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, fellowship of the Church, and service to others. 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!
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are currently gathering online and we'd love for your family to join us. Follow us on facebook to make sure you have all the details and stay connected! Click HERE to visit the official MRBC KIDS Facebook page.
