CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

Infants - 6th grade

Our Philosophy

We believe that each child is a gift from God. We desire them to know church as a place where people are filled with God’s love and goodness. We desire them to grow like an unwavering tree with roots deep into God’s word. A tree whose branches reach up to worship and whose fruit consists of obedience, loyalty, a hunger to love God, and a passion to share the good news of Jesus with their world. Deuteronomy 6:5, Psalm 119:11.

Children’s Pastor Lilly Wilson

I have a life of peace and joy in Jesus. This blessing has come to me as a result of faithful Christians who were obedient to God and asked my parents if it would be all right to bring me to Sunday school.
I am thankful for my Sunday school teachers, SS bus drivers, and so many other good Christian folks that loved me and taught me of the light of Jesus and his peace that passes all understanding.
I am a 1980 graduate from Faith Bible college international in Charleston, Maine. I have a bachelors degree in theology.
In 1980 I moved to Indianapolis Indiana and served at Teen Challenge as a Bible teacher, youth counselor and director of their inner-city ghetto Sunday school.
While there I met my husband Bruce Wilson who also served there. We married in 1982.
We then moved to Cleveland Tennessee for him to attend Lee Bible college and me to study nursing.
We served on Pala Indian Reservation, California 1991-1998 in a Mission Church and Clinic.
We served at Kannapolis Church of God 1998-2001
We have been at AFA since June 2001 and served under the 2 previous Children’s Pastors, and became Children’s Pastor in 2012.
