"HEIRS" with Christ Children's ministry supports the vision of LFCC by nurturing godly seed from infancy through sixth grade, teaching them to Love God, Obey His Word, and Live to advance His kingdom on earth. With this mindset, we purpose to lay a solid foundation of God's Word in our children's lives in a FUN and developmentally appropriate manner. We also look to provide opportunities for children to use their God-given talents and gifts to serve in His house.
Services Offered By Your Ministry
We provide ministry to children from infancy through sixth grade, and are open during weekly church services and most of the main church's special events. Apart from regular church services, the children's ministry hosts three special events of its own each year - Resurrection Sunday Celebration, Vacation Bible School and Bible Boot Camp.
Additionally, we offer parenting seminars 1-2 times per year. The elders are available to speak with parents concerning family and parenting issues.
List Areas of Your Ministry Where Members Are Needed
The Registration Team maintains current records of all children who regularly attend services as well as those who visit with us. The team distributes this information to Team Coordinators and Grade Level Team Leaders as necessary.
Grade Level Teams
The children of the ministry have been divided into developmentally appropriate age groups to ensure they are ministered to effectively. Each grade level has a Team Leader and assistant who coordinate the activities of their specific age group. The grade levels are as follows: Babes in Christ (infants – toddlers), Seeds of Faith (toddlers – kindergarteners), “Souled” Out Warriors (grades 1-6).
The purpose for this team is to maintain current forms, record meeting minutes, complete supply requisitions, and coordinate other business activities of the children’s ministry. Its goal is to ensure that all business is conducted “decently and in order”
(I Corinthians 14:40).

The purpose for this team is to ensure the materials we utilize to minister to the children are developmentally appropriate, culturally sensitive, and biblically sound. Additionally, this team works with Grade Level Team Leaders to ensure they have necessary supplies to present lessons.
