Westview Kids

At Westview we offer a loving supportive faith community where children can explore and experience the transforming love of God. We believe that children need to develop special relationships within the faith community, know they are valued, and get to know God personally.

We enjoy telling the stories of the Bible and helping children weave them into every aspect of their lives. Our desire is that God's word would come to life in fun and creative ways for children. 

Westview's mission statement is: To make fully devoted followers of Jesus: people who are following Jesus, making a difference in the world, growing in Christ likeness, helping others to grow in Christ likeness and ultimately helping others help others to grow in Christ likeness. Westview's desire is to disciple disciple makers. Children's Ministry is committed to aiding and nurturing this process in the lives of children entrusted to our ministry. Our desire is to see firm foundations built into the lives of our kids so that they will journey toward the ultimate goal of following Jesus to be all He created them to be.

The framework for this intentionalized journey for children is laid out in our Children's Spiritual Pathway document found below. This document was written to help promote an understanding of the spiritual growth in children.

 

SUNDAY MORNINGS:

We welcome our children in Grade 6 and under to participate in our 10am Sunday morning kids services. When you arrive at church there will be volunteers in the foyer, ready to help you digitally sign in your child.  After signing your child in, your child will stay with you in the auditorium to worship together. After our worship time, we will have our children in Grade 6 and under go to the foyer to find their leader and go to their designated classroom. When the service in the auditorium is done, please pick up your child from the classroom they are in.  

We will have five different age groups on Sunday mornings:

Nursery: 0 – 2 years old – on the main level next to the auditorium. Check your child in whenever your child is ready.

2 – 4 years old: 2nd floor. Your child will find their leaders in the foyer after worship. Please make sure to pick up your child from Room 207 after the service.

Kindergarten - Grade 1: 2nd floor. Your child will find their leaders in the foyer after worship. Please make sure to pick up your child from Room 205 after their service.

Grade 2 to 4: 2nd floor. Your child will find their leaders in the foyer after worship. Please make sure to pick up your child from Room 203 after their service. 

Grade 5 & 6: 2nd floor.  Your child will find their leaders in the foyer after worship.  If you are okay to let your child find you after the service, please let the leader know by making a note on the attendance sheet. Otherwise, please make sure to pick up your child from Room 202 after their service. 

CADRE-KIDS

Sunday, October 16 - Sunday, November 20 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Westview

Who is God? What does three Persons, but one God mean for us today? What does it mean to be made in God’s image? How does knowing all of this help me in my everyday living? Does it even matter to understand all of this? Through games, worship songs, and interactive activities, we are going to learn who God is and who we are in Him.

CADRE-Kids is open to kids that are in grades 3-6.
