EASTSIDE CHILDREN'S MINISTRY
First time dropping your child off?
We don’t want to spoil the secret but church doesn’t have to be boring! Kidside is for children birth through 5th grade during each of our weekend services.
*Please note during our Christmas services we offer children’s programming birth – PreK.
Our staff and amazing volunteers are committed to creating a fun and safe environment for children to learn about God. Each month’s theme is taught through worship, interactive lessons, small groups, games, crafts, snacks, plus something to take home.
To save time, please pre-register and then meet us at the Kidside Guest Kiosk so we can get you checked in.
WHAT WE ARE LEARNING THIS MONTH
The love Jesus gives the world is hard for us to comprehend because it’s bigger and more gracious than the love the world offers. The love of Jesus is for everyone—everyone. Nothing can make Jesus stop loving us—nothing. It’s a God-sized love that has to be received before it’s understood. It’s that good.
Jesus loves everyone.
“Be kind and loving to each other.” Ephesians 4:32, NCV
God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Because of God’s love for us, we can be kind to everyone. Jesus modeled kindness, but He also commanded it. He taught us to treat others the way we want to be treated.
“You are God’s chosen people. You are holy and dearly loved. So put on tender mercy and kindness as if they were your clothes. Don’t be proud. Be gentle and patient.” Colossians 3:12, NIrV

To help your child get the most out of the Kidside experience we recommend picking a service and sticking to it (as much as possible). Our Kidside Change Makers serve at the same service with the same kids for the whole year (June-May). So for them to make great relationships and really experience community within the context of a small group, we recommend attending the same service so they will have the same leader and the same kids in their group. We desire to help your kids take steps in their spiritual journey and our weekend small groups are the best way to do that!
