We are committed to welcoming children into our faith community at birth and valuing their presence and participation as they grow. We understand the importance of teaching children about God from an early age and we strive to provide a learning environment that is safe, loving, and developmentally appropriate. We believe that family discipleship provides the most effective way for spiritual development. We are dedicated to providing preschoolers, children, and their families with a solid foundation for growth along their faith journey.
Transformation in Christ is the end goal for every person! Our greatest desire is to help parents lead their children to accept Jesus as their Savior and know that their lives, earthly and eternal, are forever changed by this decision. To lead them, we must equip families with foundational biblical knowledge and spiritual disciplines that move them toward the next milestone in a faith journey.
We look forward to walking alongside you as we build strong, Christ-centered children and families. Will you partner with us to make a permanent impression for Christ on the heart of your child? To get involved or for more information about children at Tabernacle, contact our Discipleship Pastor, Rob Sauls.
WAM! is a fun ministry for kids that teaches each child about worship arts and missions. During worship arts, children will experience singing, movement, playing instruments, and God’s word as they learn how to become life-long worshippers. Their songs and activities will lead them to hide biblical truths in their heart as they grow older. During missions, children learn about how they can be missionaries wherever they are as they experience mission projects and talk about how to do missions. Our dedicated volunteers will lead your child to find their voice and confidence in worship and will help embolden them to share God’s love through dynamic outreach in service to the community and participation in the global mission of God.
In this group, worship arts and missions are put into “high gear” as each child learns and memorizes scriptural songs and experiences more in depth activities. Going deeper with Christ is a major focus. Throughout the year, these children have opportunities to publicly share what they have been learning in our church-wide concerts and larger events.
We provide childcare for our youngest children during WAM! time on Wednesday nights so that parents are free to attend a discipleship class or serve in a ministry area.
Childcare is also offered on Wednesday nights for all children from 7:15 PM (after WAM! concludes) until 8 PM (when other Wednesday night activities conclude) for any parents who are serving in other areas like student ministry or the adult choir.
A delicious meal is served beginning at 5 PM in Fellowship Hall so families can eat together before Wednesday night activities begin. The cost is $6 for adults and $4 for children.
For more information about WAM! on Wednesday Nights, contact our Worship Pastor, James Kimmel.
