WHAT TO EXPECT

CURRICULUM

Discipleland is the weekly curriculum used by our toddler’s and 2’s. Through simple lessons and hands-on activities, toddlers and 2’s are learning about what God made and what God does.

Tru is a weekly curriculum used by our preschoolers and elementary students to connect with God. Through Tru, children find their place in God’s Big Story and respond to Him through the power of the Holy Spirit. Tru is uniquely created to inspire, equip and support parents as they train their children to follow Jesus.

Homefront Weekly and HomeFrontMag are great resources to help parents teach their children about the Big God Story.

ADULTS

WCGROUPS

God never intended for you to do life alone. You were created for community and connection with others. No matter your stage in life, there is a community group for you.

At Westerville Christian, our community groups are divided into categories to help you find the type of group that would best fit your life.

Each of our community groups may have a different focus, but one thing remains the same with every group – their commitment to the four core values of community groups: Sharing, Praying, Scripture, Service.
