WVC Children’s Church Generation Upright
"WE ARE THE GENERATION OF THE UPRIGHT!"
Psalms 112:2– His seed shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
Proverbs 14:11– The house of the wicked shall be overthrown; but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
Psalms 112:4– Unto the upright ariseth light in the darkness; He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
The Bible tells us in Psalm 127:3 that children are a gift from the Lord. This God-given trust is vitally important to us all as we care for and teach your children at WVC. Parents, volunteers, and staff play an essential and influential role in making God's love real to all the children in our care. We value each child as unique and special, and our team cares for, nurtures, and reveals to each child the true love of Jesus Christ. Because of this, we have created programs that will develop their gifts and lead them to discipleship. Programs such as: GLOW, a program designed to teach our girls to become virtuous women, Boys 2 Men, a program designed to teach our boys to become Godly men and leaders of their own homes one day, and of course, many fun activities and trips that we call our FUN ZONE.
Our Children’s Church is dynamic. We have incorporated fun-filled skits and puppet ministry that encourages your children in a powerful way. Parents, you will be able to listen to sermons in the main sanctuary without distractions. Most of all, you will have total confidence that your children are being taught the powerful Word of God.
Our Children’s Church is divided into three different age groups, or “Generations,” as listed below:
Joshua Generation: 9-11 Years
A generation who believes that God will do what He said He would do. We want to receive the promises God has made. We are willing to move beyond the dead tradition and into the abundant life promised by Jesus.Joshua 1:3 – Every place upon which the sole of your foot shall tread, than have I given you. Joshua 1:5 – No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; I will not fail you or forsake you.
Chosen Generation: 6-8 Years
A generation that seems strange or peculiar to the world and refuses to apologize for it! Once we choose God, we are part of His chosen! As God distinguished the people of Israel from all other nations, He distinguishes true Christians the same way. True Christians are chosen by God from the rest of the world, to be His. Also, God’s people are of a peculiar descent and pedigree, different from the entire world! This generation will take dominion over everything God created!
1 Peter 2:9 – But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, a redeemed assembly; you should proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
Righteous Generation: 3-5 years
The Righteous Generation is victorious just because we show up!! When we choose to live righteously, we are God’s people. From the moment we recognize that God fights our battles for us and make that all-important choice to sacrifice our lives for Him, we become unstoppable.
Psalm 14:5 –For God is with the righteous generation.
“Let your light shine before others so that they may see your good works & give glory to your Father in Heaven.” This passage is taken from the Matthew 5:16 and reminds us of how important and central it is for Christians to reach out and help those who are in need. We build our outreach ministry around this scripture and have incorporated activities to support God’s Word as defined below:
**Nursing Home Visits – December annually**
**Food Bank for the Needy – February annually**
**Adopt an Orphanage – Preferably the orphanage in Bolivia that our mission groups are going to.**
