My Westwood

Teaching little hearts about God’s big love
Infant–Grade 5

Westwood is a great place to be a kid! Our Kids’ Ministry offers programs at all of our service times for kids birth through grade 5. We provide a secure, nurturing environment for children to experience age-appropriate biblical teaching. Our check-in system offers peace-of-mind for parents. We want both you and your child to have a great experience at Westwood.

Infants & Toddlers (Birth–35 months)

Staffed by caring and trained Westwood leaders, our Infant & Toddler classrooms offer a warm, nurturing environment for the littlest ones. Parents can feel comfortable attending services knowing that their young children are well cared for. Toddlers are introduced to Jesus in ways they can connect with, like through creative activities centered around music, crafts and finger plays.

3s–Grade 1

Kids age 3 through grade 1 learn about faith through creative and imaginative activities such as storytelling, music, crafts, and puppetry. Kids get to know and interact with each other. Nurturing leaders help them understand who Jesus is and how much He loves them.

Grades 2–5

Kids get to water their growing faith through our specialized curriculum. Our time together includes:

Large Group: Children experience the jam-packed excitement of powerful praise and worship, compelling teaching that makes the Bible come alive, and energizing activities.

Small Group: Kids get to know each other in same age/same gender small groups where Bible lessons are reinforced through discussion and activity time with their leader in a smaller setting.

Kids' Music & Arts

If your child loves singing, dancing or acting, our Music and Arts programs are for them. Our goal is to encourage kids to use the artistic gifts God has given them to “find their story through telling His story.” Learn more about Kids' Music and Arts for grades K–12.
