Please check-in your child in the Children's Building for large group which includes games, worship, and introduces the virtue app of the month with a Bible story. The kids will then go into small groups based on their grade where they will continue to learn about the Bible lesson through games and activities. Please check them out with their small group leader.
4th & 5th Grade - Starting this year we will also have a Preteen group. Please check-in your child in the Children's Building.

They will then have small group time which delves even further into the lesson. Please check them out with their small group leader.
Here's what to expect when visiting Woodlawn Kids for the first time:
First, find the area marked for check-ins. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate area.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
Before Service: You can check-in your child at the kiosk in the Children's Building or at the Nursery. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
For nursery-aged children, you will also receive a pager that will notify you if we need to contact you during the service. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.
