We are so excited that you have taken the time to check us out and to see what we are all about. We LOVE Jesus, and we LOVE kids! We believe that children are a gift from God, and we take our role of assisting parents in teaching their children about the Lord very seriously. At Westwood your children will have multiple opportunities to learn about God, develop meaningful friendships, and to serve through missions and ministry opportunities. Our desire is to see children come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, to develop a strong foundation on the Word of God, and to foster a desire within them to serve God and others. Please read below to learn more about us and how your children can be a part of what the Lord is doing here at Westwood!
Sunday School - 9:30am
Every Sunday morning we offer grade divided Sunday School classes in which we focus on learning from the Bible and applying its truths to our everyday lives.
Sunday Morning Worship
Our Sunday morning worship begins at 10:45am and we invite our children to join us in the sanctuary (minus our babies through pre-schoolers). Our desire is to allow families to worship together and to model before our children what true worship looks like. After the choir special our children are dismissed for Children's Church.
During our Sunday Morning services kids are excused midway through our service to attend children's church. Our children's church consists of grades K4 through 3rd grade. During this time children will have the opportunity to do crafts and learn life changing truths from the Word of God.
Every Wednesday night our kids come together for an exciting night of Extreme Kids. Extreme Kids takes place every Wednesday Night from 6:00pm - 7:00pm. Extreme Kids is for all children between 3 years old and 6th grade. Each night kids will develop a strong foundation in the Word of God through praise & worship, small group study, games, crafts and mission activities. Our ministry is broken down into the following age groups:
Sprouts: K3 - K4
Bible Buddies: K-2nd Grade
Truth Seekers: 3-4th Grade
Wired: 5th-6th Grade
This is a great time to come and meet new friends and learn about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in a fun and fast paced environment. We also have exciting "Activity Nights" planned throughout the year such as an Amazing Race, Outside Movie Nights, Glow in the Dark nights, and more. So come and be an Extreme Kid who is "Serious About Jesus"

"He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things have been created through Him and for Him." Colossians 1:15-16 (HCSB)
Here at Westwood we take the care and security of your children very seriously. Our nursery and preschool wing is a secured area, and our workers and volunteers are both professional and caring. Pam Taylor serves as our Nursery Coordinator, where she oversees both our paid staff and volunteers. You will find she and her staff to be kind and courteous. Our nursery and pre-school wing is open during every service Westwood offers. You will need to register and check your child in at the check-in window before entering the nursery/pre-school wing, however, after your first visit we just ask that you check them in. During our services this area is kept locked and secured. We do have a pager system should your presence be needed during the service. This is a fun and safe environment your children will enjoy!
