VBS - PowerPoint Slide


At Woods Church we are planting faith and growing disciples.  Woods is a place where children can grow deep roots in the faith and church family. The Families with Children Ministry offers programs and resources to strengthen Christian family life. Programs are for families of all types, ages, and stages.

• Sunday school classes are available for children ages 2 through 5th grade at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. We use SparkHouse curriculum and study the stories being shared in worship. Woods members (aged 18 and older) are encouraged to uphold their baptismal vows by volunteering to teach or help in the Sunday school classrooms. Please see the Sunday school superintendents, Holly Albrecht, or Sarah Dziennik to sign up. This is an important time for the children to see you sharing the stories of our faith. Uncomfortable teaching or just aren't ready? There are other ways to help with shepherding a group. Don't worry!  We'll help you find the right fit to be a part of our children's faith journeys.

Goats for Vietnam: Woods Sunday School is collecting money for Heifer International to help purchase goats for families in Vietnam! Heifer International was started about 70 years ago with the “teach a man to fish” philosophy.  Through purchasing goats with Heifer, families create sustainable goods to sell and trade at markets.  Goat’s milk and cheese supports a family for food, medicine and educating their children.  But the gift doesn’t stop there, Heifer teaches hungry families to feed themselves.  The families in turn give their first female offspring to another family and the sharing of offspring continues. Children through 5th Grade will receive a Heifer International bank in their Sunday School classes and can empty their savings into the "goat tub" each Sunday.  We will have a celebratory picnic at Kinder Farm Park after church on May 6th and hopefully meet some baby goats while we're there!
