Children's Ministry

Activities and classes for children through 5th grade are available on Sunday mornings and on Wednesday evenings during the school year at East Heights.

The church also hosts free, special activities for the community several times a year, including Vacation Bible School during the summer, an Easter-egg hunt in the spring and Trunk or Treat in the fall. Check the Events section during the year for  information about these activities.

Sunday School

At East Heights, we believe that even the very youngest are ready and eager to develop their faith and relationship with God. To help the children on their journey, we offer church school at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings for children ages 3 through fifth grade. Everyone meets upstairs, in The Summit, and all are welcome! If you are a newcomer, please ask one of our greeters to help you find the appropriate classroom.

We also offer Godly Play, a time for children ages 4 through 4th grade attending the 11 a.m. sanctuary service, to learn Bible stories. After the Time for Young Christians during 11 a.m. service, children will be directed to follow the Godly Play teacher to The Summit. Parents can pick up their children upstairs in The Summit after worship.

To learn more, email Cara Carthrae, director of Children’s Ministries, or call her at 682-6518.
