At Wingate Baptist Church, we value all children and seek to love and guide them in the way of Jesus. Our goal is to provide a safe place where children know they will be loved, grow in knowledge and in relationship with God, and serve God in worship and in care for others.
All children from infants through fifth grade are invited to participate in children’s choir at 9:30am. The preschool and elementary children’s choirs provide opportunities for children to learn about God through music, how we worship God, and to lead our congregation in worship. Choirs will lead in worship periodically throughout the year.
Following children’s choir, all children are encouraged to be a part of a Sunday School class at 10:00am. Our Sunday School teachers are committed to caring for all children, praying for and with children, and helping them discover more about God’s love for them. Through Sunday School, children are able to grow in their relationship with other children and adults who will support them in their faith as they grow.
Children and Worship
Our Sunday morning worship service begins at 10:30am, and children are welcome and encouraged to participate in worship alongside of their families. Throughout the year, children are invited to lead in worship through Scripture reading, prayer, or helping collect the offering. In the foyer outside of the sanctuary, children can pick up worship bags to use during the service. These bags are full of quiet activities that children can engage in during the service. Wingate Baptist Church believes that in welcoming children in worship, we also welcome the wiggles, cries, and whispering that their presence can bring. We consider these simple reminders that God has blessed us and entrusted us with children to care for and raise up in the knowledge of God.
Our youngest children, infants through Kindergarten, are offered a time of extended care at 10:30am. A rotating team of volunteers joyfully cares for these children by providing them a safe space to play during our Sunday morning worship service.
Throughout the year, Wingate Baptist Church provides additional opportunities for children to come together for faith formation, fun, or service. These events include opportunities such as Vacation Bible School, a Fall Festival, Christmas caroling, and more.
