Growing in Christian Faith

Growing Kids God’s Way

From newborns to 5th grade, the children at Lakeside are raised up in Christ.

We are constantly stretching and growing seeking ways to share the love of Christ with the little children who mean so much. Every kid is precious and deserves to know that. We have lots of great opportunities to teach them this, and here are a few happening in this spring and summer season! Please let us know if you have any questions, and please don’t hesitate or call or email.

Regular Scheduled Events

 Sunday School

Every Sunday morning 9:30 to 10:30 in the the children wing on the west end of the church – kids come together to spend time asking questions, getting answers, and just enjoying each other’s company.
We aim to teach key Biblical truths and stories by looking at them in multiple creative ways suited to a variety of learning styles.

Our volunteers guide each child while creating a safe and loving environment where everyone can have a great time!
Adults can share their successes and struggles with one another as they explore concepts which can help them more clearly define how they choose to deal with the many stresses of raising kids in our modern society.


Girls Scouts

A great place for kids large and small to make friends and learn more about the world, the scouts span all ages and are constantly active learning new skills, going on camp outs, and having a great time. For more information on scouts see their page and contact the leadership.

And more throughout the year including: 

Trunk or Treat

For kids’ enjoyment, adults decorate the back of their cars for Halloween, load up on candy, and come sit in a parking lot for kids to “trick or treat” from car to car. 

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

VBS offers contextualized Christian content that is Bible-based and relevant for preschool, primary, junior, teen and adult students. It is designed to strengthen and prepare students to learn how God walked with heroes of the Bible, and that God is always with us, too. Add to the adventure with out-of-this-world fun, learning, and timeless Bible stories that inspire kids to give glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine!

Easter Egg Hunt

For Christians, the Easter egg is symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. An egg hunt involves hiding eggs outside for children to run around and find the Saturday before Easter 10 – Noon. 

“Every child is a different kind of flower and all together they make this world a beautiful garden.”
