E-ROCK Kids is specially designed to creatively develop and encourage children (and families) in their faith and life experience as they move through the various stages of youth!
Our incredible small group leaders are committed to pouring into your child’s life, partnering with parents, and cheering families on as they grow spiritually! We want kids to know how God’s Word fits in to their lives, to learn how to talk to God, and to build friendships that will last. That’s why it’s important to make sure your child connects with the same friends and same leader at the same hour— EVERY WEEKEND!
*Our staff and volunteers are thoroughly screened and trained, ready to serve God’s precious little ones.

E-Rock Kids Elementary
In E-ROCK Kids Elementary (K-5th Grade) we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship should be loud and fun, and every child should feel like they belong! We are passionate about investing in children’s spiritual lives by providing another godly voice alongside that of their parents. To do this, we provide a safe and fun environment in which children can flourish through a communal worship experience and creative small group activities (small groups are divided by age: K-1st, 2nd-3rd, and 4th-5th).
Before kids head off to middle school, it is our hope that these three truths will be embedded into their hearts and modeled in their lives:
I can trust God
no matter what.
I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
I need to make the wise choice.
