What Is ParentServe?

ParentServe is a rotation of parents or guardians who serve in Abundant Life Kids Early Years Ministry (8 weeks – 4 years old). Through ParentServe, parents or guardians of children 8 weeks to 4 years old serve in our early-year classrooms one service, one Sunday, every 8 weeks.

Why ParentServe?

We highly value the children God has entrusted to our care
and nurturing. We want Abundant Life Kids’ ministry to be
God-honoring and reflect the value He places on His children.
We believe putting parents in classrooms to actively participate
in the ministry of children honors God, is best for our children,
and is best for the parent(s).  

We know when parents actively participate in their child’s faith
journey, the planted seeds in their lives begin to bloom.
