Here are some practical ways you can help us make the most of your child’s time spent at church:
We believe the best way we can help your kids develop a strong spiritual foundation is by partnering with you. Together, we can help encourage, train, and pray for them as they grow in their faith.
That’s why we are committed to teaching them the word of God in a safe and fun environment. Through practical teaching, genuine connections with other students, and the most fun they have ever had, we believe we can make church not just a place they get to go, but a place they want to be.
Love GodWe love God because God is love and He first loved us.
Love PeopleWe love people because God loves all people.
Do Your BestWhen we do our best then God will take care of everything else!
Have FunWe have fun because God gives us joy!
6 Weeks / 12 Months & 1-2 Years
We keep our Lakeside
Nursery rooms ready with age-appropriate toys that are thoroughly cleaned
between services. We have designated rooms for ages 6 weeks to 12 months, and a
room for 1 to 2-year-olds. We strive to win the confidence of every parent by caring
for babies as if they were our own. During service we play, feed and change the
children in our safe and relaxed classrooms.
3 Years – Kindergarten
Lakeside Preschool classes
serve those from 2-years-old to kindergarten. Our goal is to assist you in
laying down the foundational lessons in the Bible. We introduce the teachings
of the Bible in a way that is understood for this age. We introduce structured
lessons in the form of Worship, Crafts, and Biblical Lessons. We encourage our
kids to grow relationships with their teachers and the other kids in the
Every weekend, your kids
will experience dynamic worship and teaching from the Bible. They will spend a
portion of their time in a Small Group experience to give them the benefit of a
consistent Group Leader and interaction with kids their age. Together, they
learn about the Bible and how to have a relationship with God, memorize
Scripture, and have fun developing friendships with each other.
The joy of Jesus’ birth was shared with the people in the house of God. Joseph and Mary brought Jesus to the temple to be presented to God (Luke 2:21-40). Long before this time, godly parents presented their children to God. And to this day, the practice is still done to ask God’s blessing.For these
reasons, Christian parents are encouraged to dedicate their children to God.
During this Christian Child
Dedication service, a beautiful and solemn promise
is made before God and the Church to care for this child as unto God.
Lakeside, we believe that child dedication is a public vow that you are making
to God before His people that you will raise your child in the faith until the
time that your child is old enough to understand what it means to have a
personal relationship with Jesus and make that decision on their own.

Every child can have a personal relationship with Jesus, and in Lakeside Kids we encourage them to make a decision to follow Him. Our children are encouraged to not just learn about Jesus but learn from Him by walking with Him every day (I Corinthians 12:13).
parents to wait until their child is asking to be water baptized. This is
usually a good indication that they are ready to be baptized and that it will
be a spiritual milestone in their life. While younger children under the age of
seven can have a relationship with Jesus, they will not necessarily remember or
understand the significance of the event. With that we believe in partnering
with parents as we wait for baptism until they are a little older, during that
time walking through the bible with them and specific prayers and discussions
about baptism, Jesus, their faith, and the decision they are wanting to make.
As you are talking to your children about water baptism we would encourage you to use this baptism guide to start your conversation!
