Mission Possible Kids
What is MPK?
This ministry, led by Pastor Abi and several volunteer coaches, is designed for students, 3rd – 6th grades, meets monthly on 3rd Fridays of every month from 6 to 8:00 pm and includes a light dinner, a variety of fun activities that help build strong friendships and faith, and typically a hands-on service project at St. Stephen’s UMC. Occasionally, service projects are off-site.
Each month, parents are asked to RSVP for their student by emailing Karen Wells by 3 pm on the Thursday immediately prior to MPK so that enough food and / or drivers are lined up.
In November, MPK will be hosting a diaper drive to share with our local Diaper Bank and the Fairfax County Battered Women’s Shelter. If you would like to donate diapers, collection bins will be located near the children’s Sunday School kiosks Nov. 6 and 13. MPK tweens will be learning more about babies around the world and how to take care of babies in their own community on Friday, Nov. 18. Thanks in advance!

Pictured left, several of our tweens are interviewing some of our Senior members who reside at Greenspring — learning about life was like when they were the student’s ages! In the picture at the top, MPKs learned about the issue of hunger in Fairfax County and packed turkey baskets and toys for the students who attend Braddock Road Elementary School.
Every summer, MPK hosts a week long day camp the last week of July. The picture to the right is half of the group of kids serving at Rising Hope Mission Church, a church whose members are primarily homeless.
