Along with Metro Community Church’s vision, MetroKids! wants to become a ministry that brings life transformation through the community of children shaped by God, people, and the culture through the following:
Relevance - Showing children that Jesus is relevant in their lives and in the lives of others
Relationship - Building relationships with genuine love and acceptance to all, as Jesus demonstrates to embrace children and bless them (Mark 10:13-16)
Reflection - Reflecting on how to be like Jesus in all that we do in order to share his messages of love and compassion
Response - Raising children who will respond to the needs of other children and adults around them with anything and everything we have
Our goal is to be a fun and safe place for children to learn about Jesus Christ and his character to grow in his likeness in and for the community.
How To Enroll Your Child
1. First, you will need to register your child at the front desk on the first floor. You will receive a sticker name-tag and additional stickers with numbers that correspond to your child’s number (keep these with you because you will need them to pick up your child). This ensures that each child goes home with the right person each week.
2. Drop off your child at the Media Center (library) located down the hall on the left (look out for signs above), where he/she will be greeted by a MetroKids Volunteer. If it is your child’s first time and he/she is uncomfortable with being left alone, you are free to stay until your child and you feel at ease about leaving him/her.
3. At the end of service, parents are asked to pick up their child(ren) with their Parent tags from their classrooms, which are marked with signs by grade. Go home and continue to share in Jesus with your children all week!
