Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

We long to see the children of Emergence develop a strong understanding of the nature and character of God so that they can be confident in His love for them. Our desire is to partner with and support parents in discipling their children through safe and engaging environments, Christ-centered stories, and age appropriate resources that are rooted in the Gospel of Jesus. We want kids to be excited about Jesus so they can develop a lasting faith.

 Every campus of Emergence has a fully staffed children's ministry during all morning services, caring for children from birth through 4th grade.

SAFETY
  • Every volunteer on the eTown team is background checked locally and nationally. While parents are able to focus in the main gathering, our team provides a fun, faith-building experience for your children in a secure environment at each campus. 
  • Each eTown location is equipped with a secure entrance and exit monitored by a Security team. Only volunteers with badges, children and parents with matching tags will be allowed to enter.
  • We maintain an allergy friendly environment in eTown. Together with parents, we utilize a system to identify allergies for individual children and then tag and list these sensitivities within our classrooms.

FIRST VISIT?
If you’re visiting for the first time, we'll help get you registered into our system (”REALM”) and give you a check-in sticker for each child. These stickers serve two purposes:
  • Parent paging — If we need to contact you during the service, the letters on your sticker will appear on the screens in the auditorium.
  • Child drop-off and pick-up — You must present your sticker to both the security guard at the entrance to eTown and the teacher in your child’s classroom before we can release your child.
You may check your children in 30 minutes before the start of service, but you may only drop them off 10 minutes before the service and when their teachers arrive.

FAMILY DISCIPLESHIP
  • Each week, we hand out a parent take home page called "Parent Cue." This resource provides families with scripture, a bible truth, and practical steps to take at home to help move your child to a deeper faith. You will receive a hard copy at church along with access to the Parent Cue app.

SPECIAL NEEDS
  • If you have a child with special needs, our hope is that we can partner with you in ministering to your child. Please email us so that we can have someone from our special needs ministry discuss with your family how we can best minister to your child.
