The Children’s Table

The Children’s Table is on the move, and is now called Sunday School! Great news! Our Children’s ministry program has experienced a growth spurt — and has outgrown its space and its name. Effectively immediately, the Children’s Table, now called our Sunday School class, will meet in the Chapel for their time together on Sunday mornings. We at Westminster are grateful for the wonderful community of children and their families in our congregation, and for the excellent children’s programming made possible thanks to the leadership of our fantastic Children’s Coordinator Katelyn!
