Our mission is to raise keiki to know their worth as God's children and to be shaped into their identity through encounters with God. We aim to provide a safe, loving environment where keiki can have fun and be themselves while learning about the Bible and discovering who God has called them to be.
At The Tidepool, we love providing a safe, clean place for your little ones birth - 2 years old to experience the best care while you enjoy the adult service distraction-free. We have tons of toys for your keiki to play with as well as a swing and a crib for nap time if needed. Because we want to provide an atmosphere where your babies learn that they are special and loved by God we carefully select our nursery workers to ensure we provide the quality nurturing your little ones need. For nursing moms, rocking chairs are available behind a curtain for privacy. The Tide Pool features a giant flat screen TV for playing fun worship music and for watching Bible-based videos.
The Reef is a place where your energetic preschoolers can have tons of fun while learning about Jesus’ love for them! Childcare is available for the duration of the whole service in our newly remodeled classrooms. Sundays at The Reef look like guided play time, keiki video worship involving fun motion songs using our beautiful flat screen TV’s, an interactive and exciting Bible storytelling experience, and crafts and activities to help reinforce what they’re learning about God each week. Your keiki will love it!
Your 1st - 5th grade keiki will enjoy every minute of their experience at The Harbor! Each week we create a keiki program that is packed with fun! From high-energy worship using videos on our flat screen TV to interactive and engaging Bible teaching using vibrant digital images, kids will learn that Jesus loves to have fun! We also love to play games in group settings, do crafts, and provide a snack during each service. Let us know if your keiki have any special needs or allergies and we will be careful to ensure they receive the best care. The best part is that we equip you, the parents and/or caretakers, with resources to help reinforce what they learned about God each Sunday at home! We can’t wait to hang out with your keiki this Sunday!
At this time, middle schoolers stay in service with the adults. Middle schoolers are also welcome to come to our Inversion youth group, catered to middle and high schoolers, on Thursday nights. For more info on that, just click here.
