Sunday School

Though in-person worship, including Sunday School is now cancelled until the order from the Governor of California changes, we have provided resources for you to do Sunday School at home with your children and students. Sunday School is currently offered on Sunday mornings via Zoom. Please contact our Interim Director of Children & Family Ministries, Brooke Larson, to be added to the email list and receive the Zoom link to join.

We want our children to experience the best Christian Education program possible.  To that end, we focus on utilizing all learning modes to help us better understand God's message so we can then apply Jesus' teaching to our everyday lives.

We hope YOUR child will come for Sunday School! It is offered for elementary age children (K-5th) during the worship service. Children are invited to experience worship with their family. During the 2nd hymn, the children leave the sanctuary and are escorted to Room 5 for Sunday School.

We don't just listen to a Bible story: we experience it through science, art, music, and food.  These are ways to understand the message more clearly and bring the Bible to life. Children have a unique ability to get to the heart of a matter and that is evident in our unique interactive "Prayer Wall" time.

We are enjoying learning to become a caring community of followers of Jesus and hope you will come join us!

Music for Kids

Children’s voices bring charming vitality and beauty to the worship experience.

Seasonal Selections:
During Advent and Lent, the Children's Choir performs during the worship services.  
The Children’s Choir meets after worship during Kid Konnections, where both missions and music is the focus.

Summer Musical:

We kick off the summer with a musical production that is fresh and upbeat.

In 2019, our children performed The Born Again Identity, as they helped us unravel the mysteries of Jesus' words.

Christmas Pageant: 

Each December the sanctuary is transformed into the setting of Jesus' birth. Different music is used to convey the Christmas story in a delightfully creative way. The kids enjoy getting costumed and being able to portray a character to help bring the Christmas story to life.


Child-care is available for infants through four-year-olds each Sunday morning. There is a special preschool-age Sunday School with Bible story time and age-appropriate activities during each worship service.

If parents wish to attend one of our adult spiritual growth opportunities on Sunday morning, their young children may stay in the nursery and elementary-age children may go to Kid Konnections.

Kid Konnections

After worship, there is always a program for children.  Child-care is available (birth to 4) and the elementary kids (K-5th) focus on mission projects or Children’s Choir.

Parents:  You have a number of ongoing adult education options – Faith, Search, and Support, Adult Bible Forum,  and Faith Conversations.  In addition, Faith Connections, a small group Bible study for parents, meets periodically.  It's a time for sharing personal stories and applying Biblical teachings to everyday life.

Family Events

Our Children and Family Ministries Committee believes that creating community is part of God's mission for us to fulfill. Having a sense of belonging is one of the best ways for people to get connected and stay connected with a church. To help build ties between children, families and parents, we hold a number of special events throughout the year:

  • holiday events

    • Trunk or Treat the week of Halloween with games and dinner
    • Easter Egg Hunt (with the Easter Bunny!), lawn games and picnic at a park
    • Christmas Break for Parents - The children enjoy art, music, games, and snacks at the church while the parents take time to do Christmas shopping or simple enjoy a quiet cup of coffee together.

  • family mixers

    These gatherings feature a catered dinner with kid-friendly and adult favorites for the entrees. Then child-care is provided, so the kids are supervised while they "hang out" or watch a movie. This gives the grown-ups an opportunity for fellowship, to play games, discuss a current topic, or just share stories of their journeys through parenthood.

  • family retreat

    Families with children of ALL ages are encouraged to attend the annual Family Retreat.  WPC staff will lead activities with children from K – 12th grade.  Child-care workers will do activities with the nursery through preschool-age children.  A guest speaker will lead the adult sessions focusing on a special theme.
