At the Weirton Christian Center, we are committed to serving God and Community with a focus on providing a strong foundation for children by meeting their spiritual, physical and emotional needs.
CELEBRATING 105 YEARS!
The Weirton Christian Center Is a Community Outreach Ministry under the American Baptist Home Mission Society. We are strongly supported by the West Virginia Baptist Churches and the Weirton United Way, and receive assistance from many individuals, churches foundations and organizations both locally and across the country. After a 105-year history of serving the community, the Christian Center is now located on Ivy Street and still serves as a safe, caring place for children to go after school and during the summer months. In 2021, Weirton Christian Center served 170 Children with two Hands-on Pre-school classes for 3- and 4-year-old children and students and a free after-school program, and summer program for Kindergarten through Middle School students.Throughout the year, the Christian Center provides snacks, meals, homework help and tutoring, school supplies, computer access and program training, fitness, arts and crafts, and music lessons. The “Quarters” Rewards program for attending, doing homework, grade improvement, and report card grades has been inspiring children to do better for years. Bible study, mentoring, “blessing” food bags for long weekends, field trips, clothing, and hygiene kits when there is need, holiday gifts and meals are all ways that the Center improves quality of life for these children – at no charge to them.
The work of the Center is funded through the Weirton United Way, the American Baptist Home Mission Society and the West Virginia Baptist Convention, as well as through contributions from many churches, business, individuals and ABW groups throughout the United States. We are also part of the Be United In Christ Outreach Ministry.
