Welcome to Children's & Family Ministry

The purpose of Children’s & Family Ministry at Westminster Presbyterian Church is to help support families develop and nurture their children’s faith in Jesus Christ. We teach children birth through sixth grade through Bible lessons, scripture, activities, worship and songs, outreach, prayer, and Christian example. Please feel free to contact our staff for additional information or to answer any questions.

For 2019-2020, the Tru curriculum will be used for all grade levels. Tru is a dynamic curriculum that tells God’s Big Story in chronological order, offering relationship building activities that reinforce the story for each age group. Tru is written with the goal of engaging children so that they recognize their own part of God’s Big Story.

Care is provided during all Sunday morning services by certified staff members from 8:20 through noon for children 3 months through 3 years old. Children 2 and 3 years of age will have some playtime participate and then participate in a short Bible Lesson and prayer. Please enter Room 237 to be welcomed and have your child registered.

JAM registration

Students in the 5th and 6th grades are invited to join us for JAM on Wednesdays evenings. JAM offers opportunities for fun, fellowship, and faith as students participate in Bible study, discussion, games, activities, mission projects, and more.

Every Wednesday night, we invite you to have dinner with us in the Yahweh Café from 5 to 6 p.m., and then stick around for JAM from 6 to 8 p.m.

During the school year, Wednesday evenings offer another opportunity for families to come together. There are weekly family-friendly dinners from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. in Fellowship Hall, and a variety of special programs and education experiences to create a vibrant atmosphere. Families and individuals are invited to join us for any part or all of each week’s events. Watch the Ministry Events page for upcoming workshops and other opportunities for children of specific ages and their parents.

Groups that meet on Wednesday nights include:

Throughout the year there will Bible Stories and workshops offered for PreK-4th grade following family dinners.

Children in 2nd grade and above (and their parents) are invited to attend sacrament classes during the school year. The classes focus on Baptism and Communion and help prepare children to participate in communion during the worship service.

Each summer we offer a one week Bible school experience to children using music, story-telling, games, crafts, snacks, and lots of fun, children learn more about God.

In 2019, we learned about how when life is wild, God is good! With the help of 112 volunteers, we served 208 students. A huge thank you to all involved!
