To partner with parents and support families in reaching children and helping them become devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
To Supplement the family and partner with parents
The Kidsplash program is not a substitute for the family, because the Bible teaches that the parents should have the primary responsibility for their kids spiritual upbringing. The program will partner with parents in providing child-targeted worship and fellowship. It will also provide resources to encourage and help parents with their God-given responsibility.
in reaching children
Following Jesus's command in Matthew 28, we want children to understand and respond positively to the Gospel. We want children to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior: friend forever.
and helping them become devoted followers of Jesus Christ
Following Jesus 's command in Matthew 28, we want to make disciples out of the children who attend our program. A disciple, or a fully devoted follower, is someone who worships and loves God, has a genuine interest in reading and applying the Bible, desires to pray and be in fellowship with other believers, and has a passion to tell others about Jesus.Click here to register

Check In/Out Information
When bringing children to Waves, the adult responsible for each child is asked to fill in the necessary information on the sign in sheet provided. All children will be given a name tag and tag for their belongings. The name tags provide us with very important information such as food allergies, and special needs. When you arrive to pick up your child, make sure you gather all of their belongings.
Parents are encouraged to participate in the caring and teaching of our children. Our church takes large strides to make certain that our children are revered in the way Jesus intended, that coming to church is a happy occasion. We have a screening procedure for all people who have regular contact with our children. These procedures include criminal background checks and reference checks. Please contact Rosemary Bertin at 719-588-6304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer or if you have any questions/concerns.Click here to register
