For families visiting or new to our congregation, the nursery is often the first and most important introduction to Westminster. We see our nursery as a Ministry for young families and their children. We have a nursery staff that is very experienced in caring for infants and toddlers. Sitters have been trained in our Child Protection Policy, CPR trained and certified, and background checked. Having a paid nursery staff helps to maintain a comfortable, nurturing environment for your child by having the same familiar faces to greet them when they come into the nursery.

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. -Proverbs 22:6
Our goal is to provide children with a strong foundation of faith and a sense of belonging. Sunday school is the perfect opportunity to accomplish that! In order to meet our families when they are most available, we are moving our Sunday school hour to the 11:00 worship service. Children 3.5 years old – 4th grade are invited to come downstairs following Time with the Children for a guided interactive Sunday school class.
Primary Class: Our older 3 year olds – Kindergarteners will be learning from the Read Aloud Bible Stories (volumes 1-5). Each Sunday they will discover a new lesson from the Bible in a very kid-friendly, colorful, and descriptive way. The little ones adore these books! There is plenty of time for snacks, activities, and free play in this room.
Intermediate Class: We will work our way through the “Holy Moly!” curriculum, a fun and interactive format that the kids love! This semester we are starting at the very beginning. How fitting for our homecoming after so many months apart. 🙂
11:00 Sunday School Opportunities:
- Nursery: 0- young 3 year olds
- Primary Class: Old 3s – Kindergarten
- Intermediate Class: 1st – 4th grades
