SuperStart! is an event where preteens will encounter Christ through worship, interactive teaching and small groups – all of which are designed with their unique needs and maturity in mind. Preteens who attend SuperStart! will leave the weekend with not only a great experience, but also the teachings and foundation to further amplify Christ’s call on their lives to become Kingdom Workers.
The demand for preteen-specific ministry has continued to increase within America's churches over the past decade. Many of today's church leaders realize the importance of a purposeful discipleship tactic for young people in fourth through sixth grades. These preteens need more time, space and resources. They need teaching that is specific to their age group - not too young (or "boring," as they would say it) and not too old. CIY's SuperStart! exists to help fill the void for this age group, and to come alongside the church in a fun, inventive way to reach students that are often overlooked.
Please contact our Children's Ministry Director, Brenda McFarland, if you would like to register your child for SuperStart!

The kids are hard at work putting together their Christmas songs and skits to present to everyone during our regular worship service on December 16. We hope you will join us for this great morning of worship followed by a time of fellowship and refreshment after the service.
An event just for 2nd thru 6th grade students (The grade they will enter this Fall)!
If your kids are ready for a night away from home this summer, then this is the night to make that happen! The children's ministry of WCC is excited to host this night of fun, food, movies, and very little sleeping at the church. We hope to have your child join us!
This event will be full at 30 students, so please register by July 15th!
Please be sure to download a permission slip, fill it out, and bring it to the church by the day of the event. Registering online will secure your child's spot for the event, but your child will not be allowed to stay for the event and participate if the permission slip is not filled out.

Hey parents! Next Wednesday is our winter SLAM Jam event for kids ministry! Remember that SLAM Jam is for Pre-K thru 5th grade, and this event will include an indoor snowball fight, making snow, a snowman craft, and of course hot chocolate and snowmen snacks! We hope to see your kids with us next Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 4pm.
Be sure to join us during our 10am worship service to hear our Kids Choir bring us special music through Christmas Carols. We love our kids, and we are so thrilled to have them be a part of worship with us as we celebrate Christ's birth.
We invite you to join us following worship on September 24th for dinner which will benefit the kids who will be attending CIY SuperStart next month. God has blessed them with a great chance to hear more about Him and how to follow Him better, so we are blessed with an opportunity to help them attend this retreat at a low cost. Please join us!
