Children and Young Families

 

 
 

One of the six Great Ends of the Church states that the church is responsible to shelter, nurture, and provide for the spiritual fellowship of the children of God.

(F-1.0304)

 
As Jesus welcomed the children, here at WPC children are a welcomed joy. They belong! We promise in baptism to nurture them in their faith and well-being, to pray for them, and to let them know they are loved. We are all family in Christ. God’s faithfulness is shown from one generation to the next. Each Sunday there is a time and place for  children in worship. Here we also offer childcare each Sunday, and opportunities for your child to experience love and guidance from week to week in Sunday School throughout the school year. 
We welcome and encourage you to visit us at Webster Presbyterian Church. If you have any questions about our children’s programs please contact Gayl Galen, Children Christian Education Director. ggalen@websterpres.org

Our Mission Statement

To equip and nurture the children of God with Biblical knowledge and spiritual development in order to begin their faith journey and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
 

Our Children’s Programs

 

Nursery Care

Care for infants – 3 year olds is available each Sunday from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Adult volunteers are scheduled each week to provide loving and supportive care so that parents have an opportunity for meaningful worship and adult education classes knowing that their children are cared for in a safe, clean and secure environment.

 

 

Church School Classes

A Sunday morning class called SHINE is offered each week for children PreK-5th grade.  This program begins each morning with Praise/Prayer (Music and Prayer). Throughout the month the children are involved with bible lessons, music, crafts and outreach projects. 
 
Our regular Sunday morning schedule for SHINE will begin on September 12th at 9:30. 
 
Childcare and church school activities are not offered during the summer.  Worship folders containing bible puzzles and coloring pages are available for children attending worship.

Vacation Bible School

Through our VBS programs, we have an opportunity to connect kids to God and watch them grow in their faith and understanding of Gods endless love for them and for the world around them.Our 2021 VBS program will be held July 26-28 from 9:00-11:30 am. Classes will be for children Kindergarten – 5th Grade. All children must be 5 years old by December 1, 2020 to attend.  Space is limited this summer to 10 students per class. All registrations will be taken on a first come first serve basis. For questions please contact: Gayl Galen ggalen@websterpres.org.

Bible Sunday

In October children of the Kindergarten and 3rd Grade classes are presented with a Bible of their own.

Church School Mission Project

Each year the children of our Church School classes receive their own box of offering envelopes for  stewardship giving. 100% of their giving supports a young girl through the mission outreach organization: Little Children of the Philippines.

Family Fellowship

Throughout the year there are special fellowship events for families with young children. These events may be a time just for kids to enjoy fellowship with their church school friends, a family  event for both kids and their parents to enjoy together or time for parents to enjoy an evening of fellowship while the kids enjoy a time for crafts and games.
