THE CHURCH OF TODAY
Many times kids and students are seen as the "future", leading the world of tomorrow. We believe that yes, they will be leading in the future but they can also lead the church of today. Our kids and students can be on mission in their schools and with their friends and be a part of God's mission TODAY.

Surf City is dedicated to and designed for kids.
From birth through fourth grade, kids thrive in a fun and safe environment built for them to learn about Jesus and grow in their relationships with Him. As your partners we take our role seriously; to help your child believe that Jesus loves them, to develop love for others, to start a relationship with Jesus and to live out that relationship in daily life.
Littles (birth-2 yrs.)
From the moment you check in your child to the time you pick up him or her, your child is individually loved and cared for—so you can relax and enjoy Watermark’s Gathering. (We’ll come find you if any need arises. We promise.)
Surf City Jr. (3-5 yrs.)
After you visit the registration desk, our team is eager to engage with your child as he or she enjoys playing with other kids, singing songs, listening to a Bible story, creating a craft masterpiece and other interactive activities. (Make sure you call it a “masterpiece!”)
Surf City Kids (Kindergarten-4th Grade)
Kids receive their name-tag at the registration desk and then enter a world of fun. In a large group with all the other children, your child will experience a creative Bible lesson and fun interaction. Then we split into age-divided small groups, each with a guide who will lead an interactive discussion and other activities to support the morning’s Bible story. Our guides are very intentional to build relationships with kids, pray for them and encourage them as they discover Jesus. (Sunday lunch discussion idea: “What did you learn at Surf City today?”)
So, what’s Moto all about? What does it even mean? I’m glad you asked! First of all, Moto means movement, which is what we are all about. We are a movement of middle school students (5th – 8th) that are learning to love God and love others.
What's Moto Like?
Moto is a high-energy environment that is not for the faint of heart… not quite, but it is super fun. We show crazy videos, play some fun games, worship God through singing and dig into what it means to follow Jesus through teaching and group time. All you really need to know is you (or your student) will love it.
When is Moto?
We meet every Monday during the public school year from 7pm – 8:30pm at the Watermark Hub. We follow the Grand Haven Middle School calendar, so if there isn’t school, there isn’t Moto. This works for holidays, snow days and other cancellations. We also have some fun events throughout the year that you will find on the events calendar.
Bring a friend and come hang out with us.
Verge is more than an event for High School students, it's a community that is growing in what it means to follow Jesus, and Inviting other Students to see what that looks like for their own life. The verge is the edge, border, or approaching the end of something. We believe that this defines so many of our students who are in a fundamental time of their life where they build relationships, values, character and so much more. This time of their life is also the beginning of the end of a the childhood stage of life and into adulthood, independence, and maturity.
WE strive to Be
A Student Community who:
- Belong together!
- Become like Jesus!
- Reach high school students!
When does this happen?
Verge meets in student's houses Each Sunday Evening from 6:30 to 8:00. At Verge we seek to be a close community that can connects with one another and develop strong bonds. Meeting in houses not only gives our community a family feel up also allows students families to participate and Host the group!

To encourage and support students as they purposefully pursue Christ in the place where they are at and encourage them to intentionality influence and connect the people around them.
