Children's Ministries (infants - 6th grade)

We invite you to discover everything East Hills has to offer for you and your child. Our Bible-centered curriculum will encourage and enhance the relationship that your child has with the Lord.  The teachers and assistants at East Hills have a heart for children and prepare diligently each week to teach your child about the truths and love of Christ. East Hills Children's Ministry is a safe, entertaining, loving and most importantly, a Christ-centered place for your child to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord.  We will not only teach your child about the love of Christ, but demonstrate it to them as well.

The Bible tells us in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go, when he is old he will not depart from it.”

What an amazing gift for us here at East Hills when we can provide children with Bible truths.  We know children are important to God.

Whether you're a parent of a child who is already in our program, or a visitor to our ministry, it is our prayer that you’ll see Jesus in everything we do.

(Visit our News section to see how you can pray for your child and all our children.  Prayers change monthly.)

 

Baby Konnection 

Sunday Mornings

Baby Konnection is our early childhood ministry and provides care for our younger children (0-4 years old) during Sunday morning service. 

It is our desire to enhance the learning and worship experience of parents or guardians by assuring them that each child is comfortable, safe, and happy. Caring adults, along with adult/teen assistants, staff our 0-4 year old rooms. 

We have separate classrooms for infants, toddlers, and 3-4 year olds.

Nursery Guidelines

In order for your child to be happier, safer, and better cared for, the Nursery Committee has established some guidelines (for a complete list, see the check-in table).

Please sign in your child.

Please mark all your child’s belongings.

Please provide pacifier clips.

Notify us of any allergies or special needs.

Please do not leave the grounds while your child is in our care. 

Illness Policy:  Please help keep our nurseries a safe place for everyone by holding your child back if they are sick or contagious (a list of symptoms are available at our check-in table).  Our nursery policy prohibits volunteers from administering any medications.

Complete Guildelines and Illness Policy can be found here.

Bible Bucks Program (Sunday Mornings)

We have an exciting Bible Bucks Program for Adventure Kids (Grades 3rd - 6th).  On the last Sunday of the month they may shop with their bucks at our Bible Bucks Store!

Children are encouraged to bring their Bible to church, as we use them during class.  We’ll be highlighting and reading from this most accurate history book there is!

We encourage families to share/review stories learned during class and even help your child to memorize their verses.  Your involvement will greatly enhance your child’s learning on Sundays.
