Children’s Ministries

LPC welcomes children of all ages to participate in our Worship service. Prior to the sermon, a few minutes are set aside for a special message to the children from our pastor on the Chancel steps. Children may then return to their parents or they are invited to be accompanied to our Sunday School classroom.
Nursery Care at LPC:  A newly remodeled Nursery is available for infants, toddlers, and preschool ages, and is staffed by loving members of the congregation.

Children’s Sunday School

  Growing in Grace and Gratitude – a curriculum that will help transform the lives of children and those who love them, shaped by Grace and Gratitude. Each lesson shares a bible story that reveals God’s grace for us. Through fun, age-appropriate activities, prayer, and singing, children and their leaders will celebrate the meaning of this grace in their lives as they encounter a living God.

Children’s Ministries & Events

Acolytes
  It is a very special responsibility to bring the light of Christ into the sanctuary for worship at LPC. Acolytes perform the important function of bringing the light of God into the sanctuary at the beginning of the each worship service and then carry the light of God out into the world at the end of each service. Training is provided. If your child is interested in becoming an Acolyte please see Mary Frees or Laura Hoyer.

Chimers
  Children of all ages are invited to ring chimes as they lead the processional into the sanctuary to announce to the congregation that the worship of our Lord is beginning. If your child is interested in becoming a Chimer please see Mary Frees or Laura Hoyer.

Easter Egg Breakfast and Egg Hunt
  At LPC we begin the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection with a shared breakfast for all at 9:00am on Easter Sunday. After breakfast all children are invited to hop on outside and participate in an allergy friendly Easter Egg Hunt.

Parent’s Night Out
  We know what every parents wants and needs around the holidays – a free Parents Night Out! All families are welcome to enjoy an early gift from LPC. On a Friday night in December parents may drop off their children for four hours of fun with crafts, games, and snacks, while you enjoy a little time to yourself. Look for information on our Events page in November to sign up.

Trunk or Treat
  Families and their children are invited to our annual Trunk or Treat in late October. LPC members and friends decorate their vehicles for this fun, family-friendly event – no tricks, just treats! Children are encouraged to dress-up in their Halloween costumes for this free event for the community. Also enjoy free food, face painting, and a bounce house! Look for information on our Events page in October.

Preschools at LPC

Tender Years is a cooperative preschool, which is organized by a group of parents with similar philosophies, who work hand in hand with the teachers to provide their children with a truly unique preschool experience. The preschool is administered and maintained by the parents. This environment gives you the opportunity to really get to know your child’s classmates-their new friends! In addition, you will be given the chance to get to know other Tender Years parents, as you work together to help create a fun, loving and nurturing school environment for your children. A cooperative preschool also allows you to work closely with the teachers, giving you a true appreciation of their patience and respect for children as well as their dedication to the learning process. For more information contact Tender Years at 513.399.7405.

Head Start is a federally funded early childhood program designed to provide comprehensive services to young children and emphasizes parent engagement.
