Children’s Ministry

We are here to serve you and your family, and to provide a biblically sound, fun and safe learning environment for your children. Our children’s ministry includes children through 5th grade, with our youngest children (birth through three years) in our Nursery.  In addition to Nursery and KidZone during Sunday service (and childcare during Adult Bible Fellowship), we have various activities throughout the year; these include Backyard Bible Extravaganza (BBX) in the summer and an overnight weekend retreat (WinterBlast) in the winter for our 2nd-5th graders. The kids always enjoy holiday events including an annual Easter Egg Hunt and a Children’s Drama every Christmas Eve. Throughout the year there are various fellowship events for kids and families to help foster relationships outside of Sunday morning.  In addition, it is important to our church to offer service opportunities in order to give kids hands-on experience serving and sharing the love of Christ with others. If you have any questions or concerns regarding Children’s Ministry at MLEFC, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sunday Mornings – ABF Childcare, Nursery & KidZone

Nursery is provided during the worship service for children from birth through age 3. Children may be dropped off in the nursery before the worship service begins, or they may stay with you until the children are dismissed for KidZone if you prefer.

Children ages 4 though 5th grade begin by worshiping with their families in the sanctuary during the worship service.  Children will be dismissed from service prior to the sermon, at which time they will head to their assigned classrooms. If you prefer, your children may remain with you through the service.

We are excited to be using The Gospel Project curriculum (LifeWay).  This curriculum offers a 3-year chronological look at the Bible from Creation to Revelation, with the ultimate focus being to point kids to Jesus Christ in every lesson.  The same lesson is being taught across all age groups each week, which makes it easy for families to have further discussion at home.

We also offer childcare during Adult Bible Fellowship, before service. Signup for childcare in the foyer in advance, if possible. If not, we are still very glad to have your children!

Backyard Bible X-Travaganza (BBX)

Each summer we bring Vacation Bible School into our backyards!  One or more families host this week-long event at their home.  It has proven to be a wonderful outreach event where the love of Christ is shared with kids and their families in our local neighborhoods & communities.
