A nursery is available on Sunday mornings to nurture and cared for the youngest in our community. Located on the lower level of the building and led by teams of volunteers, the nursery is a safe place for kids to be care for while families are otherwise engaged in worship or learning experiences.
The nursery is open from 9:00-11:30 am on Sunday mornings.
On Sundays, LW Kids will begin in the Worship Center at 9:00 and 10:30 am. Kids can choose to sit with parents in chairs or at tables with LW staff located on the far-right side of the Worship Center for the first 15 minutes of worship allowing them to participate in the opening songs, prayers, and liturgy. When the sermon begins, LW Kids will move to the LW Kids room for an age-appropriate message, activity, and music. LW Kids return to the Worship Center for communion and the closing songs and prayers. Parents should check-in their kids at registration station in the lobby at the Welcome Desk when they arrive and pick up their kids at the tables when worship concludes.
On Wednesday nights during the school year, LW Kids (kindergarten - 5th grade) have one more activity time and LW Kids Choir option from 6:15 - 7:30 pm. Beginning in the LW Kids room, a learning activity time helps kids remember the weekly theme through games, experiments, and service projects, followed by a 30-minute choir rehearsal. The LW Kids room will remain open and supervised until 8:30 pm for parents who are participating in the adult Worship Choir.
On Sunday afternoons during the school year, LW Youth Choir will gather from 3:00 - 4:00 pm for choir and 4:00 - 5:15 pm for a weekly LW Youth Group. The LW Youth Choir looks forward to continuing the tradition of singing monthly at the 9:00 am Worship Service and taking a choir tour in the summer. LW Youth Group will include games and activities, followed by Bible based learning, small group conversations, and guitar-led worship. Youth are welcome to participate in either LW Youth Group or LW Youth Choir or both as they feel comfortable. Both group are designed to help kids build community and have a place of belonging.
The Wednesday night Bible study is a time for middle school and high school youth to deepen their faith and community through learning and discussion. The group meets during the school year and some Wednesday nights in the summer.
Middle school group meets at 6:15 - 7:15 pm
