Westminster welcomes children warmly—for teaching, learning, caring,
and having fun together!
The church is one of the few places in our culture where many generations naturally come together in community. Our ministry creates opportunities for children, youth, and adults to be in fellowship with one another as we grow together as followers of Christ in faith, trust, and love.
Sundays at 9:15am (September–May)
Church School for ages 3 through 12th grade is held in person at Westminster each week. Children and teachers from kindergarten and up gather in the Chapel each Sunday at 9:15 am and then move to age-specific classrooms, finishing at 10:15 am.
Sundays | 10:45-11:30am | Chapel
Children attend the beginning of worship with their families and then are invited to Children’s Church in the Chapel. They are escorted from the sanctuary by staff and caregiver volunteers for a special programming in the chapel and in rooms 209-210. Volunteers and staff lead worship, singing, storytelling, and games in a relaxed and nurturing environment. Children return to the sanctuary before the end of service.
