Children are very important at Woodlake. We strive to have or participate in meaningful activities and programs that teach them basic Biblical principals. Below you will find some of our regular activities for children. We also have a Vacation Bible School each year and proide the opportunity for children to attend Children’s Camp during the summer.
Sunday mornings are great fun for our children. We have a Sunday School class for everyone. Even the little ones in the nursery hear a Bible story and have fun activities to do. Each class is a little different, just like the kids in them. Sunday School begins at 9:45 a.m.
Children in Worship
We encourage parents and children to worship and grow together. We seek to include our children in worship by having a time for them at the beginning of the service. Children are given the opportunity to go to the front of the sanctuary and listen to a short message, just for them.
Following the Children’s sermon, children will receive a special children’s bulletin and a small pouch of crayons. Children are encouraged to participate in the singing then listen to the sermon and write down something they hear or draw a picture of what the pastor is talking about. There are other activities in the bulletin as well. At the end of the service the crayons are returned, and if they like, the children may return the bulletin so the pastor may see their comments and works of art!
Wednesday Children’s Missions Activities
GA’s and RA’s for boys and girls in grades 1-6
At 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, the same time the adults are having Prayer Meeting and Bible Study, our 1-6 graders are learning about missionaries and mission fields all around the world. We have Girls in Action (GAs) for the girls and Royal Ambassadors (RAs) for the boys.
Each month the GAs and RAs learn about a different country, it’s people and how they live. They will learn about a missionary from that country and their family. Each group has different and unique activities that they do as well as mission projects to help others.

Mission Friends for pre-schoolers
Mission Friends is a missions education program for younger children (boys & girls) who are kindergarten age and younger. The primary objective of Mission Friends is to provide a strong foundation for preschoolers in a Christian and missions lifestyle.
Mission Friends provides developmentally appropriate missions learning experiences to help preschoolers move from a self-centered focus to a focus on others, to become aware that not everyone knows about God’s love, and to understand ways they can help others know about this good news!
