Wake Forest Children's Ministry



Our children's ministry is second to none. We ensure a fun, safe, and educational time every Sunday.

About our Children's Ministries

Have kids? No worries, we've got you covered. Wake Forest UMC offers programs for kids who are 3 months old old through 5th grade. Your children will be in a safe environment where they will learn about Jesus and have a fun time doing it.  More than that, everything we do with children provides opportunities for children to share the love of God by becoming the hands and feet of Christ through serving others within our community and beyond.


WFUMC has some great options for kids:

Children's Church during 10am worship

Children's Choirs on Sunday Nights

Club 4/5 on Sunday Afternoons once per month


Plus our Big Events like Vacation Bible School, Trunk or Treat, and The Christmas Shop.


Volunteers at WFUMC are trained to create an atmosphere where families can confidently leave their children while they are in service. Every volunteer is screened with a background check. Don't worry parents - we've got this!

During Worship

We offer Children's Worship Bags to help keep kids minds and hands busy as they are in the worship space learning how to worship. 


Children's Church is offered for children ages 4-3rd grade during worship.  After the Children's Sermon, children are invited to "Follow the Flag" to the Fellowship Hall, the building next tothe playground. There, kids will hear a faith-based lesson/story, have a brief discussion, then do a craft or activity related to the story. Parents will sign out their children when they come to pick them up after worship.  

Parents are welcome and invited to walk with their kids the first time to see the location and make sure their child is comfortable. 

If you have any questions, please contact Hannah Escala, Family Ministry Assistant at hescala@wakeforestumc.org

(Volunteers can sign up here)


Children 3rd grade and up are invited to become Acolytes to help bring in the light of Christ and assist the pastors during worship.


Visiting us for the first time? No fear! Plan your visit and we'll reach out to answer any questions and be sure to have a host ready to meet you. We will meet your family, check your child into the nursery or show you where children's church will meet, and answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you!
