We are WILD about families and WILD about Jesus...

Because Jesus is WILD about you!

The Wild at Real Life is a Bible-based, age-appropriate, community for children from birth through 5th grade. Childhood is the most crucial time of development in a person's faith and we are committed to loving and teaching your children about God.
Whatever your child's age or personality, you can know they are being loved and taught right on their level. In today's difficult culture, we stand with you in making your family all it can be. We like to say it this way: Around here we are WILD about families and WILD about Jesus.

Verse of the Month

Encourage your preschool and elementary aged kids to memorize their monthly bible verse: Philippians 2:13 (NIV)They can watch the video above to learn it in sign language. Toddlers will be memorizing their monthly Big Idea: God promised to fix what was broken.

Toddlers (1 & 2 year olds) learn the same lesson/verse all month long and do different reinforcing activities each week. In November, they are learning about Creation and the Fall (Genesis 1:26-30, 3:1-15). They'll memorize the Big Idea: God promised to fix what was broken.

Month at a Glance

Current Series- "BEHIND THE SCENES"
A FOUR WEEK SERIES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT ON ESTHER
The most important part of any play is what happens “behind the scenes.” There’s lighting, wardrobe, casting, playwriting — so much has to happen perfectly to bring the production together! In the story of Esther, there is a whole lot going on behind the scenes, too. In this four-week series, kids will discover the most important character in Esther’s story isn’t always center-stage, but can often be found behind the scenes working, helping, giving support and giving peace. (Spoiler alert: It's God!) *Toddler lesson is different*

Tip of the Month

NOVEMBER
Each month we provide a new and exciting Parent Tip for you to check out. This month is all about being intentional with diversifying your community (stepping out of your bubble and into your community). We tend to stick with people who are like us, and while that's not a problem, we can miss out on meaningful relationships if we never branch outside of our norm. Watch this month's Parent Video to learn how you not only can do this yourself but help your kids build intentional relationships in their community as well.
