Camp 412 (Previously Camp Zip)

June 25 – June 27 

Learn More

With the unique season of Kid’s Crossing this year, we brought our 4th-6th graders along for the last part of the year on a journey of leadership through Kid’s Crossing 412.

We focused on learning to be young leaders and examples for all believers (1 Timothy 4:12) by looking at Woodlands Church Purpose and Priorities through the lens of how we can live those priorities out as 9-12-year-olds. We will wrap up this journey through Camp 412 (previously known as Camp Zip) this summer, June 25th-June 27th.

Schedule:

  • Friday, June 25th: 5 pm-9 pm
  • Saturday, June 26th: 9 am -7 pm
  • June 27th: 8:45 am-11:30 am we’ll meet for breakfast and church altogether before pick-up with parents.

This is not an overnight camp, but rather an opportunity throughout the weekend for gathering, growing, giving, going, and being grounded in God’s Word as we seek to take steps in our faith journey with Jesus!

Foster Friends

We are looking for people who would be willing to provide a meal or childcare one time per month to help alleviate a little of the burden foster families face. When their load is lightened they can focus more time on their children and marriage and can foster longer.

Spiritual Growth Resources

Did you know there are resources available to help you grow and process the message each week?

Drop-in childcare

Monday: 5-8pm

Learn More & Register

Woodlands Kids is excited to offer Drop-In Childcare in our new nurseries.

We want to provide an opportunity for you to meet, grow, study, or work in our wonderful facility and church foyer, but we know kids can make that complicated. In an attempt to make it more accessible, we now offer drop-in Childcare on Monday evenings from 5-8 pm. Our nurseries will be staffed by trained and vetted workers ready to care for your kids.

Who: Drop-in Childcare is available on a first-come, first-serve basis for kids ages birth-12 yrs. For kids ages 4+, we ask they bring something to occupy themselves; homework, reading, or a device of some sort. We will have movies and games available, but our staff will not be able to actively entertain older kids.

Where: We are utilizing our new nurseries, situated just off our beautiful new foyer and by the Coffee Hub! You’re welcome to stay in the building or you can use the time to run errands, have a date night, hold a Bible Study, meet with their Life Group or anything you need to do! 

When: Right now, childcare is available Mondays, from 5-8 pm. You must call or text ahead to reserve your spot (although you can text day of). You’ll need to make reservations in 30-minute increments (ie – 8:30-10 am, not 9-10:15 am).

Cost: The cost is $3 per child, per hour. You can pay using cash, check or credit card when dropping off. If cost is an issue and you’re hoping to use childcare to attend a class or group, text 715-204-4572 to request a scholarship.

Making a Reservation: It’s easy! If it’s more than 24 hours away, call or text 715-204-4572 to make your reservation (phone calls will only be answered M-Th, 9 am-4 pm). If it’s within 24 hours – even if it’s immediate – text. You do not have a confirmed reservation until you hear back, but we’re expecting there will be space!

You can reserve reoccurring space, but we’ll ask you to pay to cover all the spaces you’ve reserved.

Questions? You got it. Text 715-204-4572.

Are you a new or expecting mother?

Whether it’s your first child or your fifth, we want to come alongside of you and bless you with hot meals and a small gift for you and baby. Contact the church office or email Nancy Smith for details.
