Welcome to DeepWater Kids!

Here at DeepWater we are passionate about the next generation.  As a faith family we are committed to investing in children on Sundays and our goal is that your child would excitedly ask throughout the week "Is today church day?!"  We want children at DeepWater to be encouraged by volunteers, enjoy time with friends, learn more about the Good News and God's Word and have lots of fun doing all of these things.  

We also desire to encourage parents and grandparents to lead their children spiritually and make faith meaningful in the home.  We look forward to welcoming you and your child to be a part of the DW Kids Ministry. 

DeepWater Kids Ministry meets each* Sunday during the 5pm worship service.  Children 5K-5th grade will join the adults in the worship service beginning at 5pm and will participate in the opening worship song, announcements, and normally another worship song.  Having our older children in the service allows them to worship alongside their parents/grandparents and for us to join the generations.

  *On the 5th Sundays of the year and for certain holidays (Christmas & Easter) we do not have 5K-5th grade ministry, but instead have our children in the main worship service.  


Hey, thank you so much for checking out our Kid's Ministry page!

I'm Jo (on the left)!

I couldn’t be more excited to be able to work and hang out with your kiddos!!  

Some fun facts about me… I am an Isle of Palms native and have lived here for most of my life. I attended Wando High school and went on to study at Clemson University and graduated May of 2019 with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Recreational Therapy. After graduation, God called me to DeepWater in the summer of 2019 and it has been a joy to help serve the DeepWater Kids on many Sunday afternoons ever since! I have a passion to lead, teach and build the foundation of the next generation... and have lots of fun in the process! I am in charge of the Elementary (K-5) kids on Sundays. 

And I'm Chandler (on the right)! I grew up in Mt. Pleasant and just graduated from Anderson University in May 2021 with a degree in Worship Leading. Upon graduating, God called me intern at DeepWater in the summer of '21 and has led me to stay to help run and lead DeepWater in various capacities - namely Children's Ministry! I am in charge of the Pre-K and under kids on Sundays! 

We are both pumped to serve and partner with you and your family. We look forward to hopefully meeting you soon! 

In the mean time, please read our Q&A section below or contact our team if you have any questions or would like to arrange to meet on a Sunday before things get started at dwkids@deepwaterchurch.cc


How early can I check my child-in?

Check-In starts at 4:45

Who will be watching the children?

Our “Crew Members” (volunteers) will be watching children each Sunday. All Crew are required to have a secure background check and pass Ministry Safe training online before able to serve with the children. 

How many Crew Members will be assigned per child?

Our ratios are as follows…

Babies: 1 Adult: 2 Babies

Walkers: 1 Adult: 3 Walkers

Toddlers: 1 Adult: 4 Toddlers

Elementary: 1 Adult: 5 Students

How are the rooms divided?

Babies (non-walking), Walkers (walking - 2), 

Toddlers (3s-4s), Elementary (5K - 5th grade).

What is your safety procedure?

We use a security sticker process. Upon Check-In, one parent will receive a sticker and the same sticker will go on the child’s back. When picking a child-up a Crew Member will ask for your sticker and make sure the unique security code on the parent and child sticker match before giving the child away. If someone other than the parent is picking up the child, just let the Check-In Crew know and we will make arrangements!

What will go on during Children’s Ministry?

DeepWater Kids uses Orange curriculum for our lessons on Sundays. The different age groups watch an age appropriate video or skit, have the lesson read, taught or reviewed from the Bible, followed by a short small group discussion time and activity/craft. There will also be time for Goldfish and free play on the playground! At DW Kids, we LOVE to sing our hearts out to God - there will be time integrated for our children to sing and dance.

How do I get my child involved with DW Kids?

On Sunday’s come to the Check-In table and let a Crew Member know you’re new to the church! We will have you fill out some basic information, show you around our ministry area, and guide your child into their assigned room.

Will there be snacks?

Yes! We will be serving Goldfish. If your child cannot eat Goldfish or if you prefer them to have a different snack, please let a Check-In Crew Member or Jo know and we will make accommodations. You’re always welcome to provide alternate snacks in a diaper bag, or in a Ziplock with their name on it!

What additional opportunities are offered kids?

Great question!  During the school year we are looking to have a few events or gathering for our children and we will publish those dates to parents.
