children's ministry

Our mission in Family Ministry is to partner with parents and families to guide children and youth into a life-long faith. One way we do that is through regular faith formation activities for our children!  Tidepool is the children's ministry program at Still Waters. We offer activities and teaching for pre-kindergarten through grade five while parents and others are participating in regular church services in the sanctuary on Sunday at 9:00 am.  Children should be taken to classrooms in the education wing before the worship service begins. The children will be brought into worship towards the end of the service for Children's Message and then dismissed to their parents.

    This week in Tidepool:

  • Bible Boot Camp - 3rd Grade

    A “boot camp” is where you go to learn the skills you need to prepare for a job. Our third grade students take an important step on the road to becoming a disciple by receiving their first Bible as a gift from the church. The goal of Bible Boot Camp is to help students become comfortable in turning to the Bible for guidance. In Bible Boot Camp, students learn to use the table of contents and scripture references as guides to some of the wonderful stories and wisdom contained in both the Old and New Testaments. As we progress through the Bible, students learn key verses that help them grow in their understanding of what God expects from them and what God will do for them. 


    3rd Grade Bible Presentation: September 18 at 9:00 am service


    Today in Bible Bootcamp:

  • PIER 45 - grades 4-5

    Somewhere between leaving childhood behind and treading wide-eyed into the teenage years lurk a thousand bewildering questions.  Where did God come from?  How come I'm not perfect? Why doesn't everyone go to Heaven?  Preteens' toughest questions - the Bible's smartest answers.
