Children (Kindergarten – 5th Grade)

The overarching aim of the children’s ministry at Woolsey matches our church’s purpose statement:

“To know Christ and make Him known”.

Vision

Our vision is simple: make disciples by leading children to follow Jesus. This vision means primarily three things:

  1. Children becoming Christians
  2. Children being baptized
  3. Children growing as disciple-making, disciples of Jesus

Mission

The fundamental means of accomplishing this vision lies with the parents. Therefore, the children’s ministry at Woolsey will prioritize assisting parents to make disciples by leading children to follow Jesus.

Coming alongside our parents, the church will strive to equip parents and train children.

Understanding

With that said, we recognize that many reasons prevent or hinder gospel-training from occurring in the home. Some parents are new Christians; some are single parents; some have less than supportive spouses; and some don’t follow Jesus themselves but desire for their kids to learn about Him.

Wherever you are as a parent and family, Woolsey Baptist Church is here to serve you and your children!

Theology

We agree with “Theology of Children’s Ministries and Its Implications” (Written by the Council of Elders, Bethlehem Baptist Church; Minneapolis, Minnesota; 1992, Revised 1999)

Schedule

We work to fulfill our vision through weekly Sunday School Classes  and Wednesday night activities

On Wednesdays, small groups are offered for parents and our children participate in the Awana program during the school year and special Wednesday night activities during the summer.

On Sundays, there are Bible study classes for all ages that we highly encourage both parents and children to be a part of. We also gather for worship on Sundays.

Worship Gatherings

We gather together as a faith family on Sundays at 10:45 am and 6:00 pm for corporate worship. During this time, we sing, pray, hear the Bible read, give and listen to the Bible preached.

Although childcare is provided for preschoolers four years old and younger, we value families worshiping together. Because the church is a family, we believe it should be together rather than fragmented. We encourage you to read this article on reasons, tips and resources for the Family Worshiping Together on Sundays.

Singing Together As A Family: Practical Resources

Talk it Over

Each week we print and upload Talk It Over a family worship guide related to the Sunday morning message with Bible passages to read and discuss, things to discover and pray about, and a song to sing. This resource is a practical tool to use in implementing singing within your family.

Songs of the Week

Every Thursday or Friday, Songs for Sunday are uploaded to our web and will be sung at the upcoming Sunday worship gatehring. With your memory or YouTube, you can sing these songs ahead of time…even if it’s driving to church Sunday morning.

Children's Albums

Two good children’s albums include: Walking with the Wise and Songs that Jesus Said by Keith and Kristen Getty

One of the best starting places, however, is a hymnbook. Talk with Steven or Matt if you’d like to borrow one from the church.
