Children's Church

During most worship services, children of all ages are invited to the front of the church to participate in a Children’s Message. Afterwards, pre-kindergarten, (4 years), kindergarten and first-graders are invited to follow the children’s leader to the Children's Building for a child-friendly worship service. The other children may return to sit with their parents. The children should be picked up from the Chapel by their parents to go to breakfast with their families after the 8:30 am service.

Children's Sunday School

Sundays,  9:45 – 10:45 am
Lakewood’s Children Building

Lakewood offers graded classes for children from two-years-old through those attending 6th grade, where our children learn that the Bible is God’s Word to them. They learn of our God through the Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments. They learn that they can talk to God through prayer and that He loves them and wants to have a relationship with them.

All children study the same lesson on the same day with an age-appropriate delivery. Bring your child to the Children’s Building where you will be greeted by a Children’s Ministry volunteer who will help you sign them in and take them to the appropriate classroom. Pick up and sign-out is at the same location.

We offer a fully-staffed nursery for all worship services, Sunday school, Wednesday nights and other special events as needed.

Nursery is for children from six weeks to three-years old. Snacks and juice are provided at each visit, but we will be glad to serve your child a snack that you provide. Please feel free to take a pager with you at check- in so the nursery can reach you should your child need you.
