What's Happening in Children's Ministry?

Babies 0-1: Come play in our Care Center!

2's and 3's: Join us in the Ark Room as we play together and learn about Elijah.

Preschool/Kindergarten: We will follow up the Christmas story by continuing to learn about Jesus as he grows up, and how he is with us today. Join us for stories, crafts, snacks and play!

1st - 5th grade: We are continuing to study the book of Acts. Paul had been converted and joins the disciples in doing the work of the Kingdom. We are memorizing Acts 17:24-28. Also, it's not too late to join in the family Acts reading challenge for the year!

6th-8th grade: We are also continuing our study of the book of Acts. We will have fun acting out some of the Bible stories with skits for the younger grades and also spend time diving deeper into the stories ourselves. 


If you are interested in volunteering with the Children's Ministry, we would love to have you! Please let Heather Swier know! Specific needs: Elementary and Preschool helpers, Ark Room helper (2-3 year olds), and Substitutes for any of the classes.

Get Involved

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 and we can set up a time for you to "job shadow" an experienced person in that role to see if you would be a good fit.
