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
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. We are dedicated to helping families grow in their faith. 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 3 and under. 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.
Faith Road NEXT Generation (Sunday Mornings)
Faith Road NEXT Generation is the Children's Ministry at Maricamp Road Church of Christ for children ages 4 - Fifth 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. Our Sunday Morning gathering takes place in the Fellowship Hall during worship at 10:30am. Parents are encouraged to check their kids in as early as 10:15am. For the next hour, children will participate in a program "on their level" with interactive songs, games, hands-on activities, and a Jesus-centered lesson and discussion. Each week, parents will receive an email reviewing the material, and providing ways for families to grow together at home. This year, we are using Group's "Digging Into The Life of Jesus" curriculum. We encourage our parents to get involved in volunteering. If you're interested in helping, please contact the church office or see Dusty.
The first Sunday of every month, children will be in the Auditorium with their families for worship. At the beginning of worship, children will be called up to the stage as we sing some of the songs they've learned. Then, we'll have a short Bible lesson reviewing what they've learned the previous month, and previewing what they'll learn in the upcoming month. After that, children will go back to sit with their parents and worship together as a family. Coloring sheets and crayon packs are available on the desk at Guest Central in the foyer.
Faith Road (Wednesday Nights)
Faith Road is our Wednesday Night program for children ages 4 - Fifth Grade. Faith Road meets on Wednesday nights from 7:00 - 7:45. 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."
