Our religious studies portion of our curriculum is a collaborative effort between The Woodlands Methodist School and The Woodlands United Methodist Church.
Preschool/Children of The Woodlands
At Children of The Woodlands we integrate our faith into all we do. Classroom teachers are Christian, and answer young children’s questions from a developmentally appropriate Christian perspective. Teachers include Christian Education in their lesson plans, and our children pray every day in their classrooms. Additionally, each student attends Chapel weekly. Our Chapel time is prepared by the The Woodlands UMC Children’s Ministry team, and is always lively, engaging and Biblical. We invite Grandparents and Special Friends to Chapel in the fall, and include families in our Christmas and Easter Chapels.
Lower and Middle School
Our lower grades (Grades K - 5) are currently learning the Bible through a three-year chronological scope and sequence. Beginning with Genesis and ending with the book of Revelation, these lessons are developed through our church's Children’s Ministry. This three-year journey includes character traits where children can identify and define their own spiritual journey related to the stories of the Bible.
Our Grade 6 participates in additional confirmation classes, developed and led by Rev. Chris McLain, The Woodlands UMC confirmation director and co-director of Children’s Ministry.
Our incoming Grade 7, along with our Grade 6, will be developing their own chapel and will be taught the Bible in a collaborative partnership between The Woodlands United Methodist Church Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry.
