FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4
GRACE PLACE - For children from Kindergarten through the Fifth Grade
Each Sunday, during the worship hour, children ages Preschool- 5th Grade participate in group worship, singing and age appropriate Bible lessons. Children also work on elements of worship such as offering, prayer, and praise.
GRACE PLACE - For Preschoolers
The preschoolers at MPC are a very important and special group of individuals who are regarded as gifts from a God that we want them to know.
Their classes are held during the worship service following the ‘Time With the Children’. They are ushered by their teachers to one of the Joyful Journey Preschool classrooms. The teachers are dedicated to the preschoolers and have had a passion for being associated with this age group for many years.
The formal curriculum can vary from year to year, but is chosen with teaching the gospel and God’s amazing, powerful love for them. A Bible story and songs are shared followed by a related project. When free time allows, the children are able to enjoy the classroom setting in play time. As weather allows, we also enjoy the proximity of the playground. We love and celebrate our children!
Our nursery is ready to receive children ages birth - preschool. It is staffed with volunteers from the congregation on a rotation basis.
