Children’s Ministry at Westwood UMC is a fun, safe space to discover the awesome adventure of following Jesus!  Together we are learning God’s big story and how to live it out at home, at school, and in our neighborhood.


Weekly Activities

Sunday Morning

We have Sunday School classes for infants to 6th grade at 9:30 and for infants to 4th grade at 11:00. At 9:30 kids begin worshiping with their families and are dismissed to their classes after the Children’s Moment.  Preschool is on the first floor and Elementary kids meet in “God’s Backyard” on the second floor.   Every time there are 5 Sundays in one month, the fifth Sunday is Family Sunday where kids stay   in church to worship.
