Children's Ministries

Children’s Ministries strives to make your child’s time at Memorial Park Church the singular best hour of the week. Our mission is to come alongside parents as the primary spiritual influencers of their children, inviting them into life-changing and ever-growing relationships with Jesus Christ.

Using the Tru Kids curriculum, we provide a fun, safe environment for your child each week through: 

  • Upbeat music
  • Exciting stories
  • Community prayer
  • Engaging, age-appropriate activities

Our Programs

Children’s Ministries utilizes the Tru curriculum by David C. Cook, helping children develop a TRU (Transformational, Relational, and Unstoppable) relationship with Jesus Christ: 

  • Transformational: Our outstanding team of volunteers creatively and relevantly communicates The Big God Story in a caring, safe, and fun atmosphere each week
  • Relational: We seek to build friendships among the kids, leaders, and parents through outreach opportunities and activities throughout the year
  • Unstoppable: Kids are not too young to make a difference! We provide opportunities for kids to lovingly serve their neighbors near and far

Nursery: Newborn to 24 Months

The nursery is available to provide a safe, loving, fun, and comfortable environment for both you and your child. 

Our staff will walk, rock, read, feed, and play with the little ones to ensure that they are content while you worship.  The nursery is made up of two main rooms:

  • Infants and Crawlers (birth to approximately 12 months) in the main nursery
  • Walkers (12-24 months), located in the preschool wing of the church. 

A comfort room is also available for parents wanting to worship with their little ones, or for nursing mothers. The comfort room is adjacent to the infant nursery.
