Hello parents, grandparents and others who are interested in our Children’s Ministry! I hope that you find the information provided on our website to be helpful…whether you’re looking for fun activities for your children or looking or a church home for your family.
Woodland is a small church with a big heart for our community! We offer weekly programs during the school year to teach children that Jesus loves them, and we also offer seasonal activities to celebrate holidays and events like back to school.
I have been a member at Woodland since 2005, serving the Children’s Ministry as a Sunday School teacher, VBS teacher, nursery worker, soccer coach, and more! My two children (now teenagers!) grew up at Woodland.
I’ve known since early adulthood that I was called to work with children. In 2016, God called me to step into a bigger role in Children’s Ministry at Woodland as I accepted this role as Children’s Ministry leader.
My personal ministry is based on two verses from the new testament that are guidance from Jesus.
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep…” John 21:16b
I want to ensure that we carry out His mission as we focus on the families at Woodland. Our programs provide love, care, and opportunities for spiritual growth to all children. This includes caring for children in order that their families may have opportunities for spiritual growth as well.
“Rejoice with me, I have found my lost sheep.” Luke 15:6b
Jesus also commanded us to find the lost. Many of our children’s programs are geared towards families in our communities who are looking for activities for their children. We provide activities that our Church family enjoys while also inviting others to join us.
If you need any more information on our programs, or have suggestions for new programs that our community needs and our church may be able to provide, please drop me an email.
