WestA Kids – Children’s Ministry

The West Angeles Children’s Ministry gives children of all ages the opportunity to worship God in their own unique way. Also known as “West A Kids”, our ministry creates an age-appropriate worship environment where children can LEARN about God’s Word, REFLECT on the life of Jesus Christ, and EXPERIENCE God’s abundant life through the Holy Spirit.

Under the leadership of Presiding Bishop Charles Edward Blake, Sr. and Children’s Ministry Director Kimberly Briggs, your infant through 5th grade child will experience the truth about God in a child-friendly way. It is never too early for a child to learn the Word of God. The earlier that children begin to apply the teachings of God to their daily lives, the more in touch they are with their faith on a daily basis, and into their adulthood.

We teach God’s character and principles through His Word and the example of Jesus Christ. We use praise and worship, arts and crafts, fellowship time and an interactive Bible curriculum during our classroom sessions to ensure God’s objectives are reached.


The Sunshine Band

The Sunshine Band was established by the founder of the Church Of God In Christ, Bishop Charles Harrison Mason, in 1911. 

West Angeles’ Sunshine Band continues the tradition by teaching children, ages 12 and under, about God and concepts of the Bible.  Children learn about the love of God and God’s Son, Jesus, as well as many rules of ministry.  They also learn scriptures that provide a foundation for understanding, faith, love, grace, salvation and practical precepts for living holy and productive lives.

Study groups and activities are appropriately set based on age, physical and social abilities, as well as emotional and spiritual maturity. Here, kids will have the opportunity to learn, lead, follow, teach, exploredevelop, and perform. 

The primary focus of the West Angeles Sunshine Band is to offer an opportunity for children to receive salvation in their productive years. Meaningful and wholesome activities such as music, bible study, drama, arts and crafts, field trips, and special worship services, guide our youth into the principles of godly living. Our hope is to build a partnership between home, school, and church to aid in a spiritual foundation and additional resources for each child.
