Welcome to Evangel Kids!

Kids are a BIG part of Evangel Church! We want children to know that God created them to love them and that He is with them always! With Jesus love for kids in mind, we have created an exciting variety of kid’s experiences each and every week and throughout the year! Evangel is an Intergenerational church in which the generations learn from one another. We believe kids grow closer to Jesus when we come together across generations!

kids in Worship

We have an intergenerational approach that welcomes children in worship. We understand that a full service may be difficult for some children, so we offer some resources to help. There are activity bags available to help occupy the time of young worshipers.

CHILDREN'S CHURCH is offered at both the 8:30AM and 10:30AM service for children ages 3 - grade 5. Evangel Children's Church is “messy”, highly interactive, fast paced and fun!

The NURSERY is fully staffed at 9:30AM during Sunday School and during the 10:30AM worship service. The nursery is unstaffed but available during the 8:30 AM worship service.

Nursery Fun!

The safety of our children is important to Evangel. We follow "Safe Sanctuary" guidelines and policies to help keep everyone safe.

sunday school

Evangel Sunday School is a place where kids from 3 yrs. old – senior high school get to make friends. The students hear, read and participate in Bible stories, interact with loving adults, have lots of fun, and learn what it means to be a life long follower of Jesus. The students are put in classes by grade level.

Sunday School runs at 9:30AM every Sunday, in between the two worship services. 

(There are adult classes available as well!)

Summer ministries

Mega Kids Camp

Mega Kids Camp is an annual 4 day camp for PreK through Grade 6 that includes many activities along with fun and entertaining worship rallies that teach the children about Jesus.

Intergenerational Community outreach

Kids discipleship at Evangel takes place inside and outside the classroom! What we learn inside our church about loving and serving others, we then put into action outside in our community and world by being the “hands and feet” of Jesus. From Sunday School competitions of who can collect the most food for the food wall to raking leaves for seniors as well as fun events like Trunk or Treat and Mega Kids Camp, our kids and their families have many opportunities to reach out to the community.

  • Feed the Need!


    In the spring, Evangel Sunday School classes have a friendly competition to see which class can gather the most food for our food shelf drive. The students start the drive and build a wall in the church and then the church hosts a "Feed the Need" food drive inviting the community to contribute. Over $50,000 of food has been raised for the Salvation army Food shelf.

  • Trunk or Treat

Once the hard work is done, there is always something fun to do afterword like smores and a campfire or decorating pumpkins.
