Lakeside Kids

Welcome To Lakeside Kids!

We believe in creating an environment that is Safe, Fun, and Impactful! Our heart is to connect your child to the Love, Confidence, and Power of God.

Lakeside Kids offers a place for children from 6 weeks through 5th grade to discover and develop a passion for God. Through worship, prayer, teaching, and activities, children are exposed to God’s Word and challenged to grow in their relationship with God!

Your children will be taught Biblical truths and practical lessons presented through Bible lessons and Small Group discussions. With emphasis on creating connections with their peers and getting practical with the lesson taught, our small groups create friendships that last a lifetime

Your First Visit


From babies to fifth graders, our team wants to give your family an excellent experience.
When you arrive, our team will happily show you the way to the children’s area. You’ll go to kids check-in where you can tell us a little about your family to help us serve you well. On our check-in form we’ll ask things like what allergies your child may have, how many children are in your family, and get your contact information.
Then, you and your child will both get a sticker with a matching code. If for any reason we need to reach you during the service, you’ll see your child’s code on the screen. This sticker is also what you’ll use to pick up your child after the service.

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.

Be Prepared


Here are some practical ways you can help us make the most of your child’s time spent at church:

  • Pick a consistent service time and location to help your kids build a relationship with their leader and other kids their age
  • Practice the current memory verse with your kids
  • Stay connected to Lakeside Kids by following us on Facebook.
  • Pray for your children each week as they come to church, and pray for our teams as they serve and care for your kids.


Our Values


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 God
We love God because God is love and He first loved us.

Love People
We love people because God loves all people.

Do Your Best
When we do our best then God will take care of everything else!

Have Fun
We have fun because God gives us joy!

Nursery

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.

Preschool

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 classroom.

Elementary

1st-5th grade

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.

Dedication


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.

At 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.

Baptism


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).

We advise 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.

Water baptism is an outward demonstration of what Jesus has done for you on the inside. Jesus died for your sins, was buried, and then was raised from the dead! As you are talking to your children about water baptism we would encourage you to use this baptism guide to start your conversation!
