Explore the ministry opportunities for your children at Mt Rainier Christian Center
Our MRCC Kids (birth through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
It is our joy to partner with families with children to assist and share in the amazing journey of bringing children into a personal relationship with Jesus. This is such an exciting age to equip and disciple kids. We desire for every child to hear God’s word and begin at a young age to discover that there is no greater joy than following Jesus. We want to challenge the kids to grow in Christ in an environment that is fun, exciting, and secure. Each week our dedicated, background-checked kids church team provides age-appropriate, dynamic, and interactive lessons and truths through music, video, interactive games, Bible stories, and prayer. Come grow with us!
Here's what to expect when visiting MRCC Kids for the first time:
First, find the area marked "Welcome Center". There, our volunteers will direct you to our "Kids Welcome Center" and introduce you to our Children's Pastor, Allison, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags/codes that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the sanctuary immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
(Babies 6 Weeks - Walking)
In our Infant Room, we have created a space that is peaceful and comfortable. Our infant team will lovingly care for the littlest among us and work to ensure every parent can feel comfortable dropping their small one off to take a nap or just enjoy the other babies. We do broadcast our service into this room so that our nursing moms (or those that can’t imagine being away 🙂) don’t have to miss the teaching.
(Walking - 3 Years and Potty Trained)
These little ones are cared for in a safe and loving environment, playing and interacting with other children while mom and dad are able to freely enjoy worship and the teaching in our main service. Our Toddler team loves being with children, creating a friendly atmosphere that makes coming to church a happy and fun time.
(3 Years and Potty Trained - Kindergarten)
Preschoolers are welcomed into this classroom and then invited to participate in our First Look curriculum that includes a variety of games, activities, arts and crafts, snacks, sensory play, and toys all while learning more about God. Every month we focus on one of these 3 basic truths incorporated in Bible stories: God made me-God loves me-Jesus wants to be my friend forever. There is always laughter and fun in this classroom!
(Kindergarten - 5th Grade)
The older children can participate each week in their own church service we call “Kids' Church”. They will experience a time of worship, relevant and engaging lessons, a monthly memory verse, and a time of prayer. There is never a lack of energy, fun, and growing in Kids Church!
Summer Camp - Each year we go to a camp designed to get us away from our daily routine and get us closer to Jesus in a fun-packed week of high-energy services and activities. The camp runs Monday thru Friday, typically during the 4th full week of July. Check the church calendar or home page website for details. Registration and dates will be available on-line in May each year.
Elevate - A two-day Spring retreat in the first weekend of May to a camp close to home so parents can volunteer to participate in the events and activities of the weekend. Elevate is a time for kids to encounter Jesus through games, activities, worship and teaching.
Nitro 2.0 - This is a two-day kids’ conference event that takes place in March each year. We take the kids on a Friday after school and they are home by dinner on Saturday. The event encompasses high-energy worship, teaching, games, and activities. Keep an eye on the calendar and website for details.
Throughout the year, we will have other activities for our kids and families. Watch the web and bulletin for details and information.
Impact is a ministry designed for 4th and 5th grade students. We meet almost every Wednesday during the school year from 6:30-8pm in the MRCC office annex for a fun evening of games, time with friends, worship, small groups, and space to encounter Jesus. Feel free to stop by and check it out!
Meets on the third Sunday of each month from 9:30-10:45 am in the office annex (Impact Room).
Students share breakfast together and learn important truths from God’s Word!
