"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."

Proverbs 22:6 NIV

Our children and youth are an integral part of the body of Christ at the Viroqua and Westby United Methodist Churches.  Our mission is to uplift children, help them see Jesus, learn about Him and have a relationship with Him. We seek to provide appropriate programming for all ages whether they are toddlers or teens!  We hope and pray that we are able to equip each child in our care to be able to share their faith and gifts to the glory of God, in a safe and secure environment, while assisting them in their transition to the broader faith community within our churches and the world.

Our churches offer a variety of opportunities for children and youth to learn about God and grow in their relationship with Him. Confirmation classes will be offered for the junior high school students who are ready to take this next step in their faith journey. During the school year, each church offers Sunday school classes on Sunday mornings for youth of all ages. In the summer, we have a joint Vacation Bible School for both churches on a Sunday afternoon.
