There is no more important work than that of introducing others to the person and work of Jesus Christ and there’s no better place to start than with our children. Did you know that children ages 5-13 have a 32% probability of accepting Christ? By comparison, adults ages 18 and up have a 6% probability of accepting Jesus Christ as Lord. Clearly our most critical evangelistic outreach is in this vital ministry.
It is our goal to serve families by instructing their children from the Scriptures in order to establish a foundation of truth upon which the child will build for the rest of his/her life. Children’s MInistry at Waterbrook is in partnership with families to lay the spiritual foundation that will help guide your child into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and then to help equip them for a lifetime of spiritual growth. Nothing we do is more important!
We strive to provide a safe and loving environment, while providing age appropriate instruction and care. Our volunteers get on their hands and knees, both literally and figuratively, to engage our children with Biblical truth.
At Waterbrook, we offer quality programming for children of all ages because we believe children matter!
Children (newborns through 5th grade) are checked into their classrooms using our KidCheck computer system. Each child is checked back out to parents using the same system and matching computer labels provided at check in. All children’s ministry workers are trained before being allowed to work with children. They must complete an application process which includes a background check. Sure, these are extra steps for our church and parents; but we believe the safety of our children is worth it.
Our Nursery and Preschool classrooms are located in the 100 Building next to the auditorium. The classrooms are clean and fun. Our workers love young children and use the service times to play, sing, tell Bible stories and care for your children. Nursery and Preschool classes are offered during both the 9:30 and 10:55 worship services/classes.
(Kindergarten – 5th Grade) can go to SPLASH! During the 9:30 session Sunday mornings the energy is high and the fun is abundant. Our LifeGuards teach Bible stories and character lessons in large group creative ways. Students break into small groups for life application. This session includes singing and games and plenty of surprises. During the 10:55 session kids are broken into age-specific groups with activities and lessons geared for each group.
Our intention is to make children’s programming a place where kids WANT to come and learn about God and the Bible!
