Children & Youth

Nursery: Providing peace of mind for parents by tenderly caring for children from birth to three years old.

    1. Nursery Hours: Sunday 8:45 am – noon. TBD for other special events.
    2. Divided into three rooms: Infants (birth to 12 months or walking), Toddlers (12 months to 24 months), and 2s & 3s. Each room is staffed with 2-3 workers.
    3. There is also a separate room for nursing mothers.
    4. Safety and Security:
        • Sign in procedure: To provide the safest environment possible, a parent or guardian must fill out a name tag for each child. The name tag indicates any special instruction for the child, an ID number and parent’s location during the Truth Tracks hour or worship service.
        • Visual paging system: The number you receive when you check in also serves as a pager number. If your child needs you during the service, this number will be displayed on the paging boards located above the doors in the front of the sanctuary.
        • Sign out procedure: Children will only be released to a parent or guardian.
        • Background checks: All nursery staff is required to have full background checks and be members of WBC or long-time regular attenders.

Kingdom Kids/LAMBS: Sunday morning mid-service Bible program for children 4 years old – 5th grade.

    1. Children will worship with their parents in the sanctuary until dismissed from the service.

Olympians/Gopher Buddies: Wednesday night Bible program for children 4 years old – 5th grade.

    1. Our program runs from September through May (6:30 PM to 8:00 PM). We also hold sessions once a month during June, July, and August.
    2. This Word of Life based program focuses on the development of a daily quiet time with the Lord. Each grade level (1st-2nd, 3rd-4th, and 5th) has their own quiet time manual, designed for their age, that they use each day. Our program uses direct Bible teaching, singing, skits, audience participation, games, discussion time, and special effects to emphasize Bible knowledge, personal spiritual growth, scripture memory, engagement in Christian service, and the reading of Christian literature.
