Luke 18:16-17, “Jesus said, let the children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will not enter it.” The heart of our ministry is to reach children and families with the love of Jesus Christ and to challenge them to become a disciple of Jesus Christ.
SUNDAYS AT MVKIDS
Sundays at MVkids
Early Childhood Ministries (Birth – Two Years)
In early childhood, we create a loving, quiet, and calming environment for our little ones to discover and explore. At this age each precious child is unique and special, and we love getting to know each of them! We believe that even in these early years it is important to lay a biblical foundation. We do this by using a simple curriculum (for 18 mos. – 2 years) that helps these little ones discover truth about God through song, dance, games and crafts. We also equip parents and volunteers to pray specific blessings over each child every month.
Preschool Ministries (3 years – Kindergarten)
In a fun, loving and safe environment kids are encouraged to explore their surroundings, learn truth about God, and discover how they can respond to him. We also give kids a chance to create art & play interactive games that are connected to the Big God Story. Our large group time is for kids to enjoy high energy worship, respond to God through singing, learning scripture, and storytelling from God’s Word.
Elementary Ministries (1st grade – 5th grade)
Each Sunday the elementary students at MVkids experience an awesome worship service, beginning in Large Group and ending in their grade level Small Group. The 1st-5th graders get to experience a worship time together where we establish community and they hear stories both personal and biblical in a fun engaging way. Worship is led by our very own MVkids Worship Band; kids and their small group leaders are encouraged to worship our God with their whole hearts. This time is followed by Small Group where kids connect with others and grow in their relationship with Christ as they respond to God’s truth.
SUNDAY SONGS - LYRIC VIDEOS
Every Sunday @ MVKids we sing praises to the Lord. Here are some of the songs we sing with Lyrics.
APRIL @ MVKIDS
Pre & Kinder
Remember, this Easter could be the very first time EVER for some of the preschoolers at your church to hear the true story of Easter. And for others, this could be their first time ever even going to church. We have the awesome opportunity to tell them for the first time about how Jesus washed His disciples’ feet; made His triumphal entry; died and rose again; built His Church; and gave us the Great Commission.
We get to tell them the true story of how much God loves them and how He gave them His only Son. We get to tell them that Jesus is alive, and He wants to be their friend forever. We have one of the best jobs in the world! We get to share with preschoolers that Jesus is the best! What an honor and a privilege.
God has no beginning and no end. God is the creator and sustainer of the universe. He deserves all of our worship and praise for what He has done and continues to do in our life.
On the other hand, we are humans, created by God. And while we are the crowns of God’s creation, we are nothing without our Creator God.
Yet so often, we act like we are God. We allow our pride to take over and forget that any of our strengths or accomplishments would not exist without God. The only proper response in light of God’s greatness is to respond with humility in our interactions with the people around us.
BLAST is our new mid-week ministry for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. Molded after our youth programs, BLAST offers an opportunity for kids to dig deeper in their relationships with Christ and each other. There will be wildly outrageous games, good food and awesome kids to hang out with! We will talk about things that influence a kids walk with Jesus and find biblical answers to what kids should do when faced with a lot of "stuff".
BLAST meets Wednesday nights upstairs in the MVKids building 3 from 6-8 PM. Some special events and outings will be scheduled as well! A calendar with our weekly topics, games and activities will be provided every three months. So, have your kids invite their friends and be prepared to make new ones.
We had a great time this year at camp. We hope to see you all next year!
