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.

MOPS (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

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS

After a VERY long break, Wednesday evenings will begin again on September 1. Watch the newsletter and emails for class information as well as registration links.

Wednesday Nights,

KREW 6:00-7:00 pm

Children have such a beautiful wonder about them as they worship and praise the Lord. They express themselves in pure and priceless ways that give us all an example to consider in our own relationship with the Lord. When you add to that the TLC they receive, the times of fun, fellowship, worship, teaching, and prayer in choir–you have a winning combination! That’s what KREW, Kids Rooted & Engaged in Worship, is all about. Living a life of worship begins with the children.  Help us sow into their lives and raise up the next generation of those who would passionately worship the Lord. This is a great place for your children to experience how awesome it is to praise the living God!

Our KREW, kids choirs, meet on Wednesday night (during the school year) as part of our Wednesday Evening program.

We Use Kidcheck account as our check-in system for KREW. If you have not already, please create a KidCheck account for your family by clicking the link HERE. Contact the Kingdom Kids office for any questions.

KREW is still in need of volunteers. Please contact Danielle Wilson at danielle_wilson05@yahoo.com to know current ways to serve.
