WBKids exists to partner with families to help them know Jesus more. We accomplish this by teaching kids the Bible, communicating the Gospel, leading kids to worship, and teaching kids to serve.

 

Sunday Morning

WBKids classes 9:15 am or 10:45 am

Sunday mornings are filled with energy and filled with fun! We play games, worship, and hear from God’s Word; all to help us learn more about Jesus! Kids have the opportunity to build relationships with leaders and peers in a gospel centered environment. We use The Gospel Project for Kids curriculum from Lifeway. If you would like more information about our Sunday morning experience, email whitney@willowbrook.org

Wednesday Night

WBKids is not meeting on Wednesday nights at this time due to COVID-19.

Next Steps for Kids

Following Jesus is the most important decision your child will ever make. We want to partner with you as you walk through this process with your child. As kids begin asking questions about salvation and baptism, they will attend our Starting Point and All About Baptism classes with their parents. First they attend Starting Point where we share with kids what it means to become a Christian. After kids have made the decision to follow Jesus, they will attend our All About Baptism class where we share with kids what baptism is, who should get baptized, and why we get baptized. Resources are provided for parents at both classes to help kids through these decisions. Once a child has attended both classes, we will schedule baptism. After baptism, kids receive a weekly devotional to help them grow in their relationship with Jesus. To sign up for our Next Step Classes or to find out more about leading your child to Christ, contact whitney@willowbrook.org

Family Experience (FX)

We believe one of the best ways to stimulate the rhythm of a family is to create frequent shared experiences for that family. The premise is simple: parents and kids need time together in a shared environment on a frequent basis. However, instead of getting kids excited about what their parents believe by putting them in a service designed for adults, shouldn’t we be doing the opposite?  We want to get parents excited about what we are teaching their children by putting adults in an environment designed for kids!

Why? Because parents have approximately 3,000 hours in a given year to influence the heart and life of their child. In comparison, we as a church have approximately 40 hours with your child each year. It’s simple math. If you want to influence kids, you need to start with those who have the most potential to influence them: you, their parents. That’s the idea behind a Family Experience, it’s a place where kids take their parents to learn!

FX is an experience that’s designed to be shared by parents and children to help them do family better. FX is offered three times a year. Families come together for an interactive worship experience that includes high energy worship, games, family challenges, a Bible lesson, drama, and dinner.

New Here?

Here's what you need to know!

We are honored that you would trust your child with us while you worship! Your child’s safety is our priority. When you arrive at the church, you will check in at our welcome desk in the WBKids lobby. We will register your family in our secure system, and volunteers will help you find your child’s classroom. All volunteers who work with children at Willowbrook have a background check on file. Our kids ministry opens 15 minutes prior to each service. Kids can attend kids ministry one hour and they attend worship with their family the opposite hour. Kids worship bulletins are available outside the sanctuary to help kids engage with the service.

4th - 5th Graders

While kids in 4th – 5th grades are included in some of the WBKids Grade School activities – like our quarterly Family Experience (FX) nights, they have their own ministry: WBKids Preteen. Having this ministry allows us to work with kids in this critical age group, tailoring  content and application to older kids, strengthening their faith in these critical years before they move up to middle school.   If you have questions about preteen ministry, contact Jenn Irelan or Whitney Reeves.

Preteen ministry page coming soon.
