, September 19, 2021-May 22, 2022 (except for some holiday weekends), 9:45 a.m. -10:45 a.m.


What:  Children are divided into three separate, age based, classes.  These classes are taught by some of our fabulous volunteers.  During Sunday School, children study the Bible, share “highs and lows” of the week, pray together, and play games. 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 345

Who: 3rd, 4th, and 5thgraders


When: Wednesdays, September 15, 2021 -May 18, 2022, 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.


What: Small Group for our pre-teens, led by wonderful staff and volunteers.  This time allows kids to learn about God, ask questions, have fun, pray, play games, and explore friendships in a safe and supportive environment.

PARENTS’ CAFÉ


Who: Parents of children and youth


When: Sundays, September 19, 2021-May 22, 2022 (except for some holiday weekends), 9:45am-10:45am


What:  We recognize that parenting children and teens can be both extremely wonderful and extremely challenging, sometimes simultaneously.  We also recognize that parenting shouldn’t be done alone, it truly “takes a village!”  Parents’ Café provides a relaxed environment for parents to learn, pray, fellowship, and support each other.

FELLOWSHIP ACTIVITIES


Who: Children and families


When: Various times and days throughout the year


What: Throughout the year families gather to build relationships, support one another, and just have fun!  MOPC offers a variety of fellowship activities for children and families.  Past activities have included park days, bowling, swimming, hikes, camping, and cook-outs.

SERVICE PROJECTS

SUMMER ACTIVITIES

Vacation Bible School

Summer Playdates
