AWESOME ADVENTURES – Children’s Ministry


Read More

AWESOME ADVENTURES exists to teach and train children about the Love of Christ and how to draw near to Him as their personal Savior. We desire to come alongside parents in the teaching and training of their children in God’s Word. Our team leaders and teachers are dedicated to serving children as they grow in their faith and develop a lifestyle of worshiping the Lord.

All of our teachers and volunteers have completed a Gospel Alliance ‘Safe-Place’ training class which includes age-level training, and a thorough review of our safety and security policies.  We also require child abuse clearances and criminal background checks on each of our leaders. This detailed process ensures that we will provide your child with the best possible care in a safe and secure child-friendly environment.

We are excited to offer various children’s ministries on Sunday Morning and during the week designed for children from birth through 6th grade.  Each of our ministries focuses on instilling God’s Word into children’s hearts through prayer, scripture memorization, Bible lessons, interactive stories, and worship. Our children are mission minded and are being prepared to be disciples for Christ Jesus in their neighborhoods and across the world.

We invite you to come and be part of AWESOME ADVENTURES as you visit a class with your child, ask questions, and get to know us better. Whether you are visiting or plan to make Gospel Alliance Church your home, we are really glad you are here!

Nursery:  Our Little Adventures Nursery is staffed with trained, caring adults who provide a safe and secure environment.  Our check-in, notification, and pick-up process is simple, yet very efficient.  This detailed process ensures that we will provide your child with the best possible care in a safe and secure child-friendly environment.

Each room is equipped with age appropriate toys and an opportunity to interact with others.

Age 5 to 5th grade

Your child will experience an energetic hour of interactive Bible study and worship. After beginning with a time of prayer and scripture review, the students dig into God’s word with the D6 curriculum. Based on Deuteronomy 6, this curriculum provides a 6-year study of the Bible, challenging students to learn and apply the truths of God’s word. A time of worship with upbeat music leads the students to respond with praise.
