Welcome to Dayspring Children’s Ministry!
"What you believe by the time you are 13 is what you will die believing...most people's minds are made up and they believe they know what they need to know spiritually by age 13.  Their focus in absorbing religious teaching after that age is to gain reassurance and confirmation of their existing beliefs rather than to glean new insights that will redefine their foundations." (George Barna)


Children are important to Dayspring Wesleyan Church! Serious, top priority effort is given to the ministry of children. We strive to make our Children's Ministry a place where all children are welcomed, loved and valued. We want to partner with you to help your child grow into an active, passionate follower of Christ! That is why we offer a variety of age appropriate ministries where your child can engage in bible study, worship, prayer, service, and fellowship all while having fun!

Weekend Ministry Areas

It is our desire that your family’s experience at Dayspring be a happy one for your child and an enjoyable one for you. During Sunday School and Adult Worship Service, children attend an age appropriate class where they experience Bible teaching in a fun, loving and exciting environment.

*Here at Dayspring we take your child’s safety and security seriously. This is why we carefully screen all of our volunteers and have developed a top notch check in check out procedure.


During the Kidz Church Worship hours, children in the nurseries are taught Bible stories and do various fun activities in an age appropriate setting: 

First Kidz Church Worship Hour (9:15am)

Sunday mornings at 9:15 am during the first worship service hour. (Please check in your children in the DW Kidzone. 

Kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade will enjoy an action packed service that includes large group assembly and a small group connection time. Kids will be taught an application-based Bible story, sing songs and play lesson-oriented games.

Grapple (4th & 5th Grade) 10:45 am
Pre-teens are looking for meaning and relevance, and Club 45 gives them a change to “grapple” with issues that are unique to their age group and ask the spiritual questions they are wondering about.
Second Kidz Church Worship Hour (10:45 am)
Kids in Kindergarten through 3rd grade will enjoy an action packed service and learn about the love of God in ways that are relevant to their age group.  Children may be picked up and checked out following the second worship service.

You have lots of choices when it comes to churches. But, One size or style does NOT fit all. We understand that. Our goal is to stay a long way away from the two dominant reasons some people avoid church…dull and irrelevant. We try hard to be neither.

By the time you spend an hour or so on site at Dayspring we hope you will sense the energy, purpose and importance that we place on our times together. We attempt to help connect you with God and others around you.

Excellence in the areas of Worship, Children and Teens constitute our priorities. We have recently added to that our passion to connect with and serve our surrounding communities.

We want a person’s church experience to be positive, informative, friendly, supportive and related to life issues. Come join us for this wonderful journey.
