Who We Are

The children's ministry at Allisonville is a growing, love-centered ministry. We offer programming for kids from birth through fifth grade where we hope all kids know that they are loved and welcomed, no matter what. If you are interested in knowing more about our children's ministry, please reach out to our Associate Minister, Rev. Josh Jackson, at jjackson@allisonville.org.

Updates

quest: A Journey of Faith

 An email went out to our families with kids in 5th grade and below with information about quest: A Journey of Faith. quest is a new ministry of the Region that supports and empowers families to talk about faith at home. It is a program made up of 3-month cycles, with each cycle focusing on a different part of the Fruit of the Spirit. ACC is one of the pilot congregations for the quest ministry, and registration is open! If you would like to sign your family up, please click the link below. quest is geared toward kids ages 4-11 (with some wiggle room). If you have any questions, reach out to Josh or to Rev. Anita Cobb at anita@indianadisciples.org.

Blessing of the Backpacks

School is coming up fast! As we get ready for another year, we will do our annual Blessing of the Backpacks service on Sunday, August 4 in both services. Whether you are a student, teacher, administrator, or other support staff for a school, you are invited to bring your backpack (or briefcase, tote bag, etc.) for a blessing and a gift for the school year. Reach out to Josh with any questions!

Graduate Recognition Sunday

On Sunday, August 11, we will recognize all of our graduates from the class of 2024. If you (or your child) graduated this year, please plan on being there that Sunday in both services where all of our seniors and graduates will be recognized, receive a gift, and get a blessing from the congregation. Talk to Josh if you have any questions.

Fall is coming, which means our regular programming is coming back! Our first Pizza & Playground of the school year will be on August 11 at 12:00pm.

Invite your friends!
