Every child can have a personal relationship with Jesus, and in Woodlands Kids, we encourage them to make a decision to follow Him. We advise parents to wait until their child is asking to be water baptized. This is usually a good indication that they are ready to be baptized and that it will be a spiritual milestone in their life. While children under the age of seven can have a relationship with Jesus, they will not necessarily remember or understand the significance of water baptism, so we encourage parents to wait for baptism until they are a little older. If your child is ready to be baptized, their next step is to talk to our Woodlands Kids staff and Growth Track leadership. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
Throughout the New Testament, the Bible teaches that baptism is a public expression of worship symbolizing the new life we have when we follow Jesus. In the Bible we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22–40), and He was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16–17). This ceremony is intended to be a commitment between the parents and God on the behalf of the child. The parents promise to raise their child in the faith until the child is old enough to make his or her own personal confession of Christ. This custom began about 300 years after the Bible was completed and is different from the biblical examples of new believers being baptized to publicly profess their faith in Jesus. With a heart to follow this Biblical model, at Woodlands we provide opportunities for child dedication and believer’s baptism for children over the age of seven. Contact us to schedule your child's dedication!
This area is specially designed for mothers with infants to enjoy the Sunday service in a private environment where you can feed, change, and care for your baby. There is a refrigerator available for pumped milk. When you are attending a Woodlands Sunday service, one of our greeters or Dream Team members can direct you to the Mother’s Room.
partnering with parents
We believe the best way we can help your kids develop a strong spiritual foundation is by partnering with you. Together, we can help encourage, train, and pray for them as they grow in their faith.
Here are some practical ways you can help us make the most of your child’s time spent at church:
Come to the weekend service with your little one as consistently as possible to help your child build a relationship with their Small Group Leader.
Practice the current series Memory Verse with your kids.
Build relationships with other Woodlands parents on the Woodlands Parents Facebook Community Group
Pray for your children each week as they come to church and pray for our team as they serve and care for your kids.
