What is GROW Kids?
A world where kids meet Jesus on their level!
GROW Kids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed with your child in mind!
Every Sunday all children (babies through 6th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are so passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way they can understand that we believe they will miss out on life-changing opportunities if they attend our services designed for adults and students (7th grade and older).
We would love to see you and your family visit GROW Kids at MCC this Sunday. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!
What to Expect at your First Visit
When you first arrive, stop by our Welcome Center where we can welcome you (and give you a first-time attender gift!). We will then direct you to our children’s check-in area where we can make sure we have all of the important information about your family and child on file. Children do not need to wear or bring anything special with them. Once you and your children are registered into our system and provided their identification tag, one of our volunteers will take you and your child(ren) to their age-appropriate classroom.
While they are there, they will spend time listening to messages and verses, read stories, or watch videos — with lots of time for playing and getting to know new friends, too! As there are always new children attending every week, your child should not be nervous about being the “new” kid — and our regular attender kids love welcoming new faces!
We also have a Nursing Moms room available for our mothers of infants, where you can watch the service in a private, comfortable environment with your nursing child!
While advance registration for our Sunday GROW Kids programs is not required, by pre-registering it will speed up the time to get you checked-in as a new family.Pre-Register Now
Your Child's Safety - How Check-In Works
We have a great team of people ready to help you check-in. As you approach the counter let them know your first and last name to look up your family. You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you. The parent pickup tag can be ripped in half if you have a large family and want to split the role of picking up the kids.
In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen in the auditorium. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer at the GROW Kids Check In Counter.
The Ride Home
On your way home, be sure to ask your child questions like, “What did you learn today?” and “Did you have fun?” It’s our hope that every child has a positive answer to these two questions, every week!
