Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
Jesus loved children and so do we. We believe they have an important part in God’s plan right this very minute and are dedicated to partnering with parents and care givers to teach them God’s purpose through scripture, community and practice.
In our children’s ministry we encourage you to let your little ones join with other children to build a strong relationship with God and grow in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ. The time to start is now!
Bible classes are offered for children of all ages, infants through 6th grade on Sunday.
We have carefully designed Bible studies and experiences for every age. Our hands-on curriculum helps children discover, understand, and apply God's Word. Take a look below to find the desired age group to see what to expect while at Meadowbrook.
Sprouts - Babies - 3 years
Meadowbrook's Nursery (Sprouts) offers classes for newborns through three years on Sunday morning. Our goal is to partner with you to teach your child three basic truths.
1. God created you.
2. God loves you.
3. Jesus wants to be your friend forever.
Following Bible class on Sunday morning, Meadowbrook volunteers staff the nursery for newborns through three years so that parents have the option to participate in our worship gathering while their precious ones are enjoying lots of love and attention.
Sparks - Age 4 - 2nd Grade; CONNECTIONS Children's Worship - 4 years old - 2nd grade
At Meadowbrook, we know how important it is for kids to grow in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ. That's why our Sparks (4 - 2nd grade) and CONNECCTIONS age kids (4 years old - 2nd grade) are taught about God's purpose for their lives through scripture, community and practice. These kids will learn:
1. To make wise choices
2. To trust God, no matter what
3. To treat others the way they want to be treated
Classes are offered at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday morning for Sparks.
At 10:30 on Sundays, the CONNECITONS group begins in the auditorium, then transitions to the CONNECTIONS room together for an age appropriate worship time that teaches children about Jesus through Bible stories, songs, prayer, stations, and always lots of fun! All children ages 4 yrs - 2nd grade are invited to join us!
Parents may pick up Sprouts and Sparks after Bible classes and after CONNECTIONS Children's Worship.
We also offer Bible classes for children ages 0-6th grade Wednesday evenings from 6-7pm. These classes are offered 3 Wednesdays a month. One Wednesday a month the children participate in intergenerations spiritual development together with the teens and adults.
JAM kids (3rd - 6th grades) are a special group at Meadowbrook. In between being a "little kid" and being a full-on teenager, this group has a wonderful spirit and passion for serving God.
Through hands and feet service projects, fellowship and devotion times, and just having fun together, friendships are forged that help prepare kids for adolescence.
Classes are offered at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. JAM kids join in with the youth group and adults in our Sunday morning worship gathering.
