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 Church, 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.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR KIDS:
10:00-11:30 A.M. - Worship Service with age specific instruction period.
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.
Easter "Flashlight scavenger hunt":
We are super excited for our Easter Event this year, the “Flashlight Scavenger Hunt & Movie Night”! We will be having this event on Friday March 26th at 7p.m. Easter egg hunts are a staple when it comes to springtime events. And while kids love running around collecting as many plastic eggs as they can, it is easy to forget the significance of Easter – namely, Jesus! “Flashlight Scavenger Hunt” is a fun, new twist to the traditional Easter egg hunt! Kids will become kid-tectives as they solve puzzles and hunt for clues in the dark, which reveal what – or who – Easter is all about! So, bring your families and friends. Invite your neighbors and coworkers! Bring a flashlight if possible! We will also be watching a family-friendly Easter movie!
Yes, invite kids but make sure they get registered below, so we know how many are coming. This event is for kids up through 5th grade.
