AL KIDS MINISTRY

Explore the ministry opportunities for your children at ALC!

Kids Ministry at ALC

At Abundant Life Church, our kids (infant through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.


Your First Visit

Here's what to expect when visiting AL Kids for the first time:


First, find the children's ministry check-in desk located to the right of our auditorium. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.


Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):


  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How Check-in Works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.


After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to the check-in desk and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.



Sunday Mornings at AL Kids

As a group, we bring the kids into the auditorium and worship down front for 15-20 minutes. We come back to the classroom when worship is finished and have a variety of activities that could include a lesson, prayer time, memory verse reciting for a prize, craft, games, and object lessons that are very interactive.


We currently use DIG IN Curriculum for ages 5-5th grade. You'll love that DIG IN curriculum moves kids from knowing about the historical Jesus to knowing Him personally. With DIG IN lessons, kids grow in a relationship with Jesus. Kids love that the lessons are experiential, offering multisensory, educationally sound experiences that immerse kids in learning, rather than just teacher talk. Through these Bible lessons for kids, children get time to talk and process thoughts and concepts instead of only listening. 

Sunday Mornings at AL Tots

Your littles are in great hands with our AL Tots! We love infants and toddlers at ALC!


We have wonderful volunteers and teachers who will love your sweet babes and toddlers. Our nursery provides care for infants-2 year-olds, and our toddler room provides care for our 2-4 year-olds.


In our nursery, we have toys, swings, rocking chairs, and lots of love to give! We love to cuddle and play with our sweet ALC babies!


In our toddler room, we have craft time, lessons that include Bible teachings and Bible songs, snack time, playtime, and even outside time!


All of our volunteers have background checks and come ready to serve your precious family.

A Note from our Children's Director

Hey ALC Family!


I am excited to serve your family by empowering our amazing lead teachers and volunteers to minister to your children through Bible teachings, interactive lessons, crafts, and much more!


Another face you may be familiar with is my wonderful husband, Jayson "Jay." He is serving as the resident for all things technology and general problem solver. God has given him a creative mind and a huge heart for people. I am so blessed to have him serving alongside me! Together we have a 3 year-old girl named Harper and a 4 month-old son named Wylder. We love being parents and being involved with teaching the love of Jesus to young children!


You will find us at the check-in counter on Sunday mornings ready to greet your wonderful family!
