Our Childcare Coordinator, Sherri Varsho, is one of the most loving and warm persons you will ever have the privilege to meet! She provides outstanding care to any and all young children needing it before and during worship on Sundays.
Pastor Paul or our YFM Director invite children and youth at worship to join him/her at the front of the worship center for a short message that relates to the theme or topic of the sermon that Sunday. This engages our children and youth in thought about the same faith questions we wrestle with as adults, and sparks intergenerational conversation.
Each Sunday after the opening worship songs and Time for Children, children and youth are welcome to join Sunday Circles (our Sunday School programming) which takes place during worship in the Kids’ Space. This is a time for our youngsters to learn the amazing stories contained in the Bible, and to reflect on what these messages mean for their own lives through crafts, games, and other activities.
The new Wednesday night Youth Group, “Rocket Fire,” which meets every other Wednesday from 6:30 to 8pm, welcomes youth in Middle School and High School. This is a great opportunity for older children in Chain of Lakes and the community to grow in faith, as well as impact the community through service projects.
Juniors and seniors in high school are encouraged to participate in the Chain of Lakes confirmation program, which leads them on an exploration of their faith, and connects them to mentors along their journey.
Each summer, Chain of Lakes Church hosts an exciting and stimulating day camp where children learn what it means to be a follower of Christ…and have a lot of fun at the same time!
Each April, we similarly host an outdoor Easter egg hunt that includes crafts, games, and pictures with the Easter Bunny.
