For Kids 6 Weeks - 5th Grade
At East Swamp Kids (also called ESK or ESKids) our mission is to help children encounter Jesus and grow in a relationship with Him in an exciting and safe atmosphere. We believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be loud, and volunteers should know your kids by name. Our Children's Church program is designed to attract kids' hearts so that their ESK experience is the best hour of their week! We provide a platform where kids can connect to other kids as they build lasting friendships, and to caring adult and teen leaders, who teach about God in a way that is understandable and applicable.
Parenting is hard - we are here to partner with you as you raise your family to "love God and love others."
ESKids is for children aged 6 weeks to 5th grade. We divide ESKids into separate environments so we can engage your child at their level. Our babies and toddlers (6 weeks – 35 months) are cared for in the nursery, where your child will experience fun learning activities with others his or her age, and will receive focused attention from our loving leaders. Preschoolers (aged 3-5 years) and elementary (K-5th grades) all participate in Children’s Church. They are divided by age into small groups where they can ask questions, have a blast, and learn about Jesus in a way that connects with them on their level.
We offer identical Children’s Church programming for both our 9 and 10:30 a.m. worship services, so feel free to choose the service that works best for your family. Upon arrival at our campus, check your kids in at any of our three check-in kiosks. Once you and your children have your matching name tags and claim ticket, kids can be dropped off at their rooms. About 5 minutes after the worship service start time, all of our preschool – 5th grade kids walk with their leaders to our large group space called “The Landing” for Rally Time! Rally Time is an exciting and energy-filled start to Children’s Church where all ages experience fun activities, exciting worship music and movement, a Bible lesson, and some introductory discussion. Rally Time typically lasts approximately 30 minutes, after which the kids head back to their separate rooms for small group activities, application of the lesson, discussion, and prayer.
We would love to see you and your family at East Swamp Church. We welcome new families every week, so come anytime!When you walk in the door for your first visit, look for signage directing you to the Children’s Check-In Area. At the check-in area, you’ll be greeted by a friendly volunteer who will help you register your children in our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead you and your child to their age appropriate room. Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone.)
You’ll be handed a sticker with your child’s name, their room number, the unique ID number that is used to page you if your child would happen to need you during the service, and a matching sticker for you to hold on to. Safety and security are important to us. When you return to pick up your child, we’ll make sure the numbers on your ticket match your child’s sticker before dismissing them from class.
We have an incredible team of East Swamp Kids volunteers. Our volunteers are background checked and trained. They are our heroes, who show up each week to connect with your kids; and every week we make sure they have what they need to do a great job! If you’re a new parent to ESKids, the volunteers working with your child’s age group will be happy to introduce themselves and answer any questions you might have.
At ESKids, we believe connection is important for kids, but for you, too. We offer different programs and activities throughout the year to foster these connections, where you can meet and interact with East Swamp families or families in the community while your kids connect with their friends, or just make some great memories together. We do some things just for FUN – like our Fall Fest and Family Fun Nights; some things to foster discipleship – like our Family Dedication Experience and summer kids’ camps; and we offer opportunities for your family to serve together in the community – such as the Quakertown Easter Egg Hunt or Christmas Tree Lighting. Check back here (see calendar dates below) to see what you can get involved with!
