Children at WCF

WCF’s Children’s Ministry exists to partner with parents, providers, youth, other WCF commissions and the congregation at large to teach children from Scripture and by example the realities and responsibilities of Christ-centered redeemed lives. We emphasize nurturing discipleship, affirming, empowering and celebrating children in every step of their spiritual journey. We mutually encourage all persons involved in children’s ministry to draw near to God in worship and to build strong reconciling relationships through every aspect of our community.

Children’s Worship-Time Programs

Children in Acorns (nursery-age) are welcome to go upstairs starting at 9:50am, before the start of the worship service. Children ages 2-5th grade join the congregation in a time of corporate praise and singing before they are dismissed
to their classes. Throughout the year, we have opportunities for the children to participate in the main worship
service through dance, drama, and singing.

The following classes are held every Sunday during the worship time:

Acorns (DOB: September 2013 or later)

Third Floor

Young children in the nursery are taken care of by a volunteer team led by experienced caregivers. 

Sprouts (DOB: January 2012-August 2013)

Third Floor

Saplings (DOB: 2010-2011)

Third Floor

Spend time with Sprouts and Saplings at WCF and you will certainly come away energized! We dance, color, sing, listen, play, smell, and even taste our way through Sunday mornings, using the popular ‘Hands On’ Bible curriculum (Yellow Level for Sprouts, Pink Level for Saplings) to explore stories and concepts from the Bible. Our emphasis is on basic familiarity with God as Father and as Son. We also introduce the children to the Bible and its main characters. Come join us—we always welcome new friends!

Oaks (Grades 1-5)

Second Floor

1st-5th grades use the Kid Connection curriculum from Faith Alive Resources. This curriculum is specifically designed for multi-age worship and learning. Kid Connection has a 4-year scope and sequence that takes students through a sweep of the whole Old and New Testament twice, exploring 117 key stories. After the central theme is presented each week, there is room to divide into smaller groups to delve into the theme at age appropriate levels.
