Your First Visit
Welcome to Westminster Presbyterian Church of Nashville!
If you are new to us, we invite you to visit as soon as possible and explore our many programs and service opportunities. Our ministry flows out of our worship of God. In worship, we are reminded of God's grace and claim upon our lives. The realization of this gift inspires us for ministry. We hope that you will want to join the many who learn, lead and continually seek to grow in unity of faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Westminster provides exceptional worship, educational and ministry opportunities for all ages. We are a large active congregation that provides many ways for you to engage in ministry. Worship is at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. We hope to see you here!
Your First Visit to Children's Sunday School
Sunday School listings can be found under Adult Education; Youth Ministry Koinonia; and Sunday School for Children.
We welcome all children to worship and expect that when children are in 1st grade they will begin to worship regularly with their families. WORSHIP BAGS, located in baskets just outside the sanctuary doors are available for younger and older elementary children and contain a children’s bulletin for the day along with other helpful items.
In the PC (U.S.A.) children are welcome at the Lord’s Table! In order that children might have a richer understanding of Communion, Westminster offers a special class called “Instructed Communion” to 1st graders and their families. This is a two-hour self-directed learning center event on a Sunday afternoon followed by a shared meal. To learn more about this event and its next scheduled date email Sophie Maness.
Celebrated on the third Sunday of October each year. Elementary-aged children and the children’s choirs lead a worship service that celebrates the gifts of our children and lifts up the needs of children who are at risk in our country and around the world. This service is held in conjunction with similar services celebrated by Christian, Jewish, and Muslim congregations.
Children's Christmas Eve Service
The 2:00 p.m. service celebrates young children and their families through the presentation of a Nativity play performed by the 5th graders and children’s choirs. Children are invited to bring canned food for Second Harvest Food Bank to present at the manger as their offering. Nursery care for infants and young toddlers is offered at both the 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. services.
At both the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. worship services children participate in the palm processional and the children’s choirs sing.
Children are invited to present their One Great Hour of Sharing banks during the offering during any of the three morning services (7:30 a.m., 9:15 a.m., and 11:00 a.m.). Sunday School classes do not meet on Easter Sunday.
