Children & Youth


Children and Youth Animal Fundraiser

Westminster’s children and youth will once again be raising money to purchase livestock for a Kenyan community in need through the Presbyterian Giving Catalog. A dairy cow can provide a family in need with a reliable source of income and nourishment. Your gift also supports training in caretaking and sustainable breeding of livestock, improving the food and income security for families and villages in Kenya for years to come.


Save the date for 2019 VBS

Mark your calendars for June 17-21, 2019. This time around, we’ll be traveling “To Mars & Beyond” to explore where God’s power can take you. More information and registration forms will be available in the spring.


Westminster adopts Safe Church Policy

Why this policy?
The purpose of this policy is to create a safe environment, free of abuse of any kind, in which our youth, along with adults, may learn about and worship God.


New children’s music class

Starting Oct. 7, the children & youth are invited to a new class, called “Mad about Music & More” between services every Sunday through Dec. 23. During this time, Praise Band Leader Chris Borton will be teaching the children to sing melody, harmony, and rhythm. For those who might be too shy to sing, there will be opportunities to learn movements and instrumentals to go alone with the music.


Nurturing our most precious gift – children

Westminster treasures our children and families. Parents are always welcome to have their children stay with them during worship, but we also offer quality, loving, nurturing infant and toddler care during the 9 and 11 a.m. Sunday services. Our teachers are trained in early childhood education and fingerprinted, as well as being certified in both pediatric first aid and child/infant CPR. Parents are also invited to stay with their children in the nursery or toddler room during transition phases or until both child and parents feel comfortable.


Nurturing children’s creativity
10 a.m. Children's Worship Arts Class

Our Worship Arts Class for 1st through 5th graders is held Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. in the Cameron Room on the first floor. This 60-minute class offers children an opportunity to explore various artistic endeavors, while parents can attend one of the many adult classes offered throughout the year, or just take a stroll in the park.
