Sunday Morning Small Groups start at 9:30 AM for all-ages. Babies - PreK 4&5 year olds take place in the Preschool Ministry and school-aged children are grouped by grade level. Each Adult Small Group has a little different personality based on the leaders and those who attend. We encourage you to try a few different groups until you find one that best fits you!
You can expect our Worship Services (8:15 & 10:45 AM Sundays) to last around 60 minutes in total. Service begins with the Emerald Coast Worship Team leading the church in music. Song lyrics are projected onto the screen so you can sing along and/or engage in worship however makes you feel comfortable. After the music, Dr. Steve Taylor will come and share an encouraging, hope-filled message about Jesus.
One thing that is apparent at ECF is our love for families and children! Our children have a blast coming to church each week and are excited to learn about Jesus! Safety is our top priority and because of this we have a detailed check-in process for our children. The first time you visit you want to leave yourself an extra few minutes to get signed in for our ECFKids experience.
During Small Groups on Sundays at 9:30 AM all children receive a Bible-based lesson from teachers who love and care for them. Our preschoolers use a hands-on approach to learning foundational Bible stories.
During the morning worship services (Sundays at 8:15 & 10:45 AM), all school-aged children (K-5th grade) are included in corporate worship with their parents. We understand that children sometimes need assistance “focusing” during a worship service, so we always provide Biblically-based worship materials for our elementary-aged children. Extended care is offered for babies and preschoolers, birth through age 5, in our Preschool Ministry.
