- Covid-19 has significantly impacted the way Apopka Seventh Day Adventist Church Children’s Ministries operate.
- However, Apopka Children’s Ministries will continue to be a place for children to experience God, and thrive spiritually.
- The Apopka Children’s Ministries staff love partnering with parents to nurture children to become more, and more like Jesus.
Children are incredibly important to us and we strive to do everything possible to promote their wellbeing and development. The Children’s Ministries Department develops relevant age-appropriate resources to share the Bible with children from birth to the age of fourteen. As they learn from the Bible, children are often the first to embrace the love of Jesus and want to share it with others. The Children’s Ministries Department helps nurture the spiritual growth of children and trains them as young leaders.
