We believe that following Jesus Christ to lead lives that reveal God’s goodness begins with Biblical teachings in a fun and creative way for elementary children. Please join us each week as we discover God’s goodness and build community where life change happens.

Every weekend, 3rd-6th graders have the opportunity to participate in our Sanctuary worship by symbolically "bringing in the light" at the beginning of worship and "carrying the light out into the world" at the end of worship. This is a centuries-old tradition in the Christian Church called Acolyte. Children who have signed up and gone through Acolyte training are placed on teams throughout the year.
The children's choirs meet on a weekly basis on Wednesday evenings. The Carol Choir, Kindergarten - Third Grade, is at 5:00 - 5:45 p.m. and the Chorister Choir, Fourth - Sixth Grade, is at 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. Sign up today! For more info, click here.

WATCH ministers to the needs of working parents and their families. Parents need quality after-school care for their elementary-age children. The goal is not to duplicate the clubs and athletic activities already available to children but to be a welcoming, homelike place where children will not only be safe, but where they can relax and be assured of their special place in God's world. WATCH provides bus transportation for children from the following elementary schools: Newport Heights, Woodland, Kaiser and Mariners.
