Where Your Child Belongs

MercyGate Kids is a place where children from all walks of life are accepted and loved. We teach them how to Discover God, Make Friends, and Find Purpose. We are a ministry for the kids and for the family. At MercyGate Church, your kids are a big deal! While you’re in service, rest assured that your kids are receiving top-notch, age-appropriate care with a splash of mind-blowing experiences, rooted in the truth of God’s radical grace. Now that’s something worth getting excited about!

We strive to have a safe environment for your children. At every MGK event, you will find a check-in station with serve team members to help. Registration includes issuing a unique code with a sticker to pick up children when service is over. For security purposes, doors to the MGK areas remain locked during service. When service concludes, bring your unique ID sticker to pick up your children.

During each service, the nursery provides an opportunity for our youngest leaders to hear a Bible story, sing songs about God’s love, and play with toys and new friends. It is a great atmosphere for infants and toddlers. The nursery staff are trained caregivers with updated background checks, who enjoy caring for your children.

Wednesdays at 7:00pm is a time of discipleship for elementary kids.
