At Waterview, Kids are Important!
“You have known the Holy Scriptures ever since you were a little child. They are able to teach you how to be saved by believing in Christ Jesus.”
2 Timothy 3:15 NIRV
Our mission in Children’s Ministry:
We want kids grow in knowledge, and in their relationship with God and with others. By using the most up to date teaching methods, classes will be exciting place for kids to be and a place that they will want to bring their friends. Through interactive learning we instill that God’s word is the truth and is as relevant for us today as the day it was first written.
JourneyLand for Elementary School Children
Each week, children go to Bible class in a different workshop. Over the course of 6 weeks, each child will go through 6 different teaching approaches all focused on the same unit of study from scripture. They cook, perform science experiments, make crafts, look at maps, act out the Biblical accounts, hear the story told to them, sing songs about scripture, and play interactive games designed to make application of the scripture.
Learning the Bible becomes enjoyable and it sticks!
The 66 Club is a program designed to instill basic Bible knowledge that promotes a Biblically-centered life in our young people. For more information click here.
A child becomes a member of the “66 Club” by being able to speak or write the 66 books of the Bible. They will receive a certificate that recognizes them as being a member of the club. Each successive year (up to the fourth grade) that they are able to say the 66 books, they will receive a gold seal to be placed on their “Member” certificate.

Artists and Murals
There is a group of older Christians who have used their talents to help build our children’s ministry. There is an art class that meets at the building weekly to paint. That class has taken their time and talent and invested it in our children’s ministry here at Waterview by painting several beautiful murals that we have on display in the Pre-K hallway for all to see.
