Our Vision


The purpose of The MET Kids Ministry is to help children initiate and develop a relationship with Jesus Christ, to draw families to the heart of God and to grow a team of children’s ministers who are passionate and equipped to reach the next generation with the gospel of Jesus Christ. By creating environments that allow life-changing ministry to happen, the MET Kids Ministry seeks to give each child an opportunity to experience God in such a way that will inspire them to become totally committed followers of Jesus Christ.

The MET Kids service times are identical to adult service times

Our Programs


The MET Kids preschool classrooms are safe and loving environments for our youngest children. Our teachers are committed to teaching them about God’s love through age-appropriate activities and lessons. Parents and kids are invited to visit our preschool environment and experience our commitment to working with every family in laying a biblical foundation that preschoolers can build their lives on.

STRATEGY

Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths, constructed to meet your preschoolers where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially.  Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to The Blast they know these three basic truths.

God Made Me

God Loves Me

Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever

We start with curriculum for Babies, providing a simple song to sing while changing a diaper. Toddler curriculum provides monthly activities for purposeful play. The real excitement starts when we reach the two-year-old and threes-through-fives and begin our Large Group/Small Group curriculum.

LARGE GROUP

Our large group experience encourages all the children to gather together to worship and hear the Bible story in a fun and engaging way.

SMALL GROUP

The small group experience includes some activities to make it fun, while others are geared towards review and reinforcement. This enables us to reach every learning style.

Grades 1st – 3rd (Jones Campus)
Grades 1st – 4th (Cypress Campus)

The Blast is an amazing launching pad for kids. Your child will take off in their spiritual growth through explosive worship, uplifting biblical teaching, and an out-of-this-world connection to other kids and caring adults through small groups. Simply put, kids don’t want to miss a moment of The Blast!

STRATEGY

The Blast is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. Everything we teach is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.

I need to make the wise choice.

I can trust God no matter what.

I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

MESSAGE

The story of God reveals the character of God. That’s why our Sunday Large Group experience is organized around key Bible stories that help kids discover Jesus and reflect His character to the world around them. Every month presents a new Life App to help children discover more about God’s character. And each Life App is unpacked through a weekly Bottom Line-a short phrase so easy to remember that it can be reinforced at home throughout the week.  Both can be found on our Parent Resource Page.

COMMUNITY

The Blast continues to build on a child’s experience of community by creating opportunities for life-change through Small Groups. Every Small Group resource is designed to support a safe environment with consistent leaders who will engage children to trust God’s character and live out God’s story.

Grades 4 and 5 (Jones Campus)
Grades 5 and 6 (Cypress Campus)

In The Zone, kids learn what it means to be right where God created them to be: growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Through on-target teaching, engaging worship and small group connections, kids will be surrounded by the life-changing truth of God’s Word. It’s time to get in The Zone!
