What is Elevate Kidz?
Elevate Kidz (eKidz) is an exciting children’s ministry designed to help your boy or girl take their next steps toward Christ. Our Sunday and Mid-week services provide worship, teaching and a variety of fun activities as children are exposed to God’s Word and are challenged to grow in their relationship with Christ.
Who Attends eKidz?
All boys and girls Preschool through 5th grade attend Elevate Kids each Sunday!
How Can I Stay In the Loop?
You can keep up with quick updates, encouragements and reminders by checking the eKidz Facebook page.
We desire for each child to experience a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We also value children’s relationships within the small group setting as they relate to their small group leader and other children within the group. As families commit to attending the same service each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where relationships can grow!
Our children’s services are fully staffed with trained volunteers both adults and high school students from our 212 Student Ministry who are committed to teaching and ministering to children. You can be confident that your child is well cared for and having a great time learning about God while you are enjoying our worship service.
We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children each week. Therefore, every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification tag, every volunteer is screened with an interview and federal background check, and every hallway is monitored with security personnel.
Creative Bible Teaching
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through Epic Bible Adventures, activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.
Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus.
First Time at eKidz?
Look for the eKidz area an locate our new guest check in booth. We will meet your family and check your child into our database system. Once your family is checked in, one of our volunteers will be happy to show you the eKidz ministry area.
We will ask for the following personal information: family member’s names, children’s names and birthdates, family address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.
You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion of your matching identification tag. During checkout you will be ask to show the matching I.D. tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
On your way home, be sure to ask your child: “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn today?”
A Special Note
If for some reason you need to enter the eKidz Ministry Center you will need to find a member of eKidz Team who will give you a Guest ID tag to wear and will escort you to the ministry area.
What Should I Expect When I Return to eKidz?
As you enter eKidz, your first stop should be at our Check-In Station where a friendly volunteer will check your child in for the service. Our check-in stations open 15 minutes prior to the service.
We provide every child and parent/guardian with an ID tag/card every Sunday when the child is check in. Please hold on to your portion of the ID card until checkout at the end of the service. You will need it to check your child out of eKidz. No child is released unless the matching identification sticker is presented.
We ask that each child be checked out immediately after the worship service is dismissed.
Please be sure to ask any of our amazing volunteers or staff if you have questions about our values, policies or procedures. Thanks for checking out eKidz!
