Welcome to all who are spiritually weary and seek rest, to all who mourn and long for comfort, to all who struggle and desire victory, to all who sin and need a Savior, to all who are strangers and want fellowship, to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness, and to all who will come. This church opens wide her doors and offers welcome in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.




Our Mission

In Children’s Ministry, at the Mountain Lake Alliance Church, we will be a dynamic, spiritually forming, and family-empowering ministry that offers a vibrant weekend curriculum, as well as other family resources that meet the specific needs of today's generation. Our kids will be given a strong foundation of biblical knowledge in an environment where they can encounter the Living God. Children will open their hearts to God, learn to discern His voice, have a desire to obey Him, and do so in the power of the Holy Spirit (Phil. 2:13).

Children's Ministry Policies

Nursery (Infant through 24 months)

Ministry to young children is very much a ministry of spreading the fragrance of the knowledge of Jesus. Words, prayers, songs, and stories about Jesus fill our nursery. By praying for the babies we seek to fill the very youngest in our care with the fragrance of Jesus.2014-02-12 20.50.45.jpg

Our baby nursery is located in our lower level. We offer nursery each Sunday, during both worship services and during the Sunday School hour.

Safety is very important in our nursery. We make every effort to staff our nursery with responsible,loving,informed adults. Please make sure you let the volunteer(s) know if you have any special needs or concerns for your baby.
