Children’s Ministry

Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’  Matthew 19:14

We love kids at Lighthouse Christian Church!  It is the mission of the Children’s Ministry to allow children to know Christ and to make Him known in a  safe and loving atmosphere.  The first part of our mission is accomplished by providing Bible-based material in all classes.  The second part is met by providing approved and committed teachers and helpers.

Security is a high priority!  Parents check in children at Check-In Stations located in the hallways outside classrooms to receive their child’s name tag, child pick-up receipt and an info label to give the teacher.   In the event you are needed, your child’s number will appear on the visual pager located in each room.  A child is released only to those with a pick-up receipt.  Background screenings are run on ALL adult volunteers working with children.

252 BASICS – Grades 1 thru 5

Sundays 10:30AM Church, Room 12 -

PrintOur Sunday morning children’s program – 252 Basics – is named for the Bible verse found in Luke 2:52, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”  When you see the word “basics” in the title, well, you sort of think foundational, essential, right?  That’s what 252 Basics does—it equips kids from first through fifth grade with these three basic truths:  (1) I need to make the wise choice; (2) I can trust God no matter what; (3) I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
