KIDS

We are passionate about kids encountering God through His Word in a safe and engaging environment.

WPC Families and Kids Ministry seeks to partner with parents to raise-up our children as disciples of Christ by equipping parents and ministering directly to children through relational and gospel-centered ministry.

Family discipleship is difficult – even the most devoted parents can be unsure about where to start. We hope to come alongside parents as they seek to live out their calling to raise their children as life-long followers of Christ.

We cannot wait to welcome your family to Westminster!

    Families with Special Needs

    The NOAH Ministry was created to come alongside people impacted by disability.
    The purpose of The NOAH Ministry is to facilitate inclusion in the life of the church for the individual with special needs, their family, or their caregivers...thereby bettering our world by following Jesus. Our ministry will strive to serve both member and visitor families!

    The NOAH ministry:

    • provides a “Buddy” for children who can be included in an age appropriate or graded Sunday School class and/or Children’s Church, but would benefit from having a helper to make the experience positive for all
    • explores service opportunities for members with special needs to contribute their gifts and talents to the church
    • plans events where children can safely enjoy fun and fellowship while parents or caregivers have the opportunity for fellowship
    • strives to develop relationships with families affected by disability in order to demonstrate Christ’s love by encouragement and support, especially during difficult times
    • offers (when needed) a self-contained Sunday school class for those children who cannot be a part of his/her age-appropriate class

    Infant Baptism

    Jesus established the sacrament of baptism as a physical symbol and pledge of God’s covenant promise to rescue people from their sin. Baptism represents the work of the Holy Spirit, who is poured out on God’s people to carry out his work of cleansing them from sin and strengthening them for a new life.

    Members of Westminster Presbyterian Church can celebrate welcoming our infants into the covenant community through baptism.

    If you would like to have your child baptized please contact Heather Suskin.

    Children's Membership

    As a church family, we look forward to celebrating the day when our children receive and rest upon Christ alone for their salvation. If your child is expressing interest in making a public confession of faith and taking communion please contact Heather Suskin.
