Family and Children Ministry

Sunday Mornings

Nursery (birth - age 3)

On most Sundays we offer nursery for little ones during the Worship Service, and provide them with a secure place they can feel safe, cared for, and begin to learn how to trust God and others. Children in the nursery are checked-in upon arrival.

LakesideKids (age 4 - 4th grade)

We currently are hosting  minimal  Sunday programming for children over the age of 3 due to social distancing concerns.  When LakesideKids is not in session, kid sit with their parents during services, and  we include elements of the service specifically for them! Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we seek the Lord's wisdom.

Lakeside is sponsoring a Vacation Bible School on Thursdays in August from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Everyone is invited (ages 4-high school)! No sign-ups necessary, just come and join us for stories, games, crafts and snacks!

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).
