Preschool ministry

Our preschool ministry is  committed to providing a nurturing environment for preschoolers 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 preschoolers:

  • Morning Worship Nursery – 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 specify any specific instruction you have regarding snack options, diaper or potty needs, and other necessary information.
  2. You will receive a pager when you check your child in to the nursery.  This is a primary security measure and means of communication so be sure to keep it with you the entire time your child is in the nursery.  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

Children's ministry at MorningStar is focused on coming alongside parents and reinforcing the biblical lessons being taught at home.  Through Growth Groups and Children's Worship, we seek to instill a love for God and a love for others in children that will grow for a lifetime.  These programs are designed to work in conjunction with spiritual markers that combine the spiritual influence of the home and the church.  A brief description of Children's Growth Groups and Worship can be seen below...

Children's Growth Groups- Sundays 9:00-10:15am

Caring leaders intentionally teach and apply the great truths of God through the Children Desiring God Curriculum. They are committed to connecting with parents on a weekly basis so you can thoughtfully engage your child and further train them in God's Word.  So you can know what to expect, check out the breakdown of what your child will be learning about during a two-year cycle here at Morningstar. Your child will be escorted to the Worship Activity Center (WAC) for a time of children's singing where you will be reunited prior to the start of service.

Children's Worship - Sunday morning 10:30 - 12:00pm

Sunday morning is a multi-generational experience at MorningStar.  The first half or our worship celebration includes people of all ages singing, praying, giving, and rejoicing all together.  Children ages 3 through 5th grade are dismissed to a worship experience that is kid specific for the second half of the service.  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.  We currently use First Look and 252 Basics material as our curriculum.  We maintain a kid-friendly atmosphere so that parents who prefer to remain together for the entire worship celebration may do so.  Our children's worship is parent-friendly for those parents who may wish to join their kids weekly or from time to time.

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 Youth 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. These programs are designed to work in conjunction with spiritual markers that combine the spiritual influence of the home and the church. A brief description of Youth Growth Groups and Worship can be seen below...
