Explore the ministry opportunities for your children at AAEC
At AAEC our children (Ages newborn to 12) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. From newborns to 24 months, we offer a nursery and toddler during our worships services and events. All other children ages 3-12 attend our AAEC Friday School program!
Here's what to expect when visiting AAEC Friday School for the first time:
First, everything begins at a place we call the Youth Building. Anyone of our staff will be happy to show you where this is, or you can check out this video. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
Before Service: You can bring your child to the check-in station in the Youth Building. Please aim to have your child check in by no later than 15 minutes prior to Friday School (8:45am and 10:45am), as this will allow them to enjoy the entire worship experience. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you can collect your child at the same place you checked in.
During Friday services (9am-10:30am, 11am-12:30pm), a nursing room is reserved exclusively for mother's infants to enjoy the services in a more private and quiet environment. The service is streamed live to this room.
