Children's Ministries

The West Side church family LOVES children! There is no greater joy than introducing a child to the God who infinitely loves them! 

On Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m., we have The Family Class, a Bible study time for children and the adults who attend church with them. In this class, children learn Scriptural principles alongside the significant adults in their lives. This class is purposely designed to strengthen the family as both children and adults encounter the powerful Word of God together.    

The children join us in the sanctuary during the music portion of our 10:30 a.m. worship service. We love to see children and families engaged in worship. To us, they are a blessing ... not a distraction! Following the music's completion, the children are dismissed to an interactive worship experience geared specifically to them and their level of understanding. After worship has concluded, it is inspiring for our adults to watch and listen to the excitement of the children who have experienced children's church!

There are a variety of other ministry activities that take place throughout the year, including summer camp, Vacation Bible School, our annual Easter Egg Hunt and other special events designed to point children to Jesus Christ.

For our littlest worshipers, we have a nursery available during our 10:30 a.m. service for children who are not yet school-age. It is important to us that you feel safe and comfortable leaving your precious little ones in our care. To that end, all individuals working with children at West Side are required to complete MinistrySafe training. Children are a blessing, and we take our charge to care for them very seriously. A nursery schedule can be found on the Documents tab of this website.

We would count it an honor to have the children of your family share in the great things happening here at West Side!
