Our Children's Ministry at West Park is Christ-Centered, Family-Focused, and Child-Targeted:

  • Christ-Centered (Philippians 3:8) - At the core of everything is Christ. By Him all things were created and through Him all things are held together. He is the head of the Church and we meet together to worship Him. Outside of Him there is no purpose.
  • Family-Focused (Deuteronomy 11:18-19) - Two combined influences make a greater impact than just two influences. We partner with parents to help establish a lasting faith in each child. 
  • Child-Targeted (1 Corinthians 9:22) - We want to immerse ourselves into and know the culture of children today. We will do what we need to in order to reach this generation for Christ. We plan activities that are age-appropriate and engaging to children. The environment in the classrooms communicate to the children that they are treasured. Songs and Bible lessons are taught in ways that will best reach and teach children. 

Our Mission is to supplement the family in reaching and leading children to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.


We want West Park to be a safe place for children. We understand that safety and security are among the child's highest needs. Children cannot learn well in an environment where they are afraid and do not feel safe emotionally, physically, or spiritually. As children arrive at church they need to feel genuine warmth and an immediate comfort level with adults who are responsible for them. We need to assure parents and children alike that we have their best interests as our top priority at all times. That's why safety is a must! Children have to face scary situations too often in their lives. We want our kids to be able to know without hesitation that they are safe at West Park!

West Park's safety policy:

  • Background Check for volunteers over 18 years (State + Federal Requirement)
  • Interview
  • Check References
  • Adults are never alone with a child
  • Windows located in every room
  • Security stickers during check in and check out
  • Security Team patrolling during services

We look forward to you joining us.  When you arrived look for the Children's check in area signage at the front of our building.  You will be greeted by on of our volunteers and your child will be checked into our database system.

We will ask for the following information:

Parent(s) or Guardian(s) name(s), address, email address and phone number.

Child's full (legal) name

Birth date, gender, grade and any special instructions (i.e. allergies, health or behavior concerns, etc.)

You and your child will be given matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit.  You will need there tags for the child's check out at the end of Service.  After check in, on of our volunteers will be happy to show you the age-appropriate room for your child. 


The average child will spend over 1000 hours every year in school and they will spend less than 50 hours in church. The average parent has more than 10 times the opportunities to discuss spiritual issues in one year than a church leader does in 10 years. The church has limited potential to impact the heart of your child. What happens at home in many ways is more important than what happens at Church!

West Park seeks and desires involvement from the child's parents both inside and outside of the church in order to help develop a faith and continued spiritual growth. 

Here at West Park, we believe that parents carry the primary spiritual burden to disciple their own children and that it's our job as a church to encourage the necessary steps to lead their families at home.
