The Children's Ministry at the Eden Campus of Eden Westside Baptist is located on the 2nd floor of the Equipping Center, Building D, which was created with children in the 1st through 6th grade in mind. The Children's Ministry at the Leeds River Campus is located downstairs. From arrival to departure, children experience fun and fellowship as they worship Jesus. The Children's Ministry also offers many fun events throughout the year to strengthen a child's walk with Christ, to enjoy fellowship with others, and to build strong family relationships. We invite you to join us this Sunday morning, Sunday night, or Wednesday night for an exciting worship adventure.

2017-2018 Children's Choir Kick-Off is Sunday, August 20, 2017. Children's Choir will meet on Sundays at 5:00 PM in Room D218 at our Eden Campus - see you there!
Participating in the Eden Westside Children's choir is a great way for children to develop the gifts and talents God has given them. Matthew 21:16 tells us "out of the mouths of children and infants you have perfected praise".
Did you know? Children’s Choir is more than just learning songs! Want your child to listen more? Choir helps to strengthen listing skills. Want your child to score high on tests? Studies show children in music scored around 22 percent higher in English and 20 percent higher in math scores on standardized tests!
A few other benefits of Children’s Choir:
- Calms and focuses the mind
- Builds public speaking skills
- Nourishes the brain
Studies have shown that participating in music raises IQ and improves the ability to think and reason; music performances use almost every part of the brain. The choral setting provides emotional and social growth.
AND IT’S FUN!
Why would you not want your child to be a part of this amazing choir?
"I tell you, if they keep quiet, the rocks will cry out." Luke 19:40
