Storytime at Ward Church

Join us every 2nd and 4th Thursday from 10-10:30 a.m. at the Ward Church Playscape and then enter into Creative Lab A for a story. Enjoy some time in the playground after hearing the story! Stories are geared toward preschool-aged children. Registration is not required.

Suggested entry doors are 1, 3, or 4. Follow signs for the playscape. Children need to attend with an adult.


Sunday preschool age experience play, storytelling, music and interaction as they learn these truths:

  • God Loves Me
  • God Made Me
  • Jesus wants to be my forever Friend

Young children are grouped by birthdate, to build friendships and coincide with school entrance. Children attending two service hours will remain in the same room through both services.

WardKids provide several special events for young children and families throughout the year, including a Christmas pageant and indoor Easter egg hunt.

Who is working with my child?

WardKids Preschool + K has paid, hourly directors who recruit and train volunteers. All volunteers complete a “Ministry for Minors” application and are screened with the authorities for the protection of your child.

What if my child has a special need or medical concern?

  • A text message will notify you in case of an emergency, illness, or need.
  • “Special Handling” stickers are available–please use on your child for any alerts such as allergies, potty training or medical concerns.
  • Hand in Hand ministry provides one-on-one “cheergivers” for children integrated into classrooms, and a class for children whose needs cannot be addressed in the regular classroom. All placements must be pre-arranged. Please contact Bethany Crane at or 248-374-5972.
