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 for children up to three years of age. Nursery is available during the 10:15 a.m. 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.

 

Our younger ages (preschool­–3rdgrade) are currently learning more about God’s Word through the Jesus Storybook Bible curriculum. Grades 4–6 are going through the Action Bible curriculum as they discover more about who God is and what He has done.

 

Children’s Church:

Children’s Church is available for children ages four through seven. Children join their families for the beginning of worship at 10:15 a.m. They are dismissed after a blessing and return to their families just after the Passing of the Peace. Children’s Church provides a lesson, a Bible verse, and intentional activities to help them get to know Jesus and His love for them. 


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.
