Avalon Kids is about helping kids know God, love God, know people, and love people. This is our Greatest Commandment!

First Service (9:00)

During first Service, we offer a few large group environments for our kids. K-5th grade begins with worship in the auxiliary gym followed by a time to unpack our Element of the Month through God's Word. Pre-K has their large group time in the Barn for all kids 3 - 5 years old. Our nursery provides care for babies through 2 year olds during this time. 

Second Service (10:30)

Each Sunday during 2nd service, we offer small group classes for 2 yrs old through 5th grade. We also have a nursery for children under 2. This is a great way to invite kids into the great stories in the Bible as we have smaller learning environments. 

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers LOVE your children! They go through training and background checks before they can become a part of our service team. Are you interested in serving? Contact Cortney Hogan at chogan@avalonmc.com or by calling the church office at 260-747-1531.  

Our Curriculum

In January 2016, we started a curriculum called D6. You can find more information on this curriculum by visiting their website at d6family.com. It is based on Deuteronomy 6 which teaches about the importance of having family faith conversations. While we desire to teach children about Jesus, we also want parents to continue those conversations at home with their children. D6 provides resources for parents to continue those conversations through HOME Connections, Take and Talk Sheets, and even curriculum designed for audiences 2 years old through senior adults. We can't wait to continue growing in Christ through the D6 Curriculum!
