We want to partner with parents to help kids discover and follow Jesus for a lifetime.
From babies through to Year 6, we offer a tailored program to help your kids know Jesus better.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
As you walk in there'll usually be a few people to say and offer you a name tag (helps to know who you’re talking too!), then if there's time, you can grab a cuppa. There are no assigned seats or special rows for certain people. Feel free to sit anywhere you like.
We start off with a couple of songs, the MC let’s us know what’s happening for the day - before the Kids are invited to join in our Kids Church program in the rooms next door.
At this point, the service breaks while the kids get settled.
LakeMac Kids Church is a fun, safe, age-appropriate chance for kids to meet Jesus on their level!
Kids learn in creative environments that match their curiosity. Through singing, interactive Bible stories, and hands-on activities, the bible comes alive and kids discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
HOW DOES CHECK-IN WORK?
When checking-in your child on arrival we will ask for their age, any health concerns, and your mobile number so that we can contact you in case you are needed during the service.
We also require that you sign your kid out when you pick them up.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?
The service kicks off at 4PM but lots of people arrive around 3:45 to enjoy a cuppa (from our coffee machine!) find a seat and chat with the others who are there.
WHAT ABOUT SAFETY?
We're glad you asked! Safety is a top priority.
We know we wouldn't leave our kids with just anyone and we don't expect you to either. Every Lake Mac Church Kids leader has completed "Safe Ministry Training" (link to https://safeministrycheck.com.au/) and have undergone a "Working with Children Check" screening process.
However, Kids Church is more than just a physically safe place, it is also an emotional and spiritually safe place. We are a place where kids can ask tough questions and be in a relationship with leaders and other kids who support and care for each other.
HOW LONG DOES IT GO FOR?
Kids Church begins midway through our 4PM gathering and finishes when the main Gathering does.
Afterwards, most folk stick around to share a nice dinner together (free of charge).
