Children’s Ministry

 

 

 

Lakeside seeks to connect everyone to our Gospel-shaped family on mission, including our children. Our goal is to equip parents to disciple their kids, and to join them in that process. Check out all of the ways you can get your family involved below!

LakesideKids

Sundays During the Worship Service
During our Sunday morning gathering, children age 4 – 3rd grade are invited to participate in LakesideKids where they will play games, do crafts, and learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Child check-in is BEFORE the Sunday morning Worship Service.

About every 6 weeks, we have a Family Worship Sunday where children are not dismissed to LakesideKids. These services have child-friendly elements, such as kids songs and fun stories, to encourage meaningful participation from the whole family. Nursery will still be available on these Sundays.

Nursery

Sundays During the Worship Service
We offer nursery for children ages birth-3 years on Sunday mornings during the Worship Service, and provide them with a secure place they can feel safe and cared for and begin to learn how to trust God and others. Children in the nursery must be checked-in upon arrival.

Family Nights

Once a Month, Wednesdays 6:30-8pm
Our goal for Wednesday night children’s ministry is to equip parents as the primary disciple-makers of their kids. Instead of running a weekly program, we have a monthly Family Night where all of Lakeside’s families can come together for fellowship, encouragement, and fun. See when our family nights are happening below:

  • September 18 – Family Bonfire
  • October 30 – Trunk-or-Treat
  • November 20 – Thanksgiving Activities

Free Family Movie Nights

Once a month, Fridays 6:30pm
We show a family-friendly movie and serve free snacks and drinks. After the movie, we have take-home devotionals available as a way for you to use the themes in the movie to talk about Jesus with your kids. See when our family movie nights are happening below:

  • October 25 – Monsters, Inc.
  • November 12 – Toy Story 4
  • December 20 – Elf

INVEST

Once a Quarter, Wednesdays 6:30-8pm
Once a quarter, we have a Wednesday night parenting class called INVEST that’s focused on how to wisely invest spiritually in our kids. It covers a wide range of parenting topics such as technology, busyness, and how to study the Bible with your kids. Childcare is provided!

Child Safety and Security

Lakeside is committed to providing children with a safe and child-centered environment. We ensure this through our secure children’s area, check-in process, low child to volunteer ratio, and volunteer screening. For your child’s safety and security, please check-in and pick up your children at one of the two registration desks (south foyer or nursery).
