Children

menu bar

At Elkdale our goal is to provide a safe and loving environment for children to learn about God, His Word, and His world.

 

We want to introduce each child to Jesus, lead them in a growing relationship with Him, and teach them that they can serve Jesus by serving others.

 

Nursery

On Sunday mornings, evenings, and Wednesday evenings, Elkdale's nursery is open for children under 4 years of age. We would love to care for your children so that you can participate in another ministry of our church. All of our nursery workers are thoroughly screened through Child Protect before they are allowed to work with your children.

 

Children's Church

Elkdale offers Children's Church (4 year old - 1st grade) during both Sunday morning services in the 4 year old Sunday School classroom. The kiddos leave the sanctuary with Miss Kim when instructions are given. This is a time for the kiddos to gather with a leader to study, listen, and learn more about God, and His son, Jesus.

 

Sunday School

Between our morning services, at 9:45 am, Sunday School is offered to people of all ages. Children's classes, 1 year old to 6th grade, meet in the preschool wing and the children's building.

 

We use The Gospel Project for Kids, which is a Christ-centered Bible study resource that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events from pre-creation to eternity. Each week, these stories come to life through video, music, activities, and more. The curriculum shows how each one of us fits into the big story of God's plan.
