Early Childhood 

Here children (birth through pre-k) grow in their faith through relationships and fun activities. Our lessons have a monthly theme and Bible verse that help children know that:

  • God made them.
  • God loves them. 
  • Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

The Nursery and Toddler rooms allow for active development and growth with loving and nurturing adults and teens who share God’s love. Children ages 2-5 are very busy having fun.  They hear a Bible lesson. They may also play games, do a craft, sing songs, and eat a snack.


From the time your elementary age (K-5) arrives, our hope is that they will have one of the best hours of their week.  Kids are grouped by grade level and during large group time they will experience engaging music and hear the Bible presented in such a way that it comes to life.  In small group they will have a chance to connect to the lesson, their peers, and their small group leader through activities, games and prayer.

We desire to see kids build a relationship with God through Jesus Christ that will last forever.

At the elementary level we focus on three basic truths:

  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I need to make the wise choice.

I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

​​​Child Dedications

Are you a parents of children birth - age 4?  Interested in having your child dedicated in an upcoming service? This is when you commit to be the primary influence with the help of the church family to teach your child to follow Christ. The next opportunity for Child Dedications will be the weekend of January 18-19 across our campuses (your child can be dedicated at any location). 

Contact Victoria Willis (vwillis@watermarkwesleyan.com) for more information. 

Serving With  Watermark Kids

What if a best way for a kid to know God is to know someone who knows God?  Serving with Watermark Kids is a great way to impact these young lives...and it doesn't take a certified teaching degree to do so!  Interested? Contact Victoria Willis (vwillis@watermarkwesleyan.com) for more information.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. 

We're taking part in this effort here at Watermark Wesleyan!  Boxes are now available for you to fill and return to the church!  You can pick them up before or after services near the Connection Center at each of our locations.  Completed boxes are due back to the church no later than November 10.
