“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)
Treasure Seekers (Birth – Pre-k)
The earliest years of a child’s life are marked by curiosity. “Why?” becomes a common question at a very young age. Their little minds want to learn and grow. And so we aim to fill their little hearts with the treasured stories from the Bible that teach them that God made them, loves them, protects them, and guides them.
Explorers (Kindergarten – 2nd grade)
Children this age are beginning to explore what a relationship with Jesus is all about. During this time, they are ready to move beyond simply hearing the stories to beginning to understand that Jesus came to earth to be our Savior. We will begin to introduce them to the concept of being a follower of Christ and talk about what it means to become a Christian.
Trekkers (3rd – 5th grades)
Our prayer is that during this season, our children will make a profession of faith. They will have heard the stories and most will be at a point where they are able to decide for themselves if they are ready to place their trust in Jesus as their personal Savior. When they do, they begin a lifelong adventure as a follower of Christ, a trekker on the journey of faith.

A note from our children’s minister
It is my prayer that the things our children learn here at West Hills Baptist Church lead them to seek after God with their whole heart and make them long for a relationship with him. When I think of what it means to be a Christian, I think of a journey. When we make a profession of faith, it isn’t something that happens in a moment and is finished. It is the beginning of a lifelong process of transformation, a journey of faith through which we are transformed into the image of Christ more each day. It is the greatest adventure we could ever choose to undertake.
We consider it an honor and a privilege to introduce children to the exciting journey of life in Christ. Through our Sunday morning and Wednesday evening classes, our annual Vacation Bible School, summer camp, and special children’s activities, we continually seek to point kids toward a lifelong journey with God who loves them and longs to walk alongside them as they learn and grow. I hope you will bring your children and allow them to join us on this exciting adventure with Jesus.
Your traveling companion,
Minister to Children
