CHILDREN

Children's Ministry

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalms 127:3
 
We know from scripture that kids hold a special place in God’s heart, and they do in ours, too! That’s why we take steps to ensure a safe and secure environment for our Children’s ministry, one where they can have fun just being kids while learning about God’s love for them, and you can enjoy the service without the distraction of wondering if they’re OK. All of our ministry workers are background-checked annually and will only discuss age-appropriate, Bible-based topics with their classes.
 

AWANA

Awana

Awana is an international children’s ministry whose mission is to equip leaders to reach kids with the gospel and to engage them in lifelong discipleship. The name Awana is an acronym derived from “Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed” as taken from 2 Timothy 2:15.
 
Awana is held at KABC each Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00 in the Cheever Family Life Center concurrent with the public school year. Registration is required; ages 2 years through 8th grade.
 

AMERICAN HERITAGE GIRLS

The American Heritage Girls program pursues a mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. It’s a unique opportunity for girls to grow in their faith, life skills, character development, and family involvement. As girls progress through the program, they’re introduced to new skills, experiences (including outdoor adventures), leadership positions, and opportunities to grow closer to the Lord.
 
AHG is open to all biological girls age 5-18 of any color, race, national origin and socioeconomic status who agree to live according to the standards of the AHG Oath and AHG Creed.
AHG Troop FL2301 Meets at KABC on Monday afternoons.  Send an email to ahgfl2031@gmail.com for more information.

ELEVATE

Let’s face it – the path of a teen in today’s world can be pretty dicey. Decisions can be hard and often the answers they get don’t have their best interests at heart. KABC recognizes this struggle and provides the ELEVATE student ministry as a way to rally around our teens, instill in them a Christ-centered perspective, and equip them to answer the challenges to their faith that they will inevitably encounter. Students have the opportunity to attend one week of camp in the summer at Word of Life in Hudson, FL along with a variety of engaging weekend activities throughout the year.

AMPLIFY

We recognize that not everyone is at the family-rearing stage in their walk with the Savior. Amplify is the singles and college-age ministry at KABC, and brings together a generation of diverse young adults who strive to keep the faith and live in purity until the Lord ushers them to that stage. Focus is placed on meeting the cultural challenges of the day and standing in support of one another through those challenges.

JESUS’ HEART CHURCH

Jesus Heart Youth Convention 2019
KABC is proud to be the home of Jesus’ Heart Church for all Arabs. Led by Pastor Magdy Morgan, these ministries are on mission to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to all the men, women, and youth of the Arabic-speaking community in the surrounding area. Because there are so few ministries like them, their congregation gathers members from far beyond Brandon and Hillsborough County, as far Sarasota, Bradenton, Palmetto, Lakeland, and Plant City.

KING’S MEN

True manhood begins with a personal relationship with Christ and a pursuit to be like Him. We know that we won’t always hit the mark while we’re still under the influence of sin in this life, but in those times that we fail, the King’s Men ministry hopes to spiritually uplift and support the men of the church. We take to heart God’s intent found in Proverbs 27:17 as we seek to inspire each other to live out what scripture tells us about our roles as men in the church, in our families, and in our world.

GLOW

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
 
GLOW Women’s Ministry (Godly Lives Offered Willingly) is inspiring and discipling women to walk boldly with Christ, allowing His life in us to shine, transform, and bring hope to those around us. Whatever season she’s in, a woman longs for meaningful connections, spiritual nurturing, and a purpose to fulfill. KABC welcomes all women in every season of life to participate in Bible studies, outings, outreach opportunities, and special events with this beautiful sisterhood of fellowship.

PRIMETIMERS

Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness. Proverbs 16:31
 
KABC is a multi-generational congregation, and the seniors of our PrimeTimers ministry are the heartbeat of our church. As one of the most active groups in our body, they know that the Lord’s work continues for all of us, and lovingly contribute their hard-earned wisdom and experience to the evangelism and discipleship efforts of the church overall. There is no requirement for participation in PrimeTimers; just come as you age!

WALK THRU BETHLEHEM

KABC is proud to produce its 33rd annual Walk Thru Bethlehem, a living recreation of the life and times of those who went to be taxed as subjects of Caesar Augustus and are spoken of in the biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ. Using the help of over 300 volunteers and 20,000 square feet of recreated city, we take the guests of Walk Thru Bethlehem on a 30-minute guided tour through the city and introduce them to the sorts of citizens (actors) that one might have encountered during that time – carpenters, wool dyers, temple scribes, innkeepers, etc – and at the end, an exhausted couple who has no choice but to see their child born in the humility of a manger.
