Children

JESUS SAID, "LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME..." 

Our heart is to see every child and family discover who they are in Christ, experience his goodness and learn how to share this life-changing encounter with their world.

BELONG | BELIEVE | BLESS

At Woodinville Alliance, we want children and families to be welcomed into the church body and to encounter the transforming love and grace of Jesus.   This starts with caring classroom leaders committed to building relationships first, demonstrating the way Jesus prioritized and cared for children.  It includes opportunities for your family to build on a foundation of faith as a family unit and to connect with other families looking to grow together.  We want to help all kids grow in their understanding of God's great love by exploring the Bible, worshiping together, practicing habits of faith development and providing support for parents as they lead by example.

SUNDAY MORNINGS

Children's programming is now open during the 9am service only.

FIRST TIME?
Come to the Welcome Center just around the corner from the Porch and our welcome team will take care of you!

Once we get some basic info and create a name tag for your child, one of the welcome team will help you find the right classroom for your child’s age and explain the pick-up procedure.  Don't hesitate to let us know if you have ANY questions!

DO YOU HAVE A CHILD WITH DISABILITIES?
Understanding that every child is unique, we want to partner with you to provide the best care possible. The more information we have ahead of time, the better we can help meet your child’s needs.  If you are considering bringing your child on Sundays, please visit this link: Disabilities Information Form. Fill out anything on the form that you feel pertains to your child and would help give us an initial understanding of their needs.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your kids!



CHECK-IN ON SUNDAY:
We have 2 check-in stations downstairs.  Please print your child’s
name tags and remember to hold on to the security tag for pick up.

Beginning at 8:45, teachers should be in the classrooms, ready to welcome your child.


FAMILY CHALLENGES

 Prayer Walk


There is so much going on in the world that is outside of our control.  We are all bombarded by constant information and news that is too much to take in.  The need is great.  One of the best responses is to model and to teach our kids to be pray-ers.   If you CLICK HERE, you can find directions for a KIDS PRAYER WALK.  They are easy to adapt, to pray from any location...not just while walking around our church.  As you wrap up your prayer times, we would love to collect any written words of prayer or scripture you've prayed and add them to the line of scriptures and prayers in the hallway outside the church offices.  You can email them to kerif@wachurch.us or drop them by the office Monday-Thursday 9-4.

Want to talk to your kids about prayer changing things?  Read & discuss:
James 5:16-18
Ephesians 6:18
Psalm 145:18

Bible stories about prayer changing things:
Exodus 32:11-14 (Moses asks God to have mercy on Israelites)
Joshua 10:12-13 (Joshua prayed for God to intervene in nature)
James 5:16-18 (Elijah prayed about rain)
2 Samuel 24:25 (David prayed to stop the plague)
John 11:41-44 (Jesus prayed to raise Lazarus from the dead)
 

Blessing Others


If we are to look different from the world, to be a place of BLESSING and life, it starts with our families and ripples outward.  How are you in the practice of building each other up?  What kind of words flow the most freely in your home and out the door?

"So encourage each other and build each other up." 1 Thessalonians 5:11

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up.” Ephesians 4:29

Choose one of these verses to MEMORIZE as a family.

Challenge EACH member of the family to speak blessing and encouragement over 3 different people this week.  Even better if it is written and delivered!  

  1. Someone outside of your house who NEEDS  a smile and a word of encouragement.  
  2. Someone who lives IN your house. 
  3. Someone who is more difficult for you to say kind things to (particularly someone with whom you might be at odds--how can you find peace?) 

If you need the name and address of someone in our church family that could use some encouragement, send us an email here and we'll get you the info you need!
