Kids Ministry at Eastside Christian Church

At Eastside our kids (infant through 4th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

We would love to see you and your family visit Eastside.

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting EKM for the first time:

First, locate the Nursery area and head to the red counter. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Eastside Littles (birth through Kindergarten)

Nursery (0 through 2 years) - Check in at the nursery by the red counter. Someone will help you print a sticker for security and then you can walk your child to their classroom and drop them off with our trained volunteers.

Preschool (3 years through Kindergarten) - Check-in is located on the right-hand side by the gym. Parents will print their own stickers and place them on their child and one of our ELM volunteers will lead them to their classroom.


After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, we will contact you at the provided number. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.

Eastside Elementary (1st through 4th grades)

Check-in is located outside the gym on the left. One of the EKM volunteers will check your child in and direct them to their room.

Nursing Room

Each Eastside service offers childcare for infants. But we also have a Nursing Room available for mothers with infants. This room has a separate space in the bathroom closest to door 4. If you need help locating this area, find one of our volunteers and they'll lead the way!
