What Happens

at Wawasee Kids?

We’re glad you asked!

Week to week things will vary a bit, but below are a few of the things you can count on every Sunday.

Large Group Teaching

Every week we have engaging, age-appropriate teaching that will help the truth of God’s Word come alive in young hearts.

We’ll make sure kids know they’re loved by Jesus and can trust him no matter what. Because Jesus loves us, we should love others and learn to always make wise choices.

Small Group Community

Each morning kids in Grades 1 through 5 will spend time in age-based small groups.

In their small group, trained Kids’ Ministry Leaders will help them dig deeper into the truths they learn that morning through discussion, age-appropriate activities, Scripture exploration, and prayer. In addition, kids will learn to care for each other and live in community with others from a young age.

Musical Worship

Each week kids will spend time in age-appropriate musical worship.

The music is always about Jesus. We sing to him and learn Scripture through song.

Sometimes we’ll have live musicians leading the kids in song. Other times we’ll have guest bands like the Rizers! (Check ’em out below!)

Fun!

We place a high value on having fun in our Kids’ Ministry!

Our God is good Father who loves his kids. We want to communicate that in every way we can so that children grow up to know and love Jesus, because he first loved us!

 

How Does Wawasee Kids Work?

Age-Based

Wawasee Kids is divided into two primary groups, Pre-K and Kindergarten and Grades 1 thru 4. These age-divisions are made primarily with literacy development in mind. Most kids start becoming semi-independent readers by Grade 1. Scroll down to see what happens at each age division.

Vertically Aligned

The curriculum we use is vertically aligned. What this means is that kids in each age group will be learning the same core truths each week,  tailored to best serve that particular age group.

In addition, that means that at home during the week, families can have unified discussion and study with their kids of multiple ages.

Grades 1 to 4
