Train up a child in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Proverbs 22:6

During this season it is our desire to bring your family a consistent, Biblical at-home experience for your kids.

Kids Programs

Nursery & Tots

Infants - Age 2

Infants and toddlers are welcomed into safe and caring nursery environment designed just for them. We provide carefully-screened volunteers, a room filled with fun toys, and songs and stories about Jesus. As our toddlers turn two we begin to lovingly transition them into our “Tots” program which, in turn, helps them transition into Kids Church.

Kids Church

Age 3 - Grade 3

We embrace each child right where they are at cognitively, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. We provide fun and wiggly activities to get kids moving, interactive songs and Bible lessons to connect them with God’s Story, and caring small group leaders who get to know them as individuals and help them grow in their relationship with Jesus.


Grades 4-5

Students in grades 4-5 are at a unique crossroads in life. Most are ready to move beyond elementary teachings, but most aren’t ready for the topics and level of training that we offer in ECC Teen. We help our “pre-teens” navigate this crucial transition from childhood to the teen years through an outstanding Sunday morning program and special events. Pre-Teen programming is currently offered during both services.

Program Specifics

Registration is easy

Simply enter through the Upper Level entrance to the Shoreview Community Center and look for the ECC Kids table immediately to your left. Helpful staff and volunteers will be able to help you register your child and answer your questions.

We card because we care

Like you, we want to know that our kids are safe. All of our leaders provide references and submit to a background check. We also provide each family with a security tag. Security tags must be presented when picking children up after the service.

Kids share more than toys

In order to maintain a healthy environment, we ask parents to care for their children at home when kids exhibit the kind of symptoms that keep you home from school.

Activities & Events

Big Church and Special Events

Our Sunday Worship Services are a place where our kids are regularly seen and heard! When Kids Church is in recess and children join the adults for worship, we often include songs and object lessons that actively involve our kids.

We also involve kids in church-wide outreach opportunities, coordinate occasional park playdates, and offer special family groups and events.


Summer Camp

Covenant Pines Bible Camp has been a place where people experience Christ in an outdoor setting since 1954. The camp covers 140 acres and is nestled between two lakes near McGregor, Minnesota.

As a member of the Covenant Family of Churches, we are part owners of this amazing camp. To learn more about CPBC and what they can offer you and your family, check out their website
