Children's Ministries

At WEPC, we believe Scripture clearly teaches that children are important and should receive excellent care and education (Proverbs 22:6 & Matthew 19:14).  All ages are offered engaging, age-appropriate teaching, fun activities and compassionate care as they are encouraged to learn about the Bible and to fall in love with Jesus. All of this is done in a secure environment to provide safety and peace of mind for parents.
 

Nursery | Sunday mornings, 8:30 am, 9:45 am & 11:00 am

The nursery is located in room 202, and is open to children from infant through age 3. Parents should check in at the table located in the main lobby.  Click check-in system for more details. While in the nursery during the second service, toddlers will be given a short age-appropriate Bible lesson.  

Kids Worship | Sunday mornings, 8:30 am & 11:00 am

During the worship services, children from age 3 through 4th grade are invited to join Kids Worship. Parents should check-in at the table located in the main lobby. Click here for details on the check-in system. Children in this age group, are encouraged to participate with the rest of the church family for the first half of the worship service (during the singing.) At this point, the pastor will invite the children to the front of the sanctuary for a short Kids’ Chat.  From there, a leader of Kids Worship will take them to the gym for a short lesson and some games.  

PeeWee Praise | Sunday mornings, 11:00 am

This group for preschool-aged children is available during the 2nd service, and meets in room 203.  Similar to Kids Worship, children are encouraged to stay with parents during the first half of the service before the Kids’ Chat. If parents do not feel the preschooler is ready to participate in the service, child care will be available in room 203 during the first part of the service. After the Kids’ Chat, a leader will take any who are in the service to room 203 for songs, crafts, a short Bible lesson, and games.  Parents should pick them up from this room after the worship service.  

Children’s Sunday School | Sunday morning, 9:45 am

Just like every age group at WEPC, the children’s classes are meant to help students learn Gospel truths and how to better apply them to daily life. Any children who go to Sunday school from the 1st service Kids Worship will be taken there by one of the leaders.  If you arrive for Sunday school before attending the 2nd service, one of the ushers would be happy to direct you to the appropriate classroom(s).  

Kids’ Choir | Wednesdays, 4:30-5:30 pm

Any child in Kindergarten through 6th grade who is interested in learning worship arts is invited to join the Kids’ Choir. The choir practices a variety of worship arts including singing, drama, dancing, rhythm instruments, art, and much more. Once a year, the choir presents a musical.
