My passion is for our students to come on Sunday morning, feeling safe, so they can hear God’s Word while engaging with their friends.  My hope is that our students are investigating and living out God’s Truth.

Membership Class

Each September a Children's Membership Class is offered for students 2nd grade and older whose parents are members of WECC. This is a four-week class that takes place during the 9:00 a.m. worship service. 

Purpose for this class:

  • for students who have trusted Christ as their Savior to be able to share their story with an elder (parents will be present too).
  • understand what it means to take part in the sacraments (baptism and communion).
  • gain a better understanding of being sinful and how to follow Jesus.

Service Opportunities

At this age children learn to serve Christ through hands-on opportunities to help others.  Therefore, we offer the following:

  • Collecting supplies for Siloam Clinic
  • Charis Food Delivery
  • Hope for Christmas 
  • Backpacks for McKissack Middle School
