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.


Upcoming Events

Promotion Sunday

It’s time to move on UP! Sunday, June 2 is Promotion Sunday which means children who turn age 3 by August 31 through rising 5th graders move to their new classroom. In order to move to our 3 year old class, children must also be potty trained. Children must turn age 4 by August 31in order to move to our 4 year old classroom. Children who are in TK for the next school year are asked to go ahead and move to the Kindergarten class. All other grades can move on up according to what grade they will be in this coming fall. Questions?  Please contact Carolyn Nelson.


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.
