Awesome programming for infants to kids in Grade 5 is provided during our services .
Events & Activities
Experiences outside of Sunday mornings, focusing on growing together and serving others.
Our hope is that Sunday mornings at WMB are a significant experience for every member of your family. Gospel fluency is our goal, and Sundays are a time for kids to learn more about Jesus and deepen their relationship with him. Through monthly scripture verses, and deep dives into how God’s Word applies to our lives thousands of years later, your kids will know that God made them, God’s plan is for them, and that Jesus is the only way. Our weekly parent emails encourage and equip you to engage with your kids at home throughout the week!
Kids Ministry staff and volunteers have completed a screening process and training to make sure your child is well cared for. Children are securely signed in when they arrive on Sunday mornings. At sign in, the child will receive a name tag and the parent will receive a security tag. These tags have matching codes which will be used when releasing your child. Our Kids space is a nut-free zone so that all children may be included in the programs we offer.
Infants & Toddlers
Our nursery provides a safe, loving and fun environment where newborns to walkers are cared for while you participate in the worship service, or serve elsewhere, on Sunday mornings.
Our toddler room is ready for your 18 month – 3 year old with many activities and loving volunteers to play with!
The Sunday morning Preschool program nurtures kids 3-5 years old toward becoming followers of Jesus: people who know and love God, interpret God’s word, belong to God’s gathered community, and share God’s good news. Together, preschool children play, sing, and create as they learn of God’s goodness.
We desire to see elementary kids develop a passion for God, His story and their place in it. Our diverse group of kids at WMB will be engaged in ways that click with their learning style – learning, creating, exploring and experimenting. Our Sunday mornings include a large group session of active worship and fun Bible exploration, and grade-level small groups. In this way, they have the opportunity to make friends at the same age and stage along their faith journey.
Activities & Events
All over the world, God is building His Kingdom through children and through child-like faith. At WMB, we seek to embrace children with the intent of becoming like them in faith, and to disciple them as they follow Jesus. When parents dedicate their children, they are: Declaring their desire to raise their child to know and love Jesus; Recognizing that they can’t do it on their own and need God to empower them day by day to fulfill this responsibility; and inviting their community to be part of this discipling journey.
Child Dedications take place on a Sunday afternoon (3:30-5pm) in the Lower Auditorium. Participating families are encouraged to invite their community of family and friends to be a part of this celebration service. We celebrate together by hearing some of the hopes the parents have as they raise their children, praying with each family and their children, and making commitments to God and to one another. Light refreshments are served.
Upcoming Child Dedications
*Up to three families can be accommodated at each dedication.
FORM: To sign up for an upcoming dedication, please complete the following information: child’s full name, child’s birth date and parents’ names.
Wumba Kids Camp is an exciting full-day camp for kids entering Grades 1-6 in September. Through activities like outdoor games and splash days, crafts, music and baking, workshops and guest speakers, kids have the opportunity to explore all kinds of fun while building what we hope will be life-long friendships with peers and leaders alike. Each day, we tie in a faith component, facilitating Bible exploration and discussion about God and His great big love for us. Kids bring their own lunches, and we provide morning and afternoon snacks and a truckload of memories!
