East Side Children's Ministry





NURSERY

Nursery Childcare - Check in begins at 9:00AM. Children 2 years old and under by RSVP only

Nursery Classes - Check-in begins: 10:00AM

Each nursery class is visited by an engaging curriculum teacher who ties every lesson back to God as creator and introduces the Bible as God's Word. Additionally, our permanent staff teachers lead circle time, story time, coloring activities, and snack each week.



PRESCHOOL (3's & 4's)

Sundays 9:15AM - 10:00AM

Children will engage in worship with focused music and instrument segments led by a professional music teacher. During the Big God Story, the Bible will come alive for our preschoolers in new ways. The children will dramatize one part of God's word each week, and will begin to explore how they, too, are a meaningful part of God's wonderful story.

10:00AM- 10:40AM -- Preschool Check-In and Free Play

Parents will not need to pick up their children from Discover, they will be lead to Wonder Worship by their teacher.

10:45AM – 11:45AM

PRESCHOOL WORSHIP A large group worship time during which our preschoolers will be introduced to the Bible as one complete story about God's love and redemption through Jesus Christ.

Each week, they will experience one part of the Big God Story and will respond through exciting games and worship in an interactive environment. They will then have small group time providing an opportunity to build relationships — both with peers and leaders — as they apply and reflect on the lessons through art, activities, and prayer.



Elementary –Kindergarten through 5th Grade

Sundays 9:15AM – 10:15AM

Every family will want to make Dive Deep a priority: your child will be a part of a discipleship group that will stay together all year—led by mature Christian teachers, building community and guiding them through fundamental questions such as "What does it mean to believe the Gospel?" and "What does it mean to follow Christ?"

10:15AM –10:45AM

Parents will pick up their children from Dive Deep at 10:15AM. The children will attend the first part of Redeemer East Side's worship service with their parents, and once they are dismissed, will be escorted to Children's Worship.

10:45AM – 11:45AM

CHILDREN'S WORSHIP, a time of high-energy music, skits, and interactive gospel teaching—highlighting the nature and attributes of God

Following worship, children will break out into small groups designed to encourage them to apply what they have learned with their friends. This will also be a great opportunity for our kids to invite their friends who don't attend church yet to hear the gospel in a fun and engaging way.

10:30AM – 11:45AM

Mustard Seeds, our class for children with special needs, includes a Gospel lesson, music, and activities tailored for their needs. Mustard Seeds is also a community of families who share wisdom, both practical and spiritual, and support each other in community.
