It’s Elementary is an elementary youth group (grades 1-5) at Westminster Presbyterian Church that meets on Wednesday afternoons during the school year. Students come right after school and have time for a little fun or to do homework. Snack (peanut free) starts at 3:00 p.m., and programs begin at 3:10 p.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. Children are divided into small groups by grade to study the Bible, have a surprise activity, and have time for recreation.
- Respect others.
- Listen when teachers speak.
- Respect church property.
- Keep hands and feet to yourself.
- Always wear your name tag.
- Stay in your area of the building.
- Treat others as you would have them treat you.
Please review these rules with your child. We try to deal with regular behavior problems but will contact parents if necessary.
The Cherub Choir, developed for children in K4 and K5, exposes young voices to new sounds and experiences through music. Children sing in special Christmas and end-of-year programs. Cherubs meet in Room 207 from 3:30-4:00 beginning each October.
The Children’s Choir, which aims to teach our children the story of faith through music education, is split into two groups, Junior Choristers (1st and 2nd Grades) and Senior Choristers (3rd, 4th, and 5th Grades). Choirs develop basic music skills through singing, listening, and playing instruments. Both choirs have opportunities to lead the congregation in worship throughout the year. Choristers meet from 4:30-5:15pm on Wednesdays. Junior Choristers gather in Room 118, Seniors in the Fellowship Hall.
Parent volunteers are always needed. Please contact Katie Knauer for more information.

Vacation Bible School
This year’s Vacation – ahem – Stay-cation Bible School will be one to remember! As we look around the world, what becomes clearer each day is our deep need for compassion. The lessons learned in this special at-home VBS experience will help cultivate compassion for each other, ourselves, and the world. You can expect videos with some familiar faces, new VBS songs, crafts, Compassion in Action projects and much more! These activities will be done at home, at your own pace, the week of August 3. You just need a computer with internet access. We’ll provide the rest. Registration ended July 15.
