What weekly meetings are offered for 6-8th graders?
Grades 6-8 meet weekly for "Wake" on Sundays at 11:00 am in Stage 4 at Watermark Plano. Grade, gender, and regional specific Small Groups meet in various homes on Wednesday nights.
How does drop-off and pick-up work?
For this age group, we allow parents and students to coordinate whatever plan works best for their family. Most parents allow their students to make their way to Stage 4 specified meeting place to reconnect after the service. Some parents bring their students over to Stage 4 and return to pick them up. There is no official check-in/check-out system for grades 6-8.

How do students get connected mid-year?
Students can sign up for Small Groups by filling out an Info Form online or at Wake. We will immediately add newcomers to the Small Group that makes the most sense based on geography, schools, and friendships. Volunteer leaders will connect via phone or email with new students/parents with information about meeting times and locations.
What role do parents play in Watermark Students?
The best things parents can do is to connect with and invest in their student's leaders. Invite them into your family and include them as a trusted partner in your parenting adventure.
Who are the volunteers that are leading Small Groups?
Our Students team is comprised of individuals who are committed to investing in the lives of students for a number of years. All of our leaders are young adults or young marrieds in their 20's or 30's who are members or in the process of becoming members at Watermark Community Church. To ensure the well-being of our students, each leader has completed an application, interview, and background check. They have answered questions about their testimony, family, personality, and current relationship with the Lord as well as any history of exposure to abuse, alcohol, or drugs. Applicants are also required to submit at least two references with their application.
