Children's Ministry

On Sunday mornings, our 1st-5th grade students learn together in Fun Church. Our number one desire is for children to know how amazing our God is! We want them to love coming to church and look forward to being back every week. Our ministry has three major goals: to know who God is; to understand his Word; and to live out what we learn.

During the church hour, the children are allowed to choose a snack and relax together. Then we have a get to know you time, worship together, and study the lesson which usually involves a hands on demonstration of some kind. If you stay for Life Group, your child will have the opportunity to play in our special game rooms and do unique activities that reinforce the day's lesson. We also take this time to hone our Bible Skills by learning where the books of the Bible are located and how to memorize scripture for ourselves.

We pray that you will be encouraged by our efforts and know that Murdock teachers are doing our best to help you raise up kids who love God and honor Him with their lives.

Women's Ministry

Join us as we strive to enrich the lives of women. We want women to be grounded in God’s word and to be all they can possibly be right where God has them planted.  Whether this woman is a student, career woman, mother or a long time believer we want to equip her to fall in love with Jesus and allow that love to permeate every area of her life.  We do this by offering challenging Bible studies and discipleship classes that give women a time to not only learn God’s word, but also allows them to fellowship and meet other women who share the same joys and struggles.  Our hope is that as our women face day to day challenges they will be equipped to stand firm in the Lord, have friends to stand with them and be able to tell others about Christ, her hope.

Preschool Ministry

Preschoolers are important at Murdock Baptist Church. We at MBC recognize that investing in our children is the Church functioning in its educational task of teaching and training those who will become its future members and leaders. Our Preschool Team staff does far more than just provide childcare.  We see our ministry as a God-given opportunity to teach preschoolers about the love of Jesus and to partner with their parents in their spiritual development.  We focus on meeting the child at their level, providing a safe, loving environment while creating a meaningful and enjoyable class experience filled with new Bible adventures every week.

“Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:14 NASB

 

Our preschool is open to children from Birth-Kindergarten and meets every Sunday during 9:00am Worship and 11:00am Adult Life Group; as well as 6:00pm Wednesday evening Bible Study.

We utilize a state of the art secure fingerprint check in/out system; and each classroom is staffed with two team members to provide the utmost safety for the children.

We look forward to meeting you and your child and invite you to join us on our next adventure.

L.I.T.T. | Student Ministry

LITT exists to help students see their need for and begin a relationship with Christ.  After beginning this relationship, we help the student lay a foundation on living out this new relationship in every area of their life. There are 2 recurring weekly events. Wednesday night Bible study that meets at the student building from 5:45-7:15pm.  During this time the students will be involved in a large group teaching time, age appropriate small groups, games and musical worship. Sunday morning from 11-11:45am the students will be in age and gender divided life groups that meet in the student building.  These times give the students the opportunity to dig into the Bible and find out how to live out this relationship

Other activities students take part in include:

Age specific conferences | Summer Camp | Mission Trips | Movie Nights | Game Nights | Service Projects | Just to name a few.

 

Please come join us at any of the above activities.

We are looking forward to all students being

LITT (Living In The Truth).
