JOIN US HERE ON SUNDAY MORNINGS AT 9:15 TO WATCH OUR MERCYKIDS SERVICE!

A Message from the MercyKids Team…

MercyKids exists to partner with parents to raise disciples who love God, love each other, and love our world. The mission is always the same but in this space of social distancing, the means look a little different…

  • Our weekly service is streamed each Sunday at 9:15a. If you miss it, we post the link immediately following the service on our MercyKids@Home page and on the page of our private MercyKids@Home Facebook Group.
  • Additionally, we have provided Activity Pages for all ages that coincide with this service and our Gospel Project for Kids lesson. These are available starting the Thursday prior on the MercyKids@Home page (check your weekly email for the password…not getting the emails? Join our mailing list!) and we post them to the page of our private MercyKids@Home Facebook Group – we encourage you to print these and have them ready for your kids to use on Sunday morning.
  • We also provide a Growing in Worship note-taking sheet each week for elementary kids to use to learn how to listen to and engage in the sermon during the live stream of our main service.
  • We will continue to share resources in the private MercyKids@Home Facebook for your time together throughout the week. These resources are available to help you engage with your kids spiritually, academically, emotionally, physically…and just for fun. There are activities for all ages – from toddlers to older children.

Remember…discipleship happens best in relationship. You know your kids and the dynamics of your family best and you are an amazing parent…you are going to keep being amazing in this space – even if you can’t or don’t use these resources during the suggested time and in the suggested way…or honestly, if you aren’t able to use them at all. Just being present with your children is the work of discipleship.

We continue to pray for you – that you would remember the Lord has equipped you for the job of parenting and we are here to support you in that calling. If you need anything or if we can help you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

The Vision

MercyKids is committed to partnering with families to raise disciples who love Jesus, love each other, and love our world. Our desire is to build relationships with families and their children, and it is our hope that kids see the beauty of the gospel and choose to follow Christ with their whole lives.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. (Psalm 127:3-4)

What To Expect

MercyKids welcomes children ages 6 weeks – 5th grade in every service. 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. We use The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum to walk through Scripture in a way that shows kids that the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but is one story of God’s love for us!

Our MercyKids check-in is located in the main lobby of our worship facility. When you arrive, you will be greeted by our Mercy Kids check-in team, who will help guide you through the check-in and drop-off process!

Family Devotionals

At MercyKids we do our best to love on, guide, and share the gospel with each of your kids, week-in and week-out. But we believe that we are only partners in shepherding your child’s heart. Our desire is to give you tools to have devotionals, conversations, and nights of worship at home so that you can be the main disciple makers. 

If your child is old enough, encourage them to begin reading their own bible during your family devotions. This is a great way to get them involved. Our prayer is that the home would be a place of significant spiritual growth and joy for your children, and we want to partner with you in making this a reality.

Parent Commissioning

We desire to partner with you as you raise your child to be a disciple of Christ and commission you as the primary disciple-makers in your family!

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!

If you’d like to sign up for Parent Commissioning, please let us know.
