Ministries for Children

Children's MinistryOur children's ministry comes alongside parents and families as they seek to help their children discover and deepen their relationship with Jesus. 

Your child's safety is of utmost importance to us. We complete background checks on all of our ministry volunteers and are continually developing and reinforcing our safe practice policies.

AWANA

AWANA is for children ages 3 years–12th Grade. Students memorize scripture, learn practical applications, play games, and earn rewards. Younger clubs focus on memory and applications, while youth focus more on the study, application, and reading of the Bible in four years.

AWANA meets on most Friday evenings from 6:30–8:30PM in the fall. Cost per child is $65 (due upon registration). It covers the cost of book, uniform, awards, and Grand Prix participation in the spring. For other information, contact the AWANA Leadership

Children's Worship

Willow Creek Church offers a special teaching time for children (K–5th Grade) during in-person worship service, with children dismissed right before the sermon. We also offer a Pre-Kindergarten class for children ages 3-5. Children may be picked by their parent or guardian immediately after worship. For more information, contact our church office.

Communicants' Class

Our Communicants' Class is offered every spring for young students who profess faith in Jesus Christ and are ready to join the full membership of Christ's Church. Designed for 4th-5th grade children, this class will help your child understand the elements of their faith in Christ and to prepare them to partake in communion with their church family.
