Because every kid matters to God.
We want kids to know about a God who created them, loves them, and is with them every day. Everything they experience at a Kids service helps to do just that—whether it’s online or in-person.
When you get to church, look for the Kids Check-In area. A staff or volunteer will be there to answer any questions you have, help you get checked in, and find the right room for your child. If you can, plan to arrive 15 minutes early so you can drop off your kids and head into the service without missing anything!
Staying home this weekend? Here’s everything you need to have a Kid-O-Deo or Elevate experience wherever you are. Just watch the video with your kids and follow the Family Activity Guide.
Where would you love to explore? The densest jungle? The deepest sea? This summer, we’re taking an expedition to learn more about ourselves, and the amazing way God designed every one of us. Get ready to blaze a trail into the unknown, and discover some incredible things about God, our world, and ourselves.
Watch the video. Then keep the conversation going with the Trailblazer Guidebook.
All Kids volunteers and staff are background-checked and trained before they start volunteering—so know that your kids are in safe hands.
Every weekend at Kids Check-In, your family is assigned a random, three-digit alpha-numeric code that is on your child’s name tag and your security tag. This same code will be displayed in the auditorium in the event that your child needs you. You will use your security tag to pick up your child in their classroom after the service.
If your kid feels sick at home, they'll feel sick at church. We want all of our kids to remain healthy and happy, so we ask that kids be kept at home if they're not feeling well. We'll be very excited to see them the following week!
Kids Care supports kids with disabilities and additional needs ages birth-grade 5 so that they and their grown-ups can attend church and know Jesus!
Types of Assistance
Each Eagle Brook Church location offers two primary types of assistance within the early childhood (Kid-O-Deo) and elementary (Elevate) ministries:
1. Room Assistant
A room assistant is scheduled for each service in the larger group settings (preschool/kindergarten and grades 1-5) to support the large group leader. Room assistant volunteers support kids who may need basic help with attention, sensory needs, redirection, or social interaction. They relate with the kids and are available to interact with parents at pick-up.
2. Side-by-Side Volunteer
For a child who would benefit from a one-on-one volunteer based on higher physical, developmental, or behavioral needs, Side-by-Side (SBS) volunteers are uniquely matched up with interested families. An SBS volunteer works with the family directly and will meet the child for the service and be present with him/her from start to finish, creatively plotting best practices for inclusion. (Ideally, two SBS volunteers will be assigned per one child, alternating serving weeks.)
We are passionate about providing support so that kids and families can get to church and know Jesus!
It is also our goal that kids are:
Some examples of diagnoses that may be appropriate for Kids Care support include: ADHD, autism, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, or sensory processing disorder.
If you have a child who would benefit from Kids Care support, please read our parent/child guidelines, then fill out the Kids Care questionnaire so we may be aware of their unique information. You can also stop by the Kids Check-In area to request support.
Parent/Child Dedication is a time of public and personal commitment, where parents make a promise to teach their kids about building a relationship with Jesus Christ. Get all the details on this incredible step below.
