“It’s Elementary!” and Tweens
Join the fun beginning Wednesday, August 29!
What are the “It’s Elementary!” and Tweens Programs?
“It’s Elementary!” and Tweens are two elementary youth groups at Westminster Presbyterian Church that meet on Wednesday afternoons during the school year. “It’s Elementary!” is for students in grades 1-3, and Tweens is for those in grades 4 and 5. 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. Associate Pastor Barbara Stoop, along with adult helpers, leads the programs each week. Children are divided into small groups by grade to study the Bible, have a surprise activity, and have time for recreation. Everyone is invited.
- 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.
