At Wildwood Community Church, we are for following Jesus together to the glory of God.  By God’s grace, we have the privilege of inviting various spheres to join us in that journey . . . and one of those we are “for” is the next generation.  What a privilege it is to “commend God’s work to the next generation, so we can declare together His mighty acts (Psalm 145:4).”

In our world today, it is common for older generations to either worry about the world our kids are inheriting or critique the mindset of those who follow us.  But, as Christians, we have a much better opportunity than simply being a worrier or a critic . . . we can offer THE HOPE that all generations need — the hope of Jesus Christ and the power of transformation that His Gospel brings!!!

So, as we head towards the start of another school year, would you consider shining light for the next generation?  At Wildwood there are a number of different opportunities to do this, including opportunities in our children and student ministries.

Specifically, we have a few openings left on our Sunday morning and Wednesday night serving teams.  Just a small investment of your time can reap eternal dividends in the life of a child.  Join the 300+ who serve on our Next Gen teams by stepping up for one of the roles listed below.

As it relates to our children’s ministry (birth – 5th grade) . . .

Our Sunday morning leaders serve from August-July on either the even month team (Aug, Oct, Dec, Feb, Apr & June) or the odd month team (Sept, Nov, Jan, Mar, May & July). Our Wednesday evening leaders serve from 6-7:30pm beginning September 11th and then wrapping up mid-April. Wednesday evening programming is off for all holidays. Our team provides training, all lessons, materials and everything that our  leaders need to be successful with our kids.
