Leading children to trust and follow Christ by equipping them to live

a life of worship, a life in community and a life on mission.

Children’s Ministry

The Children’s Ministry at MacArthur Blvd leads families to grow together in their love for Jesus.  We empower parents and parental figures as they embrace the biblical mandate to disciple their children and the children of the next generation.  We equip children to boldly live a life of love for the Lord that displays His love for others.

A Life Of Worship

The Worship Gathering (10:30 a.m.) is the primary environment outside of the home where children are learning to live a life of worship. We provide a “Growing in Worship” document designed to lead children to engage in both the music and preaching. It also challenges them to hear what God is specifically calling out in their own life and to respond accordingly during the week. Growing in Worship copies are available in the church foyer each week.

  • Kinder through 5th grade participate in the Sunday Gathering with you. Our article, “Families Growing in Worship Together”, explains why we value children’s participation in the entire Worship Gathering beginning in Kindergarten. Pick up a copy of the Growing in Worship guide from the resource rack at the entrance to the sanctuary for activities specific to each Sunday.
  • If you feel like your K-2nd grader is not ready to grow through this experience, you may register him or her for Worship Care Kids. They have the option to learn with us through the What’s in the Bible? Church Edition curriculum.
  • Worship Care Buddies: Designed to support families and children (K-5th) with an understanding of their individual needs, this environment provides a low student-teacher ratio with a predictable routine, structured activities, and an engaging Bible lesson.

A Life In Community

Community Groups for Children (9:00 a.m.) are the primary environment where children develop unique Christ-centered relationships with each other around the word of God and prayer. We use The Gospel Project curriculum (by LifeWay) to build a strong biblical foundation as children learn how Christ and His Gospel fit into the entire story of the Bible, from creation to eternity. The Gospel Project follows the chronological order of the Bible over the course of three years.

Children may attend Community Groups while you, the parent/guardian, attend an Equipping Class, Adult Community Group or prayer in the sanctuary.

AWANA is our primary venue to equip children to live on mission with God. AWANA is for children 3 years old through 5th grade and our program meets throughout the school year.
