Welcome to God's Backyard

Children's Ministry.

Our vision is to see families and the church working together in God’s Backyard to plant seeds of faith in the next generation, to help kids grow into fully devoted followers of Jesus, to build kids on a firm foundation of God’s Word, and to walk with kids as they explore God’s paths in their everyday lives. 


We have an incredible group of well trained, screened volunteers that are ready to welcome your child each week. Their goal is to not only teach the word of God, but to build a relationship with them making them feel welcome in God’s Backyard.


Visiting us for the first time? No fear! One of our volunteers will show you where our Children's Check-In is when you arrive. We will meet your family, check your child into class, and answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you!


Volunteers at God's Backyard are trained to create an atmosphere where families can confidently leave their children while they are in service. Every volunteer is screened with a background check and the kids hallway is monitored by security personnel, as well as security cameras. Don't worry parents - we've got this!


Your child will experience an age appropriate lesson that will teach them about God and His love for them. The teaching is interactive and utilizes multiple approaches for different learning styles. The goal at Mountain View Community Church is for children to understand who Jesus is and how He can make a difference in their lives. They will also have a lot of fun!
