At Morningside, Discipleship is not taken lightly. We believe, in His Great Commission Charge to churches in Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus makes it clear the we are to “make disciples.” We understand that families are busy and have lives outside of church too. That is why we strive to use every teachable moment with your child to reiterate the importance of knowing God and loving Him. Whether it’s Bible Fellowship or one of our Wednesday night programs, we are intentional in our discipleship approach to children’s ministry.
When it comes to families with children, we have two priorities that we hold in high regards.
Safety is the main priority here with our Children's Ministry. So whether you are visiting for the first time or have been a long time member, please understand that your child is precious to us and we value their safety. Every worker, volunteer and childcare provider undergoes a national background check before they start working with your child. These background checks are revisited every 2-3 years to ensure the safety of all our kids.
Our second priority is to accommodate guests and visitors and meet your needs. From priority parking to ease of check-in we want your experience at our Children's Ministry to be a positive one.
Our Children's Ministry wants kids to become passionate Disciples of Christ, who value God’s word, study God’s word, apply God’s word and Share God’s word. We want to introduce children to Christ then help them grow in knowledge and understanding of Him.
To be the place Columbus families with children worship.
The Mission of the Children's Ministry is to work alongside families to educate, equip and empower parents to be the Spiritual Leader God has called you to be
There are six core values that the Children's Ministry staff and volunteers hold to and teach kids. We begin at the earliest age to instill these values in our kids.
1. God created me
"He created them male and female, and He blessed them and named them Man in the day when they were created." Gen 5:2
2. God loves me
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
3. God has a plan for my life
“…I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” John 10:10
4. Sin separates me from God
"Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned." Romans 5:12
5. God sent His Son for me
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:7-8
6. God is worthy of my worship
"O come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with Psalm. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods." Psalms 95:1-3
