Children and Young Families
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
Westminster’s nursery is for our youngest worshipers (0-4 years old) throughout the year. Here are the times we are available due to changes in our worship schedule:
- Summer (5/28/18-9/2/18): 9:45 – 11:15
- Regularly (9/9/18 – 5/26/19): 8:45 – 12:15
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 4 years old – 4th grade are invited to come downstairs following Time with the Children for a guided interactive Sunday school class. We will work our way through the “Holy Moly!” curriculum, a fun and interactive format that we know the kids will love!
- Nursery: 0-3 years old
- Primary Class: 4 years old – Kindergarten
- Intermediate Class: 1st – 4th grades

Kids Club is an opportunity for the children of Westminster to gather for food, fellowship and fun! Activities are designed for children ages PreK – 4th grade and will be based on seasonal events. We will meet once a month September through May. Families are welcome to join us for any of our events. Most activities will begin right after the 11:00 worship service and last less than an hour. Dates that do not follow this schedule are indicated with a star.
