We believe one of the greatest investments you can make in the Kingdom is into the next generation – our youth and children. Our focus is trained on how we can best serve our children, to recapture the excitement of the Gospel in a fun, relevant way.
Effort Kids is the children’s experience at Effort Church. It’s a safe, fun and exciting place for your kids to learn about God. At Effort Kids, we LOVE God and we LOVE kids! Whether it’s our fun and engaging services, our emphasis on friendly interaction, or even our safe and secure check-in and check-out, we exist to serve kids and their families. We look forward to having you join us this weekend!
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.
Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, singing, and live acting.
Check-in for all Effort Kids Infant-4th grade will be at the Children’s table in the lobby. You will receive a name tag and number for your child and then walk them to their room. They will be checked out from the same room you dropped them off. For our first-time visitors, please register your child at the check-in table with us, your child will receive a welcome bag, and a name tag and a number for you to pick them up after service.
**The safety of our children is very important to us. All adults serving with our children are required to go through a criminal background check.**

Effort Kids Pre-K
Effort Kids Preschool for children 3 years to Pre-K . Our volunteers combine a colorful Bible-based curriculum with music and fun activities intended to share the message that God loves and cherishes each child. The children are taught by loving adults who are dedicated to them and to God.
Effort Kids K-4
While parents enjoy the worship service, Kindergarten through 4th grade has their own exciting service going on!
Children encounter God’s Word through praise and worship, interactive Bible lessons, drama and more. This large group time is followed by small group experiences where they learn how to apply God’s truth to their lives in fun and interactive ways. Effort Kids volunteers endeavor to develop a relationship with you and your child, encouraging them in their faith journey, and praying regularly for you and your child.
We want to partner with parents to strengthen all our families! We only have 1 hour a week to help your child know Jesus and develop a relationship with Him, but you have the whole week. Each Sunday your child will bring home a “Family Connect Sheet”. This resource will keep the conversation going and help everyone to grow in their faith together!
