What Will ebcKids Experience in February?

Sunday School and Children’s Church



The internet helps us learn how to do so many things! From new skate tricks and viral recipes to helpful hacks, there’s a “how-to” for almost everything. But is there a tutorial video for how to follow God? This four-week series is kind of like that — thanks to some tutorials from Jesus! Each week, we’ll focus on one of Jesus’ teachings from the Sermon on the Mount as we learn “how to” make a difference, love our enemies, share with others, and pray.

Sunday Mornings

ebcNursery is provided during Sunday School and Worship Services.  Volunteers are trained by the Children’s Director and provide a secure and loving environment for babies and toddlers.

ebcPreschool and ebcKids meet during Sunday School (9:15 am) and Worship (10:30 am).  We believe God desires for all of His church to join in worship together, therefore, our children experience worship with the rest of the congregation to prepare them and equip them to be the church’s future before transitioning to age appropriate teaching and activities.

ebcKids (K – 5th grade) is located on the 2nd floor of the Sanctuary building.  Look for the ebckids sign at the bottom of the stairs.

ebcNursery and ebcPreschool are  located on the first floor of the Sanctuary building.  Check out the gallery of photos below.

Safety is our top priority.  All teachers and volunteers must pass a back-ground check prior to working in ebcNursery, ebcPreschool and ebcKids areas.  All teachers and volunteers also attend Safety Training workshops.

Please sign in your children on the first floor at the security station prior to going upstairs to the ebcKids classrooms or entering the ebcNursery and ebcPreschool area.  Each child will receive a unique security badge, and parents will obtain a security assurance identifier used to pick up their child after church.

New to Poquoson?

If you are checking out churches for kids’ programs, you may not know that, in addition to our children’s area and nursery, our Christian Outreach Center (COC) located at the back of the campus is a GYM, complete with bathrooms and kitchen.  A playground is located adjacent to one side door and a covered picnic shelter is at the opposite end.  There’s always something exciting for ebcKids, RAIN or SHINE!!!  Come meet other parents, and welcome to Poquoson!!
