Welcome to Agapé Kids
Visiting a church for the first time can be a little scary for a child. We will make every effort to help your child feel safe and welcome while they are with us. Please speak to one of our friendly volunteers at the children’s welcome desk. They will assist you in getting your children into their appropriate classes and answer any questions you or your child may have. We also have volunteer staff in our nurseries to assist you with check-in and answer questions.
Whether you have an infant or a toddler, rest assured that we have a capable staff trained in the care of your little ones. At Agapé, the safety of your children is very important to us. Every volunteer has gone through a background check and we make every effort to provide a safe, clean and sanitized environment.
The Nurseries and preschools are available from 9:45 am to 11:45 am during our Sunday morning services. The nurseries are also available during our women’s AM Bible study and by request. (please contact the children’s ministry director to schedule these rooms).
Our Nurseries were specifically made for children, infant to toddler. The rooms are designed to be interactive and fun, but also practical. From our space for nursing mothers to well organized play areas, we feel confident in taking care of the needs of little ones.

~Kindergarten – 5th Grade~
Agapé Kids is for children kindergarten through 5th grade. Agapé Kids meet on Sunday mornings 10:30-11:30am and 10:00-11:30 on the last Sunday of the month. Kids participate in large group interactive Bible lessons that include
music, games, and life application skits. They experience a unique cool theme every 8 weeks!
Agapé Kids Small Groups are a great place for kids to bring their friends. In small groups kids can build relationships with others their age and have one-on-one contact with a caring adult volunteer who will encourage them each week to live God’s way.
Club 609 is our mid-week program for kids 2nd grade through 5th grade. Club 609 meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00 in the Agapé Kids large group room. Besides hanging out with friends to worship and play games, the 609 club will be taking kids through the Gospel Project. Which is a special
children’s curriculum that will take your kids through the books of the Bible
starting in Genesis.
