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.

The Advent Season is a great time for families to celebrate “the reason for the season”— Jesus. Join us as we start the season with a Family Advent Kick-off program on Sunday, December 2 in the Fellowship Hall. Lunch will be served starting at 11:30 a.m. followed by a choice of crafts (Advent wreath or Advent calendar). For those attending the 11:00 service, lunch will be served immediately following. The cost is $10 per family and reservations are required by visiting our website no later than Monday, November 26. Click here to register. 


Children’s Ministry Sick Policy

It’s that time of year when a lot of our children are coming down with nasty colds and viruses.  In order to keep our nurseries and classrooms as healthy as possible, please adhere to our Children’s Ministry Sick Policy.
