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!

Camp WE Kids VBS

What makes you wonder? What sparks your curiosity? What makes you want to explore, discover, and experiment? We are all naturally curious, but how can we harness that curiosity to wonder about the God who made us? When you’re curious about who God is, it’s easy to find ways to make your relationship with Jesus grow! That’s why, this summer, Camp WE Kids is engaging our imaginations as WE WONDER and get curious about God who created it all!
