a GROWING TREND in churches
In March of 2010 , The Kreek Kids team, along with insights from families and AC3 leadership, officially became a co-op ministry. Co-op children ministries are currently the growing trend among churches for several reasons: Churches realize parents are the most influential people in their children's lives. Children’s ministry teams understand that they can no longer effectively do children’s ministry or provide safe staffing ratios without the support of parent involvement and support.
Parents are called to be part of the faith training process of their children (Proverbs 22:6, Psalm 78:1-8, Deut. 6:1-9, Deut. 11) so churches are taking active steps to partner with parents in their legacy creation efforts. At AC3, parents along with other caring adults serve in our co-op format just 1-2 hours monthly, keeping in mind individual passions and talents. There are a variety of ways parents and others can serve that will fit their own individual giftedness; inside and outside the classroom.
