Children’s Ministry CHALLENGE
Developing Children to be life-long disciples who know, love, follow and serve Jesus Christ

WCPres Children’s Ministries goal is to create an authentic Christian community where children and their families are nurtured, supported and equipped to be life-long disciples who know, love, follow and serve Jesus Christ. 

The faith of a child who is raised in a Christian home and a church family, develops over time and parallels the individual development of the child.  A child’s faith is influenced by people, places and a variety of experiences. Most often the greatest influence of a child’s faith is their family. However, the church as an individual’s faith family, is also a very important influence. 

We recognize that raising children is a challenge in and of itself and raising a child of faith is an even greater challenge. We also recognize that any parents do not feel qualified or equipped to disciple their own children to be followers of Jesus. For this reason, WCPres desires to come alongside parents as a faith family, partnering with parents in the faith formation and discipleship of their children.

In order for us to best serve you and your child, we ask that you please complete a Child Participation Form for all children participating in any Children’s Ministry program or childcare at WCPres.

Child Discipleship Pathway

We have created a Child Discipleship Pathway to help parents journey with their children as they grow and develop as children of God and form their own faith so that they might grow to be life-long disciples who know, love, follow and serve Jesus Christ. As part of the Child Discipleship Pathway WCPres wants to nurture and equip parents as they raise their children. As a Faith Family, WCPres recognizes and celebrates the transitions and accomplishments in the faith development of our children. 

The Child Discipleship Pathway identifies four stages of faith development and challenges children to (1) Know God’s love (2) Know & Love God’s Word (3) Know & Love God’s Son (4) Love & Serve God’s people.
