WELCOME TO EKIDZ!

EKIDZ exists to partner with God and parents in fostering a child’s personal relationship with God through dynamic worship, Bible teaching, small groups and activations, and most of all through loving leaders who are committed to seeing and treating children as they truly are – masterpieces who are filled with Holy Spirit and dearly loved by Father God. We introduce Father God, as revealed by Jesus, to children who may not know Him. We want kids to know God – not just know about Him! The truths that God is good and each child’s identity and value is rooted in Jesus Christ are pillars of this ministry.

AGE GROUPS

GLORY DREAMERS

6 WEEKS - CRAWLING

Our volunteers are equipped to love and care for your baby in a safe, worshipful environment. Your little one will receive much loving attention! Our goal is for you to feel confident dropping off your child, so that you can enter into worship and encounter God in an incredible way.

WONDER

WALKING - 3 YEARS

Our Wonder room is filled with age-appropriate toys to spark imagination in a loving, and safe environment filled with God's Presence. Your toddler will have fun as they enjoy a time of worship and lesson. We understand this is your child's church and as they develop an understanding of church, we want them to know it's a safe place where they will be celebrated as they learn foundational truths about their Creator who loves them so very much and is with them ALWAYS!

TREASURE SEEKERS

4 YEARS - KINDERGARTEN

IGNITE

1ST - 5TH GRADE

Jesus is our greatest treasure and we can "find" Him with us every day, every moment! We incorporate a time of testimony and sharing to help children cultivate an awareness of God's Presence in their lives. Children will continue to learn the foundational truths that God Made Me, God Loves Me, and Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever through their worship and lesson time.
We want kids in IGNITE to have a blast encountering God - hearing His voice and sensing His Presence. We have dynamic, kid-led worship followed by a time of Bible teaching that focuses on engaging children. Our small group activities incorporate hands-on learning to help children internalize the truths they are learning. Kids are given opportunities to hear and encounter Jesus. Our goal is for kids to know God, not just know about Him. We trust Holy Spirit to reveal Himself to these precious kids.
