Our Mission: To instill in the hearts of Evergreen children an understanding of who God is, what the gospel is, and how to have a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
We accomplish this mission by partnering with parents (where possible) and by diligently and persistently teaching the children to grow Deeper in Christ, Stronger in Community, and Wider in Influence, just as we do in the main service and all other areas of the church.
Please note: while the following is what our children’s ministry typically looks like at Evergreen, due to restrictions caused by the pandemic, things look a little different just now. Currently children are in the main service with adults, and we provide opportunities for them to be involved as well as activities for them to do during the sermon to keep them engaged. A gated area in the back of the room is available for toddlers as parents find the need to let them move about. We continue to assess the situation and look forward to resuming regular child-centered classes as soon as possible.
Evergreen Family Ministry
Nursery and Preschool
Our nursery and preschool classes are designed to show the kids of that age the love of Christ through songs, games, and toys. Social interaction and learning and expressing love for both themselves and for the adult volunteers reinforce concepts they learn at home. The preschool curriculum we use includes Bible stories, crafts, and games to stimulate their minds and keep them attentive.
eKids on the Rock
For kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade, we provide a solid foundation of bible teaching, ensuring they grasp the essence of God’s story woven throughout the Bible from Genesis through Christ’s ministry and the writings of the apostles. The curriculum is tailored for the age group and includes worksheets, interactive teaching, worship, crafts, snack-time, and games to teach them and captivate their attention during the Sunday service.
Our Middle School program is uniquely designed to work with this special age group of 6th through 8th grades. At this age, boys and girls are starting the exciting transition towards becoming young men and women, and it is at this critical point that we begin giving them the abstract tools they’ll need to understand and defend their faith for the long haul.
Our goal is that they begin to develop and round out a mature Christian worldview they’ll use as a basis for living out the Christian life every day of the week, every year of their lives.
We have a whole page dedicated to this special age group.
