Kids at Mendham Hills


We believe our role is to support and empower our families – your family – in the spiritual formation of our children. We want to partner with you to help your kids build strong relationships with other kids, adults, and of course, the God whose heart is tender toward them. We want to help them learn to talk to Him and to understand how their lives are part of His plan of redemption and reconciliation for the world.


Infants | Toddlers | PreK

EMBRACE. Babies want to know they are safe and loved. Toddlers are on a quest for independence. PreK kids are incredibly curious. Knowing that Jesus is their friend is our focus in this age group.

Kindergarten – 5th Grade

ENGAGE. This age group is becoming more capable and independent, and looks for attention and approval. We want them to experience God’s unconditional love and forgiveness.

Kids’ Club

EXPERIENCE. Friends, fun and faith. Two eight-week sessions for boys and girls, grades 1-5, on Tuesdays from 6:30-8pm. We want them to grow and understand who God is through activities and lessons.

What can I expect on a Sunday Morning?

 

Your infants and toddlers will be welcomed and electronically checked in by loving volunteers at the beginning of each service. Older children will join you in the sanctuary for worship. At dismissal, they will be escorted by our MHCC Kids staff to the children’s ministry area or you may accompany them to the second floor. During the summer they go directly to their classes at the beginning of the service.
With our little ones, the emphasis is on helping them to understand three simple truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. We use a combination of Bible stories, crafts, singing and play to communicate these ideas in a fun, safe environment.

 

With our young learners, we focus on three basic truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated. The children are together for large-group teaching – an interactive, engaging lesson that includes a skit – and then move to small groups to learn how to apply the truths to their lives.
