Children & Family Ministry
Our ministry team loves all kids and their parents! It is our desire to create a place for you and your family to be equipped to do life together in a way that is pleasing to Jesus. As you look through the pages of our website, we hope you will get a picture of who we are and what we do, both on Sundays and throughout the week; and discover how you can plug your family into the Lovers Lane Family.
Each Sunday, our kids are given the space to experience God. They will gather with friends, hear the Bible story told by a storyteller, then explore the story through art, prayer, or some other hands-on opportunity designed for the story each week. Following the exploration time, children are asked wondering questions, and are given the opportunity to wonder or to share about what they’ve just heard and experienced. Then the kids are “blessed” by the teacher who reminds them how special they are to God.
PRESCHOOL (2 years- Kindergarten)
2 year olds stay with their teacher, and do not travel to the chapel or to the stations. Their morning routine still includes play, story, and craft. This is a beloved experience, and a highly anticipated milestone for our nursery children to reach.
