We are so excited about what God is doing in the Preschool & Children's Ministry at Wilcrest! Come join the fun in one of the following ministries. God is doing a mighty work in His ministry with our children. Come be a part and register your children today.
Wednesday Nights @ 6 p.m.
Gospel Kids, we are raising a generation of Christ followers through
connecting with God, His Word, families, each other, the local community and
the world. Kids K-5th grade,
join us for a time of discipleship, worship, age-appropriate and interactive Bible study,
games, crafts and powerful Mission Moments.
Come check out the latest and see for yourself why kids can't wait to come to Gospel Kids!
Sunday Mornings @ 9:30 AM
Sunday School for Infants-2 years: We believe that every baby and toddler can experience God's love through an environment filled with prayer; a place where they hear foundational Bible stories, and simple truth statements by loving caregivers.
Sunday School for Preschool & Kindergarten: Children learn important teachings from God's Word through meaningful, hands-on activities, songs, and crafts. Our caring teachers help children develop a love for God and His Word.
Sunday School for 1st-5th Grade: Children learn about the attributes of God, what it means to trust in His promises, God's redemptive plan through Jesus Christ, and the process by which a Christian becomes more and more conformed to the likeness of Jesus.
Wednesday Nights @ 6 p.m.
We have Puggles Club for 2 year olds and Cubbies Club for 3-4 year olds. We would love for you to come join our Preschool clubs as we learn about the Bible and have fun doing it. AWANA is a wonderful program that helps churches and parents work together to develop spiritually strong children who are faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
Please Note: The Bridge will take a summer break the months of June and July. We look forward to starting a new season with our Children's Church August 12, 2018!
Sunday Mornings @ 10:45 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
The Bridge is a place where children in Kinder-3rd grade learn what it means to worship through the reading of God's Word, singing, prayer, serving, and giving sacrificially. While parents are in the worship service, our leaders will provide a worship experience that mirrors our main worship service. The messages align with the sermons that are preached in our worship services.
Our prayer is that The Bridge will provide an environment that equips all children to become Christ followers who love God with all of their hearts and have a passion to share the Gospel with others. Sunday School teachers will escort children to The Bridge immediately following Sunday School. The Bridge will not meet the first or last Sunday of the month, allowing the children to observe our Lord's Supper & Baptism services.
We ask that parents pick up their children immediately following the service.
Coming Soon...Summer 2020
Join us each summer for an amazing week of life-giving Bible stories, upbeat music, crafts, fun games, yummy snacks, and hands-on Bible activities. In 2019, we had our VBS Sports Camp for K-5th and an ESL Intensive Class for adults. It was an awesome week with more than 150 kids!
Wilcrest Baptist Church offers a powerful and unique opportunity for sharing Jesus Christ and positively impacting the kingdom of God through our VBS ministry. This is a Biblically-based, Gospel-centered, creative, fun, and loud week, focused on equipping our children with the Word of God.
Baby Dedication offers Christian parents the opportunity to dedicate their children as they publicly promise the Lord to do everything they can, while dependent upon Christ, to raise their children in a godly way. Parents present their child before God and the Church, asking for grace and wisdom in carrying out their responsibilities. Parents also come praying that their child might one day trust Jesus Christ as Savior for the forgiveness of sin.
We look forward to walking with you during this special time in your spiritual journey with your child. We have two Baby Dedication services each year: one on Mother's Day, and one in December. Those who participate will also be a part of a Baby Dedication class prior to the service so that they may prayerfully prepare for this special service and the call of dedicating their children to the Lord.
We believe the Lord has called us to be Gospel Families who enjoy and celebrate discipleship, worship, and missions in the home. Our preschool & children's ministry hopes to come alongside families and encourage them in this Gospel Family journey through prayer, discipleship, counsel, and simply sharing life.
"Jesus called them to him, saying, 'Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.'" ~Luke 18:16
