And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.” Matthew 18:3-5 (NIV)


Children are a blessing, and at Welborne we are mindful of that. We have age-appropriate ministries for children from infants all the way up to fifth graders. Our ministries attend to the whole child, to help them learn and grow spiritually, emotionally, and socially. By helping them to be formed by the love of Christ, we do our part to raise them up as world-changing disciples.

Children’s Message

We have a children’s message at each worship service.  During the school year, following that message, children 3 years through 3rd grade are invited to attend:

Children’s Church

A volunteer will meet them at the rear of the sanctuary to walk them over.   In the summer months, we give our Children’s Church volunteers a vacation, and we have worship buddies (stuffed animals) and quiet activities for kids that are related to the message of the day.

Children’s Sunday School

Children’s Sunday School starts on Sunday, September 10th and is held every Sunday from 10:00-10:45.  Children ages 3 through 5th grade will meet together in room 202 for a morning of music, bible lesson, crafts and games to celebrate the love of God.

For Children in Grades 3-5 there will be a class during the Sunday 9 am service from Sept. 24th – Oct. 15, 2017 called Getting to Know God.  All are welcome to participate.
