Children (4-year-old – 3rd grade) will start off in the Worship Service.

After two songs, the kids, teachers, and Miss Becky will leave and go to Sunday School. Children may be picked up from Sunday School at 10:30 in the following rooms:
Sundays at 11:00a

Wednesdays - Kid's Inc. is held on Wednesday nights from September - November, and January – April (usually ends the week before Spring Break). This year, like last year, we are basing our night around Acts 2:42 “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” We are incorporating all of these things into our evening. We will start with pizza dinner at 5:30 ($2 per child; to make reservations for your kids click here). After dinner, the children will rotate with their class to Bible, Music, and Recreation. Your kids won't want to miss it!
Prayer Partner Ministry
The Prayer Partner Ministry is a new ministry we are starting at WPC. We are praying that people who do not have young kids will sign up and pray for families with young children. We will then pair a young family with this person and ask that they will commit to pray for this family daily and even send little notes occasionally to the kids. We are praying that this will not just be one-sided though. We pray that families will pray for this person as well and even send them little cards or notes and speak to them in church. We would love to see this ministry be one that brings generations together, encourages parents, and surrounds our kids with prayer!
