Kidz Church (Nursery to 6th grade)
Every Sunday during the 2nd service (11:00am to 12:15pm) children from Nursery to 6th grade gather together in age-appropriate classrooms with a trained adult volunteer. Our aim is for the children to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Here the children will learn how they are created by God--that they are loved and accepted for who they are. They will find answers to their questions through the teaching of the Bible.
AFMC Youth Group (6th-12th grade)
Come join us for our church's youth group! Our youth group is called B.A.S.I.C. which stands for Brothers and Sisters in Christ. This is where middle school and high school students can come together as one unified body of Christ. Our program offers Sunday School gatherings during Sunday Services (11am) and Saturday youth group (7:30pm) at church. We also do fun retreats and events such as Midwinter, camp, bowling, ice skating, laser tag, and more!
