Welcome to our Children's Ministry

The Children’s Ministry of Woodlawn United Methodist Church is a place where faith, imagination, and learning go hand in hand. Through creative, active, age-appropriate, Bible-based learning experiences, children are guided and encouraged to grow and develop their faith.



At Woodlawn UMC, we prioritize the safety and spiritual growth of your children. We are excited to offer a safe space that is SafeGatherings certified, providing a secure environment for all our young attendees. Our dedicated team of adults and volunteers have undergone thorough background checks and other training, ensuring your child’s safety while they experience worship, learning, and fun.

Every Sunday, we invite children from Kindergarten to 5th grade to join us for Children’s Church during the Contemporary Service. Please note that the schedule may be subject to change based on holidays and volunteer availability. To kickstart the service, children will begin seated with their parents, participating in the beginning of the worship experience.

Afterward, they will be escorted to Zone 10 of our Children’s Wing, where Children’s Church takes place. Here, they will engage in age-appropriate worship, participate in engaging lessons, and enjoy interactive activities. Meanwhile, our little ones in Pre-K will have their own Sunday School curriculum facilitated by Ms. Janet in the nursery, creating a tailored experience for their developmental needs.

Rest assured, our SafeGatherings certification ensures that your child’s safety is our top priority. Our background-checked adults and volunteers are dedicated to creating a nurturing and secure environment for your children to grow spiritually.

We invite you to bring your children to Woodlawn United Methodist Church, where they can experience a meaningful and enjoyable Children’s Church. Witness their faith blossom as they participate in worship, learn valuable lessons, and connect with other children their age.



At Woodlawn UMC, the safety and well-being of your child is our top priority. We are proud to say that our staff and volunteers are SafeGatherings certified, ensuring a secure environment for your little ones. Our nursery is specifically designed to provide a safe and nurturing Christian space for children aged 0-4.

At Woodlawn, we believe in going the extra mile to ensure the safety of your child. That’s why our nursery is staffed with caring adults and youth who have undergone comprehensive training and thorough background checks. You can rest assured that your child is in the hands of trustworthy and responsible individuals who are committed to creating a positive experience.

Our nursery services are available during all worship services and when adult classes are offered. Nursery hours on Sundays are from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. We request that parents remain on-site while their child is in the nursery, allowing for quick and easy communication and peace of mind.

Join us at Woodlawn United Methodist Church, where your child’s safety and spiritual growth are of utmost importance. We look forward to welcoming your little one into our loving and secure nursery environment.

Camp Horizon
Camp Horizon

Each summer, youth from Woodlawn UMC attend camp at Camp Horizon outside of Ark City. It is an amazing opportunity to gather with youth from other churches for a week of incredible games, community building and Bible study. Most of our youth will tell you that this is their special place – that place where they go to connect with God as they experience the beauty of creation and encounter God in one another.
