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.

Children’s Choir

The Children’s Choir at Weddington United Methodist Church meets weekly on Sunday’s from 9:30 to 10:00 a.m. in The Choir Room. Children’s Choir is open to all children in grades 1-5. Children in grade 6 may participate with prior approval from the conductor. The Choir sings at the 11:00 service on various Sundays throughout the year. Children who sing during the Fall semester sing at BOTH of the designated services on Christmas Eve. The season concludes on Palm Sunday. If your children enjoy singing, want to learn more about music, and take their place in leading worship, they should come join the fun!

Children’s Choir for Fall 2019 will begin on Sunday, October 13. Click here to register.
