Children's & Family Ministry
This Ministry serves children 4 years of age thru the 6th grade with activities and educational programs on Sundays, Vacation Bible School in early summer, Children’s Christmas worship/program and Family Servant projects. We schedule monthly Family Events open to our church, school, and community families of all ages. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of being a part of the faith development of your children as they learn about Jesus.
One of the primary ways of getting into the Word is through the Sunday-morning teaching taking place during worship. Pastor Dave's weekly messages are, first and foremost Biblical and balanced. They are practical and relevant to the lives of those who worship with us in person as well as those who listen through the Youtube link on this website. You can also sign up to receive the recording file through your email.
Pastor continually teaches and applies the Word on a daily basis as people contact him with specific questions relating to their life.
This one-to-one format has proved to be very effective and popular with members and guests in our busy society.
Other short-term learning opportunities are provided throughout the year as scheduled.

Parents may choose the half day program or let their student spend the day in our Extended Day program. Students will experience the award winning Zoo-phonics curriculum, handwriting, music, literacy, arts & crafts, math & science skills, and hands-on activities to prepare for Kindergarten. At WOL Preschool we teach a daily Bible lesson with chapel weekly.
Our ministry to teens is called “Rewired.” We seek to establish ministry programs that serve our teens 6th – 12th grade creating ministry programs which include spiritual, social, and service opportunities to help foster spiritual, relational and personal grow. Teens are not only the future of our Church, they are also a vital part of who we are in this moment. Parent involvement plays a vital role in this ministry.
We are always looking for opportunities to serve the mission of the church through “servant” opportunities that get members and friends involved in ministry that blesses people in our community and throughout the world. we provide for Choices Pregnancy Center, Phoenix Rescue Mission, Sunshine Foster Homes of Surprise, etc
