    Sundays  |  9:00 AM  | The Grove

    Each week, our preschoolers and children have the opportunity to learn about Jesus and the stories from the Bible. Classes are age-appropriate, provide creative, interactive elements in a small groups setting, and are led by caring, committed leaders. All of these leaders have passed background checks and love working with kids.

  • GroveKids K-5th Grade

    Sundays  |  10:30 AM  |  The Grove

    GroveKids is a multi-sensory learning environment where children can experience games, activities, and worship as they study God’s Word together.

  • Our Mission

    Children are very important to Jesus, and He invites every one of them to build a lifelong relationship with Him. For this reason, we take our responsibility very seriously to point kids toward Jesus. That starts with a safe, fun, and creative environment, led by equipped leaders who are passionate about loving and caring for kids.

  • Our Vision

    As kids grow, from babies to teenagers, their understanding of who God is changes as well. We exist to introduce kids to Jesus and help them understand that He’s created them with a unique identity and significant purpose. We consider it a privilege to partner with parents and families to create conversations and provide resources that encourage spiritual growth throughout the week.

  • Parent Policies & Guidelines

    Parents, please take a minute to familiarize yourselves with the Policies for The Grove. We will work together to keep our children healthy during the winter months. The Preschool/Children’s Ministry of The Church at Avenue South seeks to provide the best possible learning environment for children. It is our commitment to teach children the Biblical message of God, Jesus, the Bible and the Church. We want to make sure each child will hear the message using age appropriate activities and resources. Our calling is to reach out to parents and partner with them in raising children who know and love Jesus.
