“And He took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when He had taken him in His arms, He said unto them, ‘Whosever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but Him that sent me.’” Mark 9:36-37
The Children’s Department at Woodland Hills Baptist Church strives to reach out to all children in the name of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to provide a positive, Christ-like atmosphere in which children are capable of hearing the Gospel and growing in the likeness of Christ. We encourage each child to learn the truths of the Bible through the various programs that take place on a weekly basis.
Children’s Sunday school classes are offered for children of all ages. It’s never too early to introduce children to the love of God. We want to provide our children with a safe, Christian environment to learn, to feel loved, and to experience biblical truths. Our teachers are positive, adult role models and enjoy seeing your children grow in the understanding of God and His wonderful ways! Sunday school meets at 9:15am before our morning worship service.
Woodland Hills has an Awana program that succeeds in teaching scriptural truths to children. Awana is a program designed to instill scripture memorization practices in the minds of children. Our children memorize scripture passages weekly and are required to recite the chosen passages to their leader. Our goal is as stated in the Awana pledge: “I pledge allegiance to the Awana flag, which stands for the Awana clubs, whose goal is to reach boys and girls with the Gospel of Christ, and train them to serve Him!” What a tremendous program designed for children to grow spiritually through the study of God’s Word. The Awana Club meets on Wednesday evenings at 6pm.
