Second Grade Bible Presentation
WDMCC recognizes the importance of teaching children the great stories of the Bible and how to use the Bible as a guide for their lives. It’s a tradition for Children’s Ministries to present Bibles to 2nd grade children as they begin regular Bible use in Church School.


2018 Membership Class
All children entering 5th grade (and any unbaptized youth) are invited to
join this special class, held on Wednesdays (4-5 p.m.).

Discussion focuses on faith, hope, prayer, communion, baptism, and the beliefs of
the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Included will be special guest speakers,
community service projects, amazing field trips and fun activities.
Each class member will also be assigned an elder as their mentor for the year.

The Membership Class also gathers a 2nd time each Sunday morning (9:30-10:15)
in the gym bldg-room 124. Each Sunday will be filled with fun, exciting ways to look
at faithful topics impacting today’s youth.

If you have a 5th grade child and have not received a letter from the church, contact the office.
