Children in Worship
In their own way, children can help adults reexamine how they themselves engage in worship.
Westminster welcomes children of all ages in worship believing that being part of a worshipping community is important to their spiritual formation. Children and adults each bring special gifts and contributions to worship. Children bring wonder, excitement and spontaneity. In their own way, children can help adults reexamine how they themselves engage in worship. Worshipping together provides the opportunity to rethink the meaning of sacred and holy and provides many opportunities to exercise patience, grace and love.
Parents who would like to bring their children for only a part of the service may do so. Leaving and returning to the sanctuary is understood and encouraged as families learn to worship together. Activity bags are available in the narthex for children’s use during worship.
Ushers can direct visitors to the nursery located in Room 2 of the Education Wing. Our wonderful nursery staff, who has many years of service to Westminster, provide loving care for infants and preschoolers in a safe and welcoming environment during each worship service.
