CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

KIDS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF UABC!

Kids are a valued part of our church family! We believe the church is a place where kids are always welcome and can lead. As a multi-generational congregation, children are provided many opportunities to learn and serve alongside different age groups during the worship service, weekday ministry opportunities, and special events. 
 
We take your child’s safety very seriously. Before serving any child, children’s ministry volunteers must pass a criminal background check. Each kids’ group is led by at minimum of 2 adults at all times.
 
The kids’ ministry team is a trained group of adults who are passionate about the spiritual formation of children. We seek to encourage kids to identify their oikos, empower them to engage their oikos, and equip them to talk about who God is and who He has called them to be. Children are encouraged to be curious about God’s Story as they engage in hands-on missions education classes, Sunday School, Awana Club, weekday Bible studies, and special events.
