Children's Ministries

"Let the children of this world come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God." - Mark 10:14

I would like to welcome you and your child to Lakeshore Fellowship.  It is our desire to have a children's ministry that is pleasing to God, unites families, and helps children develop to become fully devoted followers of Jesus.

Please call if there is anything we can do to assist you or if you have any questions regarding our Children's Ministry program.

Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your child(ren).

We are using Kingdom Quest curriculum for our Sunday morning B.A.M. Big Adventure Ministry.

Kids have a great time experiencing Jesus. They experience solid Biblical learning through extraordinary creativity and fun! 

Engaging the whole child—heart, soul, mind and strength
The goal is to experience the love of Jesus in such a way that a child will love God with their whole person:  heart, soul, mind and strength. 

Open the Soul:  Jesus-Centered
A relationship with Jesus is what changes our lives. Jesus-centered discipleship continually invites children into that relationship. Both the Old and New Testaments point to Jesus as our Rescuer.

Teach the Mind:  Learn the Bible
Children use their Bibles with the inductive Bible study technique. Observation questions:  “What does it say?” Interpretation questions:  “What does it mean?”  Application question:  “What does it mean to me?”

Involve the Body:  Live it out!
Every lesson points to application. Children discuss and practice ways to live the presence of Jesus to the world.

The nursery ministry desires to provide a safe, loving environment for children, so that parents can feel comfortable as they attend worship. It is located in the ARK and is open during our 9 and 10:45 am worship services for ages birth - 18 months (Summer Nursery provided at 10 am).

Big Adventure Ministry (B.A.M.) for children 18 months - 36 months meets in our toddler room, while K-4th graders meet in the ARK. We have a paging system in the event you are needed during services. We also have a private room in the nursery for nursing mothers; equipped with speakers in which to hear all that is going on in the Worship Center.
