General Info

High 5 Kid’s
The High 5 Kid’s Ministry of Westmore Church of God is designed to engage kids and families with the Presence and Word of God to equip them to be the disciples that God has destined them to be. We join hearts and hands with parents and community as we challenge kids to know, own, live and share their faith in Jesus. High 5 represents the 5 senses through which children learn: touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing. From our large group encounter to our small group experience children are captured, engaged and transformed by the Word of God. Throughout the year, our weekly disciple- ship and outrageous special events challenge kids and families to live out their radical faith journey!

New to High 5?
Our main parking lot entrance will take you right into the children’s wing, from birth through 5th grade. The K-5 welcome center will be on your right as you enter through the main doors. Your child will safely remain here until you come to pick them up again. We are committed to providing the safest atmosphere possible for your children. High 5 Children’s Ministries is divided
into three main zones: Nursery (birth – 24 months); Preschool (2 years – 5 years old); and Elementary (K- 5th grade).

Kid’s Ministry Schedules:

Holy Seedlings Nursery
(Infants Birth – 24 months- Check-in at the Nursery)
We believe that our babies are “Holy Seedlings” that need to be planted and nurtured in a warm loving environment. Our nursery volunteers provide quality care and are sensitive to the desires and concerns of new parents. In order to help families feel comfortable in leaving their child, we provide a visual paging system in the sanctuary for easy notification if parental assistance is needed.

Kid’s Ministry Descriptions:

Boys Clubs
(Ranger Kids and Discovery Rangers, K-5th grade)
It is the purpose of the Royal Rangers to “Reach, Teach and Keep boys for Jesus Christ.” It is our prayer to develop the total boy for Christ. He will explore and learn about his surrounding world and God’s Word through merit achievements, Bible study, outdoor activities, sports, and through service projects. Oh, and do not forget Pinewood Derby racing!

Girls Clubs
(Little Sweethearts, BlueBelles and JoyBelles, K-5th grade)
All girls grades K-5th are invited on Wednesday night to build friendships, earn merits and study God’s Word. They will do crafts, object lessons and journaling. We believe that by establishing a firm foundation in the faith of our children at an early age, they will seek to become virtuous women (Proverbs 31:10)

Elementary Choirs
(High Praises K-5th grade, Cherub choir 2-5 yrs)
Children love to sing. What better way to develop this ability than in singing praises to Jesus. Each year High Praises hosts a Spring and Christmas Musical. During the school year High Praises host a Spring and Christmas musical. During the summer the kids showcase their God-given talents weekly in the Westmore’s Got Talent competition.

High 5 Kids Service
(K-5th grade)
High 5 is an hour and a half weekly program that uses music, drama and storytelling to communicate the eternal truths of God’s word. You’ll find that our children’s church parallels our adult service in many ways. We feature praise and worship, offerings, ushers, altar ministry and Bible teaching. Each month students learn about a different Biblical virtue that is wrapped around stories from God’s Word. Students are encouraged to go and live out the truths of God’s Word every day!

High 5 Jr.
(2-5 yrs)
Preschoolers are engaged in learning through music, puppets, crafts, object lessons, and Bible teaching each Sunday. Each month they study a Bible truth that is reinforced weekly through memory verses and Bible stories.

Children’s Focus
Is a special time for students to Find, Own, Connect, Understand, and Serve in the body of Christ. Children’s FOCUS includes a time of praise and worship, small group discussions, and fun games and activities reinforcing the Sunday morning High 5 Kid’s message. We have separate Nursery, Preschool, and Elementary FOCUS classes.
