Sunday Mornings

Your child will love and anticipate Sunday Mornings at First Woodway. Your child is invited to get connected at 9:00 am in a Bible Study class, then stay for 10:15 am kids’ worship, created to be especially relevant to their lives: Preschoolers in “Pre-K Praise,” Kindergarten and First Graders in “Hallelujah House!” and Second-Fourth Graders in “The WORD.”

9:00-10:30 am

Bible Study: Babies – Entering 6th Grade
Sundays will never be the same! We invite your kids to a new and exciting way to experience God. Each week your kids will draw closer to Jesus through hands-on active Bible study with our caring and gifted leaders. This will be a time packed full of fun for your child with praise and worship, great stories from the Bible, creative skits, games and activities, and fun with friends.

10:30-11:30 am

Pre-K Praise: Pre-K
Pre-K Praise meets in Room 116 of the Education Building, on the blue hallway. Kids gather together to experience large group music and worship, Bible teaching through stories and small group activity stations. If your child attends 9:00 am Bible Study, they will be taken directly to Pre-K Praise for the 10:30 hour.

Hallelujah House: Kindergarten – 1st Grade
Hallelujah House meets in Room A-120 of the MAC (gym). Imagine a room JUST for kids… with a barn, farmhouse, silo, country store, post office, and theatre stage… a room full of fun things for kids to do, see, touch & experience! And then imagine phenomenal, fun leaders who bring it all to life through their wacky alter-egos: Rowdy & Red, and SuperChick & SuperDude! Add to it a host of volunteers with a passion for helping children gain wisdom and understanding in foundational Biblical truths… and well, you’ve got Hallelujah House!  With large-group worship and praise that is full of energy and fun songs, skits, videos and puppets that come to life, Hallelujah House is always a favorite time for the kids and is certain to hold great truths!! And with every child as part of a small group, kids are sure to make friends and get a ton of care and love from their small group leader.

The WORD: 2nd Grade – 4th Grade
The WORD meets in Room 1204 on the second floor of the Children’s Building. Every Sunday the kids are challenged to worship God with all of their life! Our desire in the Word is that the kids will learn to love one another like Jesus taught, that they will apply His truths to their lives, and commit to a life of serving Him! During Gravitate Time kids get to hang out in “The Alley” – a cool space where they can catch up with leaders and friends, play games, air hockey, foosball, and even do crafts!  ElevateTime: This is when the kids experience a powerful time of worship, learn about God’s WORD through drama, videos, music, teaching, and other crazy attention-getting methods! Navigate Time: Kids meet in small groups with their leaders, with the focus being to build relationships through discussions, activities and prayer. The Word is a great, safe, fun and inviting ministry for kids of all backgrounds! Whether or not they have been in church since birth or just beginning …this is the place for KIDS!

5th Grade & 6th Grade
5th graders and 6th graders attend worship together with their families during the 10:30 hour.

 The Kingdom Kids New Believers 101 Class is a pre-requisite for grade school children to be baptized at First Woodway. Classes are held in room 1207 from 9:00 am – 10:15 am.

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
