Kids & Families

Welcome to West Side Kids

The church’s most valuable resource is its children! Today’s kids are the church leaders of tomorrow. West Side Presbyterian Church Kids & Families Ministry is a place for children to learn and grow in a loving nurturing environment. We want to provide fun and transformative experiences where kids grow strong relationships with one another and a deep love for our God. Kids celebrate Jesus year-round, whether in Sunday School’s weekly lessons and group discussions, or summertime’s Vacation Bible School.

Coming this Summer!

June 24-27, 2024

Kids will dive deep into an amazing undersea adventure where they’ll experience the ever-flowing, never-ending love of God. At Scuba VBS, kids will be immersed in the Word and discover what living water is really all about!

Sunday Mornings

We have now implemented a check-in system on Sunday mornings. When you arrive, there is a kiosk at our main entrance. All you need to do is put in the last 4 digits of your phone number. Kids will receive a nametag for them to wear and parents will receive a corresponding claim tag.

If you are new, make your way to our manned check-in station in the entry and they will help get your information entered and name tags printed.

During our 8:30am service, Kids are dismissed during the service to the narthex to work on a project.

During our 10:00am service, kids remain with their parents during our worship singing and then are dismissed to their Sunday School classes.

Nursey is available every Sunday during both services for children aged 0-3.
Worship is at the heart of our faith and Christian life, and children are welcomed and encouraged to be in worship at West Side. Worship is God-centered praise and adoration. As we worship, we are transformed and grow as followers of Jesus. Children need to be in worship just as much as adults do.
