Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NIV
Family Ministry At Epworth
At Epworth, our children and students experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
Nursery Care and Parents Viewing Room
Each week, we have a paid nursery care attendant located in our Viewing Room available at the back of sanctuary for infants up to age 3. It is also available for mothers and fathers with infants. This room is reserved for parents with infants to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment.
Kids Sunday School
During the service, we invite children to follow our trained Kids Club volunteers downstairs to the Education Wing where they will receive a weekly message designed just for them. Children can be picked up by their parents following the service.
After the service, we invite children to hang around for Kids Club! During Kids Club children will expand on their Sunday School lesson with fun games, crafts, snacks, and free play. It’s an opportunity for parents to join one of our Sunday morning small groups while kids get to have lots of fun! Kids Club is located in the Kids Sunday School room, so there’s no need to come pick your kids up until after small group.
We know that it’s not always easy to participate in our worship service when you have children that need your attention. That’s why we’ve also created our Family Corner in the back of the sanctuary. This special area is for parents and children who want to come read and play quietly without having to leave the sanctuary itself. Books, quiet blocks, and more are available for you to use.
