At Antioch, we desire to teach our children the Word of God and prepare their hearts to love King Jesus. While we want them to have fun, we also want the Spirit of God to awaken them, transform them, and equip them. We do not coerce “decisions” or simply entertain them with games. No, we seek to give them a robust, theological foundation upon which they are able to build a life-long walk of faith. Moreover, we believe that parents should be equipped with the tools and resources necessary to train and shepherd their children (Eph 6:1-4). Therefore, we don’t view youth ministry as a means to attract a crowd, rather we see it as an opportunity to edify families by providing them resources and encouraging their faith.
What does Covenant Kids look like?
- Wednesday Night: Wednesday nights is the core of our Covenant Kids program. Mrs. Paula & Mr. Buzz teach the kids by going through The Gospel Project curriculum and the New City Catechism. In addition, the kids do a variety of events throughout the year, including dramas and crafts.
- VBS: Each summer, Antioch hosts a Vacation Bible School program. The dates can be accessed on our events page. As VBS draws near, we will also create an announcement page online.
- Nursery Care is provided for children 1-4 during the service. This is completely optional and many parents choose to keep their kids with them.
- Engagement: We encourage families to participate in worship together. To that end, we have provided these templates for little ones to learn how to take notes during the sermon. These templates are designed for kids of all ages. These have been graciously given to us by David C. Woodard, Pastor of Mt. Juliet Baptist Church.
