Our children’s ministry at Missio Dei Church is a place where young ones and students can learn more about God, the Bible, and what the Bible teaches on how to treat one another. We are thankful to provide a safe, fun, and dynamic place for kids from babies up to 5th graders to learn and grow. All of our MD|kids volunteers have completed a background check and we have video monitoring of each room and either 2 volunteers or one with an open door. Your child’s safety and growth are our highest priorities!

We are excited to introduce a new children’s curriculum to our MD|kids program this year called D6 Family.
From their website, “D6 connects the church to home and families to one another. D6 curriculum is one of the most effective small group and Sunday School curriculums you can find. D6 is based on the principles of Deuteronomy 6:5-9 - love God, love His Word, and teach your children to do the same.”
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. (Deuteronomy 6:5-7 CSB)
We believe that parents and homes should be the primary source of discipleship for children, therefore one of our primary responsibilities as a church family is to equip parents and homes with gospel-centered lessons and resources.
W H A T T O E X P E C T
On a normal Sunday morning, children worship with the entire church family at the beginning of service, and are then dismissed to their separate rooms for engaging in age appropriate activities, crafts, and lessons.
After the services have ended, your child will be sent home with talking points from the lesson, songs to sing as a family, age-appropriate Scripture verses to memorize, and fun activities that reinforce that week's lesson. You'll be able to take home and cherish the crafts they've made as well!
In addition to all these resources, you'll be able to sign up for Splink!, a weekly email from D6 Family that dives even deeper into the lesson and provides additional talking points and adventures for you to go on as a family. All this serves and reinforces our position of equipping parents with the resources you need "train up [your] child in the way he should go," (Proverbs 22:6 ESV). You can sign up for Splink! below.

We feel privileged to care for your children each week and are thrilled to walk alongside of each other to help raise Christ-minded children for His Glory.
