CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

KNOW | GROW | CARE | SHARE

KINGDOM-KIDZ

At Mission Church of the Nazarene, we call our children’s ministry “KingdomKidz” because it’s all about Kidz discovering their place in God’s Kingdom!

Throughout our KingdomKidz ministry, you’ll find safe and creative environments, Biblically-based curriculum, and volunteers with a passion for children dedicated to making MCN a fantastic place for kids to connect with God!

We invite you and your child to join with us as we strive to KNOW God in a saving relationship, GROW in relationship with Christ and others, CARE for others with our gifts and talents, and SHARE God’s love with those around us.   

  • Welcome to Mission Church Early Childhood Ministries, where we believe a child is never too young to learn about the love of God.

    From their first days in our infant nursery all the way to their last few weeks in our Pre-K department, children will discover the joy of Christ. Our teachers and caregivers love young children and are committed to caring for each of them.

    Because young children grow so quickly, both physically and mentally, we design each room to specifically meet the challenges and hallmarks of the different stages in early childhood development. These rooms are open for all morning services.

  • INFANT ROOM – (6 WEEKS – WALKERS)
    Our goal in this room is simply to develop a loving and trusting relationship with the little ones and their parents. Just like you, we want our infants to know we will hear their cries and we will respond. We believe that if they feel safe in our arms, they are one step closer to being safe in the arms of God.

    WALKER ROOM – (WALKING TODDLERS – 2YRS) 
    Our goal in this room is much as it is in the Infant Room, to develop loving relationships with children and their parents. However, we also know Walkers are beginning to enjoy music and stories. We spend a little time every Sunday singing, reading and laughing!

    TWO-YEAR-OLDS ROOM (2YRS)
    Two-year-olds are discovering their world at a rapid pace, so we work hard to introduce them to God’s world. We take walks, sing, color, and tell the stories of God in hopes that they will fall in love with the God who made their ever-expanding universe! 

    THREES AND FOURS ROOM (3 – 4YRS)
    With a little more independence and much more spirit, our three- and four-year-olds learn about God through centers and discovery play. They, too, enjoy walks around our campus. They also participate in SonShine Church (a singing and Bible Story time) along with our Pre-K Ministry. 

    PRE-K ROOM
    This room is for children about to enter Kindergarten. Their heads and their hearts are ready to put some of the basics about our Faith together. There are crafts, centers, and plenty of activity to keep them excited about coming to church and learning about Jesus. (We do ask that children in this class be potty-trained and that they enter this room the year prior to starting Kindergarten.)

  • HOW WE KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE
    Every child’s safety is our primary concern. We strive to make sure your child is taken care of both physically and emotionally. Here are just some of the ways we do that:

    • Safe and Secure Check-In
    • Screened Staff and Volunteers
    • Emergency procedures
    • A Healthy Environment

  • KingdomKidz Elementary Children’s Ministry at Mission Church of the Nazarene is passionate about partnering with parents to guide kids toward a love for God and a love for people.

    Our goal is for kids from Kindergarten through grade 6 to have fun learning about God and to grow in relationship with God and others! We provide a wide variety of opportunities for kids to worship and learn at their own level on Sundays and Wednesday nights, help make the Bible come alive, and get kids excited about God!

    I look forward to partnering with you and serving your family!

  • SUNDAYS

    9:00AM – Small Groups: We offer age-based classes where kids can grow deeper in their faith and apply Bible truths to their lives. We have classes for kids in Kindergarten through 6th grade.

    10:15AM Bible Quizzing: A challenging and fun-filled program, Bible Quizzing is designed to help kids memorize and hide God’s word in their hearts.

    10:45AM – KidzChurch: KidzChurch is a kid-friendly worship service where we intentionally focus on praise, worship, prayer and Bible truth.

    6:00PM – Caravan: Our Caravan program provides an opportunity for kids to learn about God in a format similar to scouting. Kids earn badges and even go to camp!

    Wednesdays

    6:30 – 8:00PM—M&M’s – Music and More! On Wednesday nights throughout the school year, kids are invited to join us for a program we call M&M’s. It combines games, small-group Bible study, choir and more! Our KingdomKidz choir gives the kids the opportunity to share God’s word through our high-energy musicals that we present twice a year during our morning worship services.

  • CLUB 56 LEADERSHIP

    We all need a place to explore and use our gifts and talents in God’s Kingdom. Club 56 Leadership takes some extra effort, but mostly just willingness to lead and serve (certain eligibility requirements).

    MUSIC ARTS

    Pre-teens enjoy moving to music and learning about worshipping God in unique ways through worship arts. They can minister through music, drama, or tech support during our Musicals in early December and Spring. Practices are held throughout the school year.
