Kindergarten - 5th Grade
The Elementary Ministry is designed for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Through large group worship, small group study, and high energy midweek programming, we strive to teach children to Trust God, Choose Wisely, and Be Kind as they grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our partnership with parents through special worship experiences, volunteer opportunities, and abundant resources encourages full family participation and faith growth.
Our Mission Statement:
The mission of Mount Pisgah Children’s Ministry is to guide children to grow in unwavering faith in Jesus and a deeper love for God and people.
Special Needs programming is available at 9:30 and 11:00 am and during Collide on Wednesday nights. A self-contained classroom and inclusion model to provide additional support are available.
Lauren Ray, Special Needs Coordinator, facilitates our Sunday morning and Wednesday evening environments to allow every child the ability to participate in children’s programming at a level that meets their needs. She has a Masters in Special Education and spent 9 years teaching students with a wide range of disabilities. She also participates in international mission work that supports special education teachers and orphans with disabilities every year. She would love to meet you and discuss how to help your child thrive at Mount Pisgah. Email Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
