The volunteers at East Side understand that children are gifts from God. Our Children’s staff is dedicated to sharing Jesus and the truths from God’s Word with children. We believe that now, more than ever, children need a solid foundation on which to build their lives. The life built on the foundation of this world will collapse when the storms of life come. Our goal is to help children build on Jesus Christ: the sure foundation.

Sunday School

The Children’s Department offers graded Bible classes for children from birth through 5th grade. These classes are taught by loving adults who work and study hard to provide quality Bible studies for your children.

Bible Drill

Bible Drill helps children hide God’s Word in their hearts. Bible Drill is made up of three cycles of verses and key passages. Children who are 4th, 5th, and 6th graders are eligible to participate in Bible Drill.

The purpose of the drill is to help children:

  • increase in knowledge of the Bible
  • develop skills in locating Bible books and key passages
  • memorize the names of the books of the Bible in order plus selected Bible verses and key passages
  • learn how to apply the Bible to their lives


Catching Air is new for the next
generation of kids - with high energy games, a greater emphasis on missions, and more memory verses that help kids apply Bible truths to real life - while kids learn Bible truths foundational for every Christian.
