WESTERN SPRINGS BAPTIST CHURCH | THE VILLAGE CHURCH

CHILDREN & FAMILIES

We desire and pray for spiritual transformation to occur in the life of a child at church and at home. We are convinced that ministry to children is best accomplished by creatively teaching God's Word and Story and then offering encouragement, practical training and tools based in scripture to parents. 

 

We are committed to families in three ways:

  1. To encourage and equip parents with tools and resources to help them be the primary spiritual influencers and disciplers in their homes. 
  2. To teach the truth of God’s Word and the Gospel to children through God's Story in the Bible, music, small group discussions, relationships, and age-appropriate, creative activities and play.
  3. To maintain a safe and secure environment for kids. All volunteers and leaders are carefully screened and a stringent security process is in place for all kids and families.

  DIG IN: EPIC TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE

Each week WSBC KIDS will DIG INTO EPIC TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE in a classroom format. Our highly creative and caring teachers and assistants strive to create a relational environment that focuses on that day's lesson through a variety of aexperiences, activities and crafts.  They will explore some of the all time great passages of the Bible like the 10 Commandments, Fruit of the Spirit, Armor of God, Psalm 23, and More.  Our WSBC Kids will discover that the Bible matters and that it is a loving letter from God for us to treaure today.

 

We want your child to grow in God's Story and know the heart of God's Word as we teach through these epic passages of Scripture.

  LIVE WIRE

We are excited to relaunch LiveWire this year!

September 15 - December 8

LiveWire is our midweek ministry to children and families.  Starting September 15, we will host a simple dinner for the whole family at 6pm each Wednesday Night.  We know it can be tricky to get from one thing to another and eat dinner all at the same time on a week night.   We hope this is will help. 

 

Come on out for Family Dinner on Sept. 15 & 22 at 6pm and then we’ll spend some time together praying for our children, families and community, and we’ll catch the vision for LiveWire this year.

 

Then on Sept. 29, we’ll launch into a full schedule of Bible Stories, Memory, Fun & Games and more at LiveWire with Dinner at 6pm and LiveWire from 6:30-7:30pm. 

We’ll be updating this webpage with new and more information throughout the year, so be sure to check back with us.
