Welcome to E-Free’s Children’s Ministry, we offer a place where kids are safe, known, and loved! Our desire is to build relationships with your family and walk along side as your child grows in “wisdom and stature”, learning about the love of Christ and their purpose in God!
We align with our church vision: We lead people of all ages and stages to real transformation in Christ, by targeting the hearts of children through relationship and teaching that shows them who Christ is and how God created them to be someone very special.
We offer opportunities to learn, make friends, serve others and share Christ’s love.
- Sunday’s are our prime teaching times with Children’s Church at each morning service and Sunday School in between. See Below.
- AWANA which is a Monday afterschool program for learning God’s Word, amazing games, tasty snacks, making new friends and more!
- Kids’ Club is offered during the Summer months on Wed. evenings. Kids have fun and serve our community in a variety of ways. Information Coming Soon.
- Vacation Bible School (VBS) – held the last week of June, is four fun filled days of music, activities, more friends, a great message of God’s enduring love.
We ask that parents complete the Pre-registration Form for their children before their first visit if possible. You can download the form here or pick one up at the Children’s Check In, in the classrooms, or at either nursery.
What’s behind all these activities?
Faithful, loving volunteers who spend time in a variety of ways to get to know your children. They are in prayer over our children and families; they study the Word in personal quiet times and Bible study, they thoughtfully prepare lessons with their particular students in mind. On Sundays you can find them cradling babies in the nursery, blowing bubbles with the preschoolers, building the walls of Jericho with the 1st & 2nd graders, motivating the 3rd &4th graders to act as they believe, and challenging the 5th & 6th graders to see a world view that includes God and all of this is focused on the saving grace of Jesus!
Join us at the time that works best for your family! We look forward to serving and walking with you on this journey of growing faith.

Class Times and Descriptions
Nursery – Is offered during every service time. Our dedicated Team Leaders and Volunteer Staff take great care of even the littlest of our church family, with love and lots of experience. Free play, bible stories, songs, and a safe snack are included. Feel free to keep your infants with you in the sanctuary. If they grow restless, we have a comfortable Cry Room where you can still see and hear the service. More About the Nursery
Children’s Church – ages 3yr. through 4th grade.
It’s just that, church for kids! We have music, bible stories, offering, prayer, and fun application activities. Using The Gospel Project curriculum which leads us on the amazing journey through the bible we cover all the great bible stories from Old to New Testament seeing Jesus at every exciting turn.
8:30 a.m. – Kids join their families for worship then are released to their classrooms
11:00 a.m. – Kids come directly to worship (grades 1-4) for their own worship and bible story then head to classrooms for application activities. Preschoolers go directly to their classrooms.
Sunday School – ages 3yrs. through 6th grade.
Held at 9:45-10:45 is really more Bible Study than Children’s Church. Our curriculum, Explore the Bible, focuses on one book of the bible, or a couple of shorter ones, over several weeks so that the kids really dig into what the stories are about, how they fit into God’s big plan, and how their lives, hearts, and actions can be impacted by God’s word.
Attended regularly by most of the kids, there is more opportunity for building deep friendships both with teachers and other kids. Kids who are connected to other adults and children, who believe in Christ, learn to trust what the bible says and will rely on God when life gets a bit more challenging.
E-Free will be changing their service times beginning August 27
How does this affect children’s classes? The new service times will not change our class schedule. We will still offer both Children’s Church and Sunday School as follows:
- 8:15 — Children’s Church and Worship Service: Nursery – 4th grades join opening worship with their families then are released to their classrooms.
- 9:45 — Sunday School and Worship Service: Nursery – 6th grades go directly to their classrooms.
- 11:30 — Children’s Church and Worship Service: Nursery – 4th grades go directly to their classrooms.
