Sunday Mornings at 10am
For families with children aged 12 months to 30 months we offer a nursery that’s fully staffed with dedicated and properly screened volunteers. During our public services parents can avail of this ministry while they have opportunity to participate in the worship service. For those who have infants under the age of 12 months, we have an unstaffed family room where parents can spend time with their children.
Ages 3 – 12
We are excited to offer a dedicated children’s worship service in which children can worship, learn and interact on an age appropriate level. This service will include worship, multimedia, drama and a sermon followed by small group learning.
Children are dismissed from the main worship auditorium with our children’s ministry workers. Parents/guardians can pick up their children in the fireside room following the Sunday morning worship service. If you have questions, drop by the connection desk in the main foyer.
We make use of a computerized check-in system that helps us provide a safe envoirnment for your child as you enjoy the main service in the sanctuary. With printed name tags we are able to keep track of head-counts, allergies and emergency contact information.
Simply drop by the Elim Kids counter in the lobby and one of our friendly kid volunteers would be happy to help.
