Children's Ministry

The Children’s Ministry at Matthew Road serves to introduce kids to our Savior Jesus through the power of His Word, worship of His name, and the fellowship of the Church. Kids aren’t the church of tomorrow, they are the church today! We strive to disciple them to know, follow, and serve Jesus to see His Kingdom come, His will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. We invite you and your family to join us for this exciting adventure!

Sunday Mornings:

8:30 AM Service: Children 4 years and older join their parents for Worship.

9:45 AM Sunday School: Sunday school classes are offered for each grade (K-6). We are currently using LifeWay's Gospel Project curriculum, which presents the centrality of the gospel within Bible storying.

11:00 AM Service: All children, including those in the PreK (3's & 4's) class, MUST be picked up from their Sunday School classes to walk to worship with their families. Children's Church is offered during this service for children who are ages 3 yrs old - 6 yrs old and not in first grade yet. After singing and Scripture reading, children wanting to attend Children's Church will be dismissed from the service. In Children's church, the children will enjoy Biblical teaching and activities designed just for them.

Sunday Evenings:

5:00 PM Sunday School (MD²): This is a time of games, large group lessons and small group discussion.  After game time, (outdoors if weather permitting), boys and girls (K-6) meet separately.

WEDNESDAY Evenings:

6:30 PM Discipleship: During the school year, we offer AWANA for children 3 years by September 1st through 6th grade. Children work on Scripture memorization, have a time of Bible study, and play fun games. Click here for more information.

In the summer months, children participate in Wacky Wednesdays, which consists of Bible study, followed by wet and messy games on the lawn. The Wacky Wednesday Bible study is written to correlate with the adult Bible study that is also taught during that time.
