Children's Ministry

We are so glad that you are interested in learning more about Children’s Ministry at Morningside Presbyterian Church. We are a vibrant and energetic congregation filled with children. Children make up nearly one third of our congregation! MPC strives to provide a ministry for children that supports them in fostering a faith that grows as they do. Our hope is that children will develop Christian beliefs and behaviors that will be lifelong. We are committed to helping the entire family walk in their faith journey together. We look forward to welcoming your family to Morningside Presbyterian Church!


The Values of our Children’s Ministry

In all that we do, we want to…

Nurture – the faith of our children through a defined spiritual path

Inspire – our children to help and to serve others

Connect – our families socially and spiritually through family gatherings and activities

Educate – our children using creative and engaging Sunday School curriculum


The Vision of our Children’s Ministry

Therefore, we strive to provide a Children’s Ministry where everyone…

Feels safe. Everyone is cared for while in our midst. We value our children, staff and volunteers and we use our Child Protection Policy and volunteer trainings to protect all.

Feels valued. Everyone is a unique child of God. This means we all have opinions and no one will ever be looked down upon for those opinions. All are to be treated fairly.

Feels loved. Everyone is important, so no one will be put down, ignored or have their feelings intentionally hurt.

Feels led. Everyone is taught to depend on God, follow Jesus Christ and to be led by the Holy Spirit, while learning Biblical truths.


Children are encouraged to be involved in all areas of church-life at MPC. Follow these links for more information about Sundays for Families, ProgramsChildren’s Choir, Family Fellowship, and Morningside Presbyterian Preschool.
