It is an exciting time for our Children's Ministry and WCC Kids! We want to equip families to understand more fully what it means to be "joined in God's pursuit of restoring lives." From our weekly Kidz Konnect to Marriage Classes to Family Empowerment Events (FEE) designed to model what it looks like to have meaningful times of devotion and worship at home, we want to serve our parents in creative ways so they become the disciple-makers Jesus intended. All of our Children's Ministry servants are passionate about children. And in order to be wise stewards of our children's precious lives, we ask that all people working with our children submit to a background check.
As a ministry we want to make sure every child that comes into our presence knows and feels the love of Christ in and through us, and hears and sees the Gospel working among us. This means that loving our leading children is not just a weekend approach. It is relationship bound together in a Kingdom-shaped lifestyle and grounded in the Gospel of King Jesus. So in WCC's Children's ministry everything we do is driven by relationship, God's kingdom and His gospel.
As for our weekend gatherings, here are two primary ways we seek to accomplish our vision:
Nursery: Our nursery provides a safe, comfortable, inviting atmosphere for children ages birth to 23 months. Nursery leaders pray over and tend to every child. We also offer a notification system for children who may need their parents during service times.
Kids Konnect: This is our teaching & worship gathering for both worship gathering. Children begin with an exciting time of praise & worship. They are then taught the Bible-based "Big Idea" (the Message), which is communicated to the children in such a way as to connect with each child's learning style (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic). Finally, we invite the children to embrace an "Act of Compassion" (the Mission), which we will carry out together over the course of the current quarter. After Praise & Worship, Big Idea and Mission, the children move into age appropriate Small Groups for deeper learning and hands-on activities that center around the Big Idea.
