Godly Play Kid's Ministry Program on most Sundays during worship (Kicks off in September!)
Elementary aged kids are invited to begin in the Worship Service before being invited during the Prayers of the People to head to the Godly Play Program where we share, wonder, and engage in our faith through storytelling and creative reflection.
Nursery and Play Room on Sundays from 10 am to Noon
Infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary kids are welcome to come and play with our Nursery and Play Room Team on Sunday mornings while their adults enjoy worship.
Sunday Worship at 10:30 am (and MVPC Nursery for Infants, Toddlers, and Young Children)
Families of all ages are invited to participate in Sunday Worship at 10:30 am In Person or on Zoom. Gather where your whole family will be comfortable. Allow your youth and kids to color or draw while they listen and participate in worship. Encourage them to ask you questions, wonder, and talk about what they noticed in the worship service. It's a great time to connect and help your kids grow in their faith! For those of you coming to In Person Worship, the kids and youth are welcome to use one of the worship activity bags. MVPC welcomes the joyful noises of families worshiping together either in the Sanctuary or, if your family prefers, in the Fireside room where there is more room to run around with comfortable couches.
Youth Group on most Sundays from Noon to 1:30 pm (Kicks off in September)
Youth in Middle School and High School are invited to be a part of the MVPC Youth Group that meets most Sundays after worship for a time of food, fellowship, and faith. Please RSVP with Pastor Rebecca so we have food for everyone.
