Lakewood UMC Children's Ministry

Children's Ministry at LUMC provides many fun and exciting opportunities for our youngest members to grow in God's love. Some of our annual celebrations include Spring Fling, Vacation Bible School, and the Children's Christmas Service. During the summer, a wide array a summer day camps provide relief from heat and boredom. At LUMC, our focus is for kids to build a Biblical foundation upon which they can grow a personal relationship with Christ.

CHILDREN'S WORSHIP, Children's Church - 11:10 am

During our 10:50 Traditional & New Song worship services, we offer Children's Church, a children's worship service for children 4 years of age through 3rd grade. Ages 4 through 1st grade, will receive an introduction to worship with songs, lessons and activities to encourage children to explore God’s Word. Upstairs in the Lookout (E202) is a praise and worship service designed to captivate and inspire 2nd & 3rd graders to grow in faith. Children begin in adult worship with their parents and are escorted from the service by the Children's Church leaders. At the conclusion of the adult worship services, children must be picked up from the Children's Church (in the Ark) or in the Lookout (E202).
