Nothing in life is more worthwhile than the investment we make in our children’s spiritual lives.
We disciple hundreds of children every single week through AdventureLand, Awana, DueNorth and Kid’s Club.

Stay informed about what’s going on for kids at ChangePoint!
AdventureLand (birth-5th grade)
During our Sunday morning services, we offer AdventureLand for children from birth through 5th grade. AdventureLand uses a hiking metaphor to teach kids what it means to follow Jesus. In the H.I.K.E.R. Guide, kids follow the adventures of Shadrack Shrew as they learn a value-driven framework for spiritual formation.
Kids earn Mountain Money and H.I.K.E.R. awards, receive loads of encouragement from their leaders, and make lots of new friends. Your children will gain confidence to spend time with God, navigate His word, and partner with others on their very own spiritual adventure.
Sunday mornings at 9:30am and 11:30am
AWANA (birth-8th grade)
During the school year, we offer Awana in place of AdventureLand for children from birth-8th grade at our Sunday evening service. Awana offers a fun, proven approach for early evangelism and deep discipleship.
Scripture-based programs and exciting games promote Bible literacy and help kids develop lifelong faith in Christ. In Awana, kids are placed on teams for the whole school year and enjoy friendly competition within our Awana club and with other clubs from across Alaska. Through the Awana program, kids internalize more than 700 Bible verses that will be with them for a lifetime.
Sunday Evenings 6:00 PM-7:30 PM September 8, 2019 through May 3, 2020.
NOTE: There will be no AWANA April 12, 2020
DueNorth (6th grade)
DueNorth is a midweek program that takes place during the school year and is designed specifically for 6th grade students. 6th grade is a pivotal moment in the lives of young people. The following year marks the beginning of middle school and the changes of adolescence. DueNorth prepares students to avoid common pitfalls, and understand the world around them through a biblical world view. Students get connected with a small group coach, build healthy relationships as they prepare for adolescence and beyond.
Wednesdays 6:30pm – 8:30pm
KidsClub (birth-12 yrs. old)
KidsClub is a support ministry for adult training opportunities & events throughout the week. KidsClub provides a safe, fun learning environment for your children from birth through 12-years-old while you’re growing deeper in your faith. It is also an opportunity for us to partner with you in your child’s spiritual growth and discipleship. KidsClub includes a full lesson and activities for every child, every time.
For most events there is a small fee for the use of KidsClub. To ensure a quality experience, we require prior registration for all children in KidsClub. You can register your children at the same time you register for your event and the prices will be listed in the event information. We ask that no food or gum be brought into KidsClub, due to allergies.
KidsClub is available for children birth-5 yrs old during the summer for our 6:00 PM service (June-August).
If you have any questions about KidsClub please contact Vanessa Pedraza.
If you are a first time mom or a “seasoned” mom, we want to extend a very warm welcome to you. We are confident that as you become more involved in our group, you will be better equipped to face the challenges that motherhood has to offer.
We know we mother better together, so ALL moms are welcome at MOPS. From the time you get pregnant or foster/adopt our doors are open. You do not need to be a churchgoer or from a specific denomination to join our MOPS groups. We welcome women from all faith or non-faith backgrounds and beliefs. The vision of MOPS is to see no mom alone – because better moms make a better world.
Our hope is that you will find encouragement, support, relevant teaching, and opportunities to develop relationships with other women who are in your same season of life.
WHO: We offer traditional MOPS (for moms with children 0-Kindergarten), MOMSnext (for moms of grade School age children), teenMOPS (for young moms who are under age 21), and MOPSmentors (for those who have grown children).

- Mornings 10AM-12PM
- Evenings 6:30PM-8:00 PM (Evenings beginning in Sept.)

Volunteer with our Family Ministries
Life in Christ for the next generation is our vision and mission in AdventureLand for birth through 6th grade, and that is accomplished as we invest in, love on, pour into and pray for children each week. Every believer is vital to the work and worship that takes place in the church. The church is not a building; WE are the church! So join us in being the church as we use the gifts, skills and interests God has given each of us to serve the youngest at Changepoint.
By saying yes to volunteering, you are saying yes to something much bigger:
· You are serving others
· You’re giving your life away
· You become part of community
· You discover how God has wired you
· You use the unique gifts God has blessed you with
· You take part in expanding the Kingdom of God
· You are making an eternal impact
· You make this big church small
· You become a disciplemaker
· You Glorify our God
· Your life will never be the same again
Our “VIP” volunteers are asked to serve one service, every week or every other week. Children under 12 can serve in preschool or nursery, as long as a parent serves with them.
