Each month, there are several Children’s Events going on at Wesley to help educate and bring our children closer to our Lord Jesus Christ. Here are some of the children’s events that take place at Wesley throughout the year.

  • Sunday School – Children in preschool through 5th grade are encouraged to attend Sunday School at 10:00am, between our two worship services. Sunday School is an opportunity to make friends and enjoy fun activities while growing in faith.
  • Easter Celebration – Children celebrate Christ’s resurrection by playing games, making Easter crafts, and enjoying time with their friends. They also participate in small groups in an Easter Egg Hunt.
  • Vacation Bible School – This fun filled, interactive, week long program in July helps teach our children about the love of Jesus and encourages them to apply the principles they learn to their daily lives.
  • Splashy Saturdays – On Saturdays in August, we bring out our inflatable water slide to promote fun and Christian fellowship.
  • Fall Festival – Take pleasure in a crisp fall day and enjoy games, crafts, and a moon bounce at our annual Fall Festival.
  • Wednesday Night Suppers – During the fall and winter, Wednesday nights at Wesley are alive with the sounds of children, youth, and adults. Wednesday Night Supper is an opportunity for families to enjoy a time of fellowship and a homemade meal.
  • Children’s Nativity Pageant – Children participate in one of the most cherished Christian traditions of re-enacting the story of the birth of Christ.
  • Christmas Party with Santa – Come enjoy dinner and holiday cheer while children wait eagerly to see and talk with Santa. Activities are provided that help children see the Christ child in Christmas.

Worship News

Children’s bulletins are available at both services. Children can color Bible scenes, look up scripture readings, and work puzzles that relate to the readings of the day. The best use of these bulletins however, is as a discussion starter at home. Ask an usher for one and try it this week!

Children’s Library

Check out our books for all ages in the children’s library! Older children might enjoy My Life as a Broken Bungee Cord by Bill Meyers. It has ten exciting chapters about a boy who deals with one calamity after another and finally learns to put his trust in God. We have books for parents too. Good and Angry-Exchanging Frustration for Character…in You and Your Kids! by Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller is a great resource for parents to check out.
