Welcome & About
Welcome to Westside Kids!
This is where you will find out all the information you need to know about the Westside Kids ministry. Our main focus is Sunday School, but we also have quarterly kids programs and other special events throughout the year. We want to honour God and serve Westside families well, so we strive for excellence in everything we do, but we know that the biggest influence in a child’s life is typically his or her parents, so we also make it our goal to encourage and equip parents in their efforts to raise their children to know and follow Jesus. That’s the big idea after all.
To Make Jesus Known.
Our vision for the kids of Westside is that through the efforts of their parents, the kids ministry leaders, others within the church body and most of all, the work of the Holy Spirit, they will:
- Grow in Christ and in spiritual maturity
- Be firmly established in faith and doctrine
- Discover, develop and fruitfully use their gifts
- Passionately embrace and pursue a God-centered vision for their lives
- Meaningfully engage in worship, study, prayer and ministry
- Apply a robust and biblical vision for manhood and womanhood
- Live courageously in the world even under pressure to conform
- Thoughtfully and effectively engage the culture for the sake of the gospel
- Are Christ-exalting, mission-minded, soul-winning, justice-pursuing, God-fearing, Christ-treasuring, joyfully self-forgetting, passion-spreading, spiritually fruitful men and women who are devoted to spreading a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all people through Jesus Christ
