Children's Ministries

During baptism, the MAPC community joins parents in making the pledge to raise our children in the knowledge and love of God. We encourage and enable our young people to participate fully in the life of our church, as well as support parents as they nurture their children physically, socially, and spiritually.

What happens on Sundays?

Children’s Worship

Kindergarten through 3rd Grade, during both Sunday morning worship services year-round

This interactive worship lesson is designed to teach children about worship and prepare children to participate more fully in the main service when they are older. Includes a separate Preschool Worship during the 9 am service.

Church School

Sundays at 10:10 am

At Church School we learn about God’s love for us and the world through music, Bible study, games and crafts. This fun and engaging, member-led program helps students of all ages deepen their faith in God while meeting new friends and mentors.
