WELCOME TO
WOODLANDS KIDS ONLINE!

We are excited to begin in-person kids programming on december 6th for infants-6th grade.

We know this is a challenging time for every family to make decisions regarding the health and wellbeing of theirselves and those around them. As we open our new worship center for regular Sunday services, we are also opening our Kids programs: nurseries, preschool classes, and Kids church for elementary aged kids. Our priority is to provide a great, safe experience which points to Jesus and engages kids at ever stage. 

Locations: Our new nurseries are next to our new worship center. Our preschool classes will meet in our old infant and 1’s nursery. And our elementary Kids church will meet in the gym. If you’re a family with preschool or elementary aged kids, please follow the exterior sinage to the “Family Check-in Entrace.” 

Service Times: We’ll provide programming at the 8:30 and 10:30 services. 

Safety Protocols: 

Check in/out: We will continue to require all kids check in and all adults provide check out slips while picking up your kids. 

Cleaning: We will have hand sanitizer available throughout our ministry areas. All surfaces will be regularly wiped down during service times. Before each service, toys and areas will be safely sanitized for the upcoming service.

Masks: As per our our state-wide mandate, we’re asking all our kids at Woodlands on Sunday mornings ages 5 and above to wear a mask.  

Distancing: We will do everything within our power to make sure our kids a socially distanced at all times during our ministries. Ultimately, that means we will never program in any way that would ask kids to not distance. We will remind kids and encourage kids in a healthy way to be safe in their distancing during service is for the safety of others. 

the KIDS HOTLINE NUMBER IS: 715-204-4572.

If you have questions, please text them to our hotline number!

What is Woodlands Kids @HOME?

@HOME has been rethought to bring you a dynamic kids curriculum for families and small groups that matches the Sunday sermon series. Each week, check here for a variety of elements to help teach and reinforce profound biblical truth in kids!

Who is @HOME for?

@HOME is written for two audiences: families, or kids who are part of a Life Group. If mom or dad attends a Life Group, Woodlands Kids can provide volunteers to run an @HOME program during your group time. However, if you’re not in a life group, parents can use @HOME any time during the week to teach and explore the current lessons! 

What should I expect?

Every Friday by 4pm, the upcoming week’s curriculum will be published here, on the website. It will include both video and in-person elements, including crafts, games, activties, discussion questions, Woodladns in the Word tie-ins, video teaching, worship and more. It’s enough content to build a 90 minute program. 

If you’re using @HOME as a family, pick and choose what you want to use each week. If you have quesetions, text 715-204-4572 and we’d love to help you get started!

How might it look for my family?

If you’re using @HOME as a family, we suggest you start by downloading the curriculum guide. From there, consider watching the teaching video, looking at the Teaching Explanation or Small Group Discussion questions, and playing a worship song or two. You can also use the craft or game if that fits with your family! The curriculum is flexible to fit a variety of situations and family types. 

What should my @HOME group schedule be?

If you’re leading an @HOME group, start by downloading and reading the curriculum guide. Then, consider this schedule (video elements in italics):

  • Intro Video
  • Worship: Sing Wherever I Go
  • Red Light/Green Light (Activity 2)
  • Teaching Video with Pastor Dave

WEEKEND KIDS

Weekend Kids teaches the Sunday sermon topic for kids at their age level! We produce a preschool and elementary option each week. Each video should be about 25 minutes and cover the same topic as the Sunday service will cover. It includes worship. We encourage parents to consider starting the Sunday service with their kids, during singing, and then setting aside a secondary TV or computer so that their kids can watch Weekend Kids during the sermon.

BIBLE TIME

Our highest value is Bible reading, and to help make that a habit, Pastor Dave will read from the Bible every weekday. These Bible Time readings stay in line with Woodlands in the Word.

In each Bible Time video, we’ll do three things:

  1. Work to memorize the weekly verse (from the Sunday sermon, and key to @HOME).
  2. Read the New Testament chapter from Woodlands in the Word (with a little commentary from Pastor Dave!)
  3. And we’ll pray, in line with what we learned.

Make it a habit to get your family into the Bible. If it’s not using the videos – no worries! But read from God’s Word each day.
