One thing we know to be true from Scripture is that kids ministry is an incredibly strategic mission field. Every week we have the opportunity to share the gospel with little hearts who have never heard it before. We are excited about the responsibility to make disciples of these kids as they grow up. This is why we want to equip you with training and resources to make an impact on the kids you interact with every week. On this page, we have information about leadership in MH kids, trainings to help you grow in your area, a list of upcoming events, our weekly lesson plans, and information about contacting the kids staff. Our desire is that this page will be your hub for all things MH Kids Team, and we will continue to update it with lessons, events, and content. As always, feel free to reach out to the kids staff if we can help you in any way.
