Children's Ministry

Kids have no reservation when it comes to faith. They freely, joyfully -- and often loudly -- connect with their God with open hearts, dancing feet, and voices full of song.


The mission of our Children's Ministry is not only to provide engaging, age-appropriate opportunities for kids to grow in their faith and love their God -- we also listen to Jesus when he commands us to stay out of their way and follow their lead in fearless faith.

  • Nursery -- 6 weeks - 2 years

    Note: At this time, we are unable to provide Nursery for our littlest kiddos. But please bring your kids to worship! Ms. Leah has activity bags available for the kids to use in worship, links to fun videos like The Pete & RePete Show, and other ways to keep them occupied.


    When we're able to again: 


    Our Nursery provides even our youngest children an opportunity to have their own engaging Sunday morning experience while their parents worship.

    • When you arrive, sign in at the Children's Ministry table in the foyer first, then head up to the Nursery in room 207. For more information on signing into the nursery, click here.
    • When worship is over, you'll pick up your little one again in the same room.
  • Sunday School -- 3 years - 5th grade

    Unfortunately, we can't gather right now like we're used to. But, children are always welcome in worship. Ms. Leah presents a weekly video Children's Time during worship and provides activity bags for all ages of kids complete with crayons, activities, and links to fun videos like The Pete & RePete Show.


    When we're able to again: 


    Sunday School at FaithWestwood begins in "big church" worship with Children's Time when all kids are invited to come to the front and listen to a special message just for them.

     

    After that, kids who are signed up for Sunday School head upstairs with their leaders for large and small group experiences. There, with active engagement in music, activities, and kid-led prayer, kids connect with God in their own special way -- joyfully and fearlessly -- just like Jesus asks us to.


    • Each Sunday, if you would like your child to participate in Sunday School, be sure to sign in at the Children's Ministry table in the foyer when you arrive. For more information on signing in to Sunday School, click here.
    • Sunday School leaders and other members of the Children's Ministry team are certified in the Safe Gatherings child protection training program.

  • VBS

    VBS stands for Vacation Bible School, but this is nothing like regular school! Every June, the whole church family comes together to put on a week of fun music and activites for the entire community to join in.
