We Love Introducing Children to the Love of Jesus

“But Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them!
For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.’”
— Matthew 19:14, NLT

At Avoca Christian, we value your kids. We know how important they are to you, and they are just as important to us. But even more, we know how important they are to Jesus. Our goal is to share the love of Jesus with children of every age. Through our curriculum, we want to teach children how to then share the love of Jesus with their family and friends. It's the same as our vision for our church: Helping Kids Take Their Next Step Toward Jesus. It's that simple. Our Kid’s Programs are for children from birth through 5th grade.

So how do we introduce kids to the love of jesus? 

  • We know that children learn differently than adults, and we target our lessons to meet them on their level.

  • We focus on teaching them a Christ-centered worldview with specific and practical lessons about how they can apply the lessons in the Bible to their own lives. In addition to teaching them about God's love, we also teach them about God's law so that they can learn at any early age how to be obedient to Christ.

  • We also make learning fun! We incorporate lots of exciting and creative activities into our weekly programs to make the lessons memorable and fun.

  • Safety and security is important it us, just as it is to you as a parent. Our volunteers take the safety of your children very seriously. From the moment you leave them in our care, your children are never left unsupervised.

Our kid's Ministry meets in the kids ministry building:

Simply follow the signs or ask one of our greeters and they will take your family to our secure check in. We have dedicated a space, that is only accessible by parents, just for our kids. Our volunteers have been background checked for extra precaution.
