We Love Your Kids!

We love your kids! The Children’s Ministry at Evangelical Free Church of Chico (EFCC) exists to partner with families in laying a solid spiritual foundation for every child, birth through Grade 5.  We seek to introduce children to Jesus in a safe and fun environment.  We have age appropriate programs for every child so that they can learn, grow in their faith and have fun too!

We care about the safety of your children.  All of our volunteers and childcare staff complete a thorough vetting process which includes a background check prior to serving with children.

For more information on Children’s Ministry contact Pastor Jim Baylor at Jim@efcChico.org or 530.343.6022 Ext. 218.

No children’s program during this service. Your children are welcome to join you in the service or you can listen from the Soothing Room upstairs.  It has comfortable seating, toys for the kids, and a large screen TV to view the service.

Throughout the year, we plan a ton of fun activities for kids such as Summer Camp, Easter Extravaganza, Kids’ Christmas Celebration, Winter Camp and more!

Under 2: Nursery (Room 3)
2 year: Room 2
3 year: Room 4
4 – 5 year (non-Kindergarten): Room 6
Kindergarten – 5th Grade: Room 8 (Check-in / Pick-up)

Note: K-5th graders are in the Multipurpose Room during large group time. Please pick up your K-5th Graders from Children’s Church in their classrooms at 11:00 am to join you for worship in the Sanctuary.

We have recently began a new format in the children’s ministry! Kids K-through 5th grade now gather together for worship and a Bible lesson, as well as spend time with their leaders in small groups applying the lessons.

Your kids are invited to join us on Sundays at 9:45 am in the Multipurpose Room! Our goal for your kids is to provide Bible-based teaching, relevant application of lessons, relationship building, and a safe and fun environment.

A few times a year we plan special events for our 5th graders only. In the past we have planned movie nights, skate nights, scavenger hunts and more! If you have a 5th grader, they will receive invitations to these special events.

Under 2: Nursery (Room 3)
Age 2 & 3: Room 4
4 – 5 year (non-Kindergarten): Room 6
Kindergarten – 5th Grade: Attend the worship portion of the Contemporary Service with their parents in the Sanctuary.

Note: Parents have the option to dismiss their children to their teachers in the foyer or have them stay in the Sanctuary with them. Children who are dismissed will need to be picked up after service from the Multipurpose Room.
