Children’s Ministry

We’re so glad you’ve decided to check out Forks Kids! Our goal is for your kids to have a genuine relationship with God, build a Biblical foundation for their lives, grow with friends and leaders, and love being at church.

Every Sunday at Forks, kids from birth-5th grade experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative, fun and relevant way. We would love to see you and your family visit Forks of Elkhorn Baptist Church and check out our Kid’s Ministry this Sunday. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!

Nursery & Children’s Church

We offer nursery and children’s church each Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

Sunday School

Beginning June 13, we will offer Sunday School for birth-5th grade at 9:45 a.m.

Secure Children’s Check-in

We use a secure check-in system. When you drop off your child, both you and your child will get a sticker with matching numbers. To pick up your child, you’ll present your sticker. If your child needs you during the service, we’ll send you a text message.

New Families

Checking in for the first time takes a few extra minutes. If you’d like to save time on Sunday morning, you can go ahead and create your account in our check-in system right now. Then, when you get here on Sunday morning you’ll head straight to our Check-in Kiosk, key in your phone number, and be able to check in your kids quickly and easily!

Vacation Bible School

Bring your children to Wilderness Escape Vacation Bible School, and become part of the journey as Moses and the Israelites watch God guide and provide! They’ll travel back into Bible times—without setting foot outside our community. Each day, your kids can become part of history as they see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in the Bible-times wilderness! They’ll explore the Israelite Camp tents, visit Moses, take part in games, dance to lively Bible songs, and sample tasty tidbits as you discover more about Moses’ adventures. These experiences make God’s Word come alive with new meaning for all who participate!

Wilderness Escape will run from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. each day July 12-15, 2021. All kids from preschool (potty-trained 3 years olds +) through rising 6th graders are invited to attend! We will follow current covid guidelines and restrictions. There is no cost to attend VBS at Forks and you do not need to be church members to attend. We will not serve a meal during VBS, but we will send kids home with a prepacked snack.

Online Children’s Resources

We are excited to be back in-person for children’s church at both Sunday services! However, we know that some are not yet ready or able to attend in-person at this time. Below you’ll find recommended resources and videos so that you can continue discipling your children at home.

KidSpring At Home

KidSpring Children’s Ministry offers a video lesson, activity, and coloring sheets each week for children in Preschool and Elementary School. We hope you’ll add these fun and faith-filled videos to your week!

Parent Cue App

Free app by the creators of our Children’s Church curriculum that contains tons of helpful information, videos, and podcasts. The Parent Cue App helps every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future.
