Jesus often honored children as people who fit well into His Kingdom plans. We seek to follow that model as adults who love God help them to know and grow in Christ.
At MEFC we have Sunday School for all ages. For children ages 2 through 6th grade, we have a dedicated staff of teachers who build relationships with the students and their parents, and demonstrate Christ’s love to each student. In addition to learning from God’s Word, our kids sing songs to share during Christmas and Easter services, and represent Christ in various places in the community. Here is what they are learning…
Pre-School: Children learn that the Bible is God’s Word and that He loves and cares for them. Every child is encouraged to be actively engaged in the Bible story through three simple steps: play, listen, and talk. Each lesson is designed to lead them to experience God’s love and know Jesus. We begin teaching the importance of relationships and living as part of the body of Christ at these early ages. We also offer a variety of ways for staff to link with parents and to work as a team in helping kids build faith at home throughout the week.
Grades 1 & 2: We help students learn to read and explore Bible stories and verses that they are able to understand and remember. They learn that God wants their trust and obedience, which leads them to Jesus, their Savior. Our curriculum helps teachers to confidently teach the Bible in contemporary and creative ways that lay a foundation of God’s Word in children’s lives.
Grades 3 & 4: Our curriculum for these grades builds on the previous years, helping the students to know Christ personally and to follow Him. Each week, whether we are teaching from the Old or New Testament, children learn to understand and apply the Bible to their own lives.
Grades 5 & 6: Our teachers develop meaningful relationships with their students to help them develop a strong foundation of faith. Based on 24 key Bible passages, students discover what the Bible says about popularity, success, failure, friendship, rules and more. Kids develop Bible study skills, grow in relationship with Christ and maturity in Him, and respond by serving Jesus in church and community.
"And anyone who welcomes a little child in My name is welcoming Me and caring for Me."
Nursery care is available for children from birth through age 3.
Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, Christ-centered environment which stimulates infants and toddlers to thirst for God and frees adults to wholly worship and grow in the Lord.
Our core values:
STEWARDSHIP--We will go out of our way to maintain the health, safety, and security of each child. We view parents' trust in us as a sacred responsibility.
EXCELLENCE--We will care for each child as if he or she were our own.
PRAYER--We will be faithful to pray for the children in our care.
DISCIPLESHIP--We will strive to be models of men and women who love Jesus Christ and will trust God through our example to begin creating a thirst for God in each child.
Wednesday Nights - Elevate
We involve your child in worship by using Songs, Games, Bible skit, and a Bible lesson. Then your child moves to a small group to learn how to apply the lesson to his or her life. We believe in giving our kids God's truth in a way that grabs their attention and sticks with them for the rest of their life.
