Children’s Ministries strives to make your child’s time at Memorial Park the singular best hour of the week. Our mission is to come alongside parents as the primary spiritual influencers of their children, helping them love people, know Jesus, and live transformed. Our programs are held each week on Sunday mornings during the 9:00 AM Worship Service and is a time of Christ-centered, child-targeted learning for kids of all ages from birth through grade 5. Additional programming is offered for children from birth to grade 5 during the 10:10 AM Discipleship Hour, and for children from birth to Kindergarten during the 11:15 AM Worship Service. We utilize the TRU curriculum by David C. Cook to develop a TRU relationship with Jesus Christ:

  • Transformational: Our outstanding team of volunteers creatively and relevantly communicates The Big God Story in a caring, safe, and fun atmosphere each week
  • Relational: We seek to build friendships among the kids, leaders, and parents through outreach opportunities and activities throughout the year
  • Unstoppable: Kids are not too young to make a difference! We provide opportunities for kids to lovingly serve their neighbors near and far

Using the TRU Kids curriculum, we provide a fun, safe environment for your child each week through upbeat music, exciting stories, community prayer, and engaging, age-appropriate activities. Our time begins with large group Bible teaching time (The Big God Story), followed by various connecting activities.

Nursery: Newborn-24 months
Our comfort room and nursery are available on Sunday mornings to provide safe, loving, fun, and comfortable environments for both you and your child. The Nursery is located to the right of the Sanctuary.

TRU Blessings: 2 & 3 Year-Olds
Our 2 & 3 Year-Old class is held in the Woodlands in the Children's Ministries wing. Through sensory interaction, storytelling, joyful worship, and quarterly celebrations, your young one will learn the fundamental truth that God made them, loves them, and is with them.

TRU Wonder: 4 & 5 Year-Olds/Kindergarten
Our 4 & 5 Year-Old/Kindergarten classes are held in the Savanna in the Children's Ministries wing. Through exciting exploration, interactive storytelling, purposeful response time, and connecting through games and crafts, your child will experience the wonder of who God is!

Our 1st & 2nd Grade class is held in the Mountains, and our 3rd - 5th Grade class is held in the Rec Room, both located in the Children's Ministries Wing.

Our Student IMPACT teen programs are designed to support students as they journey through life during the challenging years of middle and high school. We impact their lives with the message of the Gospel, help it to take root and grow so they can make an impact on the world around them. The mission of Student IMPACT is to walk beside and to support and partner with parents in their role as the primary spiritual nurturer in the life of their student. 

Students in grades 6-8 and 9-12 have a variety of opportunities to get involved in Student IMPACT. Our weekly Sunday morning classes (including Confirmation class for high school students), Sunday evening youth group gatherings, and Wednesday evening small group studies offer ways to build meaningful personal and spiritual relationships, as well as provide students with a platform to examine their faith, and make the decision to follow Jesus. We also offer retreats and mission trip opportunities that allow students to dive deeper into their faith.

Middle School & High School
Students meet on Sunday mornings at the 10:10 AM hour. This dedicated time is an opportunity for students to learn and grow in their faith through Bible teaching, discussion, and prayer support. Although this is a classroom format, there is no homework requirement and students can join the class at any time. The Middle School program is led by Marissa Kotanichek, our Middle School Coordinator. The High School class is led by Levi Cole, our High School Coordinator.

Confirmation Class
Our Confirmation Class is open to students in grades 9-12 who are interested in pursuing membership at Memorial Park Church. This class is led by our Director of Family Ministries, Ryan Pietryga. The Confirmation Class covers important topics such as Biblical history, the core beliefs of Christianity, and church membership. This class is held on Sunday mornings at the 10:10 AM hour, running concurrently with Middle and High School Sunday morning classes.

Memorial Park Church places a high value on spiritual growth. Our desire is to meet people where they are in their faith development and to engage them in an intentional discipleship ministry that is both inwardly strong and outwardly focused, moving them to greater maturity in their relationship with Christ. Our Sunday morning Adult Classes run during the 10:10 AM Discipleship Hour. These classes typically run in sessions of anywhere form 6 to 8 weeks. We have a variety of classes to choose from each session.

Pugliese Class
Instructor: Pete Pugliese
Room: Preschool Green Room

Effective Discipleship While Persevering in Faith…

This class is studying Paul's 1st Letter to Timothy. Come and join us as we learn from Paul's letter. The lessons we hope to glean from this study are that:
1. Shepherding is more practical than theoretical.
2. Church leadership is much less glamorous than it is demanding.
3. Ministry is the maintenance of balance between commitment and contentment.
As you consider these, think about where you are in your walk with Jesus. Are you true to the gospel of Jesus Christ? Are you wise based upon God’s wisdom, or are you confined by the ways of this world? Let’s examine the scriptures together.

The ReIEngage Marriage Ministry Staff will be taking a sabbatical for the 2024 season.  Stay tuned for other event or class offerings to be announced at a later date. 

Re|Engage is a 16-week marriage enrichment program that examines God's design for marriage and applies principles from the Bible to guide couples towards growth in their relationship with each other. Marriages in any condition can benefit, whether you are struggling to get along, your marriage is broken, or you simply want to grow closer together as a couple. This program generally begins in January.

There are two components to Re|Engage: large group and small group participation. Each evening begins in a large group setting, during which time you'll hear couples publicly share their marriage story, and class leaders teaching principles for marriage growth. This typically lasts anywhere from 30-45 minutes.

During the second portion of the class, couples move into small groups. Small group consists of 4-5 participating couples who will walk through the 16-lesson Re|Engage curriculum together. Closed Groups are formed when there are enough couples ready to join a Closed Group, and a facilitator couple is available. This group generally meets from 75-90 minutes.

Memorial Park's Marriage Ministry also organizes couples events to help couples reconnect, reignite, and resurrect their marriage.
