Children’s & Family Ministry

We offer a variety of programs and opportunities to teach children about God’s love for them and increase their knowledge and understanding of the Bible. We are committed to equipping parents with the support and resources to help them to nurture their children’s faith at home.

Volunteers who wish to serve in our ministries for children and youth are required to complete Westminster’s Child & Youth Protection Policy Training and renew their training every three years.

Sunday Morning Church School

Our Church School classes meet on Sundays, 9:45-10:45am, September through May. During the pandemic, most of our classes have met on Zoom but we hope to return to our church classrooms in Fall 2022.
