What is ANTIOCH KIDS?
We love your kids and make them a priority on Sunday mornings!
We welcome ages 6months - 5th grade into age specific Antioch Kids spaces full of fun, learning, snacks, and friendship!
If you have a little one that is younger than 6 months or a child that is above 5th grade, you can bring him/her into the service.
“Antioch Kids exists to make disciples of Jesus and to help equip families in living Kingdom culture at home.”
Love God, Love our Friends & Family and Love Others. (Matthew 22:36-40)
In each class, we incorporate age-appropriate worship, fun and interactive activities and teachings about Jesus and the Bible.
Our Children's Ministry begins checking kids in 15 minutes prior to service at the Check-in desk, and closes 15 minutes after the start time of service.
Check In - Opens 9:45 | Closes 10:15
Simply follow the signs to the kids check-in desk or ask one of our volunteers for assistance.
At the check-in desk, both you and your child will receive a sticker with matching security codes. See below for more details.
You will receive a sticker upon checking your child into Antioch Kids.
Please do not lose your sticker. - You must have your sticker to enter into the Antioch Kids area.
If you do not have your sticker at the time you wish to pick up your child, please see the kids worker at the check-in desk. They will verify your identity and print you another sticker.
If you're sending any other family member (sibling, grandparent, aunt, etc.), they must have the sticker to pick up your child. Please try and notify the workers in your classroom of this change in pick-up, before the service.
NO DIAPER CHANGING POLICY
We have a no diaper changing policy. If your child is in need of a diaper change while he or she is with us, we will notify you as soon as we notice the need.
Baby and Toddler Classes
We aim to provide an environment that is peaceful and fun for our youngest children. Before the service, we take time to pray a blessing over the class so that they can experience the presence of God while in Antioch Kids and a sense of security and peace even when apart from you. Your child will get to learn about Jesus through play, singing, Bible stories, prayer and snacks!
Please bring a cup with a lid labeled with your child’s first name for snack time.

Pre-School to Kindergarten Classes
Kids learn that life with Jesus is fun! In these classes, your child will get to learn about Jesus through play, snacks, arts and crafts, interactive Bible story time, age appropriate worship, scripture memorization, and our interactive small group time. At the end of each Sunday, your child will receive a take home hand-out that will tell you what your child learned in class that Sunday morning along with the scripture we are memorizing for that month and a parenting discipleship guide!
If your child is 4 years old or younger, please bring a cup with a lid labeled with your child’s first name for snack time.
If your child is 5 years old and older, we encourage them to bring their own Bibles.

Your child will learn to love Jesus by studying the Bible and the values of God’s Kingdom through age appropriate worship, scripture memorization, and our interactive small group time. We spend our time learning lessons that stem from our three core values and tie into the bigger-picture of our mission statement. We practice spending time with God, worshiping God and praying for others. We also learn what it means to be a part of God's kingdom and put loving others into practice. At the end of each Sunday, your child will receive a take home hand-out that will tell you what your child learned in class that Sunday morning along with the scripture we are memorizing for that month and a parenting discipleship guide. We also encourage this age group to bring their own Bibles on Sunday mornings.
