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 including Vacation Bible Camp.

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.


Journey to the Star—A Family Event will take place on Friday, December 6 from 5:30-9:00 p.m.  Let’s gather to welcome in the Advent season with an evening full of fun.  We will enjoy a simple dinner together then create Advent crafts as a family.  Next we will watch the movie, The Star, in Helms Hall.  You’ll want to bring your sleeping bag and pillow.  Pajamas are welcome!  The cost is $10 per family. Registration is now full. 

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.
