Education at Westminster
For Children and Youth
At Westminster we highly value the Christian education of our children. From the time they enter the church at baptism until they leave our nest, our priority is teaching them the ways of Jesus.
Sunday Morning Church School
Church School is not only about learning the lesson in the book but also about learning to be disciples. We want every child who comes to Church School to read the Bible and pray for each other.
Gather in the Sanctuary for worship and Church School will gather and move with leaders to the third floor. Once we gather, we continue in Big Group where we sing, dance, pray with and for each other, and share our joys and concerns.
All ages will have a snack and sing songs together before breaking out into their individual classes. All our children and youth are welcome and encouraged to join us! To learn more, click on the links!
For 20 & 30 somethings
Once a month, a diverse group of 20 & 30 somethings gather over good food to share what's going on in our lives. Different opinions are wanted and laughter is encouraged!
Some of us are new to Albany, others are new to church. We're married and single, pursuing school and careers. We hope you join us!
Upcoming 20s & 30s Brunches
Sunday, February 16, 2020
We'll try the French Press Cafe and Creperie on Washington Ave. Check out the menu here. Meet us there or at the Chestnut Street door and we'll walk over together. As always, you're welcome to contribute $5 and Westminster will pick up the rest.
AFTER WORSHIP: Second Hour Forums
Following worship each Sunday morning, join us for coffee and conversation downstairs! We discuss pressing community events and problems, explore Biblical texts, hear speakers, learn about local and world mission, & more. Follow the crowd!
