The ARC Children's Ministry

Jesus loves ARC Kids, and so do we!


Children's Worship, Preschool, and Nursery Care

On Sunday mornings during our 9 and 11am worship service, your K-5th grade child will gather for ARC Sunday School and Children's Worship and celebrate the joy of the Lord! ARC kids experience God's words and love through a dynamic, interactive worship experience, which includes music and movement, scriptures, videos, prayer, and activities. Currently all grades K-5 are meeting in Ruth Hall; you can be directed there when you enter the Worship Center.

Our youngest disciples - infants, toddlers and preschool age - are welcome in a more intimate classroom or nursery environment during both the 9 and 11am worship services, where they learn about God's love for them through caring volunteers and age-appropriate activities. Nursery and preschool classrooms are located in the hallway between the Great Room and Ruth Hall; you can be directed there when you enter the Worship Center.

During COVID times, masks are required for those aged 2 and over who are participating in or leading our children's activities on Sunday mornings, or anyone entering our children's areas.

Join us for Worship

Vacation Bible School

Go off-road for a Monumental adventure through the colorful canyons and sunbaked trails of the southwest. By exploring God’s awesomeness, kids form a rock-solid faith for the road ahead.

Each day at Monumental VBS, kids discover the vastness of God's love through station rotations that reinforce Bible Points and point kids' eyes up to a loving, powerful God who is bigger than... well, anything! Stations include Sing and Play Celebration, Imagination Station, KidVid Cinema, Red Rock Rec, Bible Adventures, and Oasis Tastes snacks. And we'll have our Bible Buddies characters to guide us through the week!

5th Grade Bible Group

Your 5th grader is ready to explore their faith more on their own, and this class will help them get a taste of Middle School Youth, get to know the Middle School youth leaders, and learn about the Bible. The class meets January through May each year, and the students receive Bibles at the end!
