MID WEEK PROGRAMING

Midweek is on a summer break after May 11th.

FALL KICKOFF IS SEPTEMBER 14TH!

AR Kids Midweek is all about creating healthy relationships between children and their small group leaders and growing in their knowledge and relationship with Jesus. Each week, we’ll enjoy large group time with worship, games, and a lesson, small group time that will focus on application, and of course fun activities in the gym. This program is open to birth-5th graders. We meet Wednesday nights from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. The Midweek Calendar for 2022-2023 is coming soon!

This week we are focusing on...

How many ways can you send a message? There are so many unique ways! Special deliveries are the best but even better are the messages found in each package. This month, we are going to look at the most important message that was ever sent out and how we are meant to be the ones delivering it. Kids are God’s messengers that can share the stories of God’s miracles and help. Get kids involved in helping God’s message go everywhere because God delivers everyone!

Barnabas Program

Autumn Ridge offers a Special Needs classroom during the 10:00 am service on Sundays. Each student is greeted with a welcoming, colorful, and thoughtfully arranged classroom. A classroom that is conveniently located in the CENTER Wing, where we are so fortunate to have a handicapped-accessible entrance, our own dedicated parking places, handicapped-accessible bathroom facilities, and access to the gym with adaptive equipment and room to spread out. Our Barnabas room is set up to be a self-contained classroom for children and teens ages 5-18+ who have a developmental or cognitive delay and/or medical condition that prevents them from being in the general classroom. The room is staffed with trained volunteers who are able to care for and support these children, while teaching and modeling the love of Jesus Christ. 

If you have a child with special needs, I invite you to visit our classroom and experience it first-hand. If you know of a family who would be interested in this ministry, I encourage you to invite them to Autumn Ridge. If you feel a stirring in your own heart and would like to be a part of this exciting ministry, please sign up at this link:
