Ages 3 - 2nd grade

Children are invited to share the joy of Christ through our handbell and vocal choirs.

The bell choir plays about once per month and all children who know their colors are invited to participate with our color coded handbells.

The children's choir practices the first Sunday of each month during the 10:30 service and sings 3 or 4 times per year.


8th graders

The Confirmation Program (for teenagers in 8th grade or above) is led by Pastors Jay Groat and Sigrid Rother and Director of Youth Ministry Susan Langner. Meetings are 9:30 to 10:20 Sunday morning from October to May and the class members learn more about their Christian faith to help them decide if they will confirm this as their own faith and become members of Westerville Community United Church of Christ. Additional gatherings and projects (with adult mentors) also take place at other times during the year.
