Clearwater KIDS Sunday morning happenings:
• 9:00 a.m. – KICKSTART. Classes for kids of all ages. Start your Sunday off right! Fun, friends, and some extra time with Jesus. Elementary kids will learn amazing things about God’s love in small groups. Our fabulous small group leaders Caleb, Anna, Zach and Jen help kids navigate their faith through relationship!

• 9:45 – 10:20 a.m. – Elementary KIDS Worship, Room 132. A fun and active time to experience biblical truths thorough modern-day worship music.

God loves kids! Here at Clearwater your child has his or her own special place to grow, make friends and discover God’s love for them, and we call this place Clearwater KIDS! You’ll feel comfortable with our clean, safe environments and screened, trained volunteers. We are here to partner with your family to help your children grow to know and love God. Children’s programs are offered during 9:00 a.m. adult classes and our 10:30 a.m. worship service.

Here in our elementary ministry, we desire to introduce the children to Jesus and see them look to him for everyday guidance in their lives. Our hope is that we can help be the spark that ignites a deeper sense of identity, belonging, and mission in each and every child we serve. Our curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in a personal relationship with Jesus, one that they can carry with them to school, the park and home.

What to Expect on Sunday
Your children will worship with you in the main sanctuary. After worship, an announcement will be made at the end of the songs to dismiss children to their group for children’s church. The kids will meet their teacher at the back of the sanctuary near the south door. You can pick your child up from the Elementary classroom located down the hallway directly across from the south sanctuary door. Contact Gay Kroening with any questions.

• KICKSTART life group class- where your child can laugh and play, learn and grow, develop friendships and community, and discover God’s great love for them. Meets at 9:00 a.m. in the elementary classroom.

• Children’s Worship- where your Elementary child can encounter God as they engage in fun age appropriate music which expresses their love for Jesus. Seeing children worship their Heavenly Father in spirit and truth is the greatest reward we could imagine and we believe it creates moments for them that they will never forget!

At Clearwater, we believe that we make the greatest impact on a child’s life when we partner with their parents. While we have about 40 hours a year to influence a child, a parent has over 3,000 hours a year. That’s why it’s so important to us that we give you the tools to reinforce the lessons from Sunday throughout the week. Below are some awesome resources to help you do that.

This blog is full of articles, podcasts, and other resources created specifically to help parents in the spiritual development of their children. There is practical and helpful content updated weekly.

The Parent CUE App
This app offers cues, such as songs, videos, and conversation starters to help parents reinforce the lessons that their kids learned on Sunday. In addition, a lot of the content from The Parent Cue website is available on the app as well. It costs $1.99 to purchase, but there are no recurring monthly or yearly charges.
