Children & Students

Mission Point WONDERVILLEParents, we are committed to your comfort with the care your little ones receive so you can freely participate in the worship services, serving and Connection Groups! Our early childhood ministry is called WONDERVILLE, a place where kids discover and are amazed by Jesus!

We have five classes for our young children:
– birth to 11 months
Toddlers – 11 (or walkers) to 23 months
2’s Class – 24 to 35 months
3’s Class – 36 to 47 months
Pre-K Class – 4 and 5 year olds

Nursing Moms’ Room: A nursing moms’ room is located in the first room on the right in the Wonderville hallway. It houses a changing table so moms can attend to their children during Sunday mornings. The nursing moms’ room is available to be used at anytime by mothers of newborns who bring their child into the service with them. A mother may also choose to have her baby in the nursery and simply come get the child when he or she needs fed. At check in, parents can note the timing of when a child needs to lie down for a nap, be given a bottle or any other specific schedule need. The nursing moms’ room has sermon video available so mothers do not miss the service while they are out of the auditorium.

Class Transition Times: Children are transitioned at the beginning of each month to their next age range.

Mission Point KidzPointOur K-4th grade ministry is called KidzPoint. Classes are designed to enable children to attend either the 9am or the 10:45am service, or for children to participate in BOTH services when parents are serving on Sunday mornings or participating themselves in Connection Groups. Our 4th graders have already “graduated” to our 5th & 6th grade program. KidzPoint is for recent K-3rd graders until Promotion Sunday on August 19th. 

9am – During the 9am service we offer a joint class for K-4th graders. The 9am class time will include a video lesson and application activities.

10:45am – During the 10:45am service, our K-4th graders will participate in live worship, hear a group lesson and then break up into grade level and gender specific small groups.

 Mission Point 5.6 Solid5.6 (Five Point Six) is our 5th and 6th grade ministry and is offered during the 10:45am service.  Most Sundays, 5th and 6th graders join parents for the welcome and singing portion of the service and will be dismissed after the worship portion to join their leaders.

The 5.6 students gather to discuss what God is teaching them, how they are reaching out to their peers and how they are growing to know Jesus personally. Time is designated for prayer requests, sharing how God is answering prayers, and spending time praying together. The group also plays games and has fun being together!

July Break – The 5.6 class is taking a break during the month of July. We’re excited for them to join us for the entire service through July 29th! Students are encouraged to take a week this month to serve in Wonderville. Email to sign up.

Our Student Ministries is for students in 7th – 12th Grade. The purpose of Student Ministries is that of Mission Point Community Church: to lead these students into the pursuit of a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. The program is designed to grow these youth believers by intentionally connecting them in purposeful community and deeper relationship with one another and by encouraging them to reach non-believers by practicing an intentional life by sharing God’s love in word and action.

Here are ways your student can be involved this summer:

  • Student Section: Our students sit together during the 10:45am worship service in the front left side of the auditorium’s floor seating. Students and leaders gather for the “5 After” at the conclusion of the service to briefly discuss the message and receive information about upcoming events.
  • Summer Block Party (at Cafe Mod near Carson’s): Students are invited to Cafe Mod (Wire & Steam) on Sunday evenings for food, games and discussion. Check out the dates below for more specifics!
