Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Matthew 19:14

We believe that Jesus loved and served children. As Jesus’ followers, we work to do the same!

We provide a children’s program during our 10:20am service to allow kids 5th grade and younger to learn and worship in an environment best suited for them. Additionally, we have Sunday School at 9:00am each Sunday for children 3 years old through 5th grade. We would love for you and your kids to join us!

For more information, please contact our Director of Children’s Ministries, Sue Masamitsu, at smasamitsu@wintersburg.org.

 

Our Mission

To partner with families to teach and live out God's truth and love, so that, in God's timing, every child will have a vibrant personal relationship with Jesus Christ and both the passion and skills to make an impact on their world for Him.

In pursuit of our mission, we want everything we do to be:

Biblically Solid. We are committed to teaching the life-changing Word of God, and nothing should detract from the clear teaching of His truth. (2 Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 40:8; Psalm 119:89-96, 105)

Creative & Fun. Our God is not boring and neither is His house! We believe everybody learns better when they are having fun, and our teaching strives to captivate our children's hearts, minds, imaginations, and souls, accommodating different learning styles and levels. (Psalm 34:8; Psalm 8)

Child Affirming. This is a place where children are treasured and will feel loved, accepted, and valued. We believe that the Lord can use children to make a difference, and encourage them to discover and develop their gifts to minister to others. (Matthew 19:13-15; 1 Timothy 4:12)

Application Oriented. We are teaching not merely to inform, but to transform hearts and lives. We want every child to understand how God's truth makes a difference in their daily life. (James 1:22, 25; 1 Timothy 4:12)

Relationship Building. The most powerful lesson we can teach is through our own example. Our teachers try to make each child feel appreciated and loved, and we encourage friendships among the families in our classrooms. (John 13:34; Deuteronomy 6:1-9)
