encouraging children to be life-long followers of jesus
Lake Samm Kids is committed to teaming with families to nurture the spiritual development of children in an environment that’s safe, fun and creative.
Lake Samm Kids, our ministry to children from birth to 6th grade, is committed to helping kids know Christ and make him known at home, in their community and beyond. On Sunday mornings, kids meet in classes designed specifically for their age group. Our Nursery is quiet and peaceful – the Kids Chapel is loud and a bit crazy – our toddler and preschool classes are somewhere in between. In every group, we have loving, teams of people who have been background checked for safety and trained to work with their specific group of children.
What to Expect
First Time Guests
Tell us you’re new so we can help. When you enter the building, ask for the kids chapel. Check-in will be located right outside and we can direct you to the right place from there!
Your child is important to us. On your first visit, we need the following personal information: parent/legal guardian names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for each child. This information is entered into our secure check-in system. You will be given a nametag for your child and a matching “claim check” to give to teachers at pick-up.
Find the program that fits your family
(newborn – 2 years old)
We know how important your child’s safety and comfort is to you. With this in mind, we have created a loving, safe environment for your little one.
All volunteers have gone through an extensive background check prior to joining our team.
We also have a nursing mother’s room and family room available to you at any point during the service for your comfort.
Toddlers & Preschool
(2.5 years old – 3 years old)
We use First Look Curriculum to introduce scripture, entice wonder, provoke discovery and fuel passion in our young ones. Through age-appropriate activities, we build their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know these three basic truths.
- God Made Me
- God Loves Me
- Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever

There is always something fun, crazy and surprising happening in Kids Church for K-6th graders. Our team uses high-energy games, creative activities and illustrations from kids’ everyday lives to help them learn that Jesus wants to be their friend and the Bible is relevant. Using a combination of large group and small group settings, kids are encouraged to develop a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
Club 456 is a discipleship group for 4th, 5th and 6th graders that meets Wednesdays, from 6 – 8:15pm. We focus on God’s Word, developing leadership skills, having fun together, participating in service projects & becoming a community.
