Children’s Ministry this Month

Children's Ministry Kick-off! We will be moving everyone up to their new classes starting on Sunday, September 9. We are excited to start a new year with all of you! Please make sure you have registered your kids for their new classes, either at the registration desk or online.

In September we will be focusing on stories from the life of Paul, asking the question: When should we tell others about Jesus? Ask your kids to answer this for you! :) We will also be working together to memorize Philippians 1:20-21.

Parents, check out the Parent Notes on our website, at the bottom of the "Kids" page. Each week there is some information about our topics and our main points. You can follow the link in the weekly email to find the page too! Our teachers also have handouts each week that have some great suggestions for family conversations based on our lessons. We are blessed to partner with you to raise up kids who love Jesus!

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 would be a good fit.
