Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations.  Here at West Lawn, we believe that faith formation is the place to start. How? By investing in our children and partnering with their parents.

West Lawn children are fully immersed in the worship experience in their own unique way, each and every Sunday morning.  Children’s Sunday School classes are designed to help children age 3 through Grade 5 to know and love Jesus…through storytelling, crafts, games, music and more!  

Mid-week, when parents gather in a small group settings, for Bible studies, or to participate in various ministries, we provided a Stay and Play option for kids — action-packed evenings where faith meets fun.

On Sunday nights, Kids Clubs and Tween Group draw West Lawn children—and their friends—for more fun, learning, games and snacks.

Throughout the year, we hold special events, including Vacation Bible School, holiday parties, an Easter Celebration, movie nights and more!

Children of all ages are also invited to be part of our vibrant music ministry. There are special performances during worship, as well as Christmas and Spring musicals. For more information, please contact Elise Coakley at elise@westlawnumc.org.

In addition to nurturing our children, we are committed to equipping families to grow in faith together. Family workshops, social media and supplemental materials are just some of the tools we use to keep the conversation going at home. We also provide opportunities to serve others together, like our meal-packaging events. We cannot wait to meet you! kelly@westlawnumc.org

A full Children's Ministry Calendar can be found on the  Grow/West Lawn Family Section and the Events Section of the App. 

 
Developing lifelong faith is a journey. And West Lawn is here to support our young disciples and their families, every step of the way.
