Children’s Church and Youth Programs

Today, children are vulnerable to concerns that distract them from who God meant for them to be. Peer pressure, popularity, video games and social media, the cold shoulder of judgment, and the anxiety of not being good enough are a reality of growing up in our world. Many families have found in Village Church a way to give their children the support and nourishment for inner strength, healthy community, and a spiritual resource. When children develop in relationship with God and each other, they thrive with confidence.

Wellesley Village Church is a place where your children and youth will immediately feel at home. We gather children and youth together to experience the love and joy of God personally and in relationship with each other. Children’s Church and youth groups on Sundays include games, music, conversation, art, Bible stories and many entrees into a life of growing faith, joy and meaning. Children and youth will find many mentors and adults who truly care about them. In a time when many families live far from loved ones, the intergenerational community at Village Church becomes an extended family.
