We want you to try several small groups if you will, and then you choose the one that is best for you.
Are There Places For My Preschooler Or My Children?
Absolutely! East Brent believes Children are one of the most important reasons God has given us for our existence. From early birth, to Preschoolers, all the way through the 6th grade, the children here have age appropriate Sunday School classes of their own. Our 1st through 4th grade even have a worship service in Children's Church just for them while our 5th and 6th graders have a lively center created just for them in the Preteen Department during the 9:15 Sunday School.
I have Teenagers, Will There Be Small Groups and Worship Experiences For Them?
Yes, and we are quite sure they will love the Student Center Auditorium and Loft created just for them.
