ENCOUNTER CHURCH LOVES KIDS. 

Encounter Children's Ministry exists to bring children into age-appropriate WORSHIP where they can BELONG to the family of God, GROW in their knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ, learn to SERVE others and SHARE God's love with their community. Our children's ministry groups are led by trained volunteers who have a passion to introduce kids to Christ and help them experience the love of Jesus. This is a place where kids learn to fall in love with Him and hear the gospel in energetic and interactive ways. K.I.C.K. I.T.: 


Wednesday evenings 7:00-8:30pm K.I.C.K. I.T. is our mid week program where kids will engage in kid friendly Bible study and life application. They will also have the opportunity to take part in making crafts, playing games, singing songs, memorizing scripture, serving others and learning life skills. Kids begin with worship and then are divided into age groups for classroom activity.


CHILDREN'S CHURCH: 

Sunday mornings 10-11:30am FLASH: 3yrs-5yrs Our preschool program strives to meet the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual needs of your preschool aged child during the worship service. Children will check in by the playground gate before the 10am service and can be checked out at the same place by an adult after the service. EXTREME: 1st-6th Grade Our Extreme program allows kids to take part in worship with their families and then are dismissed from the service to the youth center to enjoy a time of worship, Bible study and interaction with their peers. These kids will discuss real-life experiences, seek Biblical truth and participate in a variety of activities that appeal to different learning styles. Kids can be picked up at the youth center after worship.

ALPHA TEENS

ALPHA TEENS SERVE OUR JR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS


TUESDAYS 7:00-8:45PM AT ENCOUNTER

7th and 8th grade students are invited to ALPHA TEENS. Students are encouraged to bring friends for an energetic night including a relevant message designed to help kids discover The Love of God, the Grace of Jesus Christ and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit. At Alpha Teens, kids will engage in crazy games, make new friends, take part in many fun activities and encounter God through all of these experiences. They will also learn to live well in community by loving their neighbors, and through discipleship will learn to reach out to those who don't yet know the love of God. 


ECC Alpha Teens leaders have a heart and passion for middle schoolers to know that God loves them and sent his only son to give them eternal life. Each of our volunteers will develop a mentor relationship with the students who come and become a great support to them during their middle school years.
