Service Time Update: May 26, One Sunday service @ 10AM


We are training up a generation that encounters God, and responds to Him by loving what he loves and doing what he does.

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. Our Preschool classrooms (4 months-kindergarten) are located to the right of the foyer under the A-Kids sign. Our Elementary classes (1st-6th grade) meet in the Venue. 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 every child. Every volunteer has been carefully screened with background checks and routinely undergoes 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 4 months 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!

  • Baby Dedications
  • Moms of Preschoolers Play Group
  • Preschool Playdates
  • Wisdom for the Journey


Antioch Kids

Antioch Kids Elementary Ministry serves grades 1-6. Each week, our kids are engaged and grow in spiritual maturity and wisdom through relevant, impactful Bible lessons and intentional small group times with their peers and leaders.

We learn, grow, and connect outside of Sundays at various events throughout the year.

  • Fall Retreat
  • 5th & 6th grade hangouts
  • Kids Camp



Head into our foyer and our A-Kids front desk is located to your right! Look for one of our volunteers to help you get checked in. You'll be provided with a security tag, and we’ll help escort both you and your child to their classroom. After the service is over, show your child’s tag to their classroom teacher for pick up. If you are needed for any reason during the service, either your tag number will flash on the screen until you are able to attend to your child, or one of our staff members or volunteers will come find you during the service.


Yes! Our new Moms & Babies Room is located in the back right corner of the auditorium. There is comfy seating, a changing table, water and snacks, and plenty of privacy.


Classrooms open 15 minutes before the service begins. Please be mindful of our A-Kids volunteers and promptly pick up your child after the service.


We are excited to celebrate with you! Our baby dedication services are a time where you declare your intent to raise your child to follow God, the church pledges to support and stand with you, and we pray a blessing over your child. Baby dedication classes and services happen periodically throughout the year, so please email our Kids Administrator for more information.


In Mark 10:14, Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” If your child has given their life to Jesus, let one of our A-Kids staff members know so we can celebrate their step of faith with their baptism at an upcoming Sunday service!
