Children

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

Woodridge recognizes parents as the primary disciplers of their children. While we offer and value weekly Sunday school programming, it is not meant to replace God’s plan for family discipleship. Rather, it is intended to be an extension of those efforts. Woodridge desires to come alongside parents and equip them to live out the Biblical patterns of discipleship as laid out in Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Psalm 78, Ephesians 6:1-4 and the Great Commission.

Sunday School

Woodridge offers Christ-centered children’s programming on Sunday morning for children up to 5th grade. Your first stop is the children’s check-in table where we’ll help you register your kids and show you where they’ll be going to class. While infants to 2-year-olds will check in and go to class directly, children 4 years old and older will check in, join their parents in service for worship in song, and be dismissed before the sermon to meet their teachers in the commons. Of course, children of any age are welcome and encouraged to join you in corporate worship if you’d like them to.  After the service is over, parents pickup their children from the class by presenting their security sticker.

Classes
Our Sunday school classes provide fun, Christ-centered, age-appropriate Bible teaching, along with prayer, crafts, and worship through song.  We encourage regular communication with your child’s teacher as we work together to see children come to know Christ and grow in Him.

Little Lambs: The Little Lambs Nursery cares for children in infancy to 2 years of age. The nursery is available during both services—starting at 8:45am for first service and 10:15am for second. Children must be 2.5 years old and mature enough to listen to a 5-minute lesson before graduating to Little Splashers.
Little Splashers: Class is offered during first and second service (9:00am and 10:30am) for children 2.5 to 3 years old.
Little Disciples: Class is offered during first and second service (9:00am and 10:30am) for children 4 to 5 years old.
Ambassadors: Class is offered during first and second service (9:00am and 10:30am) for children in grades 1-3.
Bereans: Class is offered during second service (10:30am) for children in grades 4-5.

Safety
To ensure the safety of your children, those serving in Children’s Ministry have completed a thorough application, submitted to a criminal background/reference check, and have been asked to serve by a member of the Woodridge leadership team. We also require that there be a minimum of two unrelated adults supervising children at all times. Anyone convicted of child abuse or a related offense may not serve in Woodridge’s Children’s Ministry. Parents and children will always receive printed security tags for safe and secure pickup.
