Maricamp Kids Children's Ministry
Jesus said "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." - Matthew 19:15
Maricamp We believe that children are an important part of the Kingdom of God. They are important to Jesus, and we want to be known for bringing children closer to Jesus. We place a big emphasis on our Children's Ministry here at Maricamp. Maricamp Kids is the Children's Ministry at Maricamp Road Church of Christ for children - from birth to 5th grade. The vision for our children and their families is to give children and parents the tools and opportunities to become fully devoted followers of Jesus- at church and at home. You can take comfort in knowing that we offer something for children of all ages. Listed below is our programming for Sundays and Wednesdays. Throughout the year, we also offer different opportunities for families to connect with each other - family movie nights, service opportunities, and other ways to grow together.
We have a staffed nursery for children ages 2 and under during Bible Class and Worship. It's located directly across the hall from the auditorium. Feel free to stop in when you drop off your little one, and enjoy worshipping with peace of mind- knowing they're being taken good care of.
Bible Class (Sunday School)
Our Sunday Morning Bible Class takes place in the Fellowship Hall from 9:30am - 10:15am. Parents of first time children will need to fill out an info sheet (1 per family) with contact information. During Bible Class, kids will participate in “The Gospel Project” - a comprehensive curriculum that goes through the Bible in 3 years, connecting each story with Jesus. We have 3 different classes: Preschool, K-1st grade, and 2nd-5th grade. Parents will get a sheet about what the kids learned so they can review it during the week.
Kids Church (Sundays During Worship)
After Bible Class, children and their parents will head to the auditorium for worship at 10:30am. After communion, we dismiss the kids to “Kids Church” in the Fellowship Hall. We sing, watch a short Bible lesson video, and then dismiss to our groups- Preschool - 1st grade and 2nd-5th grade. During group time, kids will go through the lesson with their teachers. Parents can come check out their children at the end of worship. We encourage our parents to get involved in volunteering. If you're interested in helping, please contact the church office or see Miss Kyla.
First Sunday Family Worship
The first Sunday of every month, children will be in the Auditorium with their families for worship. At the beginning of worship, children and parents will be called to the front to sing some of their songs up front with Pastor Jeff. Then, they’ll have a short Bible lesson and prayer with Pastor Beef. After that, children will go back to sit with their parents and worship together as a family.
Faith Road (Wednesday Nights)
Faith Road is our Wednesday Night program for children ages 4 - 5th Grade. Faith Road meets on Wednesday nights from 7:00 - 7:45 in the Fellowship Hall. This innovative approach to learning on their level includes hands-on learning, solid Bible teaching, and trips through 3 different exciting classrooms: Sweet Creations, the Game Room, and the Museum of Bible History. Children connect through Bible stories, memory verses, and "The Good Samaritan Project."
