Safe and fun
To help keep kids healthy we are:
- Requiring masks for our serve team and kids ages 2+.
- Practicing physical distancing in our classrooms when possible.
- Regularly using hand sanitizer.
- Requiring parents to keep kids at home if sick.
- 5. Sanitizing classrooms and toys after each service.
Check-in: Classroom doors open 10 minutes before the service.
If you are new, please stop at ekids central by the front doors to register your children. Our check-in team will help you check-in, print off your child's name tag and pick up tag, and then walk you to the correct classrooms.
If you have little ones who need to stay with you, a Parent's Room with service stream is located next to the nursery for your convenience.
Nursery Program: Birth - 23 months
A place where babies are lovingly cared for as they learn about God and the church.
Early Childhood Program: Age 2 - Kindergarten
Each Sunday is filled with fun songs, exciting story videos, interactive activities, and tasty snacks that all point to the weekly Bible truth.
Elementary Program: Grades 1-4
Students will learn and understand how God can be a part of their lives through engaging music, meaningful Bible teaching, and interactive small groups.
Preteen Program: Grades 5-6
Each Sunday begins with a time for connecting through games followed by participating as a class in the main service worship. Students are then introduced to the daily Bible topic and split into small groups for meaningful discussion and prayer.
*During summer and on holiday Sundays, preteens are part of the elementary program.*
Check-out: Show your pick-up tag to check your child out. Preteens are dismissed 5 minutes after the main service concludes.
Check out your child's take-home sheet each week for ideas on how to guide discussions and devotionals at home that reinforce Sunday morning learning.
To help encourage active Bible learning, elementary and preteen students have an opportunity to earn ekids' bucks for coming to church, bringing their Bibles, memorizing verses, and participation. Following ekids' church, students can use their ekids' bucks at our ekids store.
Generosity is an attitude that can lead your entire life. Each year the Ellerslie kids choose projects to give towards. More information about the current project can be found in our monthly parent email. Help your children develop a regular habit of giving by dropping off coins and cash in one of our 3 giving boxes on Sundays (by room 227, 143, and nursery).
