6 weeks - grade 5

Morning Star Kids is a fun and safe place for children to learn about how much God loves them. We have activities and lessons to get their minds, hearts, and hands into the action so they can live for Jesus first in all they do. It’s so much fun, you as parents may want to join them!

SUNDAY MORNING CLASSES: In age-divided classes ranging from 6 weeks to 5th grade, we provide an engaging, fun, and biblically-based time for kids to be kids and learn about Jesus!


OUR COMMITMENT TO SAFETY: We are committed to the safety and security of your child! All of our volunteers and staff who work with children undergo a thorough background check before serving. We also use a secure check-in system to make sure that kids are checked in and out by the correct adult, and we require all children to be escorted to their classrooms and picked up after the service by an adult who has the claim tag. No child is released without a valid security claim tag.

Save some time during your first visit by pre-registering your child for check-in before coming!

Our goal in Student Ministries is to see Jesus change the hearts of middle and high school students. We want to see them choose to love Jesus and love others for the rest of their lives. All our weekly gatherings feel a little different, but they all have the same purpose of creating a space to discover who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him.

MIDDLE SCHOOL: Thursdays 7-9 pm (Highlife) // Sundays 11 am (MStar Middle School)
