Welcome to Clear Water Kids!
We value children and typically serve infants through fifth grade students during the worship services. With the current municipal restrictions and resulting limitations, our children's church will be held in the Wendler gym at 9:30 AM Sundays and serve children preschool-aged through fifth grade. Younger children are welcome in the main worship service.
Our mission is to provide excellent care for children and point them toward Christ. Jesus said, "Let the little children com to me and do not hinder them for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14)
Nursery provides loving care for littles ones. Preschool engages those aged three through kindergarten with play, a Bible story, and activity or craft. Elementary kids, first through fifth grades, participate in the first 15-20 minutes of the worship service before heading to a teaching experience designed just for them.
The most convenient place for parents to park is at Wendler's back entrance which is accessible from Northern Lights Boulevard. This puts you in closest proximity to the children's check-in table once you enter the building.
Check in your children as early as 15 minutes prior to the service. Provide each child's name and age and your mobile number. If you need to be contacted during the service, we will text you. Each child and parent receives a name tag with a unique number. Please wear the name tag with the corresponding number to ensure that only you can pick up your child.
Also, check in your elementary child even though they sit with you for the first part of the worship service. A teacher will escort them back to the worship space at the end of the service.
Please let us know if your child has an allergy at check in. We will provide an allergy sticker for your child to wear so that the classroom workers will be aware. No food is allowed in the classrooms.
If possible, please take your child to the restroom prior to drop off. Restrooms are located down the children's hall. This is especially important for children who are potty training. A team member will text you so that you can take your child to the restroom if needed during the service.
What to Expect
Two adult team members in each classroom.
