Children

This fall we will walk together with the Joyful Path curriculum from Progressive Christianity.  The first theme we will explore is Connecting with Kindness. We will connect to this theme through all aspects of our congregational life.

As we journey together we welcome input in further fleshing out those values and ideals which are important to us at Westminster and how to nurture our children’s relationship with the church. We have a unique opportunity for children to participate with adults in the life and ministry of Westminster.  The following are some of the elements that have been identified as important for our children’s faith formation:

  • Adult involvement in our children's lives (feeling valued by and connected with caring adults, including college students)
  • Experience of journeying with a community of faith (belonging, our faith is expressed in community, children’s decision-making affirmed)
  • Love for Church (including worship skills, familiarity with the Bible and other spiritual teachings)
  • Equality and Social Justice (service projects, peaceful conflict resolution, faith rooted advocacy)

 Here are some of the ways our children are involved in the life of the church:

  • Our children actively participate in worship as liturgists, musicians, ushers, media and sound volunteers.
  • In reaching out to our homebound members and friends, children make and deliver Easter Baskets (facilitated by Ferenc Relle), as well as Christmas bags.
  • Facilitate Souper Bowl of Caring collection which is contributed to Wooster’s Trinity United Church of Christ breakfast program.
