Connect With Children & Families
At Morningside Presbyterian, our Children’s Ministry team works to provide a space where every child and family feels safe, valued, loved and led. Everyone is cared for, valued as a unique child of God, affirmed as an important member of the community, and taught to depend on God, follow Jesus and be guided by the Holy Spirit.
We offer children and families engaging programming and childcare on Sunday mornings and during our many special events throughout the year. Below you will find resources for parents and news about special events on our calendar. Be sure to also find out more about our Sunday programs for children at MPC by clicking here.
One of the most impactful ways that children grow in faith is by observing how their own families express and live out their faith. We do our best to equip our families with relevant resources to walk with their children on their faith journey and to talk to each other about faith.

Staff and Volunteers
All adults who serve as leaders and caregivers for our MPC Kids have been trained by our staff and adhere to our church’s Child Protection Policy. This training allows us to properly equip and prepare individuals for their work with our children. Leaders and staff are thoroughly vetted, including the use of background checks, to ensure that we are offering a safe and loving environment at all times. If you have questions about our Child Protection Policy, email our Director of Children’s Ministry, Amanda Kemery.
