AR Kids (Arapaho Road Kids) is the name of the children’s ministry at Arapaho Road Baptist Church. AR Kids exists to glorify God by helping parents and kids live…In community…On mission. We partner with parents in sowing seeds of God’s truth into the heart of every child so that he/she will know Jesus Christ as his/her Savior, loving and serving Him with his/her whole life.   We offer AR Kids on Sunday mornings, Awana, activities on Wednesday evenings, summer activities that include camps and Vacation Bible School, and other special events to help children learn about Christ and have fun with other children.  Please look through our pages and come for a visit.  Welcome Centers on Sunday mornings are in the Worship Center, Family Life Center & Children's Building and on Wednesday nights in the Children's Building.  We love meeting families!  If you have any questions, click on the staff button above for information on how to contact us.

New Believer's Class
The Children’s Ministry is committed to helping each child learn about God’s love and know Jesus as his/her personal savior. Children who have questions about accepting Christ or would like to be assured of his/her decision, may attend the New Believer’s class which is taught on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings.

Parent Commitment/Child Dedication
Parent Commitment/Child Dedication is a time to introduce a child to the church family and have a time of commitment and dedication to the Lord. By doing this, we are honoring God’s plan and purpose to work together in raising a child to know God through prayer and teaching so he/she can grow in his/her personal relationship to God, learn to serve others, as well as share his/her faith. This special commitment can be held during any of the morning worship services.

If interested in the New Believer's Class or Parent/Child Dedication, please contact the children's ministry at arkids@arapahoroad.org or 972-495-2223 x 224.
