“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”

— Proverbs 22:6

Our Children

At Metro, we desire to create a warm, safe environment, where our children experience the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the moment they walk through our doors. Since we believe this occurs at any age level, we strive to present the Gospel in an age-appropriate manner through worship songs, Scripture memory, activities, crafts, and Bible lessons pointing to Jesus as the ultimate “hero” of each story. We want to assist and support parents in the Christian nurture of their children by reinforcing the truths of the Gospel at church, as it is applied and lived out at home. Our team of teachers and assistants are active members of Metro, who possess a deep love for children and a joy of teaching. Many serve as professional educators throughout the city. As a team, we are committed to finding creative ways to bring the Gospel to life. As our children continue to build relationships with their teachers and one another, our hope is that each child will come to a saving knowledge of Jesus, and grow to embrace the values of Metro.

Our Children’s Sunday School Program includes:

  • Age-appropriate worship and “liturgical” flow
  • Scriptural lesson and Gospel-centered counsel
  • Take-home “bulletin” for parents to reinforce with their children
  • Background checks, disclosures, and training for all volunteer staff
  • At least one “conference” with parents and/or guardians

Interested in participating on our team?

We seek to provide the best care for our children through a solid team of volunteers for both our nursery and children’s ministry. The number of children in our church continues to grow, and this ministry is a great place to share your gifts and influence the next generation! Whether you come with training, or receive training as you serve with us, your investment in the lives of our children and fellow volunteers is a wonderful way to experience deeper community in a similar context. Opportunities to serve include teaching, assisting, and worship leading. If you have a heart for families and children, please consider serving!
