Children are a heritage from the Lord!
God declares to us in the Scriptures that "children are a heritage from the Lord" (Psalm 127:3). WRPC diligently seek to train and disciple the heritage entrusted to us by supporting and assisting parents in the Christian nurture of their children (Eph.6:4). Formally, we do this work through our Children's Ministry Program. It includes the following:
Teaching that is rich in biblical content and instruction
Memorization of Scripture and Catechism
Familiarization of songs sung in the corporate worship service
Fellowship with other children of a similar age group
It is our great privilege to assist you in the raising of your children. Please take advantage of our many resources and let us serve you by having your children participate in our ministry to them.
Children's Sunday School
Every Sunday morning from 11:15-12:00 children meet with others in their age group for Sunday School class. The weekly bulletin lists classrooms and teachers. You can also stop by the Visitors' Desk in the foyer for more information.
Children ages 3-11 are taught songs, hymns, and spiritual songs, as well as basic music theory to better prepare them for worship. The class is taught by our own Music Director and his very able Assistants.
Catekids (pronounced "cat-e-kids")
On Wednesday night, children gather after dinner at 6:35 PM for instruction and memorization of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, along with an assortment of fun and games.
On Thursday mornings during ladies Bible study, we offer nursery care as well as classes for preschool through elementary home schooled children so their moms can attend Bible study.
Vacation Bible School
Summer features one of the highlights of our children's ministry with a fun-filled week of VBS for the children of the church and surrounding community. Each year's theme is carefully chosen to be evangelistic as well as growth oriented, working to build up the faith of our children.

Children's Ministry at WRPC is Multifaceted and Intentional
Our children's classes are rich in biblical content, scripture memorization and catechism. In addition to regular children’s classes, we welcome our children into corporate worship, involve them in ministry and service, and provide lots of opportunities for fellowship. Our goal is to come alongside parents, working together to teach our covenant children to love the Lord with all their hearts, souls, and strength.
There are lots of other opportunities for fun and fellowship throughout the year such as King's Kids mixed martial arts, sewing class and playgroups. If you have questions about how to involve your children or if you are interested in serving in one of our children's ministries, please contact the church office at 864-297-5257.
