Welcome to ECHO! 

Welcome to the EDGE, the Kids Ministry of the Easley Church of God. I want to thank you for stopping by and checking out EDGE Kids Ministry! We have an exciting ministry and leadership team that is passionate about kids and seeing them transform into spiritual champions. It is our vision to introduce kids to the transforming power of Jesus Christ. We want kids to experience how real and incredible He is each week as they enter the EDGE. Most importantly we want them to understand that living for Christ means that we have to spend time alone in prayer and studying His awesome Word each day in our very own God Spot! When we get in our God Spot, it’s then that we experience the EDGE, an Every Day God Experience. We strive for the EDGE to be the kid’s favorite place to go each week! Again, thank you for stopping by and checking us out. Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing ya at the EDGE soon!

Experience the EDGE!

Please take a moment to check out our life-impacting ministries below. We offer distinct services according to your child’s grade level. We are geared toward teaching that living for Christ is not something we do but that it is something we experience through an Every Day God Experience!

Safety & Security

Providing a Safe and Fun Environment @ the EDGE
Our top priority is for every child to hear God’s Word in a fun and secure environment.
  • All registered kids may be checked in through the computer check-in system located in either the Early childhood Department for Nursery and Toddlers or downstairs for Majestic Jungle and EDGE Kids. A name tag and security tag is provided once the child is checked in. The security tag must be presented in order for the child to be released to the adult at the end of the service.
  • A child is not allowed to leave the kids ministry areas without an adult.
  • The staff and volunteers @ the EDGE have been screened by an outside investigation agency to provide your family with security as you attend worship.

We are committed to…

Relationships 
Built in large group and small group environments with other kids, adult leaders, and with Jesus!
 
Age Appropriateness
Kids learning about Jesus the way they understand best!
 
Creative Bible Teaching
God’s Word is full of wonder!  We strive to bring it alive through activities and discussions that teach kids how to apply God’s Word to their lives.
 
Safety
We believe that safety is vital to ensure a great experience.  Before during each service your child should be signed in and out at the Check-in Area on the Lower Level. No child will be permitted to leave without being signed out by an appropriate parent/guardian.
 
Life Change and Fun

Kids love fun as Jesus changes their lives!
