We Welcome Children to Westminster!
Westminster Presbyterian seeks to minister to families and children so that they can experience a place of love, safety, and faith. We welcome all children into the fellowship of our community.
CHILDREN IN WORSHIP
If you have an infant with you in worship, we welcome you to keep your child with you in the sanctuary. However, please know that there is a "Caregiver/Cry Room" to the left of the sanctuary as you enter where you can comfortably rock, change or feed your infant as well as see and hear the worship service.
Our Infant/Toddler Room
This room is for children ages 6 months to 3 years, is found in room 7 on the 2nd floor. The nursery opens at 10:15 am and closes at 12:00 noon. Our infant toddler nursery is staffed by two regular nursery care givers who provide loving, safe, gentle, and consistent care for infants ages 6 month through toddlers.
We know that some children of this age have difficulty separating from parents, and our staff is skilled at making our little ones comfortable. If your child appears to be inconsolable or needs changing, you will be contacted by the staff to come to the nursery.
All first time children need to be registered by their parents. WPC staff will help you with registration upon your arrival at the church.
Growing in God's Love Curriculum
This summer, grow in God's love! Join us in the Garden of Weedin' to learn and grow together, using the Growing in God's Love Curriculum and Story Bible. This program features a story Bible with diverse artwork and engaging popular stories, with simple follow-up questions that are designed to help your child see themselves within the story.
It’s Impactful! We believe that teaching faith-based stories to your children makes more of a lasting impact than does utilizing Sunday school teachers alone.
Children ages 3 and older are required to wear a mask.
All new children must be registered by their parents. WPC staff will help you with registration upon your arrival at the church.
Contact the Parish Coordinator if you would like to "grow in God's love" with us!
TUESDAY NIGHT TOGETHER
Tuesday Night Together meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in the fall and spring. We invite the whole family to join us for a light supper at 5:30pm in the fellowship hall, followed by Youth Group (grades 6-12) and adult education classes at 6:00pm. Childcare and children's programming is available for 5th grade and younger upon request. Everyone is welcome for all or part of TuesdayNightTogether.
All staff and volunteers who work with children have had background checks, and Westminster Presbyterian Church has a Safe Practices policy in place to keep our children safe.
