The mission of MD Kids is to partner with parents to show and tell the good news of Jesus to our kids. What we are doing on Sunday mornings is not babysitting. It’s ministry. Our aim is to shepherd the hearts and minds of the children of Missio Dei Wrigleyville by intentionally stewarding the time we have with them.
How do we do that?
With the Gospel – the good news of Jesus. Our Kid Kingdom teachers share the Word of God in relevant, age-appropriate, and fun ways. We use The Gospel Project curriculum and leverage the tools and resources provided, to enhance the learning experience for the children so that the Bible is more than just a book of stories, but a living testament to the God who made them, loves them, and longs to be in relationship with them.
Simultaneously, we aim to equip our parents to thrive in their role as the spiritual leaders of their children by providing take-home resources, practical tools, and encouragement on a regular basis. Our hope and prayer is that we begin to see families being transformed and living on mission together as disciples of Jesus.
We believe this is a critical part of how we begin to see a city that is being transformed by the Gospel. This is how we join God as He makes all things new.
