Calling all kids ages k-5th grade!
We need your help at the 9am service as we parade into the sanctuary to celebrate Jesus triumphant entry into Jerusalem! Arrive at church by 8:55 latest! Check in on the IPADS at the west or east entrance and put a name tag on your child. Then walk with your kids up to Founder’s Hall (right outside the sanctuary)to meet teachers and guides who will hand them a fresh palm branch and gather them in a line. You can head into the sanctuary to watch our parade! All grades will parade through the sanctuary with their teachers at the beginning of the service then we’ll head back to our classrooms for our learning. Check out in the Graceland rooms as usual.
Highlights from Holy Week Lessons on 4/7
4th and 5th graders in an opening prayer circle in the gym. 2nd graders baking resurrection rolls in the kitchen!!

Sunday’s in April: Holy Week
Bible Story: Matthew 21:1-11; 26:17-58, 69-75; 28:1-10
Bible Verse: He isn’t here, because he’s been raised from the dead, just as he said. Come, see the place where they laid him. Matthew 28:6
Anchor Point: We celebrate Jesus!
Children will experience the Bible story in many different ways. As a result, each Bible story and its meaning will stay with them for life!Through art, cooking, games, missions, science, spiritual practices, and storytelling, children will learn the stories of Holy Week.
Tithing in Church:
Wednesdays at WCC!!
Each week Miss Autumn joins us during class to teach songs that tie in with our monthly theme! All kids also have small group leaders who meet with them each week to build relationships and to teach the lessons through games and activities. Research shows that all kids need caring adults other than their parents in their lives to walk with them on the journey. Our committed leaders understand this mission and have signed on for the year to walk in faith with your kids! Take the time to thank your child’s leaders each week.
