At ARCC, we LOVE kids!  We believe our mission to make disciples whose joy and identity is founded and rooted in the Gospel of Jesus starts with our children. We strive to serve our kids and their families by providing a safe and secure environment where kids are valued, loved and cared for. Children experience a safe, fun, and inviting place to learn about who God is, what He's done, and who they are in light of that.

We hope you'll come join us!

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

What to expect on Sunday Mornings

Check In

When you enter on Sunday Mornings you will see our children's check in table. There you will be greeted by one of our volunteers who will get you checked in. Your child will be given a name tag and you will be given a pick-up tag that is tied to it.  This helps us make sure that our kid's are safe and can't be picked up by anyone other than who checked them in. We'll check to see if your child has any allergies or special needs that we should be aware of, and then make sure you know how to get to the class your child is attending.


Once in class your child will have the opportunity to worship and learn about the good news of Jesus Christ alongside other children and an amazing group of Kid's Ministry volunteers. All of our teachers and helpers undergo a background check. They each have a heart to love, serve, and make disciples of our children. The curriculum that we use dives deep into the whole of scripture, highlighting the Gospel as it is revealed throughout scripture. Our curriculum works its way through the entire bible every two years. So our 5th graders that started in Kindergarten have already been through the bible three times. Whether it's singing, playing, watching, listening, or working on a craft it is our sincere desire that each of our kids feels loved, seen, has fun, and ultimately comes to understand and love Jesus in our classes.

Pick Up

After service head back to the class where you dropped your child off and show your barcode to pick up your child. They will have a handout and anything else they worked on that morning. As a parent we would encourage you to engage your child by asking what they learned. While we want to provide as much as we can on Sunday Mornings we deeply desire that it would be a conversation starter for your own discipleship conversations throughout the week.
