We believe fostering a personal faith in Jesus Christ in children is one of the most important parts of being a community church. There are many available ministries created for each and every age group, from nursery to sixth grade.

Birds and Bees, Oh Help Me Please!
Begins Wednesday, March 18 at 6 p.m.
Instead of growing up without any knowledge of ‘the birds and the bees’, what if children grew up knowing the value and purposes of sex? What if they understood the design of birth, conception, and reproduction? And better yet, what if they learned this from conversations with the people who love them the most? We believe parents can be prepared, encouraged, and equipped for these conversations. Join Michelle Tempesta for this six week class for parents that offers a simple and extremely effective six-step strategy that takes their knowledge from that of preschool to that of a preteen. Registration is required, cost is $10 per family. Workbooks will be available for purchase in the bookstore, but are not required.
KidsJam/Kcrew Family Event
Sunday, March 22
WCKids is excited to host another KidsJam/KCrew event to spread kindness in our community. After a pizza lunch, we will work on a fun activity. The playground will be open for fun and fellowship following the activity. Join us monthly at Wesley Café on Sundays at 12:15 p.m.

Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King’s Armor Vacation Bible School
Students entering kinder-4th grade are invited to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of God’s power by exploring how we put on the armor of God. VBS kids will explore Old and New Testament stories and discover different pieces of protective armor—the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation—at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.
Club 56 VBX - Mustard Seed Faith
Students entering 5th & 6th grade will learn how faith can move mountains. VBX is a completely different program that allows preteens to delve further into the Bible, yet still have fun with wacky games, crafts and worship.

Humanity Missions is a monthly opportunity for third and fourth graders to join together and work on mission-based service projects. Teaching children about the needs of the world, and their ability to help, helps kids grow up with an awareness of God’s command to share the Gospel and serve those in need.
