"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord."  Psalms 127:3


   Lakeside Baptist Church has a passion for children.  This passion motivates us to provide a secure, loving and learning environment for our children.  It is our desire to see children develop spiritually, socially, physically, mentally and emotionally.  To encourage this development, we provide age appropriate activities and Bible studies regularly on Sundays and Wednesdays with extra activities throughout the year.


The preschool and children's departments are staffed with compassionate teachers and workers who love the Lord and children.  It is their goal to provide a fun and exciting learning environment for our children where the love of Christ is expressed.  Jesus loves children and so do we at Lakeside Baptist Church.


 We believe it is important for children to love God. We teach them to live lives that are pleasing to God and to be empowered by His Spirit.


 We desire for the children to love Jesus, their Savior. The Scriptures lovingly describe how parents would bring their children to Jesus for Him to bless and how Jesus said we must become like little children if we are to enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:3). It is a privilege for us to share with children that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for our sins, rose from the dead and will return for them.


 We also want them to love the Bible. Children learn that the Bible is the Living Word of God, the absolute truth and the standard by which they should live. They also discover that God's Word is fun to read and describes how much God loves them.


We have children's church for nursery up to Kindergarten on Sundays. On Wednesday we offer classes for children in nursery up to 5th grade from 7:00-8:00pm
