Kids

Our passion and privilege is to help K – 5th grade kids grow in faith as they learn what a relationship with Jesus Christ looks like at a young age.

Our goal through Kids Ministry at West Jackson is to help children know Jesus as their Savior and grow in their faith as they live for him. Each week on Sundays and Wednesdays, our K-5th graders come together to worship, learn, and grow in community in age-specific ways.

Weekly Activities

Each week we have children from K – 5th grade gather together in the Kids wing upstairs for fun activities, small group activities, and Bible teaching. Parents can drop off their children by entering the North Entrance (by the Fellowship Hall) on the second floor.

NEXT LEVEL – 4th and 5th Grade Discipleship

We want to better equip older kids to take hold of their faith as their own. Next Level is a chance to do just that, through serving and Small Groups. 4th and 5th graders have clearly defined opportunities to serve during our kids midweek large group, then they break out for focused discipleship through small groups.

  • Family Worship @ 10:30a (Worship Center w/ Parents)

I’m a Christian. Now What? Class

Kickoff Lunch Sunday, February 18 | following the service

We are excited to offer a brand new class called “I’m a Christian, Now What?” Through this class we hope to help kids see the importance of personal spiritual growth and teach some basics of Christian faith and practice. There will also be some opportunities for you to talk with your child at home about what they’re learning each week!

The class will meet during our regular 9:00am on-campus community group time and will last for five weeks (Feb. 25, Mar. 3, 10, 17, 24). We will host a kickoff lunch after the service on February 18th, and at least one parent should plan to attend the kickoff with each child.

This class is a follow-up to our Next Steps for Kids class. For more information, contact [email protected].
