parent commissioning | April 18

During Parent Commissioning, we come together to celebrate the fact that you want to raise your child up in a God-centered home! On the day of this celebration, we will bring you up on stage and pray for you as a church family, commissioning you as parents and committing to come alongside you as a church family as you raise your child to know and love Jesus!

welcome to mercykids!

MercyKids exists to equip and encourage parents as they fulfill their calling to raise disciples who love God, love each other, and love our world. Our desire is to build relationships with families and it is our hope that kids see the beauty of the Gospel and choose to follow Christ with their whole lives!

Currently, our MercyKids environments are in a phased reopening process.

As of May 2021, the following programming options will be available at our two locations

  • Providence Road 9 am  + 11 am Service – programming for children ages 6 months – 5th grade
  • Northeast 4 pm Service – programming for children ages 6 months – 5th grade

This programming includes a lesson, worship, games, and free play. There are a limited number of spaces available in each of these classrooms/spaces. To register for MercyKids, simply complete the main service RSVP and indicate the ages of your child(ren) and which service they will attend MercyKids environments. In order to complete your registration, parents and caregivers must read the updated policies and procedures and indicate on the main registration form that you agree to abide by the safety policies and procedures as outlined.

On Sunday when you arrive, please first visit the check-in table for name tags, temperature screening, and directions. 

If you need to cancel your MercyKids RSVP for a Sunday service, please e-mail Abby Carpenter – abby@mercycharlotte.com

What to Expect

Currently, our MercyKids environments are in a phased reopening process. Each weekend, we seek to engage every child with the gospel. We do this with fun and age-appropriate activities that demonstrate what it means to love God, love each other, and love our world. 

To register for MercyKids Outside, simply complete the main service RSVP form and indicate the ages of your child(ren) and which service they will attend MercyKids environments. In order to complete your registration, please read the linked document below and indicate on the main registration form that you agree to abide by the safety policies and procedures as outlined.

What if none of these environments are right for my child(ren)?

If none of the MercyKids environments are right for your child, we encourage you to attend either of our services, where children are always welcomed and their attendance celebrated! We have coloring pages and Growing in Worship activity pages at our MercyKids table to help your child engage with the main service content. If you choose to engage online, make sure to check out the Growing in Worship sheet for kids. This “fill-in-the-blank” style worksheet helps your kids listen and learn from our sermon content each week.

Regardless of how you choose to attend on Sunday – we look forward to seeing you!
