Children

Our EFree Children's Ministry seeks to partner with parents to provide a spiritual background that will bring a child into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Our desire is that this partnership with families will provide an educational experience that is biblically-based, age appropriate, relevant, relational, diverse and fun!

SUNDAYS:

Our weekly Sunday School Program is offered during our second church service from 10:45 AM to noon. Check-in begins at the Welcome Center downstairs at 10:30am.  The Gospel Project curriculum is presented by preschool and elementary leaders to classes for children from age 2 thru 5th grade. Sunday School begins with live worship, followed by a Bible lesson, monthly memory verse practice, and engaging activities to reinforce learning. Children are challenged to learn Bible truths and principles and to apply them in their daily lives throughout the week.  In the summer, we offer a Summer Sundae School where children learn to taste and see that the Lord is good through weekly bible lessons topped off with sweet ice cream treats.  

Nursery Care is provided during both 1st and 2nd service on Sundays. Parents with young children are encouraged to drop off their little ones, so that you may attend our worship services with full assurance that your child is cared for.  We also offer a Wiggle Room on the left side of the Worship Center for parents of infants who would like to remain with your infant in service.

WEDNESDAYS:

To keep children connected to their faith throughout the week, we offer a mid-week "Wednesday Night Live" for children 4 years old - 5th grade on Wednesday evenings, September through May, from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM. Each week, we provide games, activities, worship, and crafts as we dig into God’s Word. Registration cost will be $25.00 per child, with a maximum of $60.00 per family of three or more. All materials and a t-shirt are included in the cost. Wednesday Night Live will resume in the fall on September 11, 2024. 

FRIDAYS:

Every other month, we offer a complimentary EFree Parents Night Out and Kids Movie Night on a Friday evening.  This is a special time for parents to enjoy a night out while our kiddos engage in crafts, fellowship, food, and fun together as a church family.  We end the evening with popcorn and a feature film.  

SATURDAYS:

For children birth through 3 years old, we offer Pray & Play on the first Saturday of each month from 9 AM - 11 AM downstairs in the preschool room.  The purpose of this group is to connect moms and little ones in the same stage of life through a time of play, devotion, food, and prayer.  Childcare is provided for older siblings. Please check our Events page for upcoming meetings.

SUMMER VBS:

Every summer, our children, ages preschool through rising 5th graders, experience an incredible week of bible learning, faith activities, fun, games, and fellowship at EFree Vacation Bible School! This special week provides the opportunity for our entire church family to come together to volunteer or participate on an engaging faith journey.  We look forward to partnering with parents and volunteers each year to create a memorable program for our children to experience God’s Word.


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

With so many programs and events in Children’s Ministry, there are many opportunities to serve our children from birth through 5th grade. Whether serving in the nursery, volunteering as a Sunday or Wednesday leader/helper, or at VBS each summer, we have an opportunity for you to foster growth in a child’s faith journey.  Experience is not required, and we provide training for you to serve in this exciting ministry. If you would like to volunteer, please download and fill out the Volunteer Application.  We look forward to partnering with you as we teach children "To Know Jesus and Make Him Known."
