Morningside Children's MInistries is clean, safe, and exciting place with trusted, trained leaders who help children (new born-5th grade) experience engaging stories from the God's Word within a framework of God's Grand Story of redemption. We desire to help even the youngest Morningsiders to grow in knowing and loving Christ through the community of our church family.
Our nursery provides a safe and clean environment where parents may leave their children (birth thru age 4) during church services. The nursery allows parents and other adults to engage in worship and learning with minimal distractions.
Our nursery ministry is divided into five different ages. The Infants (Pre-walkers), Toddlers A (Walkers), and Toddlers B (Runners).
Each nursery room is equipped with a variety of toys, books, and play areas to keep your little one engaged throughout the service. For the older children, we provide a small snack.
Each nursery is managed by adults who are screened before serving in the nursery ministry. Additionally, we have a system in place in case a medical or an evacuation emergency should arise.
We have a variety of those who serve from responsible teens with an adult to experienced mothers, fathers, and even grandparents!
Sunday school is the place where foundational truths are taught in a way that fosters understanding and passion in our children. Our classes are grade-structured and offer age-appropriate material to fit within the stage of life of each child. The Sunday School hour starts at 9:15 am, and we have classes for all ages of children.
During the Sunday worship services, children Ages 3–5 enjoy their own class time with an emphasis on the Word of God as it relates to their lives. For more information or to get involved, please contact Sarah Weaver.
During the Sunday morning worship service, children from Grades 1–5 enjoy the teaching of God’s Word in a high-energy environment with teachers who demonstrate a passion for teaching the next generation. For more information or to get involved, please contact Jonathan Harper.
Kids4Truth Bible Clubs
During the school year (September-May), Morningside offers a dynamic kids club on Wednesday evenings for children K3–Grade 5. Watch as your children grow in their knowledge and passion for the Lord during this high-powered time in God’s Word and great activities from 6:45 to 8:00 pm. For more information or to get involved, please contact Steve Lee.
Kids4Truth invites kids from 3 years old to 5th grade to come learn God’s Word in a fun and exciting way. Please sign up at church and get more info.
Buying a book for your student is optional. The emphasis will be on memorizing the verse of the week that goes with the lesson being taught.
Children (kindergarten-5th grade) are invited to be a part of the Morningside Kids' Choir. The choir sings regularly in church services at Morningside and annually joins with other children's choirs at other locations. The Morningside Kids' Choir also performs biblical musicals and cantatas.
The protection of our children is of highest priority. Therefore, it is required that all those who are working with our children fill out an application form and submit to a federal and local background screening.
