Early Childhood Ministry (Birth through Preschool)
In our early childhood classrooms, we provide a secure, clean & loving environment where the youngest children will have a fun time learning about God’s love. Biblical truths are taught through Bible stories, songs, finger-plays, crafts, organized games & even through play! We believe that children learn best through repetition along with engaging all learning styles. Our desire is to help parents build a foundation of faith in their kids. All early childhood classrooms are open for the 9:45am and 11:00am worship services.
Elementary Ministry (Kindergarten through Fifth Grade)
Our goal is to provide kids with a weekly experience that is fun, relationally driven, and packed with Biblical truths. It is an interactive time of teaching Biblical truths, worshiping together & hands-on activities. Our teachers are committed to making the most of the time that we have with this age group. We believe that we have a unique opportunity to reach these kids with the gospel of Jesus Christ during the elementary years.
Where do I start?
Wildwood is a big place and we want you to feel at home as soon as possible. The Children’s Ministry building is located at the back of the church. There is a large circle drive in the back for convenient pick up or drop off, but there is also access to the Children’s Building through the Gathering Hall or through the rear entrance.
If you have an infant or toddler, please bring all necessary items (bottle, pacifier, special blanket, diapers, etc.) and clearly label each item. You will soon find that our volunteers will do everything they can to make sure your child is well taken care of!
When you arrive you will be asked to fill out a Family Registration Card (you may bring the card along with you if you desire), and our Welcome Team will assist you in registering your children (5th grade and younger) into our computer check-in system. The computer system will provide you name tags as well as a pick up receipt with a number to be used for paging and pick up.
Where will my children meet on Sunday morning?
During the 9:45am and 11:00am service: birth through preschool children will meet in downstairs area of the Children’s Building and kindergarten through fifth grade children will meet in the upstairs area of the Children’s Building.
Safety and Security
Throughout all of our programs, we are intentional with making the most of every opportunity that we have with a child. We are fortunate to staff all of our environments with the highest quality of volunteers who have been properly screened and trained. We follow systematic check-in and dismissal procedures throughout the use of computerized check-in stations. If we need to contact a parent during a worship service, we have the ability to page them.
