We take children's ministry seriously at Washington Heights! As part of the family of God, children are significant. At Washington Heights we desire to partner with parents by helping develop their children to moral and spiritual maturity.
Age-appropriate classes are provided for preschool (3 year olds) through 6th grade children Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and 10:30 am. Class time includes Bible instruction, songs, games, Bible memory, and discovering how God's Word relates to a child's everyday life. Children are encouraged to be participants in the learning process, not just be spectators.
