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
It’s time to “Come to the Castle” and hear stories from the King. We can’t wait to share both this theme and these stories with you. This month’s theme was inspired by Chris Tomlin’s new book, Good Good Father and we encourage you to get the board book version, Good Good Father for Little Ones, for your classrooms.
As we travel through the stories of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Hagar, Gideon, and Daniel, your preschoolers will learn that . . . …
God is always with me.
God hears me and gives me what I need.
God teaches me the way to go.
God protects me.
It’s a fantastic month that is sure to help your preschoolers know that God is with them all the time, and God’s got it.
Throughout Scripture, we can discover that God has been faithful to His people. He rescued them from slavery in Egypt. He sent Jesus to rescue us from our sin. He remained faithful to the early church as they spread the message of Jesus throughout the world. When we see how God gave His people what they needed to continue following Him, we can respond with determination believing that God will give us what we need to finish what we start.
When Jesus gave His disciples the incredible mission of spreading the message of the Gospel throughout the world, He didn’t make them do it alone. Instead, He sent the Holy Spirit to empower them to show faith and determination in the face of whatever might happen along the way. When we put our faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit empowers us to finish what we start.
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.
