Children's Ministry

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


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

  • Nursery -- 6 weeks - 2 years

    Our Nursery allows 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.
    • When worship is over, you'll pick up your little one again in the same room
  • Sunday School -- 3 years - 5th grade

    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, the kids who have 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, head to Got Kids?
    • Sunday School leaders and other members of the Children's Ministry team are certified in the Safe Gatherings child protection training program.

  • Children's Choirs

    Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music.

    Psalm 98:4
