Babies - 2 years (Early Childhood)
In both the nursery and the one-year toddler room we focus on nurturing children through music, play, and loving interaction.
In the two-year old class we introduce basic biblical truths through bible stories, worship, and craft activities while still allowing time for play and loving interaction.
“I love when children are happy and especially love when the children sing bible songs and learn their bible verse.”
Sylvia LeRiche (Early Childhood Coordinator)
3 years - Kindergarten (Preschool)
In the three, four, and five year old classes, the focus is to continue building the foundation of basic biblical truths through bible stories, worship, and craft activities while still allowing time for play and loving interaction.
In the Kindergarten class, they experience kids’ church on a slightly larger scale as they spend part of their time in “The Lodge” (environment for 1st-3rd graders). They will enjoy bible story and worship time with older kids, and then spend the remainder of their time in The Loft (kindergarten class) participating in discussions and activities, while still allowing time for play and loving interaction.
“My favorite thing is hearing preschoolers learning and laughing in the classrooms, and knowing they are hearing life changing messages from the Bible.”
Chrissy Najarro (Preschool Coordinator)
1st - 3rd Grade (The Lodge)
The Lodge is an environment where children are taught and challenged to expand biblical knowledge into life application. The focus is to create opportunities for children to experience “God moments”, build faithful friendships, and learn spiritual disciplines through interactive worship, bible stories, and “small group” activities with children of similar ages. All of this is accomplished while still allowing time for play and loving interaction.
“One of my favorite parts of ministry is seeing a parent’s reaction to their child’s biblical knowledge growing either through them remembering a bible story, memory verse, or even hearing about them singing one of our worship songs in the car on the way home.”
Noah Naipo (Children’s Pastor)
4th - 5th Grade (The Bridge)
The Bridge is an environment where fourth and fifth grade students are taught and challenged to expand biblical knowledge at a more mature level. We focus on helping the older elementary students prepare for transition into middle school and Evergreen Youth by providing live worship, bible stories, and biblical discussions to encourage them to make their faith journey personal. As with early elementary students (1st-3rd grade), we try to create opportunities for students to experience “God moments”, build faithful friendships, and learn spiritual disciplines.
“What I love about leading The Bridge is the opportunity to create relationships between the students and their families, as well as creating a comfortable environment for kids to experience God through worship, a lesson, or an activity.”
Caitlyn Griffin (The Bridge Coordinator)
SPECIAL NEEDS (THE COVE)
Evergreen Christian Community is proud to offer “all” families a place to experience and worship God in many different ways as part of our vision to change the world through more and better followers of Jesus.
In that, we want to personally invite any families to come and try out our Special Needs classroom, The Cove. Our heart is that parents with a special needs student could come to church and have a safe, engaging, and comfortable environment that they feel confident leaving their child at, while they attend one of our adult gatherings.
The Cove is staffed with a mix of paid personnel and volunteers that all have a heart to serve and create the best experience possible for all special needs students and their families.
