children

Metro Children's Ministry is pouring into this emerging generation from birth 'till Jr. High School! It's not just childcare. It's about making disciples of Jesus Christ in a modern-day, Spirit-filled environment that emphasizes spiritual growth and a relevant relationship with God. 

Kid's Church

Our kids are a very important part of our story!  After some kid-friendly worship, the kids engage in an object-lesson type teaching with the Children’s Ministry teachers/assistants.

At Metro, we are committed to pour into this emerging generation. “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in My name welcomes Me.”
-Mathew 18:5

Vision 
Make disciples of Jesus Christ in a contemporary, Spirit-filled environment that emphasizes spiritual growth and personal relationship with God.

Mission 
Create an environment in which children are given an opportunity to receive Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Kidz ministry is not babysitting, but ministry.

  • He said to them, “Go into the entire world and preach the good
    news to all creation.”- Mark 16:15 
  • “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For
    I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of My
    Father in Heaven. The Son of Man came to save what was lost.”
    - Matthew 18:10-11 

On Sundays:

WE BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

Metro Kidz Ministry team of volunteers encourages our children to pursue a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior. They teach the children that God finds them just as important as adults, and that God is there for them - just like He is for adults.

  • "Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but
    fellow-citizens with God's people and members of God's household,
    built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ
    Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone." - Ephesians 2:19-20 
  • "Show me Your ways, O LORD, teach me Your paths; guide me
    in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my
    hope is in You all day long." - Psalm 25:4-5

TEACH THE BASICS

Metro Kidz Ministry team of volunteers show children the aspects of Christianity. They take the time to build the foundation that will last a lifetime: worship, prayer, tithing, missions, and how to boldly share their faith; positively affecting their friends and relatives who do not know Jesus.

  • "Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you
    may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that
    the Lord is good." - 1 Peter 2:3
  • "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will
    not turn from it." - Proverbs 22:6

PROVIDE THE EXAMPLE

Metro Kidz Ministry team of volunteers allows the children to experience the family of God. For some children, we know it is the only proper example they will see. All Kidz Ministry team volunteers seriously understand the responsibly to God for these children! They are a ministry that leads by example.

  • "Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or
    seen in me - put it into practice. And the God of peace will be
    with you." - Philippians 4:9 
  • "But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me
    to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung
    around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea."
    -Matthew 18:6
