Children’s Table

All children are invited to gather at the Children’s Table following the anthem for a quiet activity. Along with a craft activity they will find Children’s Bulletins in two different developmental levels containing activities relating to the day.

During Epiphany we remember Jesus’ ministry. Jesus called disciples. Some of Jesus’ disciples were fishermen. This Sunday, January 21, at the Children’s Table you are invited to decorate a fish to help you remember that we are all disciples and that we are called to share the good news of Jesus with others. For more information about the Children’s Table, contact Teri Skakum, Child and Family Coordinator, at teri@westminsterchurch.org.

Along with a craft activity they will find Children’s Bulletins in two different developmental levels containing activities relating to the day. During Epiphany we remember that the Wise Men followed a star that brought them to the Light of the World. We use the word light to describe Jesus because he shows us the way.
