Kids: Summer Sunday Nights
June 24th - July 22nd, 2018
This summer we're helping kids (K-6th grade) discover more about living life to the full in Christ at our AMPED Sunday night summer event. Kids will have a blast at the games, snack and craft stations that reinforce what we learn from the Bible! The final night (July 22) will be a family experience, so please plan to join us as the kids and the team share a small sampling of what we've learned. Don't forget to register to serve too! Each year dads, moms, teens (15+), and college students are encouraged to join us in this fun, short-term leadership role. Please note on your calendar that we will not be meeting on June 17 (Father's Day) and that this event goes 15 minutes longer than our normal Sunday Evening Activities.

SEE A MOVEMENT // We are a part of a great movement. It all started with Jesus' word of commission to the early apostles. These men would carry Jesus' message to the ends of the earth. The early church would evolve and develop as time went on, bringing well-chiseled reform to doctrine as well as the way church functions. Come and explore with us the great history of Jesus and the church.

FIND YOUR FIT // The Apostle Paul says that the church is like a body, and one part cannot say to another "I don't need you." We are all dependent on one another, and this is a good thing. This class offers you an opportunity to discover some gifts that you may have not known about and allows you to know where to best plug in to our church.
Kids Camp (ages 8-12)
July 9th - July 13th, 2018
All kids ages 8 -12 are invited to be part of Kids Camp, a 5-day adventure that produces life-changing results in the lives of kids. Camp is filled with fun, excitement, friendship, worship, challenging messages and powerful experiences with God. It’s a wonderful way for kids to build lasting friendships.
This year's camp experience includes a pool (only 5ft deep, must pass swim test), a ropes course, a huge climbing wall, giant swing, new basketball courts, sand volleyball, and memories to last a lifetime!
Cost: $245 per child
(Sibling discount applies with 3 or more registrations within a family).
$50 (non-refundable) deposit will hold your child's spot and is applied to the total cost. Spots are based upon camp availability. For your convenience, payments can be made through this site as often as you wish. Cost includes registration, lodging, meals, transportation and recreational activities!
Dorm Leader (discounted rate): $75 per adult leader
Please register by Tuesday, June 19 to avoid an additional $20 (camp's late fee)
September 20th - September 21st, 2018
This event will focus on personal growth and community as you learn all about our Family Ministry strategy from some of the best minds in ministry. When our leaders attend they benefit as a leader, as a parent and as a child of God. You will be so glad you went if you choose to join us. We find that the church and the students/kids benefit greatly as our leaders grow. For this reason, we have set aside funds to pay for a portion of the cost for you to go. We want to invest in you.
Most years this is a big trip we take to LA. But this year, through the help of my buddy Kenny Conley, the Orange Tour is coming to PHX! It's actually coming right here to Mission Community Church! We will just meet at the event both Thurs night at Friday.
There is a one day Early Bird rate available to us, so please take action on this right away to save money.
