Program Information

The Kids and Youth Ministry Programs at MBC provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere designed to engage children and young people towards a real and active faith in God. Whether your children are singing songs, living out biblical stories, or simply playing a game of Octopus, they are surrounded by competent leaders who love Jesus, love them and love having fun.
