Children's Ministry

Purpose

The primary goal of the children’s ministry at LakeRidge Baptist is to make each child feel loved and accepted as they learn about Jesus.  Shaping the lives of children is an awesome responsibility that affords us great opportunity and fulfillment.  This responsibility is one we gladly accept.

We give special attention, instruction, love and care to the precious children God has brought to our church.  We support parents in the challenge of parenting and help provide guidance from the Bible.

Jesus said in Mark 10:14, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God”.

QUARTERLY MINISTRY ACTIVITIES

Our Children’s Ministry Team coordinates events during the year for our families and those they invite to enjoy learning about God on a larger scale.

Fall Festival

Fall is a time when we have a Fall-tastic Family Event where we consume campfire food, paint pumpkins, listen to a devotional, jump on a hayride and roast s’mores.  It’s a great time for the young and the young-at-heart.

"Drive-in Movie

In the winter we hold a “Drive-in Movie” for the entire family.  Popcorn and snacks are served while the kids can lay on blankets and pillows.

Family Easter Celebration

A family Easter event is held in the spring which includes a lite breakfast, activities, the Easter story, and ends with an Easter egg hunt ourside.

Summer Vacation Bible School

During the summer we host a week-long Vacation Bible School.  This is an exciting way for children K through 5th grade from all over town to come and have new experiences while learning more about how God loves people all over the world and in our own city.  Each year’s event is full of energetic activities, songs and praises, and experiencing Bible stories like they never have before!
