Children's Ministries

Children’s Ministries at MDPC serves families of kids from birth-5th grade. We are passionate about sharing the gospel with our youngest generation and we want to be a supportive presence and resource as you raise your children to know the love of Christ.

Nursery and Preschool

Ark Adventures is our Sunday morning program for infants through pre-Kindergarten. All Ark Adventure classes use a faith-based curriculum that focuses on building the character of God into the lives of our children. Our program is designed to accommodate children who attend Sunday School for multiple hours while their parent’s worship one hour and serve or attend a class during another. Our Biblical lesson provides the foundation for the entire morning, but different activities and formats are utilized during each hour.

Care is provided for infants, creepers, wobblers, and toddlers. Infants generally begin attending at 12 weeks of age, or when the parent and/or physician feel it is appropriate for the infant to be left. Children are placed in classes according to their age and development; therefore, nursery children may experience class adjustments as they develop throughout the year. Parents will be notified when a class change is necessary. Children who turned two years old after September 1 will remain in the nursery until the next program year.

Preschool / PreK

During the 9:45 hour the children enjoy learning and participating in an interactive Bible story, including prayer, and praising God. Followed with an age-appropriate activity that complements the lesson and then they have a snack together.

At the 11:15 hour the children attend Preschool Praise Time as they gather and experience the community of Christ. Through singing songs, a Bible Story, puppets, collecting offering, and play time, we are reminded that Jesus is the light of the world. This hour offers a second opportunity of enrichment in a new and exciting way.

The Galaxy is our Sunday School morning program for children in Kindergarten through the Fifth Grade at the 9:45 and 11:15 hours. In The Galaxy, we use a gospel-centered curriculum to teach the children about Who God is by studying His word and important stories throughout the Bible. Our goal is to help every child learn more about the Bible and its relevance to their lives. In starting this part of their faith journey early in elementary school, we pray that each child will experience God in a very real, tangible way.
