eKids is an important part of our mission as we partner with you to lead your kids to grow in their walk with Christ.
I’m so thrilled to be able to welcome families into our new classrooms!
Just like in our church services, we’re taking additional steps to keep our eKids environment safe (and fun) for your family!
Masks are optional at all functions, in all areas, for all ages at Echo Community Church.
- We understand that mask wearing is a personal choice and we continue to support each one in making a decision that's best for you. Echo supports the right of all volunteers and children to choose to wear masks for personal safety.
- We will continue temperature checks for volunteers and children.
Of course, we'll need to work together to help keep eKids a safe place for everyone, so please stay home and participate in church online if your child has had a fever in the past 14 days, shows any symptoms of COVID-19, or has been around anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
If you have any questions about what to expect, please don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know.
