We care about your kids! Our children’s ministry is designed to partner with families in providing your kids with a solid foundation of biblical knowledge, connections with other families, and opportunities to help others. Together we want to help children discover and embrace a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. All of our activities are age-appropriate, engaging, safe, and FUN!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your child’s safety is our top priority. Whether you are a first-time guest or a regular attendee, your child will be in the care of an adult at all times.
Each child at check-in will receive an ID sticker with a corresponding claim ticket for the parent that the child must wear before getting dropped off in a classroom. If there is ever a situation where a child needs the special care of Mom or Dad, you’ll receive a text message to go to the check-in area. Additionally, at pick up, your claim ticket must correspond with the child’s ID sticker given at drop-off.
Under no circumstance is a child released to an adult without proper identification.
Any person who works with kids will be screened and interviewed prior to direct contact with children. This precautionary measure is for the protection of our children and for the ease and comfort of our parents.
All volunteers have certain, regimented guidelines to practice when dealing with specific age groups, dealing with areas of being alone with children, and when to notify parents in service.
EP LITTLES (6wks-4yrs)
EP Littles is our ministry for children from 6weeks to 4 years of age. We believe that it is our responsibility to introduce our Littles to their Heavenly Father. We do so by teaching them the following truths:
-See God for who He is
-See themselves the way God sees them
-Love others the way God does
EP JR. (K-1st)
Age-appropriate activities, creative lessons, music and snacks are provided to help children get a clear first impression of their loving heavenly Father. We want our preschool children to discover:
-God made them
-God loves them
-Jesus wants to be their friend forever
EP KIDS (2nd-5th):
We want to help your kids own their faith and build a firm foundation of biblical knowledge. We show them that the Bible is the source of wisdom and truth and how that applies to their daily lives. The three core truths we want every child to know are:
-I can trust God no matter what
-I need to make the wise choice
-I should treat others the way I want to be treated
