what is ekids?

eKids is for kids from newborn – 5th grade, where they will learn about Jesus on their level. Our mission is to build kids into fully devoted followers of Christ by instilling unshakable faith inside their hearts and in their homes. To do this, we partner with parents to help their kids grow to know and love Jesus.

your first visit

We want you and your family to have an excellent experience in eKids! When you arrive at an Evangel campus, head to the “New to eKids” Welcome Desk. When you get there, one of our eKids Dream Team members will ask a few questions about your family in order to help us serve you well. They’ll ask things like what allergies your child may have, birthdate, how many children are in your family, and how to contact you. Both you and your child will then get a sticker with a matching code unique to only your family. You’ll need this sticker to check-in and check-out your child to help ensure the safety of all children in eKids.

Are there Wednesday night services for my kids?

eKids has Connect Groups that take place for elementary-aged kids throughout the school year. These Connect Groups are organized by grade, gender, and activities. They also follow a curriculum called TRANSFORM where kids learn how to be a disciple of Jesus. Kids who want to participate need to pre-register.

Spring 2024 Connect Groups are full in Bismarck, and the Garrison Campus still has registration available.

Is eKids safe and secure?

Behind our secured doors are background-checked, trained leaders and parents who are ready to give your kids Jesus on their level. Outside of the secured doors, Safety Team members are monitoring the hallways, exits, security cameras, and traffic. To check your child out of the secure eKids area, you are required to have the security tag with a random three-digit code matching your child’s name tag.

What happens if I need to come get my child during services?

Find an eKids Welcome Team member or a Safety Team member, show them your security tag, and they can let you into the secured area. If your child needs you during service, we will send a text to your cell phone.

How do I serve with my children?

At eKids, we truly believe in giving your children Jesus on their level. In order to do this, we partner with parents like you to help your kids grow to know and love Jesus. We love that you want to serve! To serve on the eKids Dream Team, please attend Discover to learn more about serving opportunities at Evangel and at eKids.

What’s my child’s next step after salvation?

We are so excited for your child’s decision to follow Jesus! We want to help equip your child with a “Now What?” booklet, their very own Bible, and information about their next step–water baptism. Find us at the eKids New Here booth to grab these resources.

We believe that a person should be baptized after they make a personal decision to follow Jesus. We want kids to understand the decision they are making, to take the decision seriously, and to make it on their own, so we recommend that they be at least six years old.

What is Foundations?

If you want to build a strong house, you need a good foundation. The same goes in building your kids up to be passionate followers of Jesus. That's why we created Foundations! Foundations is an interactive, at-home, educational course that will walk you and your child through salvation, water baptism, and other faith milestones!
