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.
Bible Fellowship: Sundays at 9:00 AM, CMC
Growing up I didn’t like school at all. It was boring, institutionalized and stale. We don’t want kids to associate their experience at school with Sunday mornings at Morningside. We make Sundays fun and exciting for kids of all ages. We reach children with the gospel of Jesus Christ on their age level or developmental stage.
Infants & Crawlers
When you stop by this area you may hear songs of worship that communicates God’s worthiness to be praised. You'll hear encouraging words spoken to your child from one of our great teachers. You'll see one of our volunteers holding and caring for your child’s physical needs.
Toddlers & Twos
Upon looking in this area, you will see children laughing, playing and learning. At this stage of life children are developing interactive skills. Skills like how to share, how to take turns and how to make wise decisions. Our workers are in this area because they are called to work with children. They understand kids and love kids. Your child will receive a Bible lesson and will work on a craft related to the lesson.
Threes & Fours
As you continue down the preschool hall you will come to the three and four year old rooms. Again our teachers are highly gifted, called and love working with children. In this area, your child will have a more structured Bible lesson and activities that are age appropriate.
AWANA: Wednesdays at 6:30 PM, CMC
Awana helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children who faithfully follow Jesus Christ. Our AWANA program offers a proven approach for evangelizing and discipling kids in the church and community. AWANA is offered to 2 year olds through 4th grade and includes games, crafts, music and Bible study. Wednesday nights at Morningside are full of fun and excitement for all! AWANA age groups are:
Puggles: 2 year olds (Clubhouse)
