A long time ago, in a garden far, far away, were some children, youth, and adults who participated in summer activities at ESUMC…like Camp Shalom, Vacation Bible School, and Music and Worship Arts Camp. This summer, since we couldn’t gather together to enjoy these special camps, your Youth Ministry Team, Music and Worship Arts Team, and Children’s Ministry Team have worked together to create this camp for all families. Get everything you need for Plan Bee here…..
All year long is important to eStreet kids as well!
Just as Jesus did, we welcome all children to the ministries of our church. Our Children’s Ministries teach the Christian faith, model love and service, and support children and their families as they journey to become loving disciples of Christ. Our vision is to come alongside parents and guardians, the primary spiritual trainers, in guiding children in their lifelong quest to become fully devoted disciples of Christ.
We invite children and parents to “Come Grow With Us” through the numerous opportunities available to Know God, Love God, and Serve God through…
- Sunday morning nursery
- Sunday School classes for all ages
- small group bible studies for tweens
- special needs ministry
- scouting ministries
- summer camps and programs for all ages
- music and arts programs
- parenting and marriage classes
For questions, contact our Director of Children and Parent Ministries, Pam Russell, or Emily Funderburk (Assistant Director to Elementary Aged Ministries), or Robyn Creech (Assistant Director to Nursery-Preschool Ministries).

Sunday School is from 9:45 – 10:45. Parents are invited to consider one of our Adult Sunday school classes during the same time!
Please check in your child for Sunday school at one of three locations: the nursery desk, the lobby of Kerr Hall outside of the Gathering, or on the 3rd floor at the check in area. If your child will be leaving the Gathering service with the volunteers, please check them in ahead of time. Also, for safety reasons, parents should always plan to collect children from their classrooms after Sunday School.

– NURSERY VOLUNTEERS –
We want to come alongside parents of young children and babies and help them on Sundays so that they can worship and attend Sunday School or Bible study during this busy time in the life of their families. If you sign up to help in the nursery, you will be serving a very special group of children and parents! You will be serving alongside professional nannies who are CPR certified and trained. Your role will be assisting them by playing with children, rocking or holding babies, comforting, reading stories, etc. The nannies will change diapers and assist with bathroom issues. We hope that you will find places to serve in this very important ministry area in our congregation! Volunteer here!
