Equipping Kids to Encounter God
Antioch Kids (A-Kids) is passionate about equipping kids to be loving disciples of Jesus! Yes, even the littlest ones! When your kids step into our classrooms, they will learn about God, have fun with friends, and leave feeling known and loved. Learning about God doesn’t have to happen just on Sundays though. We believe that the home is the center of a child’s spiritual development (Deuteronomy 6), so our heart is to equip parents with the tools to help their kids grow in their relationship with Jesus through newsletters with helpful resources and events throughout the year.
First Time at Antioch Kids
If this is your first time visiting on a Sunday, welcome! We are so glad you’re here! Look for our A-Kids volunteers (they will be wearing a white Antioch Kids Ministry tag on) to help you check in at one of the Kids Ministry check-in stations. You’ll be provided with security stickers to place on your child and to keep on yourself, and we’ll show you and your child to their classroom. After the service is over, show your child’s sticker to their classroom teacher or volunteer to pick them up. If you are needed for any reason during the service, one of our staff members or volunteers will come find you.
All of our A-Kids volunteers have a heart for investing in the next generation of world changers, and love interacting with each and every child. Every volunteer has been carefully screened with background checks and routinely undergo safety training.
If you have any further questions, please email our Kids Administrator and we’d be happy to find you answers!
Antioch Kids Preschool Ministry serves children ages birth through kindergarten. Our classrooms are nurturing, engaging spaces for kids to play, learn, and grow. From the earliest ages, kids learn to connect with Jesus through hands-on activities, worship, and hearing God’s big story!
We have many opportunities to connect with other moms of little ones. You don’t have to tackle motherhood alone!
