Especially for Kids & their Families

Working to Connect Young People with Others, the Church and God
Reaching out to our community's young people is an important mission for Lakeside United Methodist Church. Here are some of the events and activities we offer.

Children's Church
A special message for kids of all ages is offered during regular Sunday Worship Services, along with a learning opportunities and take-home gifts and a message to tell someone that “God loves you!”
 
Children’s Sunday School
With the Methodist “Deep Blue” curriculum as a basis, these classes are for children from pre-school age to junior high. Each session provides studies of important parts of the old and new testaments, combined with a variety of learning activities, and even a snack.

Back-to-School Bash
An evening of learning, fun and gifts for youngsters of all ages who live in the Richland-Chambers Lake community. Each child leaves the event with a gift of complete school supplies.
