CHILDREN AT BIBLE EFC

Our Mission for Children's Ministry is to develop a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, within the hearts of the children in our church and in our community through enriching activities, ministries and special events that encourage a desire to share the Good News with family, friends and others.


BASIC KID NOTES

VOLUNTEERS

All volunteers have gone through a child protection training and have had a back ground check. Volunteers are asked to check in and get their name tag so children and family members know that they are in the gym to have fun with them. 


CHECK IN

We ask that all families stop at the check in station before their kiddos head into the gym.  We will have your child wear a name tag so we know they are supposed to be in there. We will ask you to fill out a registration form if you are new to Bible EFC. Check in will begin 15 minutes prior to service.


PICK UP

We ask parents/adults to wait until the gym doors are open and then we will release children once a volunteer sees you and can bring them to you. 


CHILDREN'S SECURITY

We strive to do our best to love your children and protect them.  We will have the gym doors locked when there is not a check in attendant present. Volunteers and children will be able to exit the gym in the event of an emergency but it limit access to the gym while ministry is happening. Do not worry if you arrive late or need to pick up your children early and there is not an attendant outside the gym doors.  Please ring the doorbell located towards the top of the door and a Children's Volunteer will greet you at the door and help you. 



CHILDREN ON SUNDAYS

Children's options are currently only offered during the 10:15 AM service. *We would ask that children stay in the same class all year. Example:  If your child turns three part way through the school year, we ask that your child stays in the nursery until next fall*


NURSERY

Our nursery is designed to allow parents (and all adults) the opportunity to fully take part of our worship service and know that your kiddos are cared for and loved. Nursery is offered for children birth to 2. 


PRESCHOOL

This classroom is available for children 3 & 4 year olds. This also include children that are in 4k or preschool.


ELEMENTARY SUNDAY SCHOOL

After check in, students will head to the gym for a large group lesson.  Once the large group lesson is done they students break into smaller groups for activities suited for the grade level.



CHILDREN ON WEDNESDAYS

Awana is our Wednesday Night ministry for children age 3 through 6th grade. Awana is weekly from September to April. Awana introduces biblical truths and develops a respect for God, His Son and His Word. Then we work to ensure that kids are not only knowledgeable of God's Word but are able to apply His truth to their lives and face anything as disciples of Christ. It is from 5:45-7:30 PM and begins in the gym.  

Here is our online registration and here is a printable calendar

Instead of VBS, in 2020, we had 2 one-night events for children to come together in smaller groups to Seek Jesus & Find out how much He loves them.
