Kids' Ministry

Nursery, Preschool, and Elementary Ministries are offered during both our 9:00 AM and 10:30 PM service hours on Sunday morning.  They are also offered during our 6:30 PM midweek service on Wednesday evening.

Our Vision
We are an up, in, and out ministry focusing on reaching kids for Jesus Christ

Our Mission
Providing opportunities for children to worship God and grow in His Word; equipping parents to disciple their children, and proclaiming the life-changing message of Jesus Christ in our surrounding community.

Our Volunteer Team
Our Kids Ministry Team members LOVE teaching and investing in kids!  They go through training and background checks before they can become a part of our ministry team.  Are you interested in serving?  Contact Jim Elias at jim@woodburnmc.org or by calling the church office at (260) 632-4615.

Curriculum
In September 2018, we began using The Gospel Project curriculum.  You can find more information on this curriculum by visiting their website at www.gospelproject.com.  This curriculum is a Christ-centered curriculum for all ages, moving chronologically through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation over the course of 3 years.

Nursery
A child is never too young to hear the Word of God. In our Nursery Ministry, our goal is to begin laying the foundation to a growing faith.  We strive to provide a safe, nurturing, environment for young children to grow physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.  This ministry is focused on children birth to two years of age.  Our toddlers learn from curriculum that includes Bible stories, Bible verses, and Music.

Preschool
Our Sunday and Wednesday Preschool Ministry provide a creative place for kids to learn about God and His love.  Using biblical lessons, engaging worship time, and fun activities, our goal is to teach kids the Bible stories and Bible concepts while leading them in worshipping their Heavenly Father in both a traditional Sunday School environment and in Preschool Chapel.

Our Little Lights Preschool is a weekday Christian Preschool.  Click on the above Little Lights Preschool link to find out more about the Preschool and to download forms.

Elementary
In our elementary ministry, our goal is to teach each child Kindergarten through 5th grade the Gospel and how to live a Christ-centered life while having fun!  Elementary students experience Biblical teaching, engaging worship, and innovative games and activities in a safe environment with the goal of pointing them towards Christ.
