Children’s Ministry

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him… Psalm 127:3

Our mission is to teach children to glorify God by helping them to:

Serve in God

Love God

Grow in God

Children’s SUNDAY SCHOOL

Every Sunday Morning
9:00AM to 9:45AM

The goal of our Sunday School is that the fundamental principles of the love of God through Jesus Christ be taught.  In each classroom you will find teachers dedicated to proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ with a genuine interest in applying the gospel to your life. Children's Sunday School 3

Whiteford Wesleyan Sunday School classes provide an opportunity for children to learn to stand on the foundation God offers and that He has a plan for EACH of them.  Sunday School is a place to prepare children to grow and thrive outside of their own backyard by making wise choices, trusting God no matter what and learning to treat others the way they want to be treated.

Sunday School classes are offered for:

Pre-K through Kindergarten
First and Second Grade Class
Third through Sixth Grade Class

At Whiteford Wesleyan Church, our children’s ministry operates with the following values in mind:

  • Children Are Inspired

    We provide an environment where children are inspired to hear, learn and obey God’s Word.

  • Follow Jesus

    We encourage children to become fully devoted followers of Jesus.

  • Spiritual Leaders

    We strive to be a resource for parents in their roles as primary spiritual leaders of their homes.

Nursery

Two nurseries are available every Sunday.  These nursery services are designed to provide dependable, safe, secure, and nurturing care to infants and toddlers during Sunday School and Sunday morning worship services.Nursery-2

We want moms and dads to be able to worship and learn about Loving, Growing and Serving unencumbered by worry for their sweet babes.  Our nurseries are staffed by trained volunteers whose focus is on safety, comfort and fun for these precious little lambs.

Infant Nursery – Newborn through two year-old
Toddler Nursery – Two and three year-old

JUNIOR CHURCH

Children in kindergarten through the sixth grade will begin each Sunday worship service by joining their parents in the main sanctuary for a time of praise and worship together as a family.  On the first Sunday of the month, children remain in the main service to continue to worship with their families and experience a special “Kids Korner” message. On the second, fourth and fifth Sundays, children are dismissed to attend a special time of worship called Junior Church where we want children to:

  • Learn about Jesus
  • Live for Jesus
  • Let others know about Jesus

Using age level appropriate music, stories, object lessons, short films and videos, children will understand that they are special in God’s Kingdom and will begin to open up their hearts and minds to receive the “Good News” of Jesus Christ and to have a desire to share that love through Wesleyan Kids For Missions (WKFM).
It is our privilege to partner with parents, grandparents and other significant adults in a child’s life as we embark on this journey together. The precious children that have been entrusted to our loving care are a treasure to us as well. We believe there is no greater call that to make a difference in the life of a child. Join us, anytime, and see what we mean!

Kidz Bible Blitz Ministry

Wednesday nights MAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER
6:30PM to 7:30PM

It’s not Sunday School and it’s not Junior Church!  It’s a special CLUB for kids ages 3 years through 6th grade.  Luke 2:52 tells us that Jesus grew “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”  In order to grow in those things, Wednesday nights during the summer months are spent focusing on each area:

  • Physical
  • Social
  • Mental
  • SPIRITUAL

The children learn by doing many activities, and teachings that gives the child a “hands on” approach. C’mon! Join the CLUB!  The Kidz Bible Blitz Club!
