Children’s Ministry

Here at Mount Vernon, children participate in every aspect of our church community. Through Christian education, service projects, outreach opportunities, and fellowship, children learn to love God and love others as God loves them. By working together with their family, we strive to encourage children to:

  • Grow in faith
  • Know they are loved as children of God and important to this congregation
  • Identify their own gifts as we grow in relationship with each other and with God

10:00 – Sunday for Kids

NurseryBirth to Age 4 – Our infant, toddler classes hear Bible stories, sing and play.  We strive to provide two childcare workers in each room.  Our youngest children receive loving care in the nursery and toddler rooms in the lower level of the North wing of the sanctuary building.

Elementary Education – Preschool to Grade 5 – These lessons are designed to enrich your child’s faith as each session builds upon what we experience in worship. Each Sunday children explore the weekly Bible story through interactive activities.  Children also participate in service opportunities encouraging them to reach out to others in their community.

Vacation Bible School

Every Summer MVPC opens its doors and hosts Vacation Bible School for children Pre-K to 5th grade. It is always a wonderful 4 days of fun with Bible stories, games, projects and snacks.

Mount Vernon Presbyterian Church | We are a Presbyterian Church in the Atlanta area filled with love and energy an inclusive congregation committed to spiritual growth through worship, study, fellowship, & service.

 

Youth Ministry

The MVPC Youth program is designed to give all 6th-12th grade students a chance to explore, deepen, and express their faith. Friends are always welcome as we figure out together what it means to follow God in today’s world through Sunday morning age-appropriate Bible study. Confirmation Class is offered for those who wish to know more about membership in the Presbyterian Church and what exactly that means.

Adult Ministry

This Sunday is what we call the 10:00 am educational/experiential component of our Sunday mornings.  Each week we have one scripture passage and a theme that guides our activities in worship and study.  At 10:00 am, Bible Studies are offered for every age group following the curriculum, Feasting on the Word.  Adults also have one or two other course options for the day that might be informal discussion; a guest speaker; or something more active, like walking a meditation labyrinth or participating in a service project.  Each day stands on its own with its particular theme, so even if you missed being here last Sunday, you will not be behind This Sunday.

Stephen Ministry

Your Stephen Ministry Team finishes training on June 9!  They will be commissioned for service on Sunday, July 7.  Please join us in celebrating the addition to Congregational Care of these caring, skilled laypeople to meet with and walk with us through our darkest times.  
 
All self and other referrals to the ministry will go through our pastoral staff.  The Stephen Leader will be alerted and will meet with you in order to tell you about the program and what to expect.   She will match you with a Stephen Minister who will be assigned to meet with you weekly on a totally one to one, confidential basis until your difficulty lightens. 
 
Your Stephen Ministers feel very strongly that God led them to this ministry. They are grateful to God for strengthening  their faith during this spiritual training and they feel they have learned new caring  tools to use to help others through their lowest periods.
