WE Kids Ministry for children in K-5th Grades

At The Water’s Edge, WE love kids! On any given Sunday, you will see a group of volunteers passionate about not only teaching kids the Bible, but helping to lead them into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. By working alongside parents, we are able to continue the lessons beyond Sunday morning.

At the Water’s Edge, we believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ can begin with even the youngest of kids. Each Sunday, our preschool aged kids engage in lessons and activities designed to introduce them to God and incite a sense of wonder about who He is and how He loves us.

Elementary aged kids are in a constant state of discovery. Each day, they are learning and connecting experiences with the world around them. Each Sunday, through the use of both Small Group and Large Group activities, our Elementary Kids are being invited to learn about their relationship with God and how to live it out.

WE Kids meets every Sunday morning during both our 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM worship service. WE also have other special events throughout the year such as VBS and Summer Camp!

WE Kids Programs Beyond Sunday


Third Grade Bible Presentation

At The Water’s Edge, WE believe it is important that the church and the family work in partnership to help grow a child’s faith. We present our third grade students with new Bibles every fall. It’s a tradition that kids and parents look forward to each and every year. As part of this, WE will be provide parents with tools they can use to help their child learn to navigate and gain a better understanding of the Bible.

Our 2019 Third Grade Bible Presentation will happen on September 15th at both out 9:00 AM and 10:30 AM services. To ensure have an adequate number of Bibles on-hand, WE ask that you register your child prior to the event.
