Eastview Children’s Ministry

We believe we are divinely called to minister to children. Children were important to Christ, so that makes them important to us. At Eastview Children’s Ministry we don’t babysit- we minister to every child! From the moment children arrive at an ECM event or service, it’s all about them! ECM is an exciting and vibrant place where children are encouraged and taught the word of God. All classes are filled with fun, interactive learning opportunities.
Children age 4-11 can enjoy:
  • Sunday School, held on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM and a free breakfast that is served from 9:00 AM until 9:45AM in the Children’s Center.

We love children, and we encourage you to bring your little ones to church and model worship for them. We understand children will be children, but even at an early age, children can feel the love of Jesus and can show Him their love.
On Sunday mornings & Wednesday nights, we offer a staffed Nursery for ages 6 weeks to age 3. On Sunday mornings, ages 6 weeks to age 2 meet in the Nursery Classroom and ages 2 & 3 meet in Toddler Classroom for Sunday School.
