One of the things I LOVE about Wildwood is our commitment to reaching the next generation for Jesus. Wildwood has invested heavily in this endeavor for years now, and God continues to work – giving us more and more opportunities with young people. This past weekend alone, we had nearly 400 students and children attend one of our programs. This is an incredible opportunity. Now more than ever it is needed. With schools in virtual settings, church is one of the only places kids can gather and interact.

Wildwood has the BEST MESSAGE (the Gospel) to share, and the BEST FACILITY in which to share it (our children’s building & student spaces) … but in order to put all these pieces together, we all know that we need people to serve. There simply is no substitute for a consistent, caring person in the life of a child who intentionally is pointing them to Christ. We have had over 120 people already raise their hands and want to serve in these ministries at this time … but we need more. We need you.

Many of us are saddened that programs have closed or gone full virtual for kids and students. Let’s do more than just be sad. Let’s get involved and make a difference. Wildwood has a place where you can get involved and personally help the next generation in this time of need. Would you join us in this effort?

We have volunteer openings for a variety of ages at each of our 3 indoor Sunday morning service options (9:00, 10:15, and 11:30) … and we also have opportunities on Wednesday nights (from 6-7:30 beginning in September). I write this post, sincerely not wanting you all (my friends) to miss out on the chance of a lifetime … connecting a child or student to Jesus and changing the eternal trajectory of their lives. If you are interested in being involved, please reach out to our Children’s Pastor Brooke Harrison ( for details about serving with children (birth – 5th grade) or Student Pastor Abe Mahner ( for details about serving with (6th – 12th grade), or College Pastor Kevin Choate ( for details about serving with college students.

Thanks for your prayerful consideration!!

In Christ,

Pastor Mark
