Children

Family Summer Calendar/Vacation Bible School '21 Update:  We continue to adapt ministry as COVID restrictions fluctuate. Sadly, holding VBS - an event that requires heavy volunteer involvement - doesn’t feel like a wise investment of our time and resources this summer. We have heard from more and more people a strong desire to re-connect with other families…so be on the look out for Family Fun Nights and other opportunities (hikes, park days, etc.) to connect in a simple, family friendly way.  

SUNDAY MORNINGS

Children's programming is now open during the 9am service only.
To help us plan accordingly, please register your children for a spot in an age appropriate class HERE.  
Once we get into a more regular rhythm, we will discontinue the request for registrations!

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 and 1 upstairs.  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 CHALLENGE

Larsen Quarantingo

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!

Looking for ways to connect with your kids spiritually throughout the week?

Wondering how to talk to your kids about anxiety?  The unfamiliarity of our current situation can stir up big feelings for everyone at home.  Check out the Parent Cue website for some simple, age appropriate conversation guides here.

Another great resource available from Parent Cue is their Faith Conversation Guide (broken down by ages/stages), downloadable for free here.


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.
