We believe we are divinely called to minister to children. Children were important to Christ, so that makes them important to us.

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.

Director: Kim Hughes
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 and ages 2 & 3 meet in their Sunday School room for Sunday School.
At this time, we do not offer a staffed nursery during the Sunday evening service. However, we just completed 2 NEW nurseries or cry rooms in the back of our sanctuary for our families with children under the age of 3. One room is a family nursery, and the other is designated for moms only.
