Last weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the children's ministry at Eagle Brook Church in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. Eagle Brook is a multi-site church with 6 campuses. The amazing children's ministry there is led by Darcy Wood and they minister to thousands of kids.
Kid-O-Deo is their birth through kindergarten ministry. In Kid-O-Deo, kids to learn to be lifelong followers of Jesus. They teach kids about God in a way that they will understand. Kids have fun, feel safe, build relationships with others and learn that God loves and accepts them. Here's a video overview.
Elevate is their elementary ministry. In Elevate, they provide kids with a place where they can make the decision to have a real relationship with Jesus and grow in their faith. Kids in Elevate participate in large group worship and teaching. They learn more about God through singing, teaching, Bible stories and life applications. After the large group service, they spend time in groups where they learn more about the lesson, ask questions, work through activities and build relationships with their peers and group leaders. Grades 1-3 have their own environment as well as grades 4-5. Here's a video overview.
They have been blessed with amazing facilities. Here are some pictures I took while there. If you are ever in the Minneapolis area, be sure to stop by and see what God is doing at Eagle Brook.
