“And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”

— Matthew 18:5

Children are welcome in worship

Children are invited to the Aldersgate Room at the back of the sanctuary for play, crafts, and Bible stories with our volunteers throughout the service.

The Aldersgate Room is just off the sanctuary within view of the congregation, so children can rejoin the service at any time. Indeed, children are encouraged to be full participants in worship, praying, singing, taking communion, and sharing the Peace of Christ, whenever they feel led. Children are also welcome to bring play materials from the Aldersgate room back into the sanctuary to draw or play near their families.


At Wesley we welcome all the sounds and activities that babies and children bring to worship!


If a child is with our volunteers in the Aldersgate room and needs a diaper change or other care that teachers cannot provide, teachers will text parents or otherwise alert them.

We have installed vegetable gardens in our playground, with several beds for children! When possible and appropriate, we will incorporate gardening into our Sunday School curriculum.
