We Love Kids!
Here at East Ave we work hard at creating a safe and fun environment for your child! Our Sunday morning programs are available for children 2 months through 5th Grade. Saturday evening worship also has childcare available. Some good things you should know:
NURSERY – 2 Months to 2 Years
Nursery is located across from the Kids Zone Check-In area. We open up 15 minutes before each service at 10:45AM and stay open through the end of the worship service.
**Nursing Mother’s Note**:If you are a Nursing Mother, and would like a private place to nurse, we have a Nursing Mother’s Room for you! It is accessed right inside the infant nursery, and is quiet and comfortable. There is also TV in the room playing the service so you don’t have to miss the message!
TODDLERS – 2 & 3 Year Olds
Once your child is running, they are ready for the Toddler Room! It opens 15 minutes prior to the beginning of worship. The kids play games, sing songs, and eat snacks in a bright room full of awesome toys!
PRE READERS – 4 to 6 Year Olds
Pre-Readers is designed as a transition classroom. The Preschoolers & Kindergarteners start in the worship service for the first music set and then are invited to leave for Room 106 with a Kids Zone staff member.
GENESIS – Grades 1 & 2
First and Second Graders meet in our newest classroom. They start in the worship service for the first music set and then are invited to leave for Room 110 with the teachers.
35 CLASS – Grades 3 to 5
Pronounced ‘thirty-five’, these classes are hands on learning for our oldest group of kids! The kids are invited to leave the adult worship service after the first music set.

Safety is important to us: All volunteers undergo a thorough background check including fingerprinting and an interview process. Additionally, most rooms are staffed with at least two caring adults to ensure your child is receiving a great amount of care and attention.
We are a co-op: Most of our volunteers also have children who benefit from our services. We consider volunteering for our Children’s Department to be a great way to participate in your child’s spiritual life, as well as a fantastic way to serve God. Volunteers serve 13 weekends out of the year (once a month plus one 5th Sunday a year) making it an easy commitment.
We think Worship is for the whole family: We believe that worship is a significant way for your family and the greater church family to come together and praise God. To that end, check-in for Toddlers, Pre-Readers, Genesis, and 4:5 classes takes place in the Lobby prior to service so that your children can sit with you during opening worship. From there, children are dismissed to their respective rooms and can be picked up from their classrooms after service.
We want your child to learn about Jesus!: How your child comes to know God is an essential part of our mission and purpose. We work very diligently to implement curriculum that is enriching, enjoyable and age-appropriate.
