Wednesday Evenings 6:20-7:30 (Sept - March)
Pioneer Club is a Christ-centered, Bible-based ministry on Wednesday evenings for kids ages three to grade 5. The ministries goal is to help children put Christ in every part of their lives. Through club activities, such as Open Bible time, activity, singing and Bible Memory work, club members grow as whole persons with a variety of skills. Pioneer Club also helps children form healthy relationships with their family, peers, and adults.
There are five different clubs:
Skippers - for children age 3 whose parents are involved in the program.
Scooters - ages 4 and 5 (only for the children of volunteers)
Voyagers - Grades 1 and 2
Pathfinders - Grades 3 and 4
Trailblazers - Grades 5
Trailblazers are now using Kids Evangelism Explosion curriculum. This curriculum teaches them the Gospel story and how to evangelize to others. This programs design is to have an adult to child ratio of 1:2. This allows for personal growth and the opportunity for deep relationships between adult and child.
Vacation Bible School
VBS Registration is now open!
We’d love to have your children join us at Shipwrecked VBS, which is coming to MRC on June 4-8 from 8:45-11:30 am. Kids will have a blast discovering that no matter the circumstance, Jesus rescues! The morning will be filled with singing, Bible stories, crafts, games, snacks and so much more! VBS is open to Kindergarten-6th graders (based on their grade next fall), and you can register your kids at https://mrc.breezechms.com/form/vbs201713. (If you volunteer to help at VBS, we offer nursery and classes for 3 year olds and preschoolers.) We need lots of wonderful volunteers like you! If you’d like to help out, please sign-up at https://mrc.breezechms.com/form/vbsvolunteer64. Paper versions of both registration forms are available at the Information Booth. If you have any questions, please feel free to talk to Tracy Cleveringa, Jamie Kamerman or Melissa Dykstra.
Sunday School is held every Sunday morning the months of September through May. It is held between the two services at 9:35 AM. There are classes for children ages 3 through 5th grade as well as classes for Jr. high through adults.
Preschool - 5th Grade
All kids preschool through 5th grade are using The Gospel Project curriculum. The Gospel Project (TGP) is a chronological curriculum where kids are taken from Genesis to Revelation. They also hear each week how each story has a bigger picture, and that bigger picture is Jesus.
Children and Worship
Children and Worship is a specific worship service for ages 3 through Kindergarten children. Children and Worship is held every 2nd and 4th Sunday (Oct - April) during the morning worship services. It is made up of a gathering, a greeting, praising God through song, hearing God's word, responding to God's word and blessing.
