Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

The Children's Ministries of EFC exists to encourage children to have a firm knowledge of God’s Word and a desire to follow Christ in all areas of their lives. We want them to know how God has revealed Himself through His Word and to know more than just a Bible story. For that reason, our curriculum is God-centered. We also value Scripture memorization and the practical application of God’s Word. Equally important, we want children to see the love of Jesus modeled by caring adults. We feel that the primary spiritual influence in a child’s life should be his parents. With that in mind, we will do all we can to support you in your child’s spiritual training.

Sunday Mornings

9:00 a.m. - Worship Hour

We encourage and invite our families to worship together at the beginning of our service. The children are then dismissed to their classes. We have classes for children from age 2 up to 4th grade. Nursery care is also available.

11:00 a.m. - Discipleship Hour

During our Discipleship Hour, we have childcare for children from age 2 up to 5th grade. 

A closer look: Last Sunday 

Last Sunday (7/14) we were in Acts 4-5 "Peter Confronted Sin"
Ananias and Sapphira wanted to look generous, but they were greedy and chose to lie. The Holy Spirit changes our hearts to want to share with those in need. Jesus generously gave all He had so we can share in His riches and have forgiveness and eternal life.

A closer look:  This Sunday

This Sunday (7/21) we are in Romans 10. "We are to tell others about Jesus".
Just as Jesus came into the world so that people might come to trust in Him and be saved from their sins, Jesus has sent the church throughout the world to tell others about the salvation that can only be found in Jesus Christ.

Wednesdays

5:45-7:45 p.m.

AWANA Clubs is a church ministry that helps children grow morally and spiritually.  How?  By teaching kids to apply the Bible to their lives!
AWANA Clubs motivates children to learn God’s Word by:
  • Offering kid-sized fun—games, prizes, awards, theme nights and more.
  • Providing encouraging relationships with caring qualified leaders!
 
AWANA Clubs is a local-church program making a global impact.  Did you know that more than 12,000 churches across America—and nearly 11,000 churches, schools and orphanages around the world—run Awana Clubs?  That’s because Jesus loves children everywhere—and we do too!
All children (age two through 6th grade) are invited to participate.
