Eastside Kids is the Children's Ministry here at Eastside Church. In Eastside Kids we believe it is the job of the church to partner with the parents in raising Kingdom Kids! We believe that the home is where the foundation is laid, and that it is the job of the church to help by equipping both the parents and child with the tools they need to build their Kingdom Kids. Our hope is that you, the parents, are building throughout the week and what we bring on Sunday Mornings will simply add to what is already being established. Our hope is that you will see that the Holy Spirit has already equipped you with everything you need to train up your child and that we, the church, can support and encourage you along the way. We truly believe that we are not just serving in a children’s ministry, which is super fun, but we are serving families.
We have a fantastic team of leaders who are committed to creating the best atmosphere for your Kingdom Kids! We believe that there is no Junior Holy Spirit, and it’s never too soon to train up a child! We also believe in praying for each and every child that comes into each of our classrooms.
Every service is different, and you never know what crazy game we’re going to play, or what fun activity is planned...you just have to be there to find out!
Ages 1st-5th Grade
Eastside Kids is our 1st-5th grade class where we strive to create a place for elementary age kids to come every Sunday morning to learn what it means to be a Kingdom Kid in a fun, high energy environment. We provide a fun creative service where kids can learn basic truths about God’s word, and how to apply it to their lives to live as Kingdom Kids! It’s an amazing place to serve.
All volunteers have current background checks on file. We’d love to have you join the team, if you think it would be a great fit for you contact Anna Strylowski!
Eastside Junior is such a fun age! On Sunday mornings, our goal is to create a super fun environment for our 4’s and 5’s! We have an incredible curriculum (which includes a fun craft!) geared just for them. Our team does an incredible job of loving our kids well.
All volunteers have current background checks done. We are always looking for help with our Juniors, so if this sounds like a great fit for you, let us know by contacting Francis Altamirano!
Our Eastside Littles classrooms are currently split into 3 classes: 6 weeks-12 months, 12-24 months, and 2’s-3’s. Our goal is to create a safe and loving environment for all of our babies and toddlers. Eastside Littles is not just a babysitting job! We have an age appropriate curriculum (which includes a color sheet) for the 2’s-3’s class, as well as a bible story (and sometimes coloring) for our 12-24 months class. Our volunteers know the importance of making parents feel secure about leaving their children, and they do a fantastic job doing just that.
