Wesley and Garnet congregations each have a Sunday School where children come with their families for the first few minutes of each Sunday morning worship service, and leave the service to attend Sunday School comprised of learning, crafts, and other activities. Periodically the children participate with a lead role in a regular worship service to sing or perform a skit or role play.
2 or 3 times annually a Messy Church is held on a Friday evening geared for young families and the young at heart. Messy Church typically begins with a family-style dinner, followed by a learning circle for the children, singing, crafts, and games.
