To keep everyone safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have temporarily suspended activities at the church. However, we are eager to stay connected as a church family. Check out our Youtube channel (WBFVA) for daily devotions, sermon summaries, daily encouragement and much more. We broadcast live on Sundays @ 11 a.m.
The WBF Children’s Ministry seeks to provide a safe, nurturing environment where our children can develop a personal relationship with Christ. Our goal is to help establish a solid foundation of truth in our children and to support our families in cultivating lifelong Christ followers. Our leaders and volunteers strive to ensure that our children have a strong grasp and deep understanding of the message of the gospel.
The Children’s Ministry is about more than just children. It’s about raising up the next generation of Christ followers in a time when the numbers of youth in the church are quickly dwindling. The Children’s Ministry is also about supporting families, by equipping and empowering parents to lead their families.
Families within the church are suffering, just as much as those outside of the church, and it is up to us, as a church body, to change that. As such, it is the desire of this ministry to not only serve our children, but also their families. In addition to instilling Biblical truths in our children, we also strive to cultivate community between our families (Rom. 1:12) in an effort to raise a generation that will walk firmly in their faith (1 Cor. 16:13).
Your child’s security and safety is of the utmost importance to us. As such, all volunteers complete a background investigation and rooms are staffed with a minimun of two volunteers. If you are new, you will be asked to register your child and will receive a unique security code to be displayed at the time of pick-up. Children that are already registered will be issued security codes electronically and the parent/guardian will be asked to present that code at the time of pick-up.
Should your child have any allergies, please let a volunteer know at the time of drop off so accommodations can be made. Rooms are nut free, but other allergens such as gluten, egg, or dairy may be present.

During 2nd Service (11 am–12:15 pm)
To help our children grow and strengthen their relationship with Christ, Children’s Church utilizes the Gospel Project curriculum. This curriculum chronologically examines the scriptures with a focus on how God’s plan of redemption unfolds.
Gospel centered messages are presented using games, multimedia and activities. To encourage hiding God’s word in their hearts (Psalm 119:11), children are also encouraged to memorize a weekly verse to earn a prize from the treasure box. Parents are also sent weekly emails that highlight the lesson to facilitate discussion and spiritual growth outside of the classroom.
