During baptism, the MAPC community joins parents in making the pledge to raise our children in the knowledge and love of God. We encourage and enable our young people to participate fully in the life of our church, as well as support parents as they nurture their children physically, socially, and spiritually.
To register, including for Kids Club, here’s the information and registration form.
What happens on Sundays?
Kindergarten through 3rd Grade, during both Sunday morning worship services year-round
This interactive worship lesson is designed to teach children about worship and prepare children to participate more fully in the main service when they are older. Includes a separate Preschool Worship during the 9 am service.
Sundays at 10:10 am
At Church School we learn about God’s love for us and the world through music, Bible study, games and crafts. This fun and engaging, member-led program helps students of all ages deepen their faith in God while meeting new friends and mentors.
Looking for an afterschool ministry?
Wednesdays at 4 pm to 6 pm
This after-school program is designated for grade school children from Kindergarten through fifth grade to form valuable relationships with friends and mentors that centered on God’s Word.
Through the course of the afternoon, children will have the opportunity to: enjoy a nutritious snack, engage in bible study, make a joyful noise in choir, participate in recreation, and share a meal with other church families. Kids Club this year will take place on Wednesday afternoons from 3:45-6:00pm beginning on September 13, 2017. Join us this fall as we seek to love God, love others, and learn together.
Wednesdays at 4:20 pm, you can come at 4 pm for free play
An abbreviated version of Kids Club, with Bible stories, art, music, movement, and games.
Have an Infant, Toddler, or Preschooler?
The sacrament of Baptism is the moment of initiation into Christian life. If you would like your child to be baptized, please contact the Rev. Beverly Bartlett at or another pastor on staff. They will discuss with you the meaning of baptism and help make arrangements with you.
Sunday Morning Nurseries
Sundays 9:30 am to 12:15 pm
Church House, 4th Floor
Our professionally staffed nursery enables parents to participate fully in morning worship services and adult Christian education. Parents are provided with a special beeper so that they may be summoned to the Nursery in the event of an emergency.
MAPC Children’s Library
Open Sundays, 9 am to 1 pm, or by appointment
Located behind the receptionist’s office in the Church House, this library also serves as a playroom for children during worship services. Parents may listen to the worship service as children read. In addition to storybooks, you will find books on parenting, Christian parenting, children’s Bibles and more.
