We love kids! And we want the time that children spend at First Woodway to be the best hours of their week, while building a firm foundation on the truth and love of Jesus Christ.

What’s Happening Now!

SUNDAY MORNINGS + PARENT HANDBOOK 
We are working hard to minimize the risk of spreading COVID, while ensuring that every child feels loved, encounters God, and has a blast at church. Please read over the Parent Handbook before you come on Sunday mornings. In it, you will find all the new protocols, schedule, and information you need. Click here for the Parent Handbook.

Family Movie Night: UglyDolls (rated PG) | March 26 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm |The Venue
All families are invited!
UglyDolls encourages kids (and maybe even their parents) to stop worrying about everyone else’s “perfect” standards. Instead, they will be reminded to focus on being the most loving, compassionate, and kind versions of themselves that they can be. No matter how perfect someone might seem on the outside, it is the character a person has on the inside that really counts. Through this movie and the discussion questions we will provide, families will remember that it is our differences that make us shine and our flaws that make us who we are. Afterall, God made us all in His image and He makes no mistakes.

Bring a picnic blanket and dinner to enjoy with your family. We will provide drinks, dessert, and some fun snacks. Let us know you are coming HERE.

SUNDAY SCHOOL MATERIALS DURING SOCIAL DISTANCING

March 4, 2021

Good Morning, Parents.

I pray you have had a wonderful week and have truly enjoyed the many blessings of the Lord.

Attached, you will find material that goes along with this week’s Sunday School lesson as well as with the Sermon that Dr. Sands will bring. I hope you find them helpful.

For those of you who will continue to worship with us at home, please read the application verse and text with your children. Following that, feel free to use the attached materials to reinforce the lesson.

If you will be joining us in person this week, you can use the attached lesson material to either pre-teach or for follow up!

**Reminder** I have included two Sermon Notes Pages this week. One is geared more toward younger children and the other more toward pre-teen students and youth. I hope your children find these helpful as they listen to, and participate in, worship.

Also attached is this quarter’s Scope & Sequence so you know where we are headed this spring quarter. Our theme in March is “Humility,” April is “Service,” and May is “The Gospel.” We look forward to unpacking these with your children.

We had almost 200 kids in Sunday School last week. That is about half of what we had pre-covid, but more than we have had post-covid. I am excited that so many are returning!! As always, we continue to work hard to make our rooms clean and safe for everyone.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

Blessings!

Barbra Smith | Children’s Minister | First Woodway Baptist Church | www.firstwoodway.org/kids

NEW BELIEVER’S 101 CLASS

The Kingdom Kids New Believer’s 101 Class is a pre-requisite for grade school children to be baptized at First Woodway. Classes are held in room 1204 from 9:45 am – 10:45 am. We believe that baptism is an outward symbol of an inward decision to follow Christ, so this class is for kids who have already accepted Christ as their Savior and desire to be baptized. In this class, we will discuss salvation, baptism, the Lord’s Supper, Worship, and how children can begin to grow in their Christian walk. Each child will receive a devotion book and workbook. Click here to fill out the baptism form.

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)

Never let your fire go out…When you hope, be joyful. When you suffer, be patient. When you pray, be faithful. Share with God’s people who are in need. Welcome others into your homes. Romans 12:11-13 (NIrV)

First Woodway knows being a mother is one of the toughest yet most important jobs a woman can ever do, and First Woodway has a MOPS group especially designed to help Mothers of Preschoolers! These often sleep-deprived women, with stroller and car carrier appendages, meet regularly every other Wednesday morning (9:00 – 11:30 am) from September to May.

Fees
MOPS International Registration Fee is $32 (paid at time of registration)
MOPPET fees are paid in September and January – $35/one MOPPET or $45/two or more

KIDS’ ROOTED (during Fall and Spring)
Discipleship + Music
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm every Wednesday evening.

ROOTED is based on Colossians 2:6-7: “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” The Kingdom Kids staff has a deep desire for kids to have a deep-rooted faith. Wednesday evenings will be key to growing that faith through discipleship and music.

Fall: Emphasis on Discipleship
We will play games, memorize Scripture, learn Bible skills, and dig deep into the Bible as we guide your students to have a deep-rooted faith.1st-6th grade // 6:00-7:00 pm

Spring: Emphasis on Music
We will spend time learning music and learning how to worship God through it.

Preschool (ages pre-kinder & kindergarten) // 6:00-7:00 pm
Each Wednesday Night Beginning again in the Fall
We will have 30 minutes of music, followed by 30 minutes of discipleship. In Discipleship, the kids will begin to learn about the Bible and will be taught that God made, knows, and leads us. These all lay a great foundation to the Bible and introduces kids to great concepts. During music, the kids will learn fun songs that show the power and greatness of God.

Preschool (age 3) // 6:00-7:00 pm
Each Wednesday Night Beginning again in the Fall
Our 3s this year will stay in the same room the entire night. They will have play time, music time, and Bible story time.

Babies-Twos // 6:00-7:00 pm
For parents who are on campus, either serving or attending a discipleship class, we have childcare available for the littles.

For ages three through sixth grade, the place for music and discipleship is at First Woodway every Wednesday night! We also offer an evening meal, including a kids’ menu, from 5:00-5:45 pm each Wednesday. Cost is $6 per adult, $3 for kids 12 and under, and ages 4 and under eat free. Email ldixon@firstwoodway.org to RSVP.
