Mission & Vision

Vision

To see hearts and minds of the next generation transformed and ignited as they encounter the Gospel of Jesus

Mission

  • Safety: Create a safe, welcoming space where children can be who God created them to be and ask hard questions about life and faith in Jesus.
  • Christ-Centered: Teach from a Gospel-focused, Christ-centered perspective, so children have every opportunity to hear and be transformed by the Good News of Jesus.
  • Family-Focused: Minister not only to the child, but to the family as a whole—equipping them to extend their reach for Christ in their family and community.
  • Engaging Community: We want to engage members of all generations, walks of life, and giftings to share in the privilege and duty to passing on our faith to the next generation. Our heart's desire is to be engaged with families in the community.

3 to 3rd Grade

Sunday School

Weaverland's children's ministry has Sunday School classes for each age and grade from age two to 6th grade. Each class caters to the developmental stage of the age to encourage spiritual growth and understanding of Biblical truth at all ages! The threes to 3rd grade Sunday School classes use the Gospel Project curriculum from Lifeway, which emphasizes the chronology of the Bible, God's redemptive story, and the evidence of Gospel on every page of Scripture!

SPARK Children's Church

In addition to Sunday School, children's church is offered during both worship services on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. Unlike Sunday School, SPARK combines age groups for a large-group learning time.

| SPARK Jr: 3s to Kindergarten | SPARK: 1st to 3rd Grade |

Sundays with Kindle46

The preteen years are a unique season of life--many transitions and discovering what it looks like to live out a personal relationship with our Savior Jesus. We are glad to have a vibrant ministry for 4th to 6th grade students on both Sundays and Wednesdays throughout the year!

Sunday School

Kindle Sunday School class consists of 4th to 6th graders, but the two classes are gender-specific to allow for honest conversations and deep relationships to form! Both the boys' and girls' classes are using the Forged curriculum from LifeWay, building on the truths of 1 Peter 1:7, "So that the proven character of your faith--more valuable than gold which, though perishable, is refined by fire--may result in praise, glory and honors at the revelation of Jesus Christ." "Forged" places an emphasis on refining our faith and a biblical understanding regarding various theological points and applicable topics.

Wednesdays with Kindle46

1st & 3rd Wednesdays, September through May
6:45-8:30pm
Drop-off & Pick-up at the NOrth Entrance
meet In the Weaverland children's area (Unless otherwise specified)

A ministry unique to Weaverland is our Wednesday night preteen ministry, where the name Kindle46 originated! While there are a handful of combined events throughout the course of the school year, Kindle nights are designed for the boys and girls to meet separately and engage in activities and devotions that cater to their stage and interests. Most Wednesdays carry a similar schedule though special outings to local businesses or ministries make for exceptions. A regular Kindle night includes a devotional, time with small groups, followed by the nights planned activity and a snack.

Special Events for 2022-23 Year Include:

  • Barn Party
  • Rec Night
  • Service Night
  • Ice Cream Social (Girls)
  • Farm Tour (Boys)
  • 10-8 Tour (Boys)
  • And Much More!
