Welcome to the home of Pleasant Valley North’s Children’s Ministry. In the Kids Zone, children are taught to love Jesus through four major areas. These are evangelism, discipleship, missional mindset, and fellowship. It is important that each child grow and leave the Children’s Ministry having developed a relationship with Christ while learning to serve others. The biblical theme for the ministry is:
This mission is fulfilled through the programs listed below that promote engagement, biblical teaching, and fun. For more info on each sub-ministry.
Train up a child in the way he should go:
And when he is old, he will not depart from it.
This wonderful ministry for children age 3 through 6th grade is really growing. The children learn Bible verses each week while enjoying games and fellowship. It provides a solid foundation for moral and spiritual development. Our AWANA program meets on Wednesday nights from 6:15 - 7:30 pm through the academic year. The first Wednesday night of each month is a special event night. Children will have the opportunity to dress or participate in a theme such as pajama or crazy hair night. Children are awarded points each week for bringing their Bible, handbook, and completing sections in their books. These points are redeemed twice a year in the AWANA stores for toys and prizes.
This ministry's goal is to promote scriptural understanding and God's truths through an environment that is relaxed and fun. While nearly 2/3 of the night is spent in Bible learning and study, children have the opportunity to experience recreation and fellowship.
AWANA is divided into "clubs" based on age and/or grade:
CUBBIES - 3 year olds - PreK
SPAKRS - Kindergarten - 2nd Grade
T&T - 3rd-4th Grade
T&T Preteen - 5th-6th Grade
Additionally, a leadership program is available for those in 7th-12th grades who have a leadership gift set, enjoy guiding younger kids in AWANA, and work through an independent curriculum of daily devotions and verse memorization.
We invite your child to become an AWANA clubber. Registration is open year-round. Clubbers may sign up at the beginning of each night, or parents may visit the church office during normal business hours Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 4:30 pm.

Just before the sermon on Sunday mornings, children are invited to Children's Church. Dedicated adult and youth teachers lead this special time of worship for children. In Children's Church, kids learn biblical truths through lessons, games, arts and crafts, and technology. For both services, one group is offered for 4-year-olds to 3rd graders.
If you are new, visit the Children's Ministry Check Point Desk at the Children's Wing entrance to learn more.
