Children's Ministries


Children hold a special place in the heart of Christ. At Woodhaven, we hold their hands for a while, and we pray Christ will grow in their hearts forever. 

Preschoolers and children are dearly loved at Woodhaven! We seek to provide special experiences for children in all areas of church life. We believe children have the right to discover and be all that God desires for them to be. We lead children to understanding our faith through sound biblical teaching, missions education, musical experiences, and opportunities to practice leading in worship.

Sunday School

Children's Sunday School classes are available at 9:15 a.m. Child care is available for infants and preschoolers. During the 10:30 a.m. worship service, children are invited to attend Kids Own Worship.

  /files/Ministries Images/kowlogo-09sm[1].gif Kids Own Worship is designed for Kindergartner - grade 3, providing children the opportunity to participate in a special worship time just for kids! This program is a worship and praise time where kids learn and sing worshipful songs, experience the Bible Point in meaningful ways, and get actively involved in a special prayer time to thank God through prayer and reflection.

 

Wednesday Night Kids' Mix

We invite children in grades 1 - 6 to join us on Wednesdays (September - May) for an evening of music, missions, and Bible learning that engages and challenges children to grow in Christ. The program begins at 6:15 p.m. and runs until 7:35 p.m. Each month brings a new theme to discover, and each week offers a different facet of learning to follow Jesus: Bible Drills and Thrills, Missions, Real Life and Teamwork. To kick off the session, kids join our youth in learning and singing fun worship and praise songs together.

Preschool and nursery activities are available, as well, so bring the whole family and friends! Make plans to join us for dinner each Wed. night, too. Read more.

 

VBS (Vacation  Bible School)

Vacation Bible School is an annual favorite for children and adults! Held in the evenings during June or July, this special week delivers the simple truth that God loves us through a captivating theme each year. Kids remember not only the wacky skit characters and messy crafts but also the Bible points and memory verses. Our VBS is open to the community. Friends and neighbors are welcome!

 

Special Events

Woodhaven also offers events throughout the year that are uniquely designed to help children grow in their faith and have fun with one another. Our Children's Council plans annual opportunities, including overnight retreats, family picnics, parents' nights out, and seasonal activities to celebrate Christian holidays.
