Essential Kidz

eKidz wants to Leave a Legacy of Love for God in the lives of the kidz and families. That’s our mission, our drive, the thing that motivates us. What does eKidz look like? Teams of awesome people who love God and find creative ways to engage kidz in what we are exploring in the Bible each week, making it fun, relatable, and something they can understand and start putting into practice in their lives. Background-checked team members greet your family as you drop off your child with a security name tag, and welcome them into a safe and age-appropriately designed room with friends to be made as well as stories, songs, games, and activities that aim to make it one of the best hours of their week.

Parents
eKidz also partners with parents through useful resources, special events, family milestones (like dedication and baptism) as well as useful ideas and activities to do each week at home.
Your child’s room leader or small group leader will have something prepared for you every week to help connect the biblical values from Sunday morning throughout your week at home, with easy talking points and activities that kids love doing with mom or dad.
And, we are ready to help celebrate those milestone moments in your child’s and family’s life!

Essential Youth

Essential Youth exists to remove non-essential barriers between students and God. We believe teenagers are world changers! Our youth ministry isn’t just another cool activity to add to a busy schedule. It’s a place for students to build deep friendships, experience God personally and be equipped for the work of ministry.  When middle-school and high-school students are devoted to Jesus, they can make a big impact in their homes, schools and other areas of influence.

Grade 6 – Grade 8
Sundays 5:30p-6:30p @ Salem Campus
We spend part of our time in small groups, part of our time singing with the Youth Band and part of our time listening to messages that are relevant to the lives of students. At Essential Youth everyone is accepted, everyone is real and everyone is fun. We welcome all middle school and high school students with open arms!
