Children are a blessing and are always welcome at Antioch! We offer Sunday school, Children’s Church and Nursery to help children learn about God in a fun and safe environment.
At Antioch, we call the Children’s Ministry “KidZone”. Our desire is to create a “zone” for kids that fosters the idea that church is a community where a child can learn about God and life while having fun doing it. We want every child to realize that pursuing a relationship with Christ is the most exciting adventure he or she can take – that following Christ happens “where they live.” It is a daily pursuit, and we hope for each child to say “Why wouldn’t I want a relationship with Christ?”
We strive to make your child’s experience with us a safe one. At your child’s first visit we will have you complete an “About Me” form to help us get to know you and your child better. This form includes stages of development for the little ones and general info about mom and dad too. You are welcome to bring your child, and stay if desired, to your child’s classroom where a classroom volunteer will greet your child and answer any questions you might have. All of our volunteers are background checked and look forward to teaching your children about Jesus!
We divide the children’s ministry into three divisions:
- – Nursery (0-24 months)
- – Preschool (2 years to Pre-K)
- -Elementary (Kindergarten to 5th grade)
NOTE: Some 4-year-olds move up to elementary based on the ability to sit longer, etc.
Each division is taught Biblical truth at a level appropriate to their age. During the service, your preschool and elementary child will be taught a lesson based on the same content you will hear in the adult worship service. This helps facilitate family discussions during the week about what you’ve learned and opened the door to discussions of other spiritual topics as well.
On Wednesdays at 7pm, we also offer KidZone classes. This is a chance for 4-12 year olds to have fun while learning the word, and mom and dad can attend our regular service at the same time upstairs.
If for any reason we need you during the service we will send you a text message (please have your phone on vibrate) or have an usher come and get you.
We hope to make your child’s time with us one of the most exciting times of their week, as well as a time that is helpful to their walk with Christ.
We would be honored to have you visit us!
