Woodway KIDS!
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!

Children’s Ministry Blessings!
God has blessed us with so much growth and we are very thankful. Due to this amazing growth, we need more college students and adults to say “yes” to serving in Children’s Ministry on Sunday mornings. Has God called you to love and disciple kids? Has He called you to rock babies? Has He called you to welcome our guests? Has He called you to minister to our Children’s Ministry volunteers? Email Barbra Smith or call/text her at (254) 744-7044 to find out ways that you can help, or complete this short form and Barbra will get back with you!

Wednesday Evenings  |  Jan 24 – Apr 17  |  6:30 – 7:30 pm
Babies through Three-Years-Old
We will have childcare for this age for parents who are in a Discipleship Class on campus that night or who serve.

Pre-K through 5th Grade
We are excited to offer Kids’ Choir for this age group. These kids will be preparing songs to sing in Sunday morning Worship as well as preparing a musical, which will be performed during this spring. Don’t miss this time of learning music and learning how to worship God through it.

1st through 5th Grade
This year, our 1st through 5th graders have a choice on Wednesday evenings. These age groups can join our Kids’ Choir (see above) or they can join Discipleship Classes just for Kids! They will memorize scripture, learn Bible skills, hear Bible stories, and apply Bible Truths to their lives.

You can register for Wednesday Evening ministries here.

New Believer’s 101 Class for Kids  |  Jan 28/Mar 17/Jul 21/Sep 15/Nov 3  |  5:00 – 7:00 pm
This class is a pre-requisite for children to be baptized at First Woodway. As we believe that baptism is an outward symbol of an inward decision to follow Christ, and based on the material covered, this class is for kids who have already accepted Jesus into their lives. In addition to baptism, we will discuss what being a Christian means, worship, how children can begin to grow in their Christian walk, and more. This class is specifically for children in grades 2 – 5, and kids must be at least age seven to be baptized. The class begins at 5:00 pm on select Sunday evenings in Room 116, and parents join at 6:15 pm for the final 45 minutes of class. After class, you will be able to choose your child’s baptism date and service time.

You can reserve your child’s spot for any of our 2024 dates here. The deadline to register for class is the Tuesday prior to the scheduled class.

Family Dedication  |  Feb 11/Apr 7/May 12/Aug 18/Oct 20  |  9:30 – 10:45 am
Family Dedications are faith milestones that we celebrate on select Sunday mornings throughout the year. To participate in a Family Dedication, you must first attend an orientation session. This informational class will focus on what a dedication is, as well as provide you with some excellent tools and resources for leading your child. You can sign up for all 2024 orientations and the actual dedications here.

Serve at VBS  |  Jun 3 – 6  |  9:30 – 11:30 am
Vacation Bible School will be here before we know it! The theme this year is “Start the Party, Celebrate the Good News.” During the week of VBS, we will learn that Jesus is a great reason to have a party. We will celebrate Jesus because He is the Good News and the life of the party, and we will learn that we can be party starters.

The purpose of VBS is four-fold: 1) to clearly present the Gospel of Christ so that children will discover God and come to know, love, and serve Him, 2) to not only invite our FW kids, but to also reach out to their friends who are unchurched and/or do not know Christ, 3) to have fun while learning about Jesus, and 4) to help our volunteers grow in their knowledge and love of God as they share His love with the children. Will you join us on this mission? Let us know that you can help by clicking here.
