PARENTS WITH YOUNG CHILDREN
Over the next few Sundays, our teachers in Children's Worship will be preparing our kids for Palm Sunday and for Easter. In addition to their routine Bible studies, they will be learning a song to share with the congregation on Palm Sunday.
We value children and family at WCPC and believe that children are a gift from God. Because of this we have an integrated approach to Family Ministry – meaning that the church and the home work together to nurture our covenant children spiritually. We find a beautiful prescription for Family Ministry in Deuteronomy 6:5-9.
On Sundays during the Worship Service, we provide Bible-based teaching to children up to elementary school age in a separate classroom setting.
We also provide materials each week to help parents reinforce the Bible lesson at home and opportunities for parents to discuss and learn from each other as they seek to raise their children and nurture them spiritually. Topics have included Modeling Healthy Relationships, Discipline, Growing a Heart of Gratitude in Your Children, Celebrating a Christ-Centered Christmas, Raising Responsible Children, and Spiritual Nurture of Children. We plan events for families for the purpose of fellowship and outreach such as a Fall Kick off brunch, Fall Party, Caroling party, Birthday Party for Jesus (children bring gifts for children in need), Family Game night (families bring items to fill bags for the homeless), a Valentine Party, Easter Egg Hunt, Volunteer Appreciation Lunch, Sole Hope Party, Summer Days at the Park, and a Family Picnic.

Meeting in small groups gives us the best opportunity to really develop relationships. Our Connect Groups are designed to provide just that kind of environment. If you are looking to for deeper friendships, ask us about joining one of our Connect Groups. At this point in time, there are three group meeting on various Sundays. To learn more about Connect Groups contact Mitch Moore.

Men's Breakfast 2019
It's that time of year again for our Men’s Wednesday Morning discussion group. I want you to know that our time together is not only about the topics we discuss but the bond of fellowship and relationship forged between us. As Psalm 133 declares, 'it is good for brothers to dwell together in unity’ especially in our age of rootlessness and disconnection, the time we spend together is crucial.
We will meet 6 times from March 6-April 10. Our first meeting will be Wednesday morning March 6th; bright and early at 7 am at the Panera's (St Louis Bread Co) on Clarkson near Baxter. Discussion questions will be sent out and posted here soon. Click on the Men's Ministry page to read more.
Hope to see you there with us.
