Childrens' Ministry

     At Westminster, we seek to help children grow in faith and knowledge, knowing they are loved and valued by this church-family and especially by God. Standing with families, we seek to incorporate our children as active participants in the whole life of the church, nurtured by the love and care of many faithful adults. We will give our children the opportunity to minister to others in ways that are consistent with their ages, developmental abilities, and spiritual gifts.
      Whether it is in Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Children's Christmas Party, Westminster Elementary Believers, or other events throughout the year, we will give our children opportunities to hear the message of God's love, a message that is harder to hear in a world that is getting busier and louder.
     We believe our children are Disciples-In-Training and they serve Christ and the Kingdom now... not just in the future. Please look below Photos for what our Children Ministry is up to.

Westminster Elementary Believers (WEB)  What is WEB? WEB is a youth group for Westminster family and Friends in grades 2-5 this year. Join us for lots of fun, fellowship, and service to our church, community, and world!

MISSION STATEMENT: Hanging out and having fun with Christ, through service, study, worship, and fellowship.

For more info. Contact: Ms. Stephanie Russell @ 705-0020 or williamrussellnc@aol.com  OR
Ms. Alison Westbrook @ 527-5968 or awestbrook9@gmail.com
 We are looking forward to seeing you!

We offer Sunday School for children of all ages every Sunday morning at 9:45am. We are always looking for new ways to get our youngest members involved... if you have a new idea or suggestion, please contact the Christian Education Committee!

Sunday School Curriculum: "Feasting on the Word" From the nursery through older adults, we study the same texts and same stories on appropriate age levels. This concept unifies us as a Church family and allows us to discuss and live our worship experience throughout the week.

 

Practice for the 2017 Christmas Pageant Practice begins soon! Keep your eyes open!
