Morning Star’s children’s ministry exists to assist parents in leading their children to follow Jesus.

We take seriously the responsibility to provide a safe and loving environment in which children can learn the Bible and take steps forward in their relationship with Jesus. Each lesson and activity strives to help children know Jesus, understand His Word, take the next step in their relationship with Christ, and equip them to share Jesus’ love with others.

We have a bi-weekly children's program to help our children learn the core doctrines of our faith. We support our parents as they raise their children to be rooted deep in truths of scripture.

In order to help each child might reach his or her spiritual potential, we take extensive steps to ensure that they feel and remain safe while in our care. Each volunteer is a church member who has been prepared and vetted to work with your child by means of:

  • An extensive application and interview process

  • A criminal background check

  • A minimum of two references

  • Mandatory sexual abuse awareness training

Nursery

We seek to provide a safe, Christian atmosphere for the youngest members of our church family. We hope that our loving care for your child will allow you to participate in the multitude of opportunities available here at Morning Star.

We believe that children are a gift. Nursery Ministries provides special care to infants and toddlers that contributes to their well being and complements and strengthens the Christian nurture the child experiences at home.
