Children, youth and families have a very special place in our church family at MECC.
We offer a variety of opportunities to build relationships with one another as we continue in our journey knowing God.
Please see below where you can fit in – there is a place for everyone!
Due to Covid -19, these ministries are taking shape differently. Please refer to our calendar to see what events are taking place in 2020.
Sundays: During our Sunday morning services we offer a supervised nursery for our youngest of 0-3. During the message a children’s church is provided for our children aged 3-5. Beyond this we seek to minister to the whole family during the service as we encourage them to stay and worship together. See our Sunday School insert for details on this important ministry.
Family Events: Populated throughout the year are many opportunities to do things together as families. Please see the calendar for upcoming events.
Parenting Forums: In years past we have studied Tim Kimmel’s Grace Based Parenting series, but this year we will be starting a book club based on “Start with the Heart” by Dr. Kathy Koch, Founder of Celebrate Kids. She has spoken into the lives of parents for over 27 years and gives good solid advice in her book. We will meet at Koffee Grounds for 7:00 on Thursdays for a half hour of visiting and sharing, followed by an hour of book review.
Please consider joining us these nights. Over . . . . .
Tweens: is our program geared to grade 5 and 6 students from our church and community. We typically meet at the church once a month on the 3rd Friday (September 20th first one). During this evening we engage a large group of energetic kids in some games, activities, food and discussion. This year we will be looking into the book of James for our teaching. These nights are drop in for a cost of $2.00. This is a great opportunity to meet other kids from the neighborhood. Tween Bible Study is somewhat new for us as we are just beginning our second year. This year we will be meeting on Wednesdays beginning October 2nd from 7:00 – 8:00. This is open to any student in grade 5 or 6. Please contact the church for more details if interested.
Youth Group: is our activities geared to grade 7-12. We meet weekly at the church on Monday’s for Bible Study from 7:00 – 8:30. This year we will be studying the life of Daniel.
