Children

 

We love children at APC!

Our Children’s Ministry team considers it a joy to partner with families whose children are growing in faith. We offer nursery care, Sunday School, special events and fun activities to make all children (babies through 5th grade) feel at home in our church family.

If you have any questions, please contact Director of Children’s Ministry Kristin Hicks.

Safety

At APC, we create a safe and secure environment for each child. All leaders and volunteers complete a mandatory child safety training that includes a background check. We also have a secure check-in and check-out system each Sunday.
