Wednesday Evenings | August 23 – November 15 | 6:30-7:30pm
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 the spring semester. 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 For Kids
This class is a pre-requisite for children in grades 2 through 5 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.
The New Believer’s Class has been restructured and will be held on select Sunday evenings from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Students will meet with Mrs. Barbra from 5:00-6:15 and parents will join the students from 6:15-7:00. We will discuss salvation, baptism, worship, communion, prayer & Bible study, family devotions, and more! We will end with a tour of the baptistry.
So materials can be prepared, the deadline to register for each class is the Tuesday prior to the class. Our classes this fall are September 24 and November 5. You can register your child here.
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 an orientation and the actual dedication here.
