WELCOME to Children's Ministry at WFUMC!
In keeping with our church’s mission statement, “Reaching out to ALL in the name of Christ,” Children’s Ministry at WFUMC 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. We believe that even our littlest members can further God’s kingdom by serving, witnessing and spreading God’s love.
Each event, program, or activity we hold throughout the year provides young children and families with an opportunity to grow closer to God, build relationships, and serve others, through teaching, worship, and fellowship.

On-Going Programs & Ministries for Children at WFUMC
Club 4/5 is a fellowship group at Wake Forest United Methodist Church that provides a unique opportunity for fourth and fifth graders to come together for an evening of fun, fellowship, bible study and mission work. This ministry is a stepping stone to preparing these children for their transition into Youth Group in 6th grade.
Club 4/5 meets the THIRD FRIDAY of every month from 6-7:30pm in the Family Life Center. We begin each gathering with prayer, snack dinner and fellowship time, followed by time in God's word, and ending with games, crafts and/or mission activities.
The cost is a $20 per child for the year so that we may provide a snack dinner, beverages and dessert (pizza, subs, etc) each month.
Children's Ministry Event Calendar

Children ages 2 through 5th grade are invited to participate! Please check in at the table outside the Family Life Center.

We will have safety protocols in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. Parents are welcome to stay with their younger children.
If you are searching for a fun-filled, Christian-based, Summer Camp, we invite you to check out Wake Forest United Methodist Church. Our week-long, half day summer camps provide a safe environment for children to learn and grow, have fun, and make new friends through indoor and outdoor games, snacks, crafts and more!
