Children's Ministry

Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them, and teaching them God’s Word.

Wave Kids is an incredible place to bring your children, and watch them grow in love and relationship with Jesus. Here at Wave, we believe very strongly that our children are our greatest treasures, and the next generation of leaders. From infants to 12th graders, our goal is to equip each child with life-changing truths that will last a lifetime.

Wave Kids Age Groups

Nursery/Toddlers (ages 0-2)
Pre-K - Kindergarten (ages 3-6)
1st through 3rd Grade (ages 6-9)

InTents - 4th through 5th Grade
Student Ministries - 6th through 12th Grade


Children are checked-in at the Children's Ministry check-in table. New families need to register themselves (name, address, phone number is required) and their kids. A name tag is given to each child, and a corresponding tag given to the parents; those tags will be used to verify pick-up person with the classroom teachers for check-out.

Children are in classrooms with bathroom access that is only available for Wave Church use, and play on a secured playground. All teachers are required to submit to a thorough background check and must attend training. 

Biblical Teaching

Children and Youth curriculum varies between topics and books of the Bible.
