MecKidz is where your child will engage through games, music, dance, challenges and more. We believe church should NEVER be boring! Your kids will laugh, play and have a blast while we partner with you, their parents, to lead them to know love and serve Jesus. You can join us online or in person. Either way, your kids will love it!
Every week volunteers communicate in large groups, help with check-in, lead small groups, help prepare for the weekend, serve with the tech team and dress up as our lovable mascot.
Whether you prefer to lead a small group, communicate to an entire room of kids, or anything in between, this is for you!
By learning and performing the Large Group Treehouse, or Storytime script, the Preschool and Elementary Communicators teach the Bible to kids in MecKidz in a way that captivates and excites them. Preschool and Elementary Small Group Leaders have the fun of building relationships with preschoolers and their families through games, crafts and Bible verse memorization.
Our Nursery Caregivers lay the foundation of trust by giving an infant or toddler a positive first experience with church and ultimately with Jesus. They also get to build relationships with the children and their families.
Our One-on-One Buddies build relationships with children with special needs and their families.
