Our goal at Eastridge is to lead children in a way that allows them to meet, know, and follow Jesus!

Our friendly and qualified leaders are committed to building relationships, leading by example, and sharing God’s word in a fun, age-appropriate way that allows them to see how God is at work in our everyday lives.

Class Breakdown

Nursery

We have loving adults ready to spend time caring for your little one during both service times. This space is open for 0-23 mo. of age with no prior sign ups necessary.

Twos and Threes

Bring your 2 and 3 year old to share Bible stories, sing songs, and spend time playing with other children their age! The adults in this room are excited to share God’s love with each child while allowing them space in the room to explore and engage with children and toys in a safe and fun way.

Preschool/Kindergarten

All children 4 years through the completion of Kindergarten are invited to join in this fun filled community! Each week adults lead a blend of Bible lessons, songs, games, and crafts that are perfect for minds and hearts of children of this age!

1st - 3rd Grade

The focus in our 1st through 3rd grade ministry is for our students to grow in community as they learn what the Bible is, what’s inside of it, and why it’s so important! Join us for group games, crafts, and songs, as we study God’s word in a fun and engaging way that takes us cover to cover in just two years! Books, themes, and God’s work within the lives of people, are points we investigate while connecting with peers and growing together.

Preteen Ministry (4th & 5th Grade)

We are excited for all that’s happening with our kids in this “middle” age group! They are not young children anymore, yet not teenagers either… and sometimes navigating this new place in life can be challenging. Our welcoming and fun environment is set up in a way that encourages questions, discussion, and a place for each preteen to discover who it is that God is calling them to to be! We play fun games, enter crazy challenges, and always support each other as we keep our eyes on Christ and use His word to guide our choices in life! Our goal at Eastridge is to lead children in a way that allows them to meet, know, and follow Jesus!

**1st - 5th graders will start out in the main service with their parents (AFTER checking in/getting a name tag) and will be released from service after the first couple of songs. Leaders will meet kids in the back of the auditorium as they are released and walk them to their classes.
