APCC Kids offers programs for newborns through sixth grade during the service. Our Children’s Ministry is a safe environment where children experience God in a personal way through the teaching of Scripture. We prayerfully desire to partner with families to "train up a child in the way he should go" (Proverbs 22:6) laying a solid biblical foundation resulting in devoted followers of Christ.
Nursery (6 month olds - 3 year olds)
We help the youngest children understand that church is a safe and caring environment. Volunteers share God's love through play and care-giving. During the lesson toddlers hear a basic Bible story, sing Bible songs, and do a craft related to the story.
Preschool - Kindergarten (4 - 6 year olds)
After attending corporate worship, children will be dismissed to their classrooms. In the classroom children experience God through interactive Bible lessons, a growing understanding of how to use the Bible, and hands-on activities. These activities include guided-play, crafts, singing, prayer, and more. They even begin to memorize monthly Bible verses.
Lower Elementary (Grades 1 - 3)
After attending worship with the rest of the APCC church family, children will be dismissed to their classrooms. During this time children will participate in games, interactive Bible lessons, hands-on activities, small group discussions, Bible skills, prayer, memory verses, and more. Our goal is to help children grow in their personal relationships with Christ by teaching them biblical truths and helping them witness to their peers.
Upper Elementary (Grades 4 - 6)
Students will attend worship with their families. Once in the classroom, students will gain a deeper understanding of the Gospel as they dig into theological truths. Students will have structured lessons, group discussions, prayer time, and more.
Toddlers - 3rd Graders are using The Gospel Project curriculum. It is a 3 year chronological study of God's Word. It's written in such a way that children see how each story fits into God's plan of redemption. It teaches doctrine, theology, and life application. The goal of this currriculum is for children to be on mission as they become devoted followers of Christ.
4 - 6th Graders are using the Children Desiring God curriculum. This curriculum dives deep into theology "imparting to children a vision of God, who He is, and who we are in relation to Him, and to establish them with a foundation of doctrine and truth."
