Children's Ministry

Children are very much, and in every way, full members of God's church. We desire to invite and encourage our littlest ones into the Family Life of the church and Children's Ministry is an important place where this can happen.


The mission of Children’s Ministry at Wellspring is the same as that of the church: To be a place where lives are transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. To that end, we focus on loving and nurturing children into a lifelong relationship with Jesus.  We want each child to become everything that God has planned. Our wonderful teachers and volunteers make it possible for us to follow Christ’s mandate to feed His lambs.  They are wonderful examples of Christ’s love and of "training up children in the way that they should go, so that when they are old they will not depart.”

Family Life with Our Children...

Nursery: 

Care is provided in the Nursery for children up to three years of age. It begins at 9:00 a.m. and continues throughout the church service.

 

Sunday School:

Sunday School, for children from preschool through sixth grade, is offered from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. No registration is necessary. We welcome all children from our parish families, visiting grandchildren, neighbors and friends.

 

Preschool and Kindergarten children are exploring God’s love through a curriculum called Buzz.  They hear a Bible story, have a weekly devotion, draw, play games, and other creative activities.

 

For the first through sixth grades, we provide a lesson followed by an object lesson, both designed to broaden and strengthen each child’s relationship with Jesus. We hope that each child will also grow in Bible study, prayer, and worship. Our object lessons include science, handbells, arts and crafts, and games.


Children’s Chapel:

Children’s Chapel is available for children ages four through seven. Chapel begins at 10:15.  Children join their families in church just after the Passing of the Peace. Chapel provides lots of fun activities and lessons that always bless the children and teach them about the love of Jesus.  The lesson is the same Gospel lesson the adults are hearing in church each week.

 

Vacation Bible School:

Each summer, a one-week Vacation Bible School is offered for children from preschool through sixth grade.  Registration forms are available in the Sunday bulletin and the church office beginning the first of June. We provide Bible story, skits, science experiments, crafts, snacks, and handbells. Each day emphasizes how much God loves each child.
