Children’s Ministries

Christ Focused and Bible Centered

Ongoing Children’s Events

AWANA is our mid-week children’s program for kids ages 3 through 8th grade, with the goal is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ and train them to serve him.  The program goes all through the school year – it is never too late to sign up and join in on the fun activities, Scripture memorization, and lessons. Friends are not only welcome to attend AWANA, they are encouraged! These special events are perfect opportunities to invite friends who may not know Jesus!

Sunday Morning with Kids

Whether we’re at home or together on a Sunday morning worshiping the Lord, discipling your kids and loving Jesus never changes. 

Come bring your kids from birth through 5th grade to our children’s wing on Sunday mornings. They’ll worship, learn and play in a Christ focused, Bible Centered way.  

Kids are ALWAYS welcome in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings! Don’t worry about the wiggles and kid noise, we don’t mind one bit!

If you’re worshiping from home, this is the perfect opportunity to teach your children what loving and worshiping God looks like up close! It doesn’t need to be complicated and it doesn’t need to be hard.  

Each Sunday a team of loving, safe and trained adults will care for your kids newborn through age 5.  Kids will learn about Jesus through Bible Stories, Worship, Snacks and Guided Play.

Your 1st through 5th graders will learn about God through interactive, Christ Focused Bible Lessons.  Kids will hear great Bible Stories with daily life applications, meaningful worship, and guided activities, crafts and play.  

First Time Visitor FAQs

Who will care for my child?

Each of our volunteers has been carefully screened, routinely back ground checked and trained in our safety and security polices. Each class is staffed by two adults and at least one youth worker.

What will you teach my child?

Our goal is to be Bible Centered and Christ focused in all that we teach and do.  We use Generations of Grace Curriculum.  Generations of Grace is a biblically based, unified curriculum for children ages three to twelve designed to edify teachers, evangelize children and encourage families.  This three year survey of the Bible will take kids from the old Testament to the New Testament covering every major story of the Bible.  

How do I check in my child?

Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early on your first visit. We’ll be able to direct you to the classrooms and answer any questions. For your first visit, we will require some basic contact information for your family. Your child will receive a printed name tag and you will receive a matching tag.  We verify parents for kids of birth through early elementary school.

What if my child needs me during service?

At the time of check-in, a loving and trained volunteer leader will greet you. You will be asked to provide us with a phone number for a cell phone that you have in your possession. In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will send you a text message. (Remember to leave your cell phone on vibrate/silence during the service.) If your child cries, our caring volunteer leaders will immediately soothe your child. If your child cries for an extended period of time, we will text you. You and your child will receive a check-in tag specifically created for your child. To ensure their security, your child will not be released without presentation of your corresponding tag.

What if I would like to visit?

Parents are always welcome to observe our classrooms.  We work hard at making sure that our Children’s Minsitry is a safe place.   Adults who are not serving are encouraged to leave the Children’s Ministry space once the service has begun.  If you’d like to observe, please make arrangements with the lobby host. 

What is ABC’s well child policy?

We operate a well-child environment. For the protection of all the children in our ministry, we cannot accept a child with a runny nose, cold symptoms,  fever within 24 hours, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea or any other signs of illness. We request that you not place your child in the program while they are at risk of exposing other children. Thank you in advance for helping us to keep Avondale Bible Church a healthy place!

Do you feed my child a snack?

Our children’s ministry is a peanut and gluten free environment. If your child has a food allergy or sensitivity, please add an allergy sticker to their name tag and let the adult volunteers in their class aware of their dietary restrictions. 

How do I volunteer?

We would love to talk with you about joining our kids team!  Please contact the office to begin the process of being interviewed and background checked.  

Have more questions?

We are happy to answer them in person on Sunday or anytime by email
