Our children’s ministry is a growing and exciting part of the life of the church. Kingdom Kids learn worship readiness and are encouraged to think of PPC as a fun place where they can learn and ask questions about their faith. A few highlights of our children's activities include, children’s sermons are shared each Sunday morning during the 11:00am Sanctuary Service, MDWK Kids on Wednesday evenings, and VBS offered each summer. In addition to our regularly scheduled fun, we host several other special events throughout the year. Our team of leaders and volunteers have their whole hearts in their time with Kingdom Kids and always strive to make sure each child is comfortable and has a great time.
WHO ARE THE KINGDOM KIDS?
Each Sunday morning, we offer Kingdom Kids Sunday School where children ages 3 years through 5th grade learn about the importance of caring for one another just as God cares about us. They learn the stories and teachings of the Bible in a nurturing and creative environment, led by dedicated leaders who have a love for Jesus and a passion for early childhood education.
Kingdom Kids Sunday School
Kingdom Kids Wing
(Lower Level of Education Building)
On Sunday mornings, we offer nursery care for children newborn to 2 years old the lower level of the education wing from 9:45 am to 10:45 am and 10:50am to 12:00pm. Our nursery volunteers provide a loving, nurturing, safe, and engaging environment for our youngest members and visitors.
Children ages 3rd grade and up are invited to participate as an acolyte in the worship service by lighting and extinguishing the candles. The light is a symbol of Jesus’ coming into the presence of the worshiping community. Before the extinguishing of the last altar candles, the acolytes relight their “candle lighter” and then process out into the narthex. This symbolizes that Jesus Christ is for all people everywhere. It also symbolizes the light of Jesus Christ going out into the world where believers are called to serve.
WHAT IS MDWK KIDS?
MDWK happens each Wednesday night for kids from preschool to 5th grade. This program runs from January to March, and from September to November, breaking for the Lenten and Advent Seasons. MDWK is a chance for kids to take a midweek break together as they sing, play games, make crafts, and learn about Jesus.
