Children

Sunday School Registration

We are delighted that you are a part of the community at Westlake UMC. There are a variety of ways for your children to worship, have fun, get to know God, and experience the deep love that God freely gives everyone. Each year we ask families to fill out a registration form for their child or children. This helps us get to know you and your family and stay in good communication with your family. Forms can be found in the office, online or by talking to Megan or any of the Children's Council members. We look forward to ministering to you and your child(ren).

Sunday School starts at 10:10am each Sunday. We have opportunities for all children from infants through 5th graders. Our Sunday School is staffed by loving volunteers and conform to the WUMC safety policy. We are committed to the faith formation of your child and are excited you are here. More information for Sunday School can be found here.

Child led worship for the whole family - every first Sunday of the month at 9:00 am.

Children First is a highly interactive worship experience geared towards families with children. Children not only participate in worship but also help lead the congregation. There's lots of singing, dancing and learning important lessons about how much God loves everyone.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help in the service please contact our Children's Ministry Director, Megan Getman

February 8-9, 2019

Wonderfully Made is a growth and development education event for 5th and 6th graders. The preteen years are hard. Changes happening to the minds, bodies and emotions of preteens make it difficult to know which way is up. Wonderfully Made aims to provide 5th and 6th graders opportunity to ask questions, get good information in a faith-based environment. The curriculum covers physical development and spiritual connection while helping preteens establish a foundation for their life in Christ. This event is a great way to help parents start the growth and development conversation with their kids.

Registration for this session is now closed. Please contact Megan Getman with any questions or waitlist information.

F.I.S.H.(Fifth In Service to Him) is a 5th grade ministry group focused on service. We gather once a month on Sunday afternoon for some fun, some service projects and to share a meal. Through fun service projects we will explore what it means to follow God in all our actions, not just in worship on Sundays. For most of these gatherings we will end with a meal shared. If you have questions or are interested in participating, please contact Megan.
