Life Kids

is for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  

On Wednesdays at 7 PM, from September through May, the kids have an entire floor of our Student Ministries Building (420 N Main) to themselves as we purposely invest in their young lives.  Our gifted team of leaders provide live and fun music, creative and colorful puppet skits, live and interactive Bible stories, challenging games, meaningful crafts and tasty snacks in a carefully planned environment where each child is valued and cared for.  We use the Bible as our textbook and lead the children on an interesting adventure through the great stories that teach us all so much about life with God.  In the six years that they can be involved in Life kids, they will hear many of the great stories of the Old Testament, and be introduced to the unconditional love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  Each lesson is carefully planned and engages the kids on a level that they can understand and apply in their lives at home, school and with friends.  They will be encouraged to pray and worship and serve others as an important part of the Church today!

If you are looking for a ministry to help your children or grandchildren discover more about life with God, we encourage you to visit a Wednesday night or contact us with any questions that you may have about this great part of Life Church.    

 

Life kids on Sunday Mornings!

There is also a special time set aside for kids ages 4 through 4th grade on Sunday mornings @ 10:10 AM!  After a time of music with the entire family, the kids can go to their Life Kids areas to begin their learning adventure. This gives the adults some time to focus on the weekend message and also gives the kids an engagning experience right atsimilar to our Wednesday nights, designed just for them!

 

We do provide a NURSERY on Sunday Mornings!

Parents may make use of our staffed nursery for children 3 years and under.  Little ones may be checked into the nursery 15 minutes before the service begins and can only be checked out by the persons designated at check in.  If it is a parent's first time checking in, be prepared to complete a short informational card so that we can best serve your family.  Children should be picked up within 10 minutes of the end of the adult service.  We look forward to serving your little ones and hope that this short break will be a blessing to you!

 

Family Nights! Family Night

A few times each year, the kids invite their parents and families to Family Nights.  This is a fun chance for all ages to come together and enjoy a time of learning - Life kids style.  The theme of our big group games or challenges, music, crafts, skits and message all point to a truth for families from the Bible.  Look for these dates on our calendar page.   

 Lake MitchellPark or Lake days!

In the summer we also host a few dates at one of our city parks or at Lake Mitchell.  The kids will be invited to bring the whole family for a day of laughing and learning together.  These summer outings are a great chance for families to enjoy some outdoor time together!  Watch for dates on our calendar page.




Know Him!

youth worship is for students in both middle school and high school.  They meet from September to May on Wednesday nights @ 7 PM in our Student Ministries Building (map)  The doors open at 6:30 PM!

The teens are not an after-thought at Life Church.  We purposefully invest a great deal of time and resource into these young men and women.  We have dedicated the entire main floor of our building for the teens to use as a refuge to be equipped and encouraged and also as a launching pad for outreach into our community.   Pastor Bill's first "title" within this ministry was youth pastor.  After over 25 years of loving and ministering to teenagers, both within our church family and through our teen center "that place", he still leads this ministry determined to offer real life, challenge and hope to the youth of our community.  We are blessed with a great and gifted team of volunteers, most of whom have been with us for many years.  

Students are encouraged to develop a close relationship with Jesus Christ and discover how He has gifted them to make a positive difference in the world around them.  We want teens to really "know Him and make Him known!"  There are many opportunities for students to serve or give of themselves as they live out the adventure that God has for them.  From student-led bands, audio/video techs, maintenance, service projects, local and foreign missions, funding clean water wells, or leading a small group of younger students there is something for everyone to do as a part of this ministry.  Teens will also be encouraged to find a place to serve in other areas of ministry as a part of Life Church.  You will see them involved in many ways during our weekend times of worship or serving as important parts of projects in our community.
