Our goal in Echo Kids is that through our age appropriate teaching, worship, activities and small groups your kids will fall in love with Jesus and develop their own personal relationship with Him. Each week our goal is that kids would leave knowing that: God loves them, we believe in them, and church is fun!

Joining for the first time? All about check in!Welcome to Echo Kids! We are so excited to meet your family on your first Sunday with us! Our team of trained, background-checked leaders will greet you and your kids and make sure your family is set up for a successful time with us. Our team will get you registered, ask about any allergies or special needs your child may have, and get your contact information. Or you can fill out the new family check-in form online to save a few minutes when you check-in for the first time. Then, you and your child will both get a sticker with a matching code that will be used for pick up time. If for any reason we need to reach you during the service, page you on the screen using the code on your sticker, or we will text you with the number you provide at check in. We can’t wait to meet you!
How do I know my kids are safe?Our goal is to create a safe, welcoming, and fun environment for all families. All of our leaders complete a background check and training prior to working with the kids. We also ensure each leader has accountability with our “Never Alone with a Child” policy. For pick up, each child’s alpha-numeric code on their name tag must be matched with the code on the adult’s pick up tag. Once the service begins, our doors to Echo Kids are closed and locked and remain locked and manned by an Echo Kids team member for the duration of the service. To connect with a staff to hear more about our safety policies email email@example.com.
Will my kids learn about Jesus?Absolutely! There's no babysitting here at Echo Life Church. Our goal is to provide a space where kids can come and encounter God in a real way each week. We are intentional with teaching children how to read Scripture and apply it to every day life. We use KidsSpring curriculum every weekend to teach each child about who God is and how much He loves him/her. Every week, through themed series your children will learn Biblical truths, memory verses, and practical ways to apply God’s word in their lives.
Which room does my child go in?Our rooms are set up to be mindful of ages and stages of life. Kids 1 - Kids 6 weeks old - 18 months Kids 2 - Kids 18 months - 3 years not yet potty trained Kids 3 - Kids 3 years - 4 years old who are potty trained Kids 4 - 5 years old (VPK) - 6 years old (kindergarten) Echo Elementary - 1st-5th grade *stay tuned! We will be opening a 4th and 5th grade only room soon!
When you arrive, look for our Kids Check-In area. You'll be greeted by one of our friendly Echo Kids Check-In leaders who is excited to meet your family and show you around our kids environment. We'll be with you every step of the way, all the way to your child's room.
On your first visit, you'll receive a key tag that is specific to your family. The next time you join us, you can use that key tag to check in at one of our self check-in stations.
Upon checking in, you and your child will receive matching security tags specific to your family and your visit. Your child will wear the name tag portion and you will keep the matching tag. After service, you will show the Echo Kids leader your matching security tag in order for your child to be released from his/her room. If you lose your ID tag, you will be required to show your drivers license in its place.
In the event that we may need to contact you during the service, we will flash your child’s security code on the screen. We ask that you immediately find an Echo Kids staff member or leader who will direct you to your child's room.
In our preschool rooms, children will learn through age-appropriate teaching, activities, worship, and small groups to reinforce Biblical truths. We also send home a take-home sheet, which you can work talk as a family throughout the week.
Our Kids services are design to present the love of Jesus to elementary kids in a way that is exciting, engaging, and practical. Every week they play games, experience worship, work on a Bible verse, and learn about the Bible through live and video teaching. They also receive prayer and make friends in our small group time. We also send home a take-home sheet, which you can work talk as a family throughout the week.
