Biblical Basis

Overview

When it comes to children and youth ministry, we know that kids thrive when they are given age-specific programs that are both fun and educational. Watts Chapel is a place where kids love to come week after week. Our mission is simply to provide a safe and loving environment that allows youth to develop in an age appropriate manner. To do this we strive to incite WONDER, provoke DISCOVERY, and fuel PASSION in the heart of every child. These interlocking essentials are a part of a key strategy we use to partner with you as parents on a journey from birth through college. Our goal is to help kids see God for who He is and to see themselves the way God sees them so they can love others the way God loves them.

To help ensure a safe & secure environment for all children, all of our Children and Youth teachers and volunteers and Staff undergo a background check and receive regular training throughout the year.

Worship and Learn with us!

Children’s Church takes place during both corporate worship experiences on second, fourth, and fifth Sundays in the Multipurpose Room.

AWANA Youth Ministry at Watts Chapel

AWANA stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and comes from the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” AWANA begins on the second Wednesday of September.

Awana is a fun filled children’s program for children and youth. The night is filled with three segments, fun and exciting games, small group time, and an interactive large group segment. Awana teaches children that God is real, He loves them and He has expressed that love through His Son, Jesus Christ. Kids also learn how God can help them in their daily lives. Bible-based lessons teach them how to obey God in a complex world.

The goal of Awana is to give boys and girls the chance to know, love and serve God. While it’s serious mission, we believe having fun in the process is a great tool for reaching young people. Since 1950, churches have used Awana to extend God’s love to kids. It is a proven way for churches to impact their communities and train children for leadership.

AWANA AT HOME

We are currently dealing with a significant emergency in our nation and world. In consideration of the recent declaration of a global pandemic, along with strong advisement from our Governor and health officials, Watts Chapel has decided to change to an AT HOME model for our youth.
