West Side Kids

At West Side Church, it is our mission to provide a safe, loving and engaging environment where children can be rooted and encouraged in their relationships with Jesus Christ. 

We love to help kids see how awesome God really is!  We have programs to suit all ages and stages, and we’re confident they’ll meet great friends as they learn amazing truths about God.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our church and ministries.  And remember to check out our church FAQs, for more information as well. 

If you have children in 6th grade or older, check out our youth page to learn about our vibrant youth programs.

Infants and babies younger than 2 years old are always lovingly cared for in our well-equipped nursery, located in the pre-school area of our main building.  Little ones enjoy play time, a snack, and a Bible lesson each Sunday. 

 

Children ages 2-3, enjoy each Sunday with fun activities and Bible lessons.  They also get to be a part of our “Cherub Choir,” singing songs about our amazing God. 

Please check in your child at our welcome station just inside the main building.  

Children in pre-K and kindergarten enjoy active play time, snacks and  creative Bible lessons each Sunday. They end their time singing with our “Cherub Choir,” learning songs and actions about God’s greatness and love.
