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

In-Person TRU Kids
Throughout this year, we will offer our programming for children from birth through grade 5 during the 9:00 AM service only. Children are welcome to worship as a family during the 11:15 AM service. Spots are limited in each room and you must register ahead of time. Use the links below to sign up.

There will be NO in-person TRU Kids on 11/22 or 11/29. Please email Jessica for the links to our virtual classes.

Our programs are held each week on Sunday mornings during the 9:00 a.m. Worship Service. Children’s Ministries utilizes the TRU curriculum by David C. Cook, helping children develop a TRU 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
TRU Kids is a time of Christ-centered, child-targeted learning for kids of all ages from birth through grade 5. Our time begins with large group Bible teaching time (The Big God Story), followed by various connecting activities. Learn more about our TRU Kids classes below. If you're not on our TRU Kids email list, sign up here!

Our nurseries are available on Sunday mornings to provide safe, loving, fun, and comfortable environments 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:

  • Infant Nursery (crawlers, birth to approximately 12 months) in the main nursery by the sanctuary.
  • Toddler Nursery (walkers, 12-24 months), located in the Coral Reef, in the Children's Ministries 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. 

TRU Blessings: 2 & 3 Year-Olds
Our 2 & 3 Year-Old class is held in the Woodlands in the Children's Ministries wing. Through sensory interaction, storytelling, joyful worship, and quarterly celebrations, your young one will learn the fundamental truth that God made them, loves them, and is with them.

TRU Wonder: 4 & 5 Year-Olds/Kindergarten
Our 4 & 5 Year-Old/Kindergarten classes are held in the Savanna in the Children's Ministries wing. Through exciting exploration, interactive storytelling, purposeful response time, and connecting through games and crafts, your child will experience the wonder of who God is!
TRU Story: 1st - 5th Graders
Our 1st & 2nd Grade class is held in the Mountains, and our 3rd - 5th Grade class is held in the Rec Room, both located in the Children's Ministries Wing. Engaging worship, impactful teaching, and interactive response activities make TRU Story a place where your kids learn about God's redemptive plan revealed through The Big God Story.
