At MPC, the goal of Children’s Ministries is to provide a loving and safe environment for children to share in the love of Jesus Christ. This also includes peace of mind for our parents, knowing their children are well cared for and safe.
We serve children from infancy through 5th grade along with their parents. Through a Bible-based curriculum, songs and crafts, we offer the opportunity for children to get to know Jesus. For more information, contact our Director of Children’s Ministries Gwen Smith at GwenS@MPCLife.org.

We worship Sundays at 9:00am. Beginning Sunday, June 6, 2021 we will be welcoming children age 4 to 5th grade back to our Sunday School Summer Program, “Children’s Church”.
