Welcome to Wayne Church Children’s Ministry!

My name is Christine Garton, and I’m the Director of Children’s Ministry. It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you into the Wayne Church family!

At Wayne Church we believe that children are a vital part of church life. We seek to engage children in worship, education, service, fellowship, and all other aspects of Christian and community life.

We have a number of programs available for children to participate in. More program information is available below.

Children are ALWAYS welcome in worship. However, we do have worship childcare for children ages 5 and younger.

I look forward to getting to know and serve you and your children! You can reach me at c.garton@wayneumc.org.

Blessings to you!
Christine Garton
