Wee Can Know
We exist to provide Christian education for children in preschool, kindergarten, and elementary schools in the community. "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverb 22:6
We do this through Bible Clubs in After-School Programs, Child Development Centers, and Community Centers.
We serve the children of Greater New Orleans and train parents, teachers, and workers not only in GNO, but also the North Gulf Coast and places around the world.
We train volunteers for weekly after-school Good News Club presently in 12 schools and communities impacting over 400 children in Greater New Orleans
We provide seasonal bible programs throughout the year, this school year we've held 16 seasonal meetings, teaching 183 children
We provide free educational resources for children and parents to help strengthen their Christian faith. This Mardi Gras we distributed 662 packets at Child Development Centers and in the Greater New Orleans community
A parent, C.R., recently shared how WCK's "New Believer's Guide" helped her find the peace with God she needed in her life. She is now attending church and making wiser decisions.
A child, F.C., explained how he had behavior problems in school with fighting. He said that since attending WCK's weekly Bible Club, he no longer has the problems he once faced. He is learning to pray and ask God for help when he feels challenged.
A youth, N.R., served nine months in St Bernard jail for stealing. During this time, WCK provided visits and correspondence giving him spiritual counsel. After his recent release, he expressed his appreciation, shared bible verses that helped him, and spoke with optimism about his future. Now his mother, brother, nephew, and brother's girlfriend are attending Celebration Church in Arabi.
A teacher, V.B., saw a need with the many children in her neighborhood. The children needed guidance and she was concerned for their future. As a result of our volunteer training, she now opens her home to a weekly Good News Club and sees a transformation in the children's lives. She also has many opportunities to provide spiritual guidance for the parents.
