“Active” is a great word used to describe our children’s ministry. The children have many opportunities during the year to grow in the basics of their faith through Bible study classes, Vacation Bible School, and AWANA throughout the school year.
Children that come through the Children’s ministry at Westside develop a great foundation for their faith through Bible studies on Sunday morning through the Team Kid program on Wednesday nights that teach the importance of the scriptures by memorization and application. There are also great opportunities for the younger children to experience the love of God in their early stages from the Bible study teachers on Sunday morning and through children’s church during the morning worship.
Children’s Mid-Week Program
Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30pm
AWANA is one of the best known programs for children in the evangelical church. They program contains all the fun and games that many programs include but the key to AWANA is the focus on the Scriptures. Children are challenged each week to “hide God’s word in their hearts” on a weekly basis. If you would like more information about AWANA contact the church.
During the Summer the its W.O.W. for the Kids. W.O.W. (Word of Wednesday’s) is a fun time where the kids can play games, eat pizza, and have a craft centered around a Bible lesson.
