We Value Children, Just As Jesus Taught Us In Matthew 19:14.
We hope that your child has FUN when they visit us, and most importantly, that we can start them on a path to become Fully Devoted to Jesus. Our goals include providing a God-Centered, Intentional, and Safe environment for your child. We want to work with you as your child grows and develops so that they will have a deepening understanding of God and the Bible. Using lots of creativity and activities that connect with each age group, we want their understanding to be practical—applying to their lives and relationships right where they are today.
The MC3 Kids Ministry is blessed with an abundance of caring and gifted servants, who love to open the Word of God and teach children about Jesus. Everyone serving with our children has complied with a safety and security program, as well as a background check.
Contact MC3 Kids Ministry Coordinator Jim Barber at 404-268-6981 or by email if you have any questions. He would love to meet you and share more info about the Kids Ministry at MC3.

Sunday Mornings @ 10:30am
Nursery (Birth to 23 months)
Staff and volunteers gently rock babies and lead fun activities for toddlers. Our nursery is a fun place where babies and toddlers play and learn about Jesus. Children enjoy playing games, listening to Bible stories, singing songs and doing age-appropriate activities.
Wee Worship (4K- 5K children)
Wee Worship is an interactive worship gathering designed for 4- and 5-year-olds to experience the love of Jesus. Our time together includes music, dancing, crafts, drama, games, a snack and of course, an awesome Bible story! Our team promises to provide a safe and nurturing environment for your child to have fun and learn about God’s Word.
KidsTime (1st-5th grade students)
KidsTime is a large-group experience that engages elementary-age students in worship through relevant, age-appropriate, high-energy activities that include singing, drama presentation, prayer and Bible teaching time. Kids also have the opportunity to take communion as an act of worship and are reminded that communion is for those who have made a decision to follow Christ and have been baptized.
We encourage our parents to discuss this with their children and decide when it is time for them to start participating in communion. We also collect an offering during KidsTime. Our entire offering goes to support a child who resides at the Children’s Village at Christian City just south of Atlanta. (www.christiancity.org)
We have a strong team of adult leaders who host KidsTime each week, as well as a group of outstanding student leaders who assist and serve as mentors to the younger children.
Sunday Mornings @ 9:30am
Children’s (Connect) C-Groups (Age 3 – 5th grade)
Children’s Connect, or C-Groups, is a small group setting intended for the purpose of presenting a biblical lesson to children and giving them the opportunity to share with one another how that biblical theme applies to their lives. Our C-Group classes often incorporate crafts and activity worksheets that support the Bible teaching, and always allow for individual participation and Bible exploration.
Nursery is provided for infants 6 weeks through 23 months during our C-Group sessions.
Wednesday Night C-Groups
Wednesday nights are a relaxed, fun and encouraging environment for children to gather together mid-week and connect with one another. We encourage kids to dress casually, wear tennis shoes (we may play outside or in the gym) and invite their friends to come along with them. We begin the evening with a family dinner in the Fellowship Hall at 5:30 p.m. on the First Wednesday of each month and at 6 p.m. on all other Wednesdays.
Age 2 through 5k split their time between 30 minutes of Bible songs and movement, and 30 minutes of Bible story time and related activities.
Elementary-age children meet outside the Fellowship Hall at 6:30. Games in the gym or playground are followed by Bible time for 1st-3rd graders and 4th-5th graders.
Nursery is provided for infants 6 weeks through 23 months on Wednesday nights.
Our Children’s programming is led by our highly trained staff and volunteers, all of whom have passed background checks and have completed our volunteer application process. To join our volunteer team, complete the application form.
