Children and Family

How will our children learn to make ethical, moral decisions?  

How will they encounter life's wonder, awe, mystery and hope?  

East Woods Presbyterian Church's Children's Ministry is committed to helping children build a joyous and loving relationship with God through knowing Jesus Christ and discovering God's Word in the Holy Bible.

It is our goal to excite, engage, and instruct young disciples about the Word of God through age-appropriate activities, song, drama, crafts, and games. Our teachers strive to connect with each child with compassion, gentleness, and humility.  As children learn about God's teachings, they will discover their place in the church, how to apply these teachings to their lives and become true disciples of Jesus Christ.

Check out our "Events" page to see what special events may be coming up for your child.


Children are invited to attend Sunday School following the Time For Younger Disciples during our Worship Service

(children stay with their families the last Sunday of each month)

Our central focus is to connect the children with our Lord, Jesus Christ. We also want to help children develop a sense of deeper involvement and ownership around our worship liturgy and practices.  Worship happens when we praise God together.  Praise includes our petitions.

Worship is our gift to God.  More than this, worship involves giving God the honor God is due.  HONOR involves respect, gratitude and admiration; recognizing and embracing God as Creator, God's goodness, kindness and mercy, and God's most gracious gift of all, God's own Son, Jesus Christ.

Come join us as we celebrate and worship alongside our children.

VBS 2020:

Knights of North Castle

June 22-25

Registration coming soon!

North Castle is hidden in a frozen land.  The King’s valiant Knights are on a quest in search of the King’s armor.  But the armor isn’t what they think it is.


Cokesbury’s VBS 2020, Knights of North Castle:  Quest for the King’s Armor, invites children to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power by exploring how we put on the armor of God.  Kids will take on the role of brave knights and begin their quest each session by opening the King’s Book.


They’ll explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor - the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation – at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.


Help kids take up the gauntlet this summer and accept the challenge to “armor up” and be strong by remaining with God.
