Early Childhood Ministry
We would like to welcome you to be a part of our Early Childhood program. Our ministry exists to provide a safe and nurturing environment while teaching your child about the love of Jesus.
We want you to be able to attend church and/or your ABF, knowing that your child is in good and caring hands.
Our mission is to give our youngest church attendees a first look at who their Savior is. We do this by teaching them three simple truths: God Made Me, God Loves Me, and Jesus Wants to be My Friend Forever.
We also want to equip parents with the resources they need to make sharing their faith a part of their everyday life.

Who will care for my child?
All adult volunteers who work with children or students at Pine Acres Church have successfully undergone a background check. The safety of your children is our highest priority. If you are interested in serving with us, please contact the Early Childhood Director for more information.
How do I check my child in?
After a child’s first visit, their information will be entered in to the Check-In database.
When arriving for services, please check-in at the registration booth at the entrance to the Children’s Wing. An official greeter will be present and will gladly assist with any questions.
Upon completing the Check-In process, a nametag and check-out card will be printed. Please attach the nametag to the child’s back and retain the check-out card. The check-out card will be presented to the EC volunteer managing the child’s classroom during pick up.
What do I bring for my child?
