Acolytes
Beginning in 3rd grade, Westminster children and youth are eligible to join the acolyte ministry. Our acolytes process in with the “Light, Water, and Word” each Sunday morning at the 11 a.m. worship service as visible reminders of God’s presence with us when we worship.  If you are interested in becoming an acolyte, please contact Charlotte Trafton.

John Knox Ranch
Westminster children and youth are active in the summer camping programs at Mission Presbytery’s John Knox Ranch near Wimberley, Texas.  Please contact Ellen Williams or Charlotte Trafton to discuss opportunities.

Elementary Almost Lock-ins
Every quarter, Westminster hosts Friday night “Almost Lock-ins” from 5-9 p.m. for children ages 5 – 5th grade. We have dinner together, do crafts, and usually watch a movie so parents can have a night out. Remember to bring your sleeping bag!

Westminster’s Passages Program
Westminster marks the development of a child’s faith using our Passages Program. As children grow from babies to confirmation, children develop their ability to recognize God’s good gifts in their lives. We mark this growth in worship using the Passages program. We present first graders with books written by some of our members about worship. These explain the parts of our worship service and unique features of our worship space. We present third graders with their own Bible. We present fifth graders with the Presbyterian hymnal. Please contact Charlotte Trafton if you are interested in including your child in the Passages program.
