MERCYhouse Kids is the Sunday morning children's ministry at MERCYhouse for children ages 0-12 during our 9:15am Sunday service. The mission of MERCYhouse Kids is to partner with parents to build a firm gospel-centered spiritual foundation for their children. We use a curriculum from LifeWay called Explore the Bible which seeks to teach kids at church AND resource parents with helps to continue spiritual formation at home.
Our Vision for Children
That they will know Christ, understand His Word, grow in their own spiritual walk, and be able to share the love of Christ with others.
Parents are encouraged to bring younger children (0- 5 yrs.) to our children's ministry area before 9:15 am, while older children (6-12 yrs.) will be dismissed during the service after the first two songs and the reading of scripture. You will find the entrance to our children's ministry area located in our downstairs cafe.
