Kids

We love kids, in fact, some of us are just big kids ourselves. Kids are the next generation of the church and we want to partner with you and see that they get the best of what we can offer.

We strive to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and educational — giving them age-specific lessons to keep them engaged and wanting to come back each week. Whether weekend only or throughout the week, we have something for kids of any age.

    Children steadily walking up age 2

    We are aware that at this age children begin to explore the world around them. Our trained staff strives to encourage this gift of curiosity in a safe environment through movement and song.

    Preschool
    Age 3–Kindergarten

    Our volunteers encourage the natural and curious desire of this age group by providing a more structured, yet stimulating, environment for them to learn and grow. Each class is provided with a variety of learning experiences through creative Bible teachings and exciting worship songs. 

    Three and Four year olds learn each week through a curriculum from Willow Creek Community Church, called In the Beginning… Jumping into God’s Story. Kindergarteners learn each week through 252 Basics curriculum from the reThink Group.

    Elementary
    Grades 1–5

    For this age group we use a combination of large and small group experiences, teaching through music, drama and fast-paced fun. Small group time reinforces the lesson of the day through life application activities. Each child is assigned to one of our small group leaders for the school year to build relationships. We currently use 252 Basics curriculum from the reThink Group.

    To get more details about joining this team, please email SpecialEDG@MountainCC.org.
