WCKIDS CHILDREN'S MINISTRY
Children's programming is available during services for children newborn through 5th grade. Plan to come a little early on your first visit so that we can put your information in our child check-in station. Stop by the orange table in the main lobby to register your child for their class.
WCKids will learn to love God with their HEADS through a firm foundation in God's Word, their HEARTS by developing a relationship with Him, and their HANDS by sharing their faith story and serving others like Jesus did.
WHAT TO EXPECT
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.

1st – 3rd grade The Sunday experience includes graded Bible classes and a large group worship experience geared specifically to the needs of elementary children.
4th & 5th grade We believe this is a significant age that requires a specific type of focus to encourage them in their spiritual development. Various social events, retreats and concerts are available to pre-teens to deepen their relationships with each other, their adult sponsors and their personal relationship with Jesus.
Questions? Meredith Lineberry, WCKids Director
On Sunday mornings, we are happy to offer one-on-one friendships for any child who needs some extra care and attention. Trained adult volunteers, WCBuddies, will be in classrooms to assist in giving children the best Sunday morning experience.
We want to reach out to a population that doesn’t think they can come to church because they have a child with special needs.

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.
