What is eKids?


eKids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed with your child in mind! We provide children (babies through 5th grade) an opportunity to experience safe environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are so passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way they can understand.

We would love to see you and your family visit eKids at our in-person gatherings or online with one of our eKids Connection Crews! Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!

First Time At Our In-Person Service?

As you pull into the parking lot, you can look for the eKids signs directing you to the eKids gathering space. If you have a child that is 2 years and older, they will be joining us in the designated eKids zone. If your child is under 2 years old, we ask that they stay with you in the service. We provide Baby Bins filled with activities and snacks for your little one to enjoy during the service.

Once you arrive at our eKids check-in station, we will ask for the following personal information: family members’ names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, email, school information, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child. Once we have that data collected, we can create your child and parent ID tags to use during the service and we will have contact information to keep you up to date on what’s happening with eKids over time!

How Does Check-In Work?

Check-in is open starting 15 minutes before the main service. After hands have been sanitized and masks are in place, you and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag. After the service, you will return to the check-in station and show your tag to the eKids Leader present in order for your child to be released back to you.

If we need to contact you during the service, we will contact you either via text message or by calling you. (Please remember to keep your phone on silent but on hand so you can see if you’re needed.) We ask that you make your way to the eKids Check-In station immediately and look for the eKids Host who will inform you about the situation and direct you to your child as needed.

If it’s your first time, you can pre-register below to save time at check-in.

After eKids

On your way home, be sure to ask your child questions like, “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn today?” Each week at eKids your children will take home a page that lets you know what they talked about on Sunday morning and ways that you can continue this conversation at home, so take a look at their page and ask them about it.

Still Have Questions?

Please be sure to ask any of our eKids volunteers or staff if you have questions, or you can email [email protected].

eKids Connect Crew

Our eKids gather in person once a month at our in person services for Eikon Church. As we continue practicing care and caution for our children and their families, our eKids gatherings will take place primarily online for the time being. On Sundays when we are not in person, we meet online via a protected ZOOM CONNECT CREW.

Our eKids Connect Crew is designed to provide our eKids at Eikon with a safe space to connect with their peers and discover more about Jesus together!

The eKids Connect Crew runs from 11am to Noon (CST) on Sundays. During our time, we will share highs and lows, recap the week’s Bible story, and participate in a fun interactive activity through ZOOM. You can find information about the crew and how to sign your child(ren) up below!
