Kidz City

Kidz City is Eastgate's very creative childcare department. It's a city that belongs to the children, and our "Mayor," Debbie Clark, sees to that each week is a new adventure for all children ages birth-12 years.  Our nursery is overseen by Carole Miller, so your baby sees the same loving face each week and develops a trust relationship with them. 

What to expect

A day at Kidz City begins as soon as your family arrives, checking in at the Kidz City desk with Pastor/Mayor, Debbie Clark, who securely signs in each child digitally. Once you are in our system, you can also sign up from your car within a half mile of the church to speed up check-in each week.

weekly snacks and rewards

Snacks are also given during classes, and parents can feel good about the fact that Kidz City only serves healthy organic snacks from an all fruit menu (and the kids love it when Deaconess Elaine, "the fruit lady," shows up at their door). 

Since launching Kidz City, more young families have come our way and we are hopeful that your family will be one of them! See you Sunday!

    Pastor Debbie Clark

    Debbie was born and raised in the cold state of Maine, then transplanted to the warm, sunny State of Florida at the age of 16. The Lord took a transplanted teen and introduced her to a classmate who invited her to church, where she received Jesus. She went on to attend a christian college and then stayed in the great state of Tennessee to pursue her dreams. Only God could take a broken teen, transplant her, and make her whole!
