Kids Ministry

Infants to 5th Grade
Our Kids Ministry is committed to “Growing Children in Christ.” We believe every child should have the opportunity to “grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). Our desire is to help children grow to love Jesus, to live like Jesus and to live for Jesus!

Sunday Mornings & Security
We take the security of the children in our care very seriously. Parents, please stop by the Checkpoint Station at the entrance to the Education Wing and we will create a name badge for your child and assign them to the appropriate class. From there we can direct you to that class or answer any questions that you may have.

For more information about our seasonal events and our Sunday Bible Classes, please visit our Kids Ministry page.

Kids Sunday School

Kid’s Sunday School and Preschool classes are available at the 9:45 AM service only.

Because we will be practicing social distancing and space is limited, registration is requested for children to attend Sunday School. You may register your child for Kids Sunday School when you sign-up to attend in-person worship. More info will be posted soon on Facebook, Instagram (so be sure to give us a like/follow) and at the Kids Ministry webpage.

NOTE: Direct entrances to the Education Wing from the parking lot will not be available. You must enter the Education Wing from the Lobby.

Summer Camp

Summer Camp is one of the best things about summer vacation — and it’s even more fun when you can go with a friend! Camp dates for Round Lake Christian Camp have been announced and registration will begin on February 17. Parents, if you want your kids to join us for summer camp, be sure to register early.

NOTE: a $10 deposit is required at the time of registration.

Blueprints

Blueprints are a kind of plan that helps engineers, architects, and drafters to know how a project should go. Plans are everywhere. Kids find plans at school, in their Lego sets, and even in their video games. But the best kind of plans are the ones that help us grow.

Through the life of Jesus, we’re going to find out that God’s plans are perfect, love is the foundation of God’s plans, that Jesus said yes to God’s plans, and most of all that we are included in God’s plans.

“Blueprints” is our curriculum for March 2021. Teaching videos, notes and coloring pages are available on our Kids Ministry page. If you would like to join us in-person on Sunday mornings, you may do so during the 9:45 AM service, but registration is requested.

Teaching videos and notes can be found on the Kids Ministry page!

Start Here

Kids have questions about a lot of things, including questions about Jesus and faith. How can we equip parents to have significant faith conversations at home? What if parents and kids just need a place to start?

The ‘START HERE’ class will help equip parents to lead their children to Christ as it helps to equip kids with four things they can do today (and every day) to know God: HEAR. PRAY. TALK. LIVE.

Join us on Sunday, March 7, 14, 21 & 28 from 4:30-5:45 PM as we START HERE. We recommend this class for all families with children aged 8-12 who have started thinking about following Jesus and have questions about baptism.

Parents, we encourage you to join us for the first and last Sunday of this class. All children wishing to participate need to be registered. Parents, if you plan to join us on the first and last Sunday of ‘Start Here’ please let us know in the Memo line of your registration.

Questions? Please contact Carrie Wiley.

Next Steps

This class is designed for kids who have taken the plunge (been baptized) and made the decision to follow Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

But… now what?

This class will help to answer that question as we equip kids to develop habits for growing in their faith. We will meet at the same day & time as the “Start Here” class (every Sunday in March at 4:30 PM).

Questions? Please contact Carrie Wiley.

Impact Opportunities

WCCYouth

Our Youth Ministry sees value and purpose in everyone. We are dedicated to helping students (6th-12 grade) to continue to mature in their faith by equipping them with the biblical knowledge, life lessons and healthy relationships that they will carry with them into college and further into adulthood.

Per the guidance offered by our government, the CDC, and our leadership at WCC, we are temporarily moving our services and programming online. But simply because we aren’t meeting physically doesn’t mean we won’t do everything in our ability to continue to minister to our students and families through the many digital platforms that we have access to.

PARENT COMMUNICATION FORM

Parents, you may have received a letter in the mail recently requesting updated info about your student. Why are we asking for this? Because it is our goal to always provide you with the best information about WCCYouth and communicate that message to you as clearly as possible.

Please fill out our information form today! Thanks!

College-Age

Young Adults (18- to 23-years old)

Sunday Morning:
Before the world adopted social distancing rules due to COVID-19, our college-age students met at 9:45 in rm. 160 every Sunday morning. During this casual meeting, we use a discussion format to learn applicable teaching from God’s Word. Our college-age students are in the midst of all kinds of life transition and this group is a way to connect with people in the same phase of life! Our group also gathers throughout the year for events including summer cookouts, Christmas party, etc.

Our Young Adults group is not currently meeting on-campus. However, if you are in college, trade-school, or have begun work right after High School and would like to learn more about us and how we’re meeting now, please contact Patti Remaklus.
