Jesus. That’s who we’re all about at WBC Kids. Our team, our space, our schedule, our stuff… all of it is focused on leading 1st through 5th grade boys and girls to know, love and follow our Savior, Jesus Christ.
To do this, we make a big deal about 6 things:
- Teaching the Bible in child-relevant ways that they can grasp.
- Communicating the Gospel clearly, simply and repeatedly.
- Having lots of fun!
- Partnering with children’s parents, their primary Faith Trainers.
- Developing meaningful relationships with peers and adult Faith Trainers in small group settings.
- Promoting God’s great mission, here and everywhere in the world.

Finding Us is Easy
When you pull up on Campus, you will drop your children off at the upper facility. Look for the sign that says, “Kids Ministry”.
A Word about Safety and Security
All of our WBC Kids team members have gone through an extensive background check. Also, members of our lead team walk the halls and visit rooms during the small group sessions. For added security, ministry team members regularly roam our hallways during each of our gatherings.
WBC Kids’ weekly activities are alive, fun, Bible-focused and Christ-centered gatherings in a welcoming and safe environment. There are two Sunday morning gatherings beginning at 8:30am and 11:00am that coordinate with the main worship times. Come check us out this week!
There are two Sunday morning gatherings for Kids Church beginning at 8:30AM and 11AM coordinating with the main worship times. Sunday School is held at 9:45AM.
WBC Kids’ Wednesday evenings features our Awana program. It all happens in the Family Life Center (FLC) mid-August through mid-May, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
The big idea of this mid-week ministry is to ignite children’s passion for Jesus, His Gospel and His great mission. Boys and girls come with their Bibles and their fastest running shoes. Bibles are used as a primary resource in engaging large and small group learning experiences. The running shoes are for the heart-pumping room-shaking game time.
Wednesday Night (During the Summer)
MEGA SPLASH Camp—6:30pm to 8:30pm
Everyday at Home
What happens every day at home has the potential to impact a child’s faith much more than what happens during our Sunday and Wednesday gatherings at WBC Kids. That said, what happens at WBC Kids is critically important, too. But we recognize God’s primary time and place for shaping children’s faith is every day at home. That’s what God communicates to parents in this passage:
“. . . these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.” Deuteronomy 6:6, 7
Since we recognize parents’ primary role in this privileged, yet enormous task, WBC Kids is committed to supporting, equipping, and encouraging you along the way. One of the main ways we do this is by preparing caring weekly experiences for your children and keeping you informed and integrated into what’s happening. For example, each week we communicate with you and include the lesson focus and Scripture passage for the coming Sunday. Also, when your children master their Bible memory passages, we direct them to you to quote the passages and to receive credit toward our incentives program. These are just two examples of how we support you in discipling your little ones.
