Children

 
Welcome parents and children! The Mountain View Children's Ministry seeks to help our children experience and explore God's love. We offer regular Sunday morning classes, Vacation Bible Study, and special events such as our Advent Workshop or Trunk-or-Treat. Of course things look a little different during the pandemic. Currently we have a fantastic online ministry. We offer a safe and fun way to develop relationships and to learn about the love of Jesus. 
 
As we get back to in-person worship on December 6, 2020, we are excited to announce the kick-off of KidZone, an awesome gathering for kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade (eventually we will offer grade-specific classes). The kids will start off in the Sanctuary with the adults, and then Dr. Joe will have a Children's Moment (entitled "What's-in-the-Box?). Afterwards, they will be dismissed to KidZone (or they can stay in the Sanctuary).  
                              

Below are weekly online lessons for our awesome Mountain View kids! Most lessons consist of a video and a worksheet.
