Advent/Christmas at West Side

West side Kids

Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.

Christmas Pageant and Birthday Party for Jesus

Join us for our annual "pop-up" Christmas Pageant at the 10:30 am service! No advance preparation is needed. Just come to church 15 minutes before the service starts and pick up a costume (animals, wise men, shepherds, angels and more). Children will be invited to participate in the interactive telling of the Christmas story. Adults get to participate too - from their seats! At 11:30 am, we'll head to the lower level to celebrate Jesus' birthday with carols, crafts, cupcakes and more!


Sunday School

We're excited to welcome your children on Sunday morning! Orange, our vibrant Sunday School strategy for preschool through 7th grade, combines the light of the church (yellow) with the heart of the family (red) to form a lifelong faith in Christ (orange). Each month has a theme—kindness, love—that is carried through with easy lessons to do at home. There’s even an app (Parent Cue) that you can use on the go! The result? Home + Church = Greater Impact. 

Sunday School takes place at 9:00 am and 10:30 am on the lower level. Nursery and Pre-K meet in rooms 211 and 215. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early to "check in."
