WELCOME TO
WOODLANDS KIDS ONLINE!

Drop-In Childcare

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 5-8pm and on Wednesday mornings from 8:30-11:30am. Our nurseries will be staffed by trained and vetted workers ready to care for your kids.

Who: Drop-in Childcare is availble 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 availble, but our staff will not be able to actively entertain older kids.

Kids ages 5+ will be asked to wear a mask in compliance with the statewide mandate.

Where: We are utilizing our new nursies, situated just off our beautiful new foyer and by our coffee bar! We are asking, at this point, that all parents stay in the building. So drop off your kids and grab a couch or table to work, meet, or study.

When: At this point, childcare is available Mondays, from 5-8pm and Wednesday mornings from 8:30-11:30am. 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 – 8:30-10am, not 9-10:15am).

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, 9am-4pm). 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 reoccuring space, but we’ll ask you to pay to cover all the spaces you’ve reserved.

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

We know this is a challenging time for every family to make decisions regarding the health and wellbeing of themselves and those around them. As we gather in our new worship center for regular Sunday services, we have opened 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 every 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 signage to the “Family Check-in Entrance.”

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

Safety Procedures

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 the 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, for the safety of others.

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

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

Joyful Journey BIBLE TIME

One of our highest values is Bible reading, and to help make that a habit, Pastor Dave will read from the Bible every weekday as we go through the Joyful Journey Bible Reading!

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

  1. Read the New Testament chapter from Woodlands in the Word (with a little commentary from Pastor Dave!)
  2. And we’ll pray, in line with what we learned.

Make it a habit to get your family into the Bible!

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
  • Teaching Explanation

  • Worship: Like You Love Me
  • Old Testament Story with Jeannie Swanstrom
  • Small Group Discussion (including Reckless Love Music)
  • Finish with Walk by Faith, prayer, Woodlands in the Word and any additional activities!

Whew! That’s a lot. Have a great week!

WEEKEND KIDS Online

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.
