ECL Kids exists to glorify God and make disciples by journeying together in God’s ongoing rescue of the oppressed in developmentally appropriate ways. We are an intergenerational church. We celebrate and desire all ages to participate together in community, communion and serving. We will actively pursue God’s love for us, his people and the world.
What age do you have care for?
Ecclesia believes that all children are a part of the church family. We care for each child and family in their faith journey. During Sunday services we have programs for birth-4th grade.
Where do I bring my kids upon arrival?
Our kids area is to the right of the entrance. You may check your Babies + Toddlers in upon arrival to the building at the Kids Welcome Table. Preschool and up join our community in our singing and announcements at the beginning of the service. Kids will be dismissed after announcements. Our volunteer staff will be by the door ready to take ECL Kids back to their rooms.
How do I check my kids in and out?
We care deeply about the safety of your children. We have a parent form to fill out upon your first visit. You will find these forms at the ECL Kids Welcome Table in the entrance of the church. When you arrive at church you can fill out the form and check in your child right at the same time. Babies + Toddlers you can check in at their room. PreSchool- 4th grade you can check in at the welcome table. We return our Elementary Kids to the Sunday Service for communion, parents are responsible for looking for their kids upon entrance to the worship gathering. Parents can Check Out Babies, Toddlers and PreSchool Students at their rooms at the end of the service (or for communion if you desire).
What is available for our Middle School and High School age children?
It is important for our MS and HS to be an active participant with our community. We encourage full interaction during the Sunday Service, volunteering within our church (worship, set up/tear down, Kids, coffee..etc), joining an MC with your family. We need the voice of your children, we need to learn with them and hear from them. We are all a part of the Church. We also have a gathering time once a month with our MS and HS students. After the service, we will share a meal, lean into life questions, build relationship, pray and encourage one another in our faith.
We also have a mentor program to pair a student up with an adult from our community who is committed to pray for and pour into the life of our MS and HS students.
