Mountain View Chapel has celebrated the presence of children since the formative days as a family Bible study meeting in the homes and garages of various families. Children are important, they matter, and showing love them love is important. The worship service has functioned with a family environment since the launch of the church. MVC was restricted by space but is now blessed to offer children's church during the middle of the Sunday morning service.
Lori Duggins is the director of the children's ministries for MVC.
She is a seasoned mother, youth leader, educator, coach, and saint (she has earned this status as the wife of the lead pastor).
More activities, events, and parent support opportunities are being developed and will be promoted on the upcoming events calendar.
Matthew 18:1-6 (NASB) At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
