Welcome to Woodcrest Kids! Our ministry is for children from birth to 5th grade and their families. We exist to partner with parents in leading their kids to form and grow their relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe the best way of doing this is coming alongside parents by providing resources, weekend and midweek programming, and regular encouragement in living out their faith every day.
Sunday School // 9:00 and 10:30am
Birth - Toddler
Our Nursery and Toddler rooms are designed specifically for our youngest kids. In this phase of life, kids are learning how to interact with others. With the guidance of our trained volunteers, kids will discover God's love and how to show it to others. We do this through Bible stories, age-appropriate crafts, and interactive play.
Kids in Preschool are beginning to discover where they fit into God's big plan. They are able to learn in a more structured environment through interactive Bible stories, hands-on group activities, and energetic worship.
Elementary (K - 2nd)
Our elementary kids come together for games, interactive worship, and large group teachings. Our lessons are designed to challenge kids using object lessons, critical thinking, and reflection. After our large group teaching, we split into small groups to discover how to put what we learned into practice.
Preteen (3rd - 5th)
Older elementary kids are facing much more challenges in today's world. We believe it is important to come alongside our preteens and guide them through these obstacles in an age-appropriate way. We do this by digging deeper into the Bible during small group time and discussing topics with strong small group leaders.
October - May // Every Other Sunday // 11:45 - 1:00 pm
Preteen Ministry Group (3rd - 5th)
Preteens are starting to explor their faith and want to really know what it means to have a relationship with Jesus. In Activate, we help jump start their faith explorations by creating a comfortable and safe environment as we coach them through Bible studies. Preteens learn what it meants to study their Bibles and how to use their Bibles as a guide rather than just a storybook. Lunch is served with a donation of $5 to cover the cost. Preteens can also bring their own lunches.
October - May // 6:30pm - 8pm
Welcome to Konnect!
Konnect is a "Lead Small" experience. This allows kids to really connect with eachother, connect with their leaders, and connect with God.
"Leading small" is worshiping, teaching, discussing, and playing in small groups. The same few kids sit with the same small group lead every week to build relationships. The basic philosophy is that kids who are known and loved by God's people can learn they are known and loved by God.
Konnect - Preschool (ages 3-5)
Does your preschooler watch a show over and over and over again? At this age, repetition helps kids really understand what they are hearing. In Konnect, preschoolers focus on one story all series long, allowing them to really focus on different learning from that story each week. Our kids will connect with their friends and (more importantly) God through engaging activities, prop-talks, games, and thinking questions each week.
Konnect (grades K-5th)
Every day the dedicated crew of Konnect HQ help our kids with their questions by searching God's truth for the answers. These answers are transmited to us each week through Bible stories and weekly memories verses.
At Konnect, we use a fun science fiction themed world that uses age-appropriate videos, Christ centered activities, small group connections, and famiy resources to partner with parents in leading children to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
Children with Special Needs
Breaking Down Barriers // Building on Faith
Woodcrest Kids welcomes all kids just as they are to come and learn about Jesus Christ. We understand that all children learn in different ways and need different things. We have well-trained volunteers that assist in classroom accommodations and one-on-one classroom help for all programming.
