During the 11:00 worship service, children ages 3 (potty-trained) through 2nd grade have the option of staying in worship or attending Children’s Church. Children who wish to attend Children’s Church will leave the sanctuary immediately following children’s time. We have activity bags at each entrance to the sanctuary to occupy those who choose to stay in worship.
SUNDAY SCHOOL | 9:45 am
Preschool through 5th grade
Our Sunday school classes are currently using the “Hands on Bible” curriculum. The Bible gives us lots of examples of how Jesus taught, using everyday objects like coins, fish, and plants to help people remember the truths he shared with them. Hands on Bible does the same thing. Using common everyday “gizmos”, children will understand important Bible truths. Because children will experience what they are learning, it sticks with them and they’ll remember these lessons.
kindergarten & 1st grade
2nd & 3rd grade
4th & 5th grade
Children ages 3 (potty-trained) and up are invited to participate in the children’s choir lead by Cade Baccus. Practices take place on Sundays 12:00 – 12:15 pm in the upper room. The children’s choir periodically performs at our 11:00 am worship service. Children’s choir takes a break for the summer (June through August).
Parents of children in 5th grade or younger must pick up their children from their Sunday school classroom or from Children’s Church. Children will not be allowed to leave the room on their own or with siblings. If you need alternative arrangements for the pick-up of your child, please speak with your child’s Sunday School teacher.
REGISTRATION FOR CHILDREN’S PROGRAMS
All children participating in any children’s programs at LUMC must have a Registration Form on file. This includes Sunday school, children’s church, BLAST, or any other special children’s events. Registration forms are available at the church or you may download one
CHILDREN’S EVENTS AND HAPPENINGS:
THE ROAD TO EASTER
An Experience for Families
Saturday, March 24
10 AM – 3 PM
“The Road to Easter” is an experience designed for families which teaches children about the events leading up to Easter. Children and their families will be able to go from station to station at their own pace, learning and sharing the entire Easter story. Each station represents a different part of Jesus’ story. At the end of the “Road”, refreshments will be made available, with the hope that guests will take the time to visit with others. If the weather is nice, everything will be set up outside. Families are welcome to come and go at any time between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm.
PLEASE NOTE: We will not have Parent’s Night Out in March
Parent’s Night Out is open to children ages 2 to 10. The cost is $10 per child for the night and reservations are required. We will play games, sing songs, eat snacks and do a fun craft before settling down for a “G’ rated movie. Children arriving before 6:30 pm are invited to bring their dinner and eat together.
