Children


Eastbrook’s Children’s Ministry partners with parents to build a God-centered spiritual foundation for their children’s lives.

The Senior Director of our NextGen Department, Laure Herlinger, oversees a team of coordinators who focus on the developmental needs of a specific age group. Each coordinator recruits, screens, and trains volunteers to shepherd the children in their department. They also choose curriculum and prepare lessons and special events throughout the year.

One of the core values of children’s ministry is helping children to build relationships with their peers and with their adult or youth leaders. Because of this value, we keep children grouped according to their birthdate, and promote them to the next grade all at the same time (June). We use September 1st as a cut-off date to determine their age.

NextGenKids

Nursery
(Birth-Age 2)

Because babies usually have their first exposure to church in the nursery, we strive to provide them with a comfortable and secure atmosphere where they can experience God’s love through His people.

Preschool
(Ages 2-3)

Our Let’s Grow! Preschool gently transitions children from the childcare setting of Nursery to a Sunday School setting. We do this by introducing simple Bible stories, crafts, or other sensory experiences, in addition to free play time.

Kindergarten
(K4/K5)

Promise Kingdom provides a structured, playful environment for learning. The name “Promise Kingdom” refers to a 2-year cycle of curriculum: one year focusing on simple promises from the Bible, using the rainbow as its theme, and the other year focusing on the attributes of our King, using Psalm 145 and a “royal” theme.

Bible Explorers
(Grades 1-2)

In Bible Explorers, kids study unit-long stories of the Bible both Old and New Testaments. Children gain hands-on use of the bible, and as their reading develops, they learn to look up and read Bible references.

Route 34
(Grades 3-4)

Route 34 also uses unit-long stories of the Bible, so that kids can dig in deeper to the context of Bible stories they may already know. Kids in Route 34 are also offered a few more exciting opportunities: Wednesday night Kids’ Clubs and the annual CREDO Choir kids’ musical.

Club 56
(Grades 5-6)

Club 56 seeks to strengthen kids’ spiritual foundation by teaching an overview of the Bible (in Grade 5) and the basics of the Christian faith (in Grade 6). Club 56 leaders encourage kids to ask tough questions about their faith and to dig into the Bible for answers.

Faith Markers

Just as children have physical and cognitive developmental milestones, they also experience points of readiness for new steps of spiritual growth. Each FaithMarker involves participation at home and at church.
