Ekklesia Kids seeks to support the spiritual formation of children by equipping families and helping each child feel known, seen, and loved both in our church community and by their creator, God.
We provide classes for infants-5th grade during the Sunday morning service. In our classes we want to give kids age appropriate space and activities to meet with God, share their stories, spark curiosity, ask questions, and invite them into an ongoing and deepening relationship with Jesus in hopes that we are nurturing a generation to connect with God, not just know about God.
Class check-in begins at 10:30am. Infants/toddlers may go ahead to their class while preschool-5th grade will join their families in the service for a time of worship and will then be dismissed to kids church.
Our current program at Ekklesia kids includes:
- Babies to 24 months
- 2-3 year olds
- 4-5 year olds
- K through 2nd grade
- 3rd through 5th grade
Kids Ministry Coordinator
Mel is a former teacher of the deaf and has been working with children in multiple capacities since middle school. She is married to Luke (who you have probably seen on the worship team), and they have one beautiful 8-year-old son, Sidikie. As a homeschool mom, she believes children learn best through hands-on experiences and having fun–and learning about Jesus is no different! Just a few of her interests include board games, traveling, theatre, all things Disney, and eating.
