CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

children singing

Our Children’s Ministry teach children how to love Jesus and to apply what they learn to everyday situations. We are dedicated to sharing the Good News of Jesus to children in a fun, loving, and in a manner appropriate to their ages.  Our goal is to help our children develop spiritually, emotionally, socially, and physically.

Children's Moments

This "contemporary" sermon is given to children at both the 8:30 and 11:00 worship services.  The moment is related to the sermon being delivered to the adults later in the service.  In these moments the children are invited to the front of the church, with the message delivered to them by the pastor or lay person at their level both mentally and physically allowing them to feel a part of the service.  After these moments the children are dismissed to go to their parents, Kids For Christ, or the nursery.  An inspiration and lesson appreciated by all.

Kids For Christ

Children ages 21/2 -5th grade may participate in Children’s Church during the 11:00 a.m. Worship Service. A curriculum is used during this time which includes various forms of learning incorporating a story from the Bible, scriptures, Christian videos, snack, recreation and crafts.  Additional opportunities for the children are given during Advent and Lent ending with a celebration for the season. 

Kids Praise Choir

Kids Praise is for children 3 years – 6th grade.  They meet on Wednesday evenings beginning at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m.  The first half hour the children have a meal with parents. Then they are introduced to Bible stories, crafts, games, and lots of upbeat music that follows.  Twice a year Kids Praise produces a musical drama related to passages from the Bible (usually advent and spring).  This group of children lead by Kathy White and Judy Neal proves to be an enthusiastic, energetic, group and always demonstrate to the adults new love for the Lord. 

Kids for the Arts

Praise Dance 

We offer two Christian dance classes here at Morris on Sunday evenings at 5pm. The first class is for 2nd – 5th grade and the second class is for Pre-K – 1st grade.  The classes will be 45 to 60 minutes in length.  Ballet shoes are recommended (white for girls, black for boys).  Cost $10/mo. (suggested)

Praise Art 

We are so excited to offer a new ministry!  An art class taught by Janet Parker, a retired art teacher from Kanawha County Schools and accomplished artist! This class will be limited to 10 students grades 3rd – 5th.  Cost $20 for supplies.

 

Vacation Bible School

This program has been a staple for MMUMC's summer Children’s Ministry for many years.  Reaching out into our surrounding community we have always felt that VBS is extremely important not only to the children but to the life blood of the church.   The children are divided into young and older groups and go to different centers in a group or team atmosphere.  Curriculum is selected for that year on its Bible message, music, and ability to be "fun" learning for the children.  Many years the characters themselves from the Bible have participated in VBS with the children.
