Our goal is to introduce our children to the God of the Bible who has revealed himself to us through his word, the Bible, and through his Son Jesus Christ and to encourage them to trust and follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Opportunities for Children
Nursery is provided for children up to age two. Sunday School classes are available for children beginning at age two, and are separated appropriately by age through the 5th grade. These classes are designed to teach the children basic Biblical principles that will lead to greater understanding of God's Word as children grow.

Wake Chapel offers Children’s Church during the worship service for children age 2 through kindergarten. Children are seated in the sanctuary for the first part of the worship service and are dismissed to Children’s Church just prior to the pastor's sermon. Children in first grade and older remain in the worship service for the entire time.
Our 2 & 3 Year Old Children’s Church curriculum is a supplement and reinforcement to the Gospel Light lesson the children were taught in Sunday School. Teachers also use music and crafts to reinforce the lesson. Our Pre-school and Kindergarten Children’s Church uses curriculum from Group Publishing. The lesson is often supplemented with music, service projects, and crafts.
The mission of our children's choirs is to provide opportunities for children to learn musical skills in partnership with a musical team and to use those skills in worshipping the Lord and ministering to the church body.
Children's choir is available for children in kindergarten through 5th grade.
Our children's voice and handbell choirs meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. on the second floor of the main church campus August through May.
All who would like to participate in the music ministry at Wake Chapel are encouraged to contact David Brown, Pastor of Music and Education, at 919-552-4147.
