Children’s & Family Ministry
We value all the generations who make PCW a vibrant place of worship and ministry. We are striving to make the Sunday worship experience something that will help the entire family grow in faith. It’s our vision that together we will all learn to be disciples of Jesus who share God’s love with others. We have a variety of fun events throughout the year, like Family Lock-In, Summer Picnic, and Ice Cream Social. See the program weekly announcements and our Facebook page for more details about upcoming events and ways to join in!
On Sundays we invite all children to our worship services at 9:30 am or 11:00 am. These services offer a children’s moment early in the service, then transition to a caring and learning environment outside of the worship areas from birth to 3rd grade. Kids return to the service during the last hymn so families are reunited and can close in worship together.
Infants to 5 year olds: are cared for by qualified, paid staff in the Froggie Room from 9:30 am to noon. (This is a continuous, staffed, offering to parents and children.) K-3rd Grade – Young Movers: We offer enrichment programs and play dates while parents join in adult study classes, enrichment programs get kids moving and learning. Previous programs have included yoga, African drums and dance, and a cherub choir and typically last 4 weeks. 4th & 5th Grade – Bell Tower JEDIs: Fourth and fifth graders hold their own bible study during the 10:00 hour on Sundays. These young thinkers meet in the church bell tower for grown-up led discussions about the bible geared for those in-between years. 6th Grade and Older: We get additionally excited when youth want to help in the other youth programs.
Between the worship services at 10:15 am
We focus on connecting and enrichment for all ages, in a Christian education program to help your children be formed in faith. For PCW, as we are learning together to be followers of Christ in a multi-generational environment, we approach this hour thoughtfully for all ages including adults.
