Our desire is that each child would encounter Jesus, understand that they have a part to play in releasing the Kingdom of God here on earth, and be empowered to live boldly as disciples of Jesus.
There is no Junior Holy Spirit
LW Kids exist to see kids learn to walk with God from a young age. Beth Moore has said that she didn’t have a salvation experience, rather she had week after week in children’s ministry at Sunday school. That’s the prayer for all the kids attending LW Kids- that they would understand God’s deep love for them and never remember a life apart from Him.
The LW Kids team works hard at creating an environment that is safe for kids to practice listening to God’s voice and where taking risks with Jesus is celebrated. Kids are led through a curriculum that gives room for them to both learn about who God is and experience Him personally.
The goal is that kids would experience God by hearing His voice, know him as Healer, and know that His power can move through them no matter how old they are. Kingdom Kids is a ministry for kids from 6mo.-5th grade that meets during our Sunday gathering times.
We are thrilled to have a new curriculum for our preschool and elementary age kids! We have been praying and researching new curriculum for the past few months and I believe that ORANGE curriculum is an excellent fit for our Teachers and kids! Orange has a plan for the year with resources every week! Our classrooms will continue to have engaging learning experiences, fun large and small groups activities and useable resources to make the truths of the Bible come alive for our kids!
One huge emphasis that Living Waters has for our Kids Ministry in 2022 is to have even better partnership with parents and families! We believe that combining church and home will influence and make a greater impact on our kids, families and community. This curriculum has take home resources that we will put into your hands to make it easy to bridge the gap from Sundays to the weekly activities of your family!
And there is more! If your family joins through our on-line community on Sundays, there will now be a link to access activities and lessons for your kids through our new curriculum!
Our greatest desire is for Jesus to make Himself known to us, and through us – starting with our kids and our homes! As we begin this new season of collaboration between Church and Home, we are looking forward to all that is in store for our kids and this church family!

OUR Core Values
Delighting in His Children
Every Child Matters
Just like Jesus went out of his way for the one, we have an opportunity every week to engage with each kid in a way that says, “who you are matters” and “God delights in you”.
Every Child is Unique
We believe that there are things about the heart of God that can only be discovered by being with children. In Matthew 18:3-4, Jesus flipped the cultural paradigm of power upside-down. He spoke of the hope of the Gospel to the poor and hurting, but he specifically identified the importance of children.
Dreaming with god
Every Child Has a Purpose
We believe that there are things inside of each child that God has put there. Gifts, talents, passions, and abilities that can be tapped into for the purposes of the Kingdom. It is our privilege to walk with kids as they discover the unique things that lie within them.
We are committed to learning about the heart of God through childlikeness.
Join the team
We know the best way for us to grow back together on a Sunday morning is to relaunch Sunday LW Kids classes!
We are happy to announce that Kingdom Kids classes start this weekend, January 31st, allowing more of our families to join us while providing some much needed social and spiritual interaction for our kids! Be sure to RSVP.
The first few Sundays back will have a slightly condensed format (K-5th) as we rebuild the team and work within safety measures for our gatherings! When Jackson County moves to a less restricted tier, we will open up more age group options for families (if we have the volunteer team in place to do so!)
How can you help? The very best way to help us get back to a full slate of Kingdom Kids classes is to jump onto the Kingdom Kids team with us. If you have been on our Kingdom Kids Team in the past or would like to join the team as we launch a fresh season.
Thank you for considering joining our team!
Obviously, we are in a unique season where the reality of Covid and the restrictions in place has many people on our regular LW Kids team unable to serve in their usual volunteer role. Our goal right now is to provide a safe environment where kids can encounter Jesus, have fun social interaction, feel completely welcomed and loved! We cannot do any of that without an incredible volunteer team!
