Children’s Ministry

We love children here and are excited to partner with parents in building a strong spiritual foundation in the lives of your kids. From birth through Grade 5, we offer weekly programming that will support the entire family in a growing relationship with God.  Throughout the year, there will be events that bring families together for adventures and experiences that will forever shape the way you see God and others in the world. This is the place you want to be for a life-giving, nurturing, and dynamic experience with God in the life of your family. Come and see…


Partnering with parents to lead children into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.


Journey Groups

Formerly known as Sunday School, these discipleship classes are for Grades K-5 and focus on chronological Bible storytelling as the primary tool for developing spiritual formation in children.

When:  Journey Groups meet on Sunday morning, during the 9:30 hour.

Children’s Church-Tabernacle

Kids worship for Grades K-5.

Kids start in Worship with their parents and are dismissed prior to the sermon. This dynamic gathering includes games, worship, creative arts, Bible teaching, and small groups. Tabernacle is fun, interactive, and high energy!

Kid Leadership Team

If your child is in 4th-5th Grade, they have the opportunity to serve on our kid leadership team. We want these older kids to lead like Jesus and be a servant leader. All children are trained, given a preteen spiritual gifts test, and plugged into a leadership role according to their gifts. The different ways our preteens can lead are worship team, small group leader, sound booth, prayer warrior, game leader, and skit host. Monthly meetings are held after Journey Groups to help these kids grow in their leadership.

When:  Sunday mornings, 11:00 a.m

 Children’s Choir- Kidz Jam

Every child loves to sing, and Children’s Choir is the perfect outlet for that energy and creativity.
With opportunities to perform in Worship and an annual performance; Children’s Choir has something
for everyone.  If you are in K-5th Grade, come join the fun!

When:  Wednesday nights 6:15 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

H2O (His to Own)

H2O is our Preteen Ministry for 4th-5th graders. We meet every third Friday night of the month from 6-8pm. Each time we meet, we have a different theme for the night. Apart from having a really fun time, the main purpose of this ministry is to help prepare kids for the transition to middle school.

We have topical lessons that we discuss from the Bible every meeting. A few that we’ve done in the past are bullies, the power of words, and plugged-in. We then break into gender specific small groups to have a hands-on activity relating to the lesson. It’s also a time to open up to our small group leaders and just talk about life. We strive to create an open environment where kids feel free to talk through the struggles of life, doubts in their faith, and anything else they have questions about. We also want this to be an outreach to the unchurched, so we highly recommend the kids bring a friend with them.

Please contact Pastor Garrett with any questions you have at garrett.oppel@mpbclife.com.
