Join us this week!
The WAVE Ministry is for birth through 6th grade. Through small groups, age-appropriate weekend environments and outreach events for kids, our goal is to engage kids with the gospel in a way that brings the Bible to life and makes it relevant to them right where they are. We believe ministry is done best in the context of relationships, and we know that our influence combined with a parent’s influence is the best way to encourage kids to grow in their relationship with Jesus. We commit to champion families to seek the Lord, to grow together, and to walk in a manner worthy of Christ.
What we offer you and your child?
- A partnership in creating spiritual habits in your child that will last a lifetime.
- Safety and security
- Age-appropriate curriculum and activities
- The message of Jesus Christ
SUNDAYS FOR THE PRESCHOOL DIVISION (BIRTH-K)
Our nursery has been designed to be a comfortable, safe and stimulating environment where God’s love is shared. We teach your children that God cares for them.
We believe it’s possible to share the love of Christ with each child from the day they are born. We want every young child to know 3 Basic Truths: God Made Me, God Loves Me, and Jesus wants to be my Friend Forever. They will engage in the Bible story through hands on activities, music, dynamic stories, and crafts at each weekend service.
SUNDAYS FOR THE ELEMENTARY DIVISION (1ST-6TH)
Our elementary classes are never boring, always exciting and guided by awesome leaders.
During the 9:15 AM service, kids are greeted at their individual classrooms by their leaders. The WAVE Ministry intentionally structures our elementary classrooms using Plug In Groups (small groups) because we believe life change most often takes place in the context of relationships. During our Plug In time, children will physically open the Bible to the lesson for the week and do dynamic, engaging activities that touch on multiple learning styles and help make the Bible sink into their hearts and minds.
During the 10:30 AM service, children will start out in the worship center with their parents (don't forget to check in!). Children will be dismissed during the welcome time to a custom-designed worship for kids called Energize. There, children will engage in drama, games, worship, biblical learning, and small groups for the remainder of the service.
We want every child to know 3 Basic Truths before they move up to middle school: I Can Trust God No Matter What, I Need to Make the Wise Choice, and I Should Treat Others the Way I Want to be Treated.
Energize For Grades 1-6 - Kids' Worship
- Energize takes place in the Youth Zone
- Get a security tag for your child at a check-in kiosk. They are located in the Children/Preschool Lobby and outside the Youth Zone.
- During the Contemporary Worship hour, all children will be escorted from the service directly to Energize. Parents can enjoy LifeGroups and Worship without the worry of picking up your child and dropping them off in another location.
- All children must be picked up from the Youth Zone after Energize is complete.
What is Energize?
Energize picks up when Sunday Morning Life Groups end. Your child will love this high energy worship service designed just for them!
- Live Action Bible lessons
- High energy music
- Small group activities
- Surprises, Bible games, and fun
Wednesday Nights for Kids
Mission Friends: Our preschool friends will enjoy their time in this class as they learn about missionaries around the world, play games, do crafts, and much more.
E-Kidz: Elementary students will come together for a time to take the lesson taught on Sunday to a deeper level. Before breaking up into small groups, children will watch a humorous retelling of the lesson. At the end of the night children will participate in our Kidz Choir, where they will get the chance to learn songs that will be later performed in Energize.
All teachers are required to submit to a thorough background check. In addition all teacher helpers must attend training.
