Sunday Bible School

At WBC we believe in teaching sound doctrine to people of all ages.   Therefore, Sunday School is not just for children. We have been blessed with some mature believers who are good teachers of the Word of God.

Sunday Bible School for all ages starts at 10am and ends at 11am.

PARENTS! Our nursery is staffed during this hour.

If you have pre-school children, you may take them to a program just for them in room 5.

 Children

Children are a blessing from the Lord. With these blessings also come responsibilities. As stewards of God’s children, parents are responsible for helping children grow physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Churches have a responsibility toward children, too. We want to provide an environment in which children are safe, are taught at an age-appropriate level, and are encouraged to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our weekly children’s classes are taught by experienced teachers. They understand the Bible well and love to communicate it to our children. The breakdown of our classes is as follows: 0-2yrs in the nursery; 3-4yrs in room 5; Kindergarten downstairs (front); 1-2 grades downstairs (middle); 3-4 grades downstairs (back); 5-6 grades in Youth Bldg.; 7-12 grades in Youth Bldg.

Children’s Church

 During the 11:15am Sunday Morning Service, families are together as the Worship Team leads in songs of praise and worship.  After the offertory prayer, children up to grade 5 are called to Children’s church, which is a worship experience focused totally on children and building their understanding of the Bible and promoting a meaningful relationship with God.

Attention all WBC folks:

Due to competing government dictates and short notice we will NOT be open to public worship this Sunday 5/24. We will still have our live stream service! We hope to be gathering in person soon! When we are able to have public worship services please be advised that the following guidelines will be necessary:

  • 1) If you have a temperature, are sick in any way, or have a pre-existing health issue, you are encouraged to remain home and follow the live stream on Face Book.
  • 2) If you feel that you can attend a public worship service, you will be asked to wear a mask, social distance in sitting (families can sit together), there will be no hymn books or Bibles in the pews (please bring your own Bible)
  • 3) There will be no offering plate passed, or bulletins distributed. If you desire to bring your offering rather than mail it in, there will be plates at the door.
  • 4) You will be asked to come right into the worship center and be seated where you can maintain 6 feet of distance.
  • 5) At dismissal, rows will exit at different times. It is best to chat outside the building and not in the foyer. Greeting and chatting is greatly encouraged to be done outside the building.
  • 6) No coffee or water will be available. Feel free to bring your own water bottle.
  • 7) There will be no nursery or child care available at this time. Feel free to continue to watch the live stream with young children in your home.
  • At this time all our Sunday School Ministries are not available in person. We hope to start an adapted men’s and women’s Bible study in the near future.

    We are hoping that we will be able to announce public worship of our God and Savior the Lord Jesus Christ very soon! We will continue to provide the live stream this Sunday and going forward.

    In Christ, Pastor Dave
