At Mercy Road Church our goal is to partner with parents to help every child feel KNOWN, LOVED and SECURE. We believe having a loving relationship with Jesus makes that possible! So whether you already know Jesus or you are skeptical of church and faith, we would love to have the opportunity to encourage you! No strings attached!
PRESCHOOL | JUNE WEEK 2
Story Focus: We can trust God’s plan. Then, we will hear the story of a guy named Joshua and his battle against Jericho. Joshua had a choice to make, and it all came down to whether or not he trusted God and His plan. God’s plan for Joshua worked, and we want our preschoolers to know that they can Press Play and trust God’s plan for them too.
ELEMENTARY | JUNE WEEK 2
In week two, we head to Joshua 5:13-6:20. God recently chose Joshua as the next leader of the Israelites. Joshua’s first task was a doozy. He was leading God’s people into the promise land, including taking the giant city of Jericho. God’s plan might have seemed a bit crazy, but Joshua had confidence that God’s plan would work. He led the people, and God came through for them.
Bottom Line: God’s plan is the best plan. The writers of the Bible remind us over and over that the plans we make are nothing compared to the plans God has for our life. We pray that kids will start to discover how much God loves them and wants what’s best for them. When we follow God’s plan, we can have confidence that it’s the best plan.
We always welcome drop-ins on a Sunday, just head to the Mercy Kids check-in desk. If you wish to register your child with us, you will get a personalized security sticker each time they attend Mercy Kids. Registration forms are available at the check-in desk or click the link above.
First Visit for your child?
We welcome kids to visit and participate in our nursery, preschool and elementary classes! When you arrive on Sunday, please bring your child to the Kids Ministry check-in desk. There you will be warmly greeted and given security stickers, one for your child and one for you to keep. Depending on the age of your children, they’ll either go directly into the nursery/toddler room or head with you to get settled in the Worship Center. Kids will be dismissed to their classes, accompanied by their leaders, during the service.
At Mercy Road Kids, we understand that parents have the most influence on a child, and by partnering with you, we can make a greater impact. We have a family resource wall filled with books and resources covering a wide range of topics. We also offer parenting small group workshops and events throughout the year.
At Mercy Road we believe that every child is made in the image of God and has the potential to do remarkable things. We have partnered with Orange and Parent Cue. We use the First Look and 252 Kids Curriculum. The Orange curriculum combines child development and theology to create a comprehensive children’s ministry strategy. We agree that when we at Mercy Road, partner with parents and caregivers, there is a greater impact. We will equip you with tools like tangible cues to use at strategic times throughout the week to reinforce what was talked about on Sundays. We are committed to helping you do more for your child’s faith by providing resources, guidance, love and community.
FIRST LOOK ROOM (Infants through age 3)
Our nursery provides a safe, loving environment for your littlest ones. We weave creative activities, music, video presentations and small group discussions to reinforce one clear and simple bottom line each week so kids can walk or crawl way and remember what matters most.
WONDER ROOM (Preschool and Kindergarten)
Our preschool leaders want your kids to grow up making wiser choices, building stronger relationships and developing a deeper faith. We use three relational motives in our preschool room… Wonder, Discovery and Passion. Each Sunday, lessons are filled with intentional fun and connection to God’s truth. At Mercy Road Church we believe that prayer is a gift from God to help us have a relationship with Him and we start teaching about prayer in our preschool room. We pray weekly with and for our students.
DISCOVERY ROOM (Elementary 1st-2nd and 3rd-5th grade)
At Mercy Road we want every elementary student to trust in Jesus in a way that transforms how they love God, themselves, and the world around them. This is accomplished through relational ministry. We share the teachings of Jesus in a way that students can understand and apply to their current life situations. We provide small group settings with consistent, caring leaders that know and love your child.
Mercy Road Youth
At Mercy Road church we want to provide a safe space and opportunities for our young people in 6th-12th grade to grow in their relationship with Jesus. We all know that being a teenager in today’s society can be challenging. Our kids today face issues and pressures that simply did not exist when we were growing up. We want to be here to provide a positive, Christ-centered group to help support them in their walk with Jesus. Our goal is to clearly communicate to our teens that they are loveable, capable, and worthwhile, they are loved without strings, and that they are not alone. At Mercy Road Church we believe in the power of the Gospel to both save, and transform lives (Titus 2:11-14)
