Children’s Ministry

Our Children’s Ministry exists for one purpose: to help children grow in wisdom and stature, just like Jesus!

Our mission is to provide the best possible care, comfort, guidance and instruction in the Word of God for your children. Our adult volunteers work to demonstrate the love of God and life-changing principles to your children.

Each week, we offer Bible studies during Sunday School. We have many fun and educational events and programs for kids and families. During the summer months, we offer interactive children’s programs, like Vacation Bible Camp, Art Camp and Friendship Factory.

In addition to traditional Sunday activities for kids, Mother’s Morning Out (MMO), Weddington Christian Preschool and Weddington Christian Academy offer academic excellence in learning and spiritual formation on a weekday basis.

Trunk & Treat

Our first Trunk & Treat will take place on Wednesday, October 31 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. in the Family Life Center parking lot. All children are invited to stop by and visit all of the decorated cars and receive candy. we will have a bonfire and fun games to win even more candy. You can enjoy s’mores, a bouncy house, and a whole lot of fun!

Invite your friends for a safe alternative to trick-or-treating door-to-door. But remember, children need to be with an adult to attend. Lots of TRUNKS needed for this event. You are asked to decorate your car in some crazy way and the award for “Best Trunk” will receive a cool prize! Specific guidelines will be given out at registration.
