Sunday School - WPC Kids

For Youth Ministry:   Middle School    High School

 

Our Christian Education program seeks to instill the knowledge and love of God and Jesus Christ through scripture, prayer and practice. We teach our children skills that help them live according to Jesus' teachings, such as "Love one another as yourself" and "love God with all your heart, soul and mind." We encourage appreciation of the diversity among God's children and the wonder of all God's creation. We want our children and youth to know and experience God's unconditional love and acceptance here at Westminster and beyond.

Ideas for Family Worship

Some worshipful experiences for families:

 

DAILY

  • Mornings, share with each family member the plans, hopes, and projects for the day. Pray for each other and leave the house knowing the prayers of the others are with you.
  • After School or Dinner or Bedtime, share the events of the day - was there a time when you felt God's presence - the sense of the prayers of your family with you.

WEEKLY

Set aside some time when all family members can be present. Learn a church song, write a prayer, read some scripture, share a special event during the week when God's presence was felt. Use silence so each membe can share his or her most personal fears, desires, and thank yous with God.

OUTDOORS

When on drives, at the store, the ballgame, while on vacation, working in the yard or garden - look around, closely examine a plant, tree, flower. Look around at the hills, meadows, ocean, and forest, to see the wonders. Lie on your back and look at the stars or clouds in the heavens. Worship God in nature.

SEASONAL

During Advent, Lent, do something special for another family member. As a family do something for someone else - an elderly person shut-in. Plan a worship service for the family. Include God in birthdays; thank God for the special person, using song, poetry, prose, and prayer.
