In 2005, God gathered Pastor Steven Furtick and seven other families to plant a church for the purpose of seeing people far from God be raised to life in Christ. In just a few short years, Elevation Church has witnessed tens of thousands of people accept Christ and is now meeting in multiple locations all across the Charlotte area. It’s an incredible movement of God.
eKidz is the family ministry of Elevation Church. eKidz is offered for children 6 weeks – 5th grade during every worship experience.
From start to finish, we strive to make your families’ time with us a great experience! We seek to make this your child’s favorite day of the week. We use skilled volunteers, technology, fun activities, and excellent environments to communicate the timeless knowledge of our loving God. We believe this makes eKidz a place your child will be begging you to bring them back to each week!
We would be honored to have your child in eKidz at Elevation Church and hope that you visit us soon! Here is what you and your family can expect:
Welcome! You’re our VIP!
Make sure to turn on your blinkers when you pull into the parking lot. You will be directed to our VIP parking. A volunteer from our VIP team will greet you and your family. At this time your child(ren) will receive a special eKidz VIP Pass!
Once inside, the VIP volunteer will escort you to eKidz Host Services and connect you with an eKidz Host Services volunteer who will help get your child checked-in to eKidz. In eKidz, we have a dual focus when you choose to entrust us with your child. First, we want to provide your child with an excellent worship experience where we minister to them on their level, but second, we want you to be able to enjoy your worship experience distraction-free and completely at ease with your child’s safety. We have two primary elements in place to help achieve this second goal: our check in system and our parent page system.
On your first visit to eKidz, we will collect some basic information and check your child into our computer-based database. We recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes before the worship experience for this initial transaction. You will be issued a temporary security tag. That tag will have a number on it that will match the number that prints on your child’s sticker nametag. You will need to show this security tag to pick up your child at the end of the worship experience. We will ask that you turn in this temporary tag after you pick up your child, but if/when you decide to attend Elevation regularly, we can issue you a permanent security tag. This will allow you to utilize our self-check in stations.
We also want you to know that if we ever needed to contact you during a worship experience, we have a system in place for that as well. As we collect information, we will ask for the number of a cell phone that you will have with you during the worship experience, set on a vibrate setting. If we need to reach you, we will send you a text message, letting you know of the situation and asking for you to come to your child. We have phones you can borrow if needed.
With these two systems in place, we feel that you can rest assured that your child will be secure in eKidz and we are honored that you would trust us with your most precious commodity.
While you are in the main worship experience, your child will be participating in a worship experience especially designed just for them!
Safari (ages 6 weeks – 2 years):
In Safari, children will DISCOVER who God is. In our baby room, volunteers pray weekly scripture over the babies and families. In our toddler rooms, children learn about God through interactive stories, fun songs, and crafts and activities.
Quest (3 years – Kindergarten):
In Quest, children will EXPLORE who God is. They will learn more about God from live storytellers, engaging stories on video, worship songs, and intentional small group activities.
Motion (1st – 5th grade):
In Motion, children will learn to BELIEVE in God and what it means to be a Christian. These important lessons are taught through a combination of video curriculum and live presentation, high-energy worship songs, and meaningful small group discussion.
After the Worship Experience
Make sure you stop by the BLACK TENT on your way out of the worship experience! Your child’s VIP pass will be “punched” during the worship experience. We have a special gift for each child who brings their VIP Pass to the Black Tent. It is our way of saying, “Thank You for worshipping with us today!”
Your Second Visit
We hope you enjoyed your experience and your child can’t wait to come back to eKidz! On your second visit, make sure your child brings their VIP Pass to eKidz Host Services to receive their 4th punch and an exclusive 2nd time guest gift!
