Rock Solid (5th & 6th)FIRST KIDS
“Rock Solid” is our ministry to preteens in 5th and 6th grade. Based on Matthew 7:24, our prayer is that preteens will leave our ministry like the wise man who built his house upon the rock. When the storms of adolescence blow, we want to see preteens who will be “rock solid” in their faith and commitment to Christ.
Preteens are a unique age group. Too old for the children’s department and not quite ready for the youth group, preteens at The Woodlands First have their own ministry dedicated to ministering to this special group of kids!
Sunday Mornings: At 9:30 am, our 5th-6th graders have small group Bible Studies by grade where they build relationships with loving volunteers and deepen friendships with one another as they experience God’s Word. We utilize Gospel Project’s Middle School material that walks kids’ through the Bible in Chronological order as they learn the major themes of Scripture presented in really fun and engaging ways. At 10:50am, preteens will join their families for the Contemporary worship service in the main building. Preteens will be dismissed from their small group at 10:40 am to meet their parents in the Great Hall before worship begins. Please let our team know if you would like to make alternate arrangements to pick up your child from the Kids’ area.
First time guests (SOUTH CAMPUS): Feel free to take advantage of the guest parking right in front of building D on the west side of our campus, and make your way inside to our Welcome Desk. Our friendly staff will help you check in, answer any questions you may have, and direct you to our Worship Center or to an adult small group classroom.
First time guests (NORTH CAMPUS): Take advantage of the guest parking right in front of the building. You’ll enter our “Hub” greeting area, and a volunteer will be happy to help you find the kids’ ministry department (located on the second floor). Our friendly staff will help you check in, answer any questions you may have, and direct you to our Worship Center or to an adult small group classroom.
Preteens are ready to conquer the world, and here, we give them opportunities to let their young faith soar. Our 5th and 6th graders will have chances to serve on mission trips, act as volunteers, and serve on ministry teams. Also, they will have plenty of fun trips and activities, meaningful Bible Study, and caring leaders who will help them build “rock solid” relationships not only with their peers, but with Jesus as well.

Wednesday Nights (Winter Semester Begins January 10)
Your whole family is invited to be a part of our Wednesday night programming. It begins with Wednesday Night Supper served in the Great Hall (South Campus) or the Hub (North Campus) at 5:30, followed by classes for all ages. Our Kids’ Ministry is offering a Kids’ Choir class winter semester (SOUTH campus only) that will end with a Kids’ Musical Production on May 7. This class is open to kids in 1st-6th grade. For older kids (4th-6th grade) there is also a Bible Study option for kids not in the musical program. At North campus, all elementary kids will be in a Bible Study group winter semester.
Sunday Fundays are a chance for your child to have a monthly, field trip with their leadership and friends while parents get an afternoon away! Each month (September-May) will feature a field trip to a different location. (Separate activities are planned for preschoolers-4th graders) Registration is limited so families are encouraged to register early to secure their child’s spot.
There are a variety of special events for kids throughout the year. From Vacation Bible School to retreats to summer camp, there are lots of ways for your child to get involved. Make sure and check out our Save the Date tab for more information about upcoming events, or email email@example.com to be added to our weekly e-newsletter so that you have information on all our happenings!
