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.

virtual vbs:  FOCUS 2020

Even though we can't be together this year, we wanted to provide a way for you to have your own VBS @ HOME.  Choose a week you'd like to FOCUS on.  Invite a few friends to your backyard.  Set a time to gather each day.  This can be as simple as watching the worship and teaching videos & talking about what you're learning around the dinner table, or as involved as all the VBS fort-building, craft-making, shirt-tie-dying you can think of!  Bring a picnic lunch, plan a simple craft or just turn on the sprinkler when you're done.  If you've got older kids, enlist them to be your VBS crew-leaders!  The buttons to the right of each day's videos are loaded with additional resources for you to extend learning and engage kids in conversation each day.  

Send a photo of your VBS in action to kerif@wachurch.us, or tag @woodinville.alliance.church on instagram or Woodinville Alliance on facebook.

SUNDAY MORNINGS

*For the time being, children and youth are IN SERVICE with families. 
Register HERE for the service your family plans to attend.

The info below applies when we are able to begin opening classrooms again safely.

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!

A small snack will be provided to the kids during their time in the classroom. If your child has food sensitivities, please make sure to notify the welcome team so it can be noted on your child’s name tag.
*We do advise parents of children with food sensitivities to provide an appropriate snack for their child.

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 and 1 upstairs.  Please print your child’s
name tags and remember to hold on to the security tag for pick up.
Beginning at 9:45, teachers should be in the classrooms, ready to welcome your child.

At approximately 10:05, Kindergarten-5th grade classes will walk to the worship center together,  joining the adults for corporate worship.  After worship, they will return to their classrooms for the bible lesson, discussion, activities and game time!

The following age groups will spend the entire service in their classroom and/or designated play space:
  • Nursery– 3’s (main, west hallway across from Welcome Center)
  • 4/5’s (southwest preschool wing)

LATE ARRIVALS:
Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to us!  To help reduce chaos for our teachers, we limit check in to the classroom itself and ask that PARENTS check in their kids instead of sending them off to the room alone.

If you have a 1st-5th grader and arrive during their transition to the worship center OR during worship time, please keep your child WITH you during worship until the kids are dismissed to their classes.  At that time, you can escort your child to the appropriate classroom for check in.
