AFC Kids

We combine the life-changing stories of the Bible with fun-filled games and hands-on activities that make learning fun and memorable! Our four main goals are for children to experience God’s grace and extend it to others, grow in their faith, discover their gifts, and find friendship in groups where they can belong in the family of God!


If you are coming to AFC for the first time, you can pre-register your children ages birth – 5th grade here: Welcome to AFC Kids!  

Check-In & Check-Out

Check-in opens 15 minutes prior to each service. Upon your arrival at AFC, come to our Kids Check-In Station (a greeter will gladly assist you). A staff member will print tags for both you and your children. Only the person with the identifying coded tag will be able to check-out your children in that same location.

Nursery Ministry (ages 0-3 years)

PreK & K Schedule (ages 4-5 years)

  • After getting checked-in, your children will go to the PreK & K Worship Center for children’s worship, prayer, and fun age-appropriate teaching activities!

Elementary Schedule (grades 1-5)

Intergenerational Worship & Prayer + Age Appropriate Children’s Sermon

  • After getting checked-in, elementary children will remain with their parents/guardians in the family worship service until you see the message on the screens that says, “It’s Time for Children’s Church!” At that time, children will be accompanied by members of our children’s leadership team to the AFC Kids Worship Center for an interactive children’s sermon and fun learning activities!  We prioritize intergenerational worship and prayer time because we believe it is an important part of a child’s spiritual development.  It also helps families bond and begin faith conversations at home.  We also desire for every person to hear the Word of God taught at an age-appropriate level.  We have taken these two goals of intergenerational worship and age-appropriate teaching and formulated an excellent elementary worship schedule!
