Antioch Kids Ministry exists to provide a dynamic and fun environment where children can encounter God.
We believe that teaching children to love God and others takes place in both the home and in the church. Each Sunday, your child will learn about Jesus and the Bible in creative and age-appropriate ways. We also want to equip parents to train their children in the Gospel throughout the week. Your child’s safety and care is a priority to us. Each of our devoted volunteers have been carefully screened and trained. Our Listen. Follow. Love. foundation gives you a thorough insight into our classroom boundaries and expectations.
What to Expect
Our Kids Ministry is offered during our Sunday service, with check-in opening at 9:45am. Upon arriving proceed to the Kids Check-In Desk, our volunteers are here to assist you as needed.
On your first visit you will fill out a registration card. Then both you and your child will receive a security sticker with matching security codes. Our volunteers would be happy to walk you to your child’s classroom after worship.
The security sticker is important because:
- If your child’s classroom needs you during the service, the security code will be displayed on the screen in the auditorium.
- Your sticker is required for picking up your child at the end of the service. For security purposes, only adults with matching codes will be allowed to check-out a child.
KIDS IN WORSHIP
We have the exciting opportunity to have Kindergarten-age and older children in the main service for the first 2 worship songs, worshiping alongside their parents. Of course you may have your younger children in worship as well, but if you choose to have them in their classroom, our Kids Ministry team will be in their class, ready to serve your family.
At Antioch we believe that it is encounters with God that help lead us to transformation. That process of encountering God and being transformed happens not only on an individual basis but also on a corporate level and a family level. As families when we make space to seek an encounter with God together we position our family to be transformed as a result.
As a parent I know that it is my primary responsibility to train my kids in the ways of God, including worship. As church leaders we recognize it is our job to equip you to do the work of God and our desire is to give you the space and the place to now incorporate that training on a Sunday morning.
The Nursery, Toddler, and Preschool rooms will be open at 9:45 am – please feel free to bring your Nursery, Toddler, and Preschool children into Worship for the first 2 songs, or they can go straight into their Antioch Kids rooms where the awesome serving team will be there to take care of them.

Dedicating your child is a commitment to raise your child aligned with Biblical principles. It is also a great way to become connected in our community by inviting our parents to journey with you. Throughout the year we celebrate our children together in our service with child dedication. If you are interested in making this commitment please contact our Kids Ministry.
