Woodlawn baptist children's ministry

Welcome to Woodlawn Children! We believe that children are a blessing from the Lord (Psalm 127:3). Our desire is to lead our children, that the living Lord Jesus has entrusted to us, in a way that is pleasing to Him. We strive to help kids CONNECT with God, GROW in their faith, SERVE Him and GO into the world with the Gospel of Christ. We also seek to equip parents to be the primary disciplers of their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). Take a look below and see how each of our ministries helps us fulfill this purpose.

Every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. we have Bible study groups for children of all ages. The Bible is essential for instructing our children about salvation and in equipping them to serve the Lord (II Timothy 3:14-17). We are currently using Bible Studies For Life curriculum

Bible Study Teachers: 

Babies - Vicki Aime, Cassie Bozeman, Andrea Parsons, Julie Walker

1s - Ruth Payne and Kathy Powell

2s and 3s - Rhonda Johnson and Laura Krone

4s and K5 - David and Kirstie Stokes

1 and 2 Grades - Billy and Janell Tynes

5 and 6 Grades - Zach and Dana Truitt

Extended Session & Children's Church

During our 10:15 Sunday morning worship gathering, we have several options for young families. Children are always welcome to remain with their parents in the worship gathering. 

Our church nursery is staffed with trained workers for babies and toddlers. 

We have Extended Session (ES) for two and three year olds. We have a rotation of volunteers that staff this area of ministry. 

Pre-kindergarteners, kindergarteners, and first graders are provided the opportunity to attend Children's Church. Children will participate in the corporate worship gathering with their parents. Then before the sermon begins, children will meet our Children's Church teachers at the entrance to our Education Building and be escorted to the Assembly Room. Children have a time of singing worship songs, offering, and a Bible lesson from The Gospel Project curriculum. During their three years in Children's Church, children will be taught the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.

Children's BIBLE DRILL

On Wednesday evenings from October through April at 5:00 pm, fourth, fifth, and sixth graders are welcome to join us in the Assembly Room for Children's Bible Drill taught by Janet Earlywine. 

Drillers spend time each week memorizing books of the Bible, key passages, and memory verses as well as the plan of salvation.

Our drillers compete each spring in Church Drill, District Drill, and State Drill.


The purpose of Awana is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ and train them to serve Him. During club each week, children learn through a teaching time, memorize God's Word during their Awana handbook time, and enjoy a high energy game time.     

Our Awana clubs meet from 6:15pm-8:15pm on Wednesday evenings during the school year. 

We have clubs for children ages 2 (by September 30) through 6th grade:

Puggles - 2 years old (parents must remain on church campus - ends at 7:00pm)

Cubbies - 3 and 4 years old (parents must remain on church campus - ends at 7:45pm)

Sparks - Kindergarten through 2nd grade

T&T Girls - 3rd through 6th grades girls

T&T Boys - 3rd through 6th grades boys

If you have any questions, please feel free to email lyn@wbcbr.org. 

Awana is open for registration each Wednesday evening at 6:15pm. Join us in our Family Life Center!
