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.
