About this ministry

Fusion is a safe space for kids to ask questions and have deep discussions about faith in small groups. It allows students to know what they believe and how to apply their faith.

Questions? Please look at our FAQs or email Mary Berndt, Director of Children’s Ministry.

Ministry Questions

Students will experience a time to meet together for fellowship. They will be taught a chronological, Christ- centered Bible lesson in a large group that examines how all Scripture gives testimony to Jesus. Students will divide into discipleship groups for application and prayer time based on grade level and gender.

Fusion is for students in fourth through sixth grade. 

Fusion meets on Sundays at 10:30 a.m., on the first floor. Check in at the main entrance of Children’s Ministry to join us!

Yes! All volunteers are thoroughly vetted, background checked and trained to make sure your child receives the best care in the safest environment. 

Ours is a well-child ministry, so please be sure your kids are free of the following symptoms for 24 hours: fever, runny nose, chronic cough, throat infections, diarrhea or any contagious illness. Children will use hand sanitizer upon arrival, and each room will be thoroughly cleaned before and after children’s programming.

We will contact you by text or, if necessary, by calling. Please keep your phone on vibrate in the worship center so we can easily reach you.

Goldfish crackers and lemonade/water are offered to students in 4th grade. Special snacks including chips and bottled water are offered to 5th and 6th-grade students. Snacks are offered between 10:15-10:40 a.m.

Drop-Off: Parents will use the kiosks in the elementary lobby to print child’s name tag and parent badge. Parents will then escort children to their classrooms.

Visitors should stop by the Elementary Desk to receive a child nametag and parent badge.

Children’s ministry volunteers will be ready to assist you with check-in and finding your child’s classroom.

Pick-Up: If parents have signed an auto-release form, your 4th-6th grade student will be released on his/her own to meet you in a designated spot. Otherwise, parents will pick up students in their classrooms. A parent badge must be presented to the teacher in order for a student to be picked up. If parents are picking up students of different classrooms be sure to tear the parent badge in half so each parent receives a sticker.

If you have lost your parent badge, you must retrieve a new one from the elementary desk.

Every fall, West End offers a communicants class to students in second grade or above who want to make a confession of faith in Jesus. Kids will share their faith with an elder and their parents, learn more about the sacraments of baptism and communion and gain a better understanding of what it means to follow Jesus. 

Classes are open to kids who have parents that are members of West End.

Please email Mary Berndt, Director of Children’s Ministry, to begin the process of becoming a volunteer. Once the application has been processed, you will be trained prior to serving in the classroom.
