Our goal is to partner with parents to help kids learn and grow in a fun and safe environment.
At Mill City Church we love ministering to your kids! We take seriously the time we have with them each week. Our passion is to partner with your family to “bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4).”
We group Mill City Kids classes in the following ways:
We take great care to prepare our nursery to be a clean and safe environment for your baby with age appropriate toys. As babies are played with, cared for, and held, we worship with them and pray blessing over their lives.
We engage with your child through worship songs, a simple study of a Bible character, and memorizing a short phrase from the Scripture. The walkers are playfully active during our time together as they learn about Jesus.
Twos & Threes
We communicate truths about God in a thoughtful and fun learning environment. The material comes alive through worship, personal interaction, engaging videos, and stimulating questions.
Preschool & Kindergarten
We encourage preschoolers and kindergarteners to know and love Jesus by understanding the big story of God. Using The Jesus Storybook Bible curriculum, we teach that Jesus is the center of God’s creation and salvation story through songs, crafts, and interactive lessons.
We help students become wholehearted follower of Jesus by showing that God is writing a timeless redemption story into which they are being invited. Each week Bible stories come alive through worship, interactive teaching, and small group settings.
*6th graders and up are invited to worship with their families in the main gathering and encouraged to participate in Mill City Students, our weekly youth group.
Children with Special Needs
We care about the spiritual growth of all children, so we are intentional to integrate children with special needs whenever possible. When a child needs more one-on-one attention, we pair them with a “Buddy” so they can be included in all that happens in a classroom. If needed, we will work with families to put together a personalized Individual Plan (IP) to help maximize the child’s time and learning. We offer specialized training for Mill City Kids team members to become a Mill City Kids Buddy. The training provides education on interventions and methods of instruction that can benefit children with special needs and is taught by a veteran certified special education teacher.
Drop-off and Pick-up: We utilize an electronic check-in system to expedite drop-off on a weekly basis and to ensure each child’s safety. At your initial check-in, you will be asked for basic information and any known food allergies or medical conditions. To check your child in each week you will be asked for your last name after which you and your child will receive matching alphanumeric tags. If you are needed during a gathering the three digit number on your tag will appear on the video screen in the auditorium indicating that you return to the Mill City Kid’s area. Children can only be picked up with a matching parent tag.
*All of our classrooms are fully staffed with adults who are committed to teaching and ministering to children. Each team member has been trained and completed a thorough background check.
