Children are important to God. When parents brought their children to Jesus, He welcomed them with open arms. The spiritual training of children is also important to God. Deuteronomy 6 teaches that parents are to be the primary spiritual teachers in the lives of their children. At Western Heights it is our purpose to provide a ministry to children and families that supports parents as they strive to teach their children about Jesus. Our desire is to partner with families to build strong foundations of faith in the lives of children. We would be delighted to tell you more about our ministry to children and families. Please contact the church office at (254) 776-2524.
We provide Bible Study classes for children of all ages: birth-sixth grade. Each class is taught by loving teachers who use a variety of activities to help children understand and apply the teachings of the Bible. Children are grouped in classes according to age, and each class is just the right size to provide a comfortable learning environment. Each week children will study the same topic as parents who attend our couples class. This will give families plenty to discuss together each week.

This Spring we will be introducing Raise the Roof. This children’s program is based on Psalm 95:1-2:
“Come, let’s shout praises to God, raise the roof for the Rock who saved us! Let’s march into His presence singing praises, lifting the rafters with our hymns!
This time will be filled with learning about and participating in worshiping God via song, skits, and creative performance!
