We’re a church that is FOR families. We want to support you through every phase! 

From building community and encouraging involvement to deepening faith and loving our neighbours… there’s a place for everyone, as we journey through life and faith together.

Each week new videos and activity guides for parents and MTCCpreschool children are shared in our Facebook group. 

Virtual Storytime events are held on Zoom as scheduled.

Kids in grades 1-5 have fun connecting with friends and leaders each week at Virtual Sunday School on Zoom! 

MTCCkids Tuesday Night: “The So & So Show” is made available each week to reinforce the week’s lesson. 

Access “God Time” kids devos that connect with what your child is learning each week in a way that connects with the phase your child is in.

Life is middle school is full of fun, friends, and frenzy! Students in grades 6-8 connect each week on Zoom in small groups that help them wrestle with faith and live it out in practical ways that connect with their phase of life. 

Junior highers are also connected to hub groups to help them stay connected with each other and with Jesus. 

Scheduled youth group events help them build relationships that matter.

Weekly small groups on Zoom help students in grades 9-12 solidify their faith and recognize how God can use them in their world as they put it into practice. 

Hub groups help them stay connected and encourage them to be positive examples to those in their circle of influence. 

Scheduled youth group events help them strengthen important relationships.

Young adults are at a phase of life when decisions, relationships, and faith are vital as they enter their next chapters of life. Small groups help lay important foundations for healthy adult faith.

Students receive individual and group instruction in brass, percussion, vocal, theory and music composition. 

During COVID-19, instruction is given online.

Youth & Chidlren's Ministry Staff

Rather than a full-time individual, hired as our youth pastor, our Youth & Children’s Ministry is led by a team
of part-time, contracted staff, each investing 10 hours/week to help lead their area of ministry.
They are supported by a passionate team of volunteers who help ministries from infancy to young adult make a difference in the lives of the next generation.
