We are intentional in creating a fun and inviting environment for our 5th and 6th graders on Sunday morning. They have a time for social interaction, a time for teaching the truth found in God's Word, and a time to divide into small groups to delve into how to apply the truth to their lives. Our desire is to have a safe atmosphere where kids can ask the hard questions as they discover their faith and make it their own.
Jan Dale, Elementary Coordinator
Our desired outcome for your student is:
- grow in their relationship with Jesus
- have time with God everyday
- will be comfortable to pray out loud
- know they are loved and nurtured
- have fun with friends at church
- know what they believe and demonstrate attitudes and actions that reflect Jesus’ love
Fusion is available for second service on Sunday mornings. Fusion opens 15 minutes prior (at 10:15 a.m.) and stays open 15 minutes after scheduled ending time unless otherwise noted.
Visitors are welcome to check in at the Elementary desk located on the first floor. You and your child will receive security badges and be escorted to your child’s classroom.
Each week your child will experience the following:
- a time to meet together for fellowship, snacks and games
- a chronological, Christ-centered Bible lesson in large group that examines how all scripture gives testimony to Jesus
- dividing into discipleship groups for application and prayer time by gender
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.
To participate in the class, sign up by emailing Judy Dorris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Collecting supplies for Siloam Clinic
- Charis Food Delivery
- Hope for Christmas
- Backpacks for McKissack Middle School
Jr. Helper Opportunities
During first service a 5th or 6th grade student can serve as a Jr. Helper in the preschool classrooms. A student must complete an application and be trained by the preschool coordinator before they can serve in classrooms. You can pick up an application at the elementary desk from Judy Dorris or email Judy at Judy@westendcc.org.
