CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES

Providing a loving, nurturing, and safe environment.


OVERVIEW

The Children’s Ministry programs at Long Beach Alliance Church exist to provide a loving, nurturing, and safe environment in which to teach our children the importance of a personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ. God’s word is out sole authority and the primary focus of teaching. People are the focus of God’s plan to glorify Himself. Every individual is to be welcomed, nurtured, and included in our ministry. To put it simply, we want everyone to feel as though they belong here, because they do.

Every Sunday morning, at 9:30AM, our children are invited to join fun, interactive, and biblically-based class-time, through our Gospel Project curriculum.  Then at 11:15AM, our Fun ‘n Funky hour gives our kids a chance to play and fellowship together, while parents are in their Foundations classes. We love helping kids learn to enjoy and serve God!

We’re thrilled about this innovative Bible study resource that shows how Christ fits into the entire gospel story, from pre-creation to eternity (and where each one of us fits into it too).  The three-year chronological timeline ensures that no matter when you jump in, you won’t miss a thing. The Gospel Project for Kids is a Christ-centered Bible study resource that follows a chronological timeline of Bible events—presenting the story of redemption through Jesus like kids have never seen it before! Each week, these stories come to life through video, music, activities, and more. The Gospel Project is offered at 9:30AM, during the Worship Celebration Service. Kids preschool to 5th grade are welcome!

Fun n Funky hour gives our young ones a chance to participate in fun-filled games and activities, while parents and Jr High/High School students attend Foundations classes at 11:15AM.

Nursery is available for children from birth through 2 years old. When your child is in our care, they will be part of a loving environment filled with cuddles, prayer and lots of love. Safety and personal attention are our top priorities. Please make sure to bring and label diapers, bottles and pacifiers. If your child is potty training, please be sure to communicate that to the teacher and bring an extra change of clothes.

***Please make sure to notify us if your child has allergies or special dietary needs and cannot eat the snacks offered.

If you are a first-time visitor, you can save time on your first visit to church by pre-registering your children at Kidcheck.

At Long Beach Alliance Church we practice baby dedication, as opposed to infant baptism. This is a time when parents make a commitment before the Lord to raise their child according to God’s Word and in a way that points them to Jesus and encourages them to make a personal decision to follow Jesus once they are able. We believe that baptism comes later in life after making a personal commitment to follow Jesus.

Our commitment to baby dedications is based on this passage found in Deuteronomy 6:4-7:

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Baby dedications take place during the Sunday morning worship service. Dedicating a child before the whole congregation also allows our church family to make a commitment to that child and their family to come along side and support the family’s commitment.

Please fill out a form and someone on our ministry team will contact you with more details and be able to answer any questions you may have.

BABY DEDICATION FORM

For the protection of all our children and teachers, we ask that all children and teachers refrain from coming to nursery or class if they exhibit any of the following symptoms:

  • Cloudy or green runny nose
  • Fever of 100 degrees of higher in the last 24 hours
  • Vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours
  • Any symptoms of childhood diseases such as scarlet fever, measles, mumps, chicken pox, or whooping cough
  • Common cold – from onset through one week
  • Sore throat
  • Persistent cough
  • Any unexplained rash or skin infection
  • Untreated pink eye or other eye infections
  • Lice, including the presence of eggs or nits

If a child appears to be ill, we will notify the parent immediately.
