Children and Worship
Westminster is a great place for young families with children.
Children are always welcome during worship or may also attend Church School after the Welcoming the Children.
Worship bags and other activities to do while listening to the sermon are found on the book cart outside the Sanctuary.
Throughout the year, we look for ways for children to lead in worship whether through music, liturgy, drama, art, or any other gifts .
We provide nursery care for children ages 2 and under. On the Friendly Avenue Campus, the nursery is located on the lower level in Room 113. Our nursery volunteers will provide developmentally encouraging Bible stories and activities for your child.
For children three—5th grade, Church School is offered in conjunction with worship during the year.
Children at 11am:
Nursery • Room 113
PK—4th • Room 107
Kindergarten—5th • Junior Arts and Music in Room 106
Children at 9:30am:

Children's Church School
Preschool THROUGH 5th grade
Church School for children ages 3 to 5th grade is offered each Sunday at 9:30am.
After the Welcoming the Children in worship, your child will be escorted to his/her Church School class for age-appropriate activities. Children will participate in Godly Play. With Godly Play®, we tell Bible stories to children and encourage them to enter into the stories.
Children’s Church School During the Summer
This summer, Children’s Church School will be held at the 11 o’clock hour and will begin June 9 and go through July. Children completing K-5th grade will meet together in Room 106 to study Illustrated Children's Ministry’s new curriculum: The Lords Prayer: taking it apart and putting it back together. Children P-K and younger will meet in Room 107 to explore God Loves Me. At 9:30am, K-5th grade are invited to worship with their parents.
First Sundays of the month are Communion Sundays and families are encouraged to worship together at both 9:30am and 11am.
There will be no Church School in August, but childcare will be available for age four and under. Questions? Contact Lynn Turnage (email@example.com) or Sally Zeillmann (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Outrageous Outreach is an outreach and fellowship group for our 4th-5th graders. We meet monthly—normally on a Sunday afternoon—to gather for a service project at church or the Greensboro area. Each month is a different project. Details for each event are under upcoming events and in the church newsletter. Questions? Contact Director of Adult, Children, and Family Ministries Lynn Turnage.
JAMS (Junior Arts and Music on Sunday)
Children who are ages Kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to participate in JAMS, a program offered on Sunday mornings during the school year in Room 106 at 11am that engages kids in singing, drama, movement, percussion and more!
Sunday Night Life
