Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
– Proverbs 22:6
Wildwood cares about the spiritual development of our children and youth. Read on to learn more about the educational programs and activities we offer.
WEEKLY FOR CHILDREN & YOUTH:
SUNDAY SCHOOL: 9:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.
Children– Study will focused on “The Greatest Book in the World-The Bible!” Children ages 3 to 12 will journey into the Old Testament and the New Testament through scripture readings, memory verses, crafts, and activities to reinforce the teaching.
Youth Group – Study – Ephesians, Your Identity in Christ by Tony Merida.
Although Ephesians is one of the New Testament’s shortest in terms of word count — only 6 chapters and 155 verses — it is perhaps its most applicable to today’s culture. In addition to the divine beauty and power we find in Ephesians, this epistle also provides Paul’s most direct address about the life that emerges from a disciple of Jesus. In this epistle Paul conveys his pastoral heart for the Ephesian believers by focusing upon who they are in Christ as it relates to their struggles, their new life, community, pursuits of unity and holiness, and how to engage life’s challenges. Perhaps the most contemporary book in the New Testament, Ephesians and this study by Tony Merida offers very practical answers to basic questions about the Christian life and our identity in Christ. This study will help students better understand the importance of finding identity in Christ, and will help students better understand the relationship between our spiritual adoption and our daily lifestyle.

And they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. And everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed were together, and had all things in common; ad they began selling their property and possessions, and were sharing with all, as anyone might have need.
Acts 2: 42-47
