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 // 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 // 6:30pm - 8pm
Mission Friends (ages 4-5)
Through engaging activity stations, games, and stories each week, preschoolers will move from a focus on self to a focus on others. They will discover how our Monthly Missionaries use our learnings in the mission fields by showing them how God works and loves all people around the world.
Children in Action (grades K-2nd)
Kids learn what it means to live a missional lifestyle while they participate in Bible study, mission projects, and engaging activities. Our Bible studies are expanded from what we learned on Sunday mornings. Each month we look into the life of a new missionary and how they live out what we are learning. Through missions discipleship, children come to understand that God can use them now to make a difference; even while they are young.
Activate (grades 3rd - 5th)
Preteens are starting to explore 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 means to study their Bibles and how to use their Bibles as a guide rather than just a storybook.
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.
