LVC KIDS this summer:
Summer is a great time to give our regular leaders in children's ministry a much needed break, and to change things up for our kids! Beginning in June, children in K-4th grade will remain in the worship center for part of the service, which will include a children's message. After the children's message, we will dismiss them for multi-age activities for the remainder of the service. Care centers will be staffed for those ages 0-2, as well as the ark room for ages 2-4.

Opportunities to Serve
Lakeshore Vineyard is an "all-play" church meaning we desire a community where everyone benefits because everyone contributes. We believe that's how both churches and individuals thrive and grow. With that in mind, we'd like to ask you to look over the following service opportunities and see if there's one you'd like to try out. If so, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a time for you to "job shadow" an experienced person in that role to see if would be a good fit.
Office Volunteers Needed
We are looking for people who can regularly devote a few or more hours to help in the church office. Tasks include filing, sorting, making copies, writing emails and answering phones. Call 394.5500 or email email@example.com to talk to Kim Nyland about these positions.
