Sunday School

At Westminster "Sunday School" is known as "Faith Formation for All Ages."   Faith Formation Sundays offers classes for children from 9:00 to 9:50. Our kids (Preschool- age up to 5th Graders) will be engaging with a fabulous Sunday School curriculum called "Spark", which is based off the Revised Common Lectionary. This means that they will hear a Bible story in Sunday School, hear it again in a new way in worship, and then be able to integrate that learning at home with the help of family discussion handouts. Child care is available in the Nursery for our littlest ones. 

 

Kids' Leadership Sundays

We value our kids' contribution to our worshiping community! Once a month, our 2nd-5th graders participate in worship through Kids Leadership Sundays. They serve as ushers, liturgists, collect the offering, and sing. 

 

On the days they sing, they will go straight to the Music Room to rehearse at 9 am. If the Kids Choir isn't performing, they'll go first to Sunday School and then will leave a little early to go down to the Sanctuary to serve.

First Wednesday of the Month

We are excited to start Intergenerational Wednesdays on the first Wednesday of every month, starting in October. We’ll stay together as one intergenerational community to Eat Together, Play Together, Read God’s Word Together, and Pray Together. 

 

Vacation Bible School

We gather every summer for a special week of learning and fun.  VBS 2017 is scheduled for July 10 - 14, with our VBS Celebration on July 16th. We'll reveal our 2017 theme in the Spring and we're always looking for fabulous youth and adult volunteers to join in on the fun!
