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.

The Ark Children’s Ministry: Sunday, January 3 Lesson

This week’s lesson: Jesus’ Baptism

Bible Verse: Matthew 3:13-17

Sunday School Classroom Page The Ark is excited to introduce a new Sunday School curriculum that will engage children’s natural sense of curiosity to help them understand God’s love. They will explore the Bible in ways that feed their imagination and will encourage creativity. Through Bible stories, songs, videos, activities, and parent involvement, Celebrate Wonder will equip families to aid children to explore their faith while incorporating it into their daily lives. Ark Families, let’s journey together, let’s wonder together, and let’s celebrate God together! Click here to download the interactive lesson for this week.
