MVPC Children, Youth, and Family Ministries
2022-2023 Children, Youth, and Family Ministries Program Year
Godly Play Kid's Ministry Program on most Sundays from 9 to 10 am (Kicks Off Sunday, September 11th)
Kids are invited to participate in our Godly Play Program where we share, wonder, and engage in our faith through storytelling and creative reflection time. Everyone is welcome - we have kids from preschool to middle school participating in the fun!
Nursery Program on Sundays from 9 am to Noon (Kicks off Sunday, September 11th)
Infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and younger elementary kids are welcome to come and play with our nursery team on Sunday mornings as their parents/guardians participate in classes, worship, or even just enjoy a cup of coffee in Good Shepherd Hall.
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 Sunday, September 18th)
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 Rebecca Holland so we have food for everyone.
MOPs Ministry to Moms from 9:30 to 11:30 am on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays (Kicks off September 20th)
Moms are invited to connect with other moms and mentor moms through a program of faith, food, and fellowship while their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers enjoy their own program and play time. It's a wonderful time for everyone!
