Friday mornings during the Women’s Bible Study, we offer Lambs for children (ages 2-5) of women who are attending the study. 2-year-olds may enroll in Lambs as long as the child turns 2 by September 1. Use the form below to register your child. For more information, contact Karin Peterson; email@example.com, 414.228.5220 x262.
If you’re visiting for the first time, you will need to fill out a Family Registration Form. Use this form to register your family/add a child with the Eastbrook Church Children’s Ministry. You can download it and bring it with you, or fill it out when you get here.
We use an electronic check-in system that connects with our church database, CCB, to sign your child in to the Nursery. We also ask that you leave your cell phone number and put your phone on vibrate so you can be contacted if necessary. When you pick up your child, you will check them out using CCB.
We require all our volunteers to be trained and screened and maintain strict teacher-to-child ratios to ensure safe care. For health standards, children must be free from fever or symptoms of contagious disease for 24 hours. Let us know of any allergies or medical conditions your child may have.
Child Dedication is the first step in the process of raising children to be God-followers. Christian parents, living in the faith community promise before God to live life as kingdom people; praying, worshiping, reading scripture, and serving God. They promise to raise their children so that there is never a time they didn’t know the Lord. Child Dedications take place in the worship service 3 times a year, generally the third weekends of February, June, and October. A class is offered on Sunday the week before the dedication is held.
As children grow from infancy into preschool we celebrate their ability to participate in the church community as learners. Children who will turn by September 1 of each year are invited to a special event that introduces them to Sunday School. Sunday School is a place where children make friends with other children who are learning to love Jesus. Here they begin to feel how good it is to be in community with God’s people as they read bible stories, pray, and do activities to encourage a love for God. The special event is for the child and the parent and is held the Saturday before the first Sunday School class in Fall.
Children at about 4 years of age have an acute awareness of death and may even think about death many times a day. Their sensitivity to this topic makes this a good time to take about eternal life. Observant parents can look for opportunity to talk with their children about eternal life, especially during this stage of development. A special event is held in late spring for children and their parents that presents eternal life to the children and helps them to draw closer to the living God.
