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.  

Our Sunday School Program

Each Sunday a team of qualified and trained volunteers care for all children from birth through age 5. In our early childhood Sunday School rooms, children will be involved in age-appropriate Bible lessons, arts and crafts, snacks, and playtime.

Your kindergarten through 2nd students will learn about God through interactive, Christ-focused Bible lessons. Students will be taught Bible lessons using the Generations of Grace curriculum. This includes daily life applications, meaningful worship, guided activities, crafts, and play.  

Your 3rd through 5th grade students will learn about God through interactive, Christ-focused Bible lessons. Students will be taught Bible lessons using the Generations of Grace curriculum. This includes daily life applications, meaningful worship, guided activities, crafts, and play.

First Time Visitor FAQs

Who will care for my child?

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

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 the 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. Remember to bring the matching tag to check-out when you come to pick up your child.

What if my child needs me during service?

At the time of check-in, a trained volunteer will greet you and collect your contact information. 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 during the service.) If your child cries, our volunteer team will work to 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 my child's classroom?

Parents are always welcome to observe our classrooms. We work hard at making sure that our Children’s Ministry is a safe place.  Adults who are not serving are encouraged to leave the Children’s Ministry Wing 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 and volunteers in our ministry, we cannot accept a child who is (or has been) exhibiting the following symptoms in the last 24 hours: fever, rash, persistent cough, diarrhea, or 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!

Will you provide my child a snack?

Our children’s ministry is a peanut-free and gluten-free environment. If your child has a food allergy or sensitivity, please communicate the allergy at check-in and it will be printed on your child’s name tag.

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 or by email.
