Advent Flier 2017 for website


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 studying the stories being shared in worship. Parents are encouraged to volunteer on a regular basis to teach or help in the Sunday school classrooms. Please see the Sunday school superintendents to sign up. This is an important time for your children to see you sharing the ftories of our faith. Uncomfortable teaching or just aren't ready there are other ways to help with shepherding a group. We'll help you findd the right fit to be a part of your child's faith journey.

Update: Clean Water For All God's Children This summer we studied stories in the Bible that showed how God uses life giving water for sustaining creation, healing and baptism. We learned how important clean water is for our health by growing bacteria from our hands and water sources in petri dishes, looking at the germs left on our hands after washing them through ulteraviolet lights and seeing the challenges for 40% of the world's children who only have access to unclean water. We created water filters and tried to purify water and learned about our partner church in Cuba's water filtration system that provides water for their community. The children's weekly offering was placed in a water bottle and by the end of the summer we were able to purchase five water filters for Santi Spiritus our partner church in Cuba. The children gave the water filters to the Paster of Santi Spiritus when she visited our church in September.

• Advent Wreath Festival will be held in conjuction with the PWOW Bazaar on Saturday, November 18 at 9:00 a.m. Join us downstairs to make advent ornaments, have your photo taken in the nativity, and watch a puppet show. Lots of hands on activities for children at no charge. Families can also make an advent wreath with a supply fee of $15. If you are interected in helping with the Advent Festival contact Holly Albrecht.

• Save the Date for Vacation Bible School, July 9 through 13, 2018. If you thought lasdt year's Vacation Bible School was fun....just wait until this summer. Details coming soon!

• The Woods Music and Arts Camp unites the various creative and performing arts to provide an enriching week that is educational, stimulating, and fun for children of all levels of ability. Music, Art, Dance, and Drama combined with Christian Education, Recreation, and Worship makes an unforgettable experience.
