At Woodlawn our youth (6th-12th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. We want to help our students grow and learn, so that they are equipped to handle any situation they may face!
We would love to see you and your family visit Woodlawn Youth. We meet each Wednesday from 5:00-7:00pm. This time is designed for students to connect with God through fellowship, worship, and relevant teaching. Check out how a relationship with Jesus gives our lives purpose and meaning. Students will be challenged to see what it means to live like Jesus every day and bring God's hope to their friends! Meet in the Youth/CR Building for Cafe at 5:00pm. Then Worship & Small Groups start at 5:45pm.
Your first visit
Here's what to expect when visiting Woodlawn Youth for the first time:
First, find the area marked for first-time youth. Parents aren't required to accompany their youth to check in, but they are certainly welcome! There we will meet your student, check them into our system, and then one of our volunteers will help them join their group.
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):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
How check-in works
When you arrive: You can check-in at our Connect desk right inside the Cafe door. Simply find your name in the database and click on it to check in.
After Service: After our service is complete, you can return to the Youth Building to pick up your child. Youth that are driving age can leave without a parent.
