What is available for my children on Sunday mornings?
Children and youth are very important to us and they make up a large portion of the Westside family. We strive to provide a safe, secure, and fun environment where they can learn about God. To ensure safety, we have check-in stations at the entrance of the preschool/ nursery area located in the lower level of the main building. Children age K-5th grade have their own children’s ministry area with a classroom check-in. One of our greeters will be happy to help get your child to the appropriate classroom.
Children are of the upmost importance to us at Westside Baptist Church. We provide a safe, loving, and Christian environment where children from birth through pre-kindergarten can worship God. Some measure of childcare is offered at nearly every event held at our church. Able and eager volunteers work with our babies and preschoolers at each of these events.
To become one of these amazing workers, please contact us in the Preschool Ministry.
Childcare is provided during all three of our Sunday morning services. During the 9:45 and 11:00 am hours, children from birth through pre-kindergarten are engaged in an exciting and age appropriate curriculum called “Hands On Bible” through Lifeway. This curriculum uses everyday objects in a “hands on” way to teach preschoolers the very same lessons that Jesus taught. Through worship, games, crafts, and activities, preschoolers are engaged and encouraged to come into a relationship with Jesus Christ.
