(Ages K4- 5th Grade)
ECAMP, working in conjunction with Eastminster’s Children’s Ministry, was created to meet the spiritual and musical needs of its K4 – 5th Grade participants.

In Jesus Christ, God calls people to faith and membership in the Church, the body of Christ. Baptism is the visible sign of that call and claim on a human life and of entrance into the membership of the church.
Marriage is a gift from God. Modeled after Christ’s love for the church and rooted in Genesis 2, “therefore a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife and they become one flesh,” the couple make a covenant with God and one another. Mindful that marriage is both a gift from God and also a way to honor God, it is good and fitting that marriage vows are shared in the context of a special Worship Service, after pre-marital conversations have taken place. Recognizing the covenantal nature of marriage vows, Eastminster’s sanctuary is not available for public use. Eastminster members who would like to have their wedding ceremony in the sanctuary should contact the church.
A funeral or memorial service is a witness to the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and a celebration of the life of the deceased. The service is based on the Lord’s Day Service, and the last word spoken always reveals the promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

While attending the Peace Service, you will sense the presence of the Holy Spirit at work in your life. It is a time to worship and to hear from God in an intimate and quiet way. The service includes a short message, communion, and a time of prayer.
