Avenue Kids – Children’s Ministry


Our mission is to support children and families in making, maturing, and multiplying disciples.

We believe that parents have the primary responsibility for the spiritual growth of their children and we as a church seek to assist in their spiritual development with interactive Bible lessons, exciting games, hands-on application, and participation in worship.

In everything we do, we strive to uphold the following values: Christ Centered, Kid Targeted, Safety, Excellence, Relevance, and Fun

Sunday Mornings:
9:30 AM: Nursery / Preschool Life Groups / Kids Life Groups
11:00 AM: Nursery / Preschool Life Groups / Avenue Kids Worship Hour



  • VBS – July 17th – 21st from 6:00 – 8:30pm


LIFE GROUPS – This is a designated time for all children to get a closer look at the story of Jesus. Our curriculum is from Lifeway. The Gospel Project for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.11707571_10207047210760950_2384175206510509982_n

AVENUE KIDS WORSHIP – During our 11:00 hour, 1st – 5th graders dive into the 252 Basics, based on three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what, and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

AWANA – Will be back starting in September, we will be offering Awana for children ages 3 through 5th grade. Awana is an International Bible-centered program. Cubbies (ages 3, 4, & 5), Sparks (Grades K-2), and Truth & Training (Grades 3-5), learn the importance of God’s Word, what it means to be a Christian, and how to have fun together during Game Time, Handbook Time, and Council Time!

Welcome! We’re happy that you’re going to visit! Please stop by the Children’s Welcome Desk in the middle of the building to check your child in. Complete an information card and then we’ll print two tags for you. One tag will print with your child’s name, any allergies they may have, and the class they are in. Place the name tag on your child and keep the other to present when picking up your child. We’ll also show you where your child’s class is located and introduce you to his or her teachers.
