The Family Ministry at Westwood Baptist Church aims to support the families within its community. Its primary goal is to lead the younger generation towards a deeper understanding of God, fostering love for Him, and demonstrating His teachings. The ministry works in partnership with parents, offering encouragement, resources, and assistance to supplement their own efforts. Even those who are not members of the church are welcome, as the ministry hopes to share the transformative power of Jesus Christ with them and their families.
Westwood Baptist’s Family Ministry exists to serve the families of Westwood Baptist Church. The purpose of the ministry is to guide the next generation to know God, love God, and show God. The ministry will walk alongside parents by encouraging, equipping, and supplementing the ministry being done at home. As for those that have parents who are not members of Westwood Baptist Church, the ministry desires to see their lives transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as their family.
We provide a range of activities for children at our church. Along with our Sunday Morning Worship Service, we have Children's Church available for children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Children can attend this service during the offering. The Children's Church is available year-round on the first, second, and third Sundays of each month.
For children in grades 4th through 6th, we have a Bible Drill Program from September to April. This program is focused on Scripture memorization and is highly-structured.
We also offer a WBC Children's Choir program for children in Kindergarten through 6th grade. The program teaches basic music concepts and practices God-honoring songs for special church events. After music time, Royal Ambassadors (RA's) and Girl's in Action (GA's) meet where children can learn about mission work.
During Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, our youth go through entire books of the Bible using a method of Bible Study known as the Seven Arrows of Bible Reading. Additionally, we hold Equip classes which are 11-week courses covering doctrine, Bible, and spiritual foundations for the entire church. We highly encourage our youth to partake in these inter-generational classes.
