Mission & Purpose of Christian Education @ ACC
The C.E.L.T (Christian Education Leadership Team) promotes four core purposes that make up Christian religious education at Affton Christian Church:
- We educate to acknowledge our relationship/covenant with God.
- We understand that we learn more through ‘open, active theological discussion’ than ‘lecture-based Sunday school teaching’.
- We want Biblical engagement that instructs us in how to live our contemporary lives, tackling both the tough, rarely-preached texts and the Biblical stories we know well.
- We participate in revitalizing the creative vision of Christian religious education in our congregation and the wider community.

Kid’s Konnection(10:15) – Meets in Worship & Wonder Room
Children begin in worship with their parents until the Children’s Chat. Your child can participate in Children’s Chat and Kids’ Konnection if they would like, but it is not required. Children return to worship at the beginning of Communion so they may partake of communion at the consent of their parents.
All of our Leaders and Helpers for Kids’ Konnection are Safe Church trained as to provide a safe environment for your children to learn about God while doing age-appropriate, creative lessons.
