We are so blessed to have the opportunity to minister God's love to your precious children each week. Our children's staff and workers are committed to providing a safe and caring environment in every classroom. Please take a moment to read through these parent guidelines for the children's ministry at the MVC. If you have any questions or would like to know more about the Children's ministry programs feel free to contact our Children's Director Kelly Westberry.
To see children encounter the love and presence of God through the lives of the caring adults who serve them on a weekly basis.
To teach children foundational truths from Scripture and encourage them in their relationship with Jesus.
To see children embraced as active participants in the kingdom of God and to see them integrated into the life of the church.

Nursery - Birth - 3 years

Preschool - Kindergarten Class
This class is for 3-6 yr. olds, or preschool - kindergarten. Bible lessons will be creatively presented with lots of hands on learning and activities. Worship time, play time crafts, and snacks are a part of the weekly class schedule.
Elementary Class - 1st - 5th Grade
Children in our elementary class will participate in a Bible lesson/activity, games, crafts, and playtime. Stories and truths from the Bible will be presented using a variety of creative methods, including storytelling, drama, music, and video. Children will also have the opportunity to participate in a small group, where they will interact with scriptures, discuss and explore ways to live out Biblical truths, have prayer time, and build relationships with their peers and leaders.
Check In / Pick up
Children should be checked in at the connections table prior to the service. Instructions are posted next to the check in computer. You will receive nametags and a security # for your child. If your child has a food allergy, they will be given a red bracelet to wear.
