Children’s Ministry [birth-5th grade]

 
We believe parents play the primary role in developing a child’s faith and it is our desire to partner WITH you. We want to inspire, equip, and support you with resources that help connect what happens at home with what is happening at church. The heart of wentzvilleKidz is to provide a dynamic environment where children can encounter God — launching them into an authentic relationship with Jesus that stirs their hearts to make Him known to others!

Note For PARENTS

 

PRETEEN SMALL GROUPS: 3rd-5th grade

Wednesdays | Beginning SEP 14 

If your kid is in 3rd-5th grade and looking to make some more friends and grow together in God’s word, then join us on Wednesday nights for our Pre-teen Small Groups! In these gender-specific groups, kids will dig further into the stories and lessons we are teaching on Sunday and figure out how to apply those lessons to everyday life.

 SUNDAY MORNINGS

Early Childhood (birth to 5 year olds)

We have age-appropriate rooms for Infants through 5 year olds. Each room is a unique learning experience that meets the kids on their level. From the 1-year-old class forward, we emphasize a fun large-group time of singing, dancing, and moving and then break into smaller groups for the lesson.

Elementary (K-1st Grade) & Elementary (2nd-5th Grade)

The 8:30 & 11 am classes will be similar with a different focus at the 9:45 class. Each service time has an interactive large group presentation as well as classroom activities, keeping kids fully engaged; so families can serve and worship each week.  

Very Important Persons

Imagine having your senses bombarded through large spaces and large crowds, strangers entering into your personal space demanding eye contact and interaction; bright lighting/loud sounds/and tons of things providing stimulation that overload your system. We have some VIP friends that struggle with this weekly and they need extra help. 
WentzvilleKidz offers a VIP Program for children who need extra help being in a classroom situation on Sunday mornings. We have awesome volunteers who can be a 1-on-1 with your child if that is something your family would need. We need to be able to schedule a VIP for each child, so arrangements will need to be made beforehand. Contact Connor Davidson, Elementary Minister, for more information. 
 
 

Family/Child Dedication

Sunday, September 18 

Family Dedication Day is a fun day set aside for our newest babies, adopted children and their families to be introduced to our church family. It is a time when parents will be asked to acknowledge the child as a gift from God and their desire for them to know Jesus. If you would like to participate in this event and introduce your new baby born or child adopted recently, register below:
 
WentzvilleKidz also offers a sensory room if your child is in need of a little down time. The sensory room is available for a 1-on-1 to take a child to each morning, or it can be staffed upon request if a child needs to spend the entire morning in there. 

Taking the Plunge – Baptism Class

Next Class TBD 
We are thrilled to be offering a baptism class for parents and children. Through powerful illustrations, interactive questions, and relevant teaching, we will go through “Take the Plunge” books together as we pave the way for kids to make the BIGGEST and BEST decision of their life! The class will span 3 Sundays during the 11am service. We greatly encourage parents to attend with their kids.
