EastKids is what we call our Kids Ministries here at East Somerset. EastKids includes our Nursery, Sunday Kids Worship Service, Sunday School, Wednesday Awana Clubs, and special events. Al of our efforts are designed to captivate, educate, and inspire kids toward seeing the beauty of Jesus, becoming aware of His great love for us, and guiding them toward a relationship with Him.
Here at EastKids, we don’t simply baby-sit your children on Sunday mornings. We’re here to provide a safe and fun environment that will lead your child to follow Jesus. It’s our honor to partner with you in this task. We operate with four core values:
We will provide a safe environment for children to enjoy. We want children to be safe and feel safe, and parents to rest assured that their child is well cared-for while they are in the service. For this reason, we obtain applications and background checks on every volunteer. Adults are never alone with children, and there are always two adults with children at all times.
We want your child to have fun! Our desire is to see your child have such a good time they will be begging you to come back next week. We believe creating this fun environment for kids will help children learn more about Jesus. We use games, crafts, props and creative stories to communicate the message, and we think it’s okay to have a good time at church.
We don’t want to simply entertain children, and we’re not here to babysit. We want children to learn about Jesus. Lessons about Christ and the Bible will be age appropriate and will help them understand God’s love and plan for their life.
We believe that what happens at home is more important than what happens at church. EastKids is partnering with parents by providing resources, support, and encouragement as they lead their families from where they are to where God wants them to be.
