“Train up a child in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” -Proverbs 22:6

ECC Kids is a safe and welcoming place where where each child is valued and known by name.  We offer Bible-based messages, songs, and skits that are relevant, engaging and fun.

When COVID hit, we developed innovative options for families. Kids loved our virtual Camp ECC, memories were made at Farm Church, and our Outdoor Services might become part of our new normal.

As the winter months approach, we’re committed to creating new opportunities that will provide safe, consistent, and helpful experiences for your family. If you’d like to learn more contact Kim Gayner.

Kids Programs

Nursery & Tots

Infants - Age 2

When we are able to do so in safe and responsible ways, infants and toddlers are welcomed into caring nursery environments designed just for them. We provide carefully-screened volunteers, a room filled with fun toys, and songs and stories about Jesus. As our toddlers turn two we begin to lovingly transition them into our “Tots” program which, in turn, helps them transition into Kids Church.

Kids Church

Age 3 - Grade 3

We embrace each child right where they are at cognitively, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Kids Church offers fun and wiggly activities to get kids moving, interactive songs and Bible lessons to connect them with God’s Story, and caring small group leaders who get to know kids as individuals and help them grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Pre-Teen

Grades 4-5

Students in grades 4-5 are at a unique crossroads that’s equal parts goofy and great. Many are ready to move beyond elementary teachings, but most aren’t ready for the topics and training that we offer in ECC Teen. We help our PreTEENS navigate this crucial transition from childhood to the teen years by providing events and opportunities where they can ask questions, be silly, and grow into a faith that they can own.

Program Specifics

Engaging is easy

When we offer onsite services, simply look for the ECC Kids table or tent. Helpful staff and volunteers will be available able answer your questions.

We card because we care

Like you, we want to know that our kids are safe. All of our leaders provide references and submit to a background check. When Kids Church is in session we provide each family with a security tag. Security tags must be presented when picking children up after the service.

Kids share more than toys

In order to maintain a healthy environment, we ask parents to care for their children at home when kids exhibit the kind of symptoms that keep you home from school.

Activities & Events

Big Church and Special Events

Our Sunday Worship Services are a place where our kids are regularly seen and heard! When Kids Church is in recess and children join the adults for worship, we often include songs and object lessons that actively involve our kids.

We also involve kids in church-wide outreach opportunities, coordinate occasional park playdates, and offer special family groups and events.

 

Summer Camp

Covenant Pines Bible Camp has been a place where people experience Christ in an outdoor setting since 1954. The camp covers 140 acres and is nestled between two lakes near McGregor, Minnesota.

As a member of the Covenant Family of Churches, we are part owners of this amazing camp. To learn more about CPBC and what they can offer you and your family, check out their website www.covenantpines.org.
