Mission

     Our vision for KidsLife is to be one link in the chain of the spiritual lives of your children. Kids Life is available for children ages infant to 12 years old from 10:00 through the end of service. During our time together, we strive to teach your children from the Bible, sing songs, do crafts, have fun, and make new friends.

     We are dedicated to the safety of all children, so our workers are all background checked and have been through Safety Training. We have policies in place to do our best to ensure their safety. For more information concerning KidsLife, please call 520-333-5788 or email Jessica at jessica@authenticlifeaz.com

     Did you know the 120 minutes spent in church each week represents 1.2% of your child's time. The other 9,960 minutes of each week are not forgotten, at ALC we want to provide you the resources to continue you child's spiritual growth, maturity and education.   

Resources

One of the frequent questions we get, is what can I do as a parent to encourage the spiritual growth of my kids? This can be an intimidating subject for many people and we want to offer some help. There are several different ways. 

  • Read the Bible to your kids. 2 Tim 3:16 Tells us "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness". Big or little, old or young reading through the Bible as a family will be rewarding and fun. We understand a 2 year old will not sit through 9 chapters of names in the Old Testament but a good story will capture even the shortest attention span. Below are a few we can recommend. 

 

 

  • Walk through a Catechism. For hundreds of years parents, teachers, and pastors have used the catechisms question and answer set up as a way to teach Christian doctrine. The world will always attack our faith, the catechism is an excellent way to prepare our children to be "ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you." (1 Pet 3:15) Here are a couple examples to point you in the right direction.

  • Start the day with a devotional and prayer as a family. There is no better way to start a morning than to spend a few minutes discussing God and praying for his guidance. Your kids will value what they see you valuing and this is an wonderful way to show them what is important. For a huge seletion of bible reading plans and devtionals check out youversion.com
