KIDS Church is a high energy, dynamic, modern way of worship for kids 1st through 6th grade, which starts at 11:00 in the mini gym. Kids will learn to encounter God in a real and powerful way. Each thought provoking lesson will teach kids how to apply God's Word in their own lives, both at church and at home. During every session kids will be involved in activities in which they can practice what they have learned. CLICK HERE for kids in action!!!

LiL KIDS Church
There are two LIL’ KIDS Church programs at ABT which are specifically designed for 4 and 5 year olds in mind. Our goal is to educate these boys and girls about the Bible and about Jesus Christ. We do this through music, games, Bible lessons, and puppets in hopes that as they grow their heart’s desire will be to receive Christ as their personal Savior. Come check us out this Sunday at 11:00 a.m.
Bus Ministry Each Sunday morning our fleet of fifteen buses give rides to children and adults by picking them up from their homes and bringing them to our church services. Kids are involved in a high energy dynamic modern way of worship and then break out into smaller groups of more one-on-one Bible centered teaching time. Led by Pastor Chris Carter

One word explains KIDS Camp…Awesome!!!
Counselors are thrilled at the possibility of discipleship. The kids are eager to learn about God, excited about making new friends, and willing to brave the cold Alaska waters at the lake!
How and what we teach connects with the kids usually resulting in dynamic spiritual decisions for Jesus Christ.
Winter Camp is a fun mix of outdoor and indoor activities much like summer camp, but much colder! Each day includes cabin group activities, all camp events, and campfires and of course lots of sledding!! If your child loves being outdoors, having fun and playing with other kids, this IS the place to be.
Each year we do 2-3 KIDS Movie nights for the community. This is a free event for families and kids of all ages. We provide corn dogs, popcorn, and a wholesome movie with a positive message. Our average attendance is between 400-500 kids and adults. This is a great way for families to spend time together at an event that’s at no cost to you. Look and listen for our next KIDS Movie night through the Sunday Morning News and our radio stations and come be part of this great family activity!
