Regular Events for Children & Families

Sunday Mornings at Westminster

Westminster has taken Sunday School online! Join Pastor Jacob, Ms. Patty,  Ms. Molly (Associate for Children's Music) and Dr. Ben (Director of Music) at 10:15am on Sunday mornings for Zoom Sunday School. Each week, we share a Bible story, music, and art together based on a monthly theme. Once a month, we supply you with a fun bag of supplies!  To join, contact Patty Chamberlain.

New Moms' Network

Having a new baby is exciting, tiring, and at times overwhelming. To help support each other and make connections, Westminster is creating a network of current moms with preschool-aged children and younger who can “be there” for new moms during this season of life. We will pair a mom in the “network” with an expectant mom shortly before her baby is born. The network mom will text/call/email the new mom to check in, see how everything is going, and find if the Westminster community may be of any help. If you are interested in being a part of the network of current moms or would like more information, please contact Patty Chamberlain.
