Watermark Kids is a place where all kids are welcomed and taught about Jesus in a safe and secure environment. To keep your kids safe and healthy, we’ve implemented new registration and health protocols, including:
We can’t wait to serve your family again. See the FAQ below to find out more about how we are taking new measures to keep Watermark kids, families, leaders, and staff safe and secure.

You will register for Midweek Kids Ministry through the ministry event you are attending. For example, if you are attending re:generation on Monday night, you sign up for Kids Ministry at watermark.org/regen. We are currently only offering Midweek Kids Ministry on Monday evenings.
As we continue to onboard more Watermark Kids volunteers registration allows us to make sure we have enough volunteers to care for our kids each weekend. Registration opens Tuesday morning at 6 AM and closes Friday evenings. You can find a link to registration each week at watermark.org/kidsupdate.
Registered families will receive an email on Saturday morning to confirm your registration. If, for any reason, your child is no longer able to attend, you will have the opportunity to cancel your registration. Please take advantage of this capability to open up space for other families who would like to attend. If you need to cancel your registration before Saturday morning, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit the registration page on Saturdays at 12PM to see if any new spots have become available. Still full? We will still offer our weekly coloring sheet and sermon notes page designed specifically for our Watermark Kids to take with them into “big church.” And don’t forget, the Watermark Kids Kit is available online every week for you to lead your family through our weekend curriculum together at home.
Clean hands and clean classrooms have always been a priority for Watermark Kids.
As usual, preschool classrooms are sanitized between uses, and cleaning protocols are posted in every classroom to guide cleaning procedures.
Yes. We want to do our best to screen for observable symptoms. As has been our policy for many years, individuals with persistent cough, fever, headache, or sore throat will be asked not to participate in Watermark Kids until they have been fever free (unmedicated) for 24 hours, symptoms have ceased, and at least one week has passed since the start of symptoms.
All elementary kids will be dropped off in classrooms. When elementary kids gather for large group time in assembly rooms, classes are kept separate using designated space for each class. During weekend ministries, preschool kids will check in to their classrooms as normal. Classes will travel to the theater rooms for storytelling and will be kept separate from other classrooms using designated spaces.
Midweek Kids Ministry will decrease the amount of transitions from classrooms to other locations (i.e. assembly rooms) for preschool and elementary. Classes will be kept separate using designated spaces for each small group in assembly rooms when gathered for teaching. Multiple classes will be together when using the outdoor playground or assembly rooms for activities. As always, all kids will be dropped off and picked up in individual classrooms.
Families and leaders in individual classes will be notified if we are informed about a positive COVID case in a specific class. This is also true for other illnesses, like flu, HFM, etc.
