(e)Kids at Embrace
At Embrace we offer safe, age-appropriate worship for our kids (infant through 5th grade) at each of our worship services. Kids will have a blast playing games, singing songs, and learning about Jesus in a way that's relevant to them.
(e)Kids is back!
Nursery and Early Childhood programs are back at our South Dakota campuses as of June 21, while Elementary programs will return to all four campuses on July 12!

(e)Kids early childhood
The (e)Kids early childhood areas at Embrace offer separate care and activities for infants through kindergarteners.
Nursery and 2 year-olds room
Here kids 0 to 2 years-old are loved on by our team of volunteers. Older kids are read Bible stories and have playtime with short activities.
3 year-olds room, Pre-K room, and Kindergarten room
Kids ages 3 through Kindergarten combine for worship and then meet in separate classrooms for Bible stories, activities, and crafts.
The Embrace Academy program at Embrace allow kids in 1st through 5th grade the chance to experience Jesus in an engaging and creative way while adults attend worship services.
Embrace Academy is a new method of doing kids ministry that disciples kids, brings purpose to volunteers, and reaches lost families.
Summer camps for kids are interest-based (horse camp, sports camp, art camp, etc). Most parents choose camps for their kids based on their child's interest and what they can afford. Embrace Academy is interest-based, no cost to families, and kid-led—a kids ministry for kids, by kids, and all about Jesus. It's like summer camp, but on a Sunday!
First time here?
Here's what to expect when you visit (e)Kids for the first time:
First, find the area marked off for first-time families. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
Checking in your child
Before Service: At Embrace we use a computerized check-in system that identifies each child with a unique code. You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: Please keep your tag and bring it with you to pick up your child. If you do not have your tag, you will need to print another one before picking your child up.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the sanctuary and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
5 minutes after each service starts, the doors to the (e)Kids areas will be locked for security. If you arrive late or need to get to your child during the service, a staff member will be happy to assist you. Safety is our priority, so thank you for helping keep the (e)Kids areas safe!
Every Embrace campus offers a nursery during services for infants, but we also have a Parent/Child Room at our 57th Street campus that's free for moms and dads to use if they're looking for a quieter space to enjoy worship with their infant.
