As the children of Eastbrook Church grow, we encourage them to ask questions and study the Bible so their faith walk will grow as well. Using The Gospel Project curriculum, all of our children from preschool through 4th grade are learning the same lesson on the same Sunday, with their lesson presentation and activities differentiated for their age level. So, come Sunday evening, you can review Sunday School lessons as a family, because all of your preschool-4th graders will have had the same Bible content.
At Eastbrook, we want to channel kids’ natural love for singing into praise to our God. Lower Elementary kids stay in the worship service until dismissed at around 8:20 am to the Kids’ Praise and Worship Choir (K4-2nd grade) or the Credo Choir (3rd – 6th grades). Younger children staying through 2nd service will be transferred to their second-service classes by the choir teachers.
Check-in: Little Theater/A006 (Praise and Worship) or B228 (Credo)
Kids’ classes meet during the entire service time for worship, Bible story, and related activities.
Check-in: Lower Level A-Wing
During third hour, our K5 students have Sunday school with K4 in the Orange Room (B126) and Grades 1-4 are together in the A-Wing (Lower Level).
Check-in: K5 — Lower Level B-Wing
Grades 1-4 — Lower Level A-Wing
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. Click here to register your child.

Kids Clubs for Grades 3-4 meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. Students participate in gym time, a study of God’s Word, and time to have fellowship with their friends. Special events through the year include Gift Making Night in December and Pinewood Derby in the spring. Check-in in the Main Lobby.

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 click here to download the form and bring it with you, or fill it out when you get here.
We use a secure 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.
All Eastbrook NextGen events are led by staff and volunteers who have been through an extensive application process, background checks, and training. We 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.
Pass on a legacy of faith to the next generation. We are looking for people to invest in the lives of children by teaching Sunday school, being a classroom helper, or a check-in greeter. Get started by filling out the volunteer application at eastbrook.org/nextgenapp.
By God’s design children develop from infancy through adolescence in predictable patterns of physical, cognitive, social, and spiritual growth. As a church community we want to recognize our children’s spiritual milestones, and provide them with incremental steps toward a deeper, closer walk with Jesus. Our FaithMarkers require the cooperative effort of home and church, and they involve times of teaching and celebration.
This FaithMaker incorporates a 6 – 8 week Sunday School unit that explores praying at all times, on all occasions. In a half-day Prayer retreat, kids and parents walk through prayer stations based on each part of the Lord’s Prayer from Matthew 6:9-13.
This FaithMarker also includes a unit of Sunday School curriculum, and it explores the composition of the Bible—its genres, authors, and historical contexts. As children are competent readers by this age, they are introduced to the practice of daily Bible reading, and parents present them with a new Bible or devotional during the half-day retreat.
The Special Needs Resource Team exists to make the gospel and our NextGen ministries accessible to all children and students. Through inclusive programming, carefully-crafted accommodation plans, and one-on-one-buddy pairs, the team works to support our differently-abled friends, and encourage all families that no matter their child’s needs, Eastbrook can be a place for them to know the love of Jesus and find community.
Eastbrook’s Foster/Adoption Support Team (FAST) ministry provides prayer, encouragement, fellowship, education, and resources to families that God has given the privilege of joining in His work by fostering and adopting His children. We meet the second and fourth Sunday of each month in Room B225 from 9:30-10:45 am, with activities ranging from a book study to guest speakers to special family events.
