**Save the date for VBS 2020: Lost Canyon: MON, June 22 to THU, June 25. Longtime VBSers, note the day change for VBS. For years, we began on Sunday and ended on Wednesday with a dinner on Thursday. This year, we will instead begin on Monday night and Thursday will be a full evening of VBS with a concluding dessert that night. More information to follow.**
Our children’s ministry, wepckids, strives to bring the Gospel to bear in every facet of children’s lives.
Preschoolers – We offer a variety of programs for preschoolers: Preschool Quest offers four- and five-year-olds music, crafts, creative storytelling, and much more during Sunday services. The WEPC Community Preschool offers two through five-year-olds quality, God-centered education during the week.
Kindergarteners & Grade School – Children ages 5-10 have many chances to grow in the Gospel: Sunday School classes are offered every Sunday morning to teach children the content of our faith. During the school year, Wednesday evenings are time of fun and discipleship in small groups at Kids Club and 4.5 Connect (for 4th and 5th graders).
