Woods Kids

(Birth – grade 4)

Woods Kids was created with your children in mind. We’re passionate about seeing your kids grow in their faith through relationships, worship, exceptional teaching and tons of fun! Our environments all seek to communicate the powerful truths of the Bible in age-appropriate ways your kids will love. They won’t want to miss a minute or a moment at Woods Kids as they develop a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Woods on Sundays

Sunday is the best day of the week at Woods Kids! Each Sunday during services we offer free kid’s programming for ages birth–grade 4. Kids will experience energetic music, wacky games, compelling teaching, and opportunities to create friendships and memories that will last for years.

We provide safe and clean environments along with background-checked volunteers. You can enjoy our various worship services knowing your kids are having fun while hearing the timeless truths of the Bible in ways they can understand.

Camp Woods Kids

Camp Woods Kids is a day camp style summer event for students 3 years old —grade 4. Camp will be offered June 12-15 at our Eden Prairie and Edina campuses from 9 a.m.-noon. This year is going to be stellar as we launch into faith-building fun that’s out of this world! You can expect a week full of awesome activities, memorable music, snacks, crafts and cosmic quests that help kids shine Jesus’ light to the world.


Students will start and end their day in grade based “crews” that are designed to foster friendships – new and old! From there they will then move around campus for 6 different rotations:

  • Morning Rally – A high-energy, all ages, gathering with awesome music, silly skits, and memorable teaching.
  • Games – team-building activities (brilliantly disguised as wildly fun games) in which your child’s abilities will shine.
  • Art – new projects every day that go beyond coloring sheets to next level S.T.E.M. projects to stretch our minds and creativity!
  • Bible – where stories break out of the traditional mold (fill-in-the-blank puzzles or word searches) to create interactive, memorable, and life-changing experiences.
  • Snack – a time of filling our bellies and filling our minds with “others-focused” service ideas to empower change in our community and around the world.
  • Closing Rally – Even more music, skits, and a fun take element for the day!

All activities are included in the registration fee, plus, students will receive an awesome glow in the dark t-shirt to wear every day!

It’s our goal that Camp Woods Kids is your child’s favorite part of the summer! With over 30 years of camp history, we love bringing our best to serve you and your family!

Woods on Wednesdays (W.O.W.)

Woods on Wednesdays (W.O.W.) helps children grow spiritually and build friendships as they explore their faith through great stories, fun activities, games and music. Kids 4 years old to grade 4 will have a blast as they learn God’s Word during these high-energy weekly events.

Along with activities for kids, W.O.W. also gives families opportunities to connect through family nights and provides tools to create discipleship moments at home.

Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m.  |  Eden Prairie & Edina campuses  |   September 13 – May 15

Sounds of Praise

The Sounds of Praise children’s choir is designed for students in kindergarten through grade 6. Choir is a place where kids learn to treasure God’s Word and lead others in worship. It’s also a great way for kids to grow in their relationship with God, develop friendships and have fun!

Sounds of Praise practices on Wednesday evenings before student programming (from 5:45-6:30 p.m.) at the Eden Prairie and Edina campus. Practice runs September 14 through May 3. The choir also leads worship every few weeks on Sunday mornings for the Wooddale community.
