Is There Anything for Children?
Yes! Here at Ellicott City Church, we strive to make sure that our church is a place for kids to enjoy learning about Jesus in fun, engaging ways. For us, church is the perfect place for children of all ages to come together to meet new friends, sing and play, and have fun, all while praising God. Here are a few of the things we have going on for kids:
We have classes for children of all ages every Sabbath morning from 9:45 am to 10:45 am. In that hour, kids learn a Bible lesson for the day, sing, make crafts and hear a Bible story.
Our children’s church is the perfect place for kids to be during the main worship service. Kids love the fact that they get to enjoy their very own worship time in the gym. The stories, songs and activities geared specifically for kids ages 4-12 are designed to teach children about God’s love in a fun way.
The first Sabbath of every month is dedicated to kids! The kids start with breakfast, then spend the morning learning new songs, focusing on a key theme, and being transported to another time and place during their Bible adventure. Following a special Kingdom KIDZ, the children enjoy a special lunch together. The afternoon is jam-packed with fun activities, whether its scavenger hunts and kite-flying at the park, or Bible Jeopardy and t-shirt making at the church.
We look forward to meeting you! You can expect a warm welcome, and you will feel right at home.
