NURSERY and Preschool ministry

Our nursery and preschool ministry is  committed to providing a nurturing environment for children that reinforces the biblical values parents are instilling at this young age. Listening to  parents and submitting our ministry to Christ are essential to what we provide.


We provide the following care times for babies and preschoolers:

  • Morning Worship Nursery (birth through age 3) – Sundays @ 10:30 AM

The following information is provided to aid in making your child's nursery experience a positive one: 

  1. When you drop off your child, please leave any specific instruction you have regarding food allergies, diaper or potty needs, and any other necessary information.
  2. Upon check-in, you will receive a pager OR a label with the child's unique identifier when you check your child in to the nursery.  Be sure you have received your pager or label before you go, as this is a primary security measure. This is the way you will be in touch with the nursery staff. You will be paged or texted if you are needed for any of the following:

     -to nurse (please indicate at drop off)

     -if your child becomes ill

     -an injury occurred

     -your child is unable to be consoled after 15 minutes

     -your child has a disciplinary issue

    When you pick up your child at the conclusion of the service you will turn in the pager.
  3. Generally, you can simply keep the A-B-C’s in mind!

A - All of your child’s belonging are clearly marked with his/her name.

B -  Both you and your child have been assigned a pager/pager number.

C -  Child is free of all cold, fever, diarrhea, rash, runny nose, cough, and infection. This is very important to the health and happiness of all our children.



Children's Ministry

Sunday morning 11:00-11:45am

Children's ministry - Kid City - at MorningStar is focused on coming alongside parents and reinforcing the biblical lessons being taught at home.  Our vision for Kid City is the same as the church's vision...Making disciples who are gathering, growing, and going!

 

Gathering - Children, ages 4 - 5th grade, participate in praise and worship with their families and are then dismissed to KidCity.  They participate in a children's bible lesson  together as  a large group.

 

Growing - The children then participate in small groups/growth groups after the large group Bible lesson.

 

Going - In Kid City, we seek to be intentional about pursuing the Great Commandment—to love God and love others!  Children participate  in church ministry  opportunities with their families.


Through Kid City, we seek to instill a love for God and a love for others in children that will grow for a lifetime.  


Children's worship includes music, videos, drama, Scripture memory, games, and a variety of fast paced elements designed to provide children with a fun atmosphere to hide God's Word in their heart.  Our children's worship is parent-friendly for those parents who may wish to join their kids weekly or from time to time.


Kid City Curriculum

Bible Studies for Life: Kids

In conjunction with the Levels of Biblical Learning, the curriculum provides age-appropriate experiences for kids of at every age and stage of development, from babies to preteens. Each session is designed to help teach kids to:

-Apply the Bible to real life through Bible stories that guide them in decisions and teach them how to honor God throughout their day-to-day lives.

-Reach biblical milestones through the Levels of Biblical Learning, a proven framework for growth in God's Word from birth through sixth grade.

-Engage in discipleship through the weekly practice of Bible skills, study, Scripture memorization, and missional awareness.

 


Youth Ministry

Youth ministry at MorningStar is focused on identifying students unique God given purpose, developing them in that purpose, and releasing them to live it out. Through Growth Groups and Worship, we seek to nurture a love for God and a love for others in students that will influence the trajectory of their entire lives.  A brief description of Youth Growth Groups and Worship can be seen below...
