Please join us for our annual Community-Wide Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 20th from 10AM – noon. Lunch (hot dogs, chips, & drinks) will be served. There will be fun activities and crafts for the kids in addition to the egg hunt. Don’t forget your Easter basket!
George Barna said “In the race to a child’s heart, the first one there wins.”
Our preschool department has age-graded classes that start with bed babies and go through kindergarten. During this time, children are taught Bible stories and learn about important Biblical figures. Our teachers use a variety of age-appropriate activities and curriculum.
Our children in grades 1-5 begin class at 9:15 AM on Sunday mornings. They have group worship, and then divide into small groups by age for Bibles stories, crafts, and small group activities.
Kids Quest on Wednesdays is for ages 4 & 5 and grades 1-5. It begins at 6:30 PM on Wednesday evenings.
Our Terrific Tuesdays program and Vacation Bible School are held each summer and field trips and other enrichment activities are frequently scheduled. Super Surprise Sundays and Kids Summer Camp are other popular activities for the children of Locust Grove.
Life Groups for all ages- 9:15 AM Sunday
Children’s Church (4-6)- 10:30 AM service Sunday
Wednesday Fellowship- 6:00 PM (Snacks) and 6:30 PM Class
We are excited to meet new friends! We would be pleased to have your children and your family visit with Locust Grove. Your child(ren) would be greeted and treated as one of our own. It would not take long for your child(ren) to form lasting relationships.
Our Life Groups for children meet in two locations- the rear of the church at the Daycare Center hosts our Life Groups from ages birth- 5 years old. The basement located adjacent to the Rock Chapel houses our Elementary Life Group. From the Fellowship Hall, it is up the stairs and on the right.
During the 10:30 service time, we offer Children’s Church for ages 4-6 in the basement. Children these ages will be dismissed following the song service and offering time. Typically the Deacon of the Week will include this dismissal.
Wednesday evening snacks are offered in the Fellowship Hall at 6pm for families. Class time for children begins at 6:30pm. The class locations for children are the same as Life Group (above).
Sign- in & Sign- out forms at the desk above the basement and in the Pre-school area
Pre-school form indicating any allergies, feeding instructions, etc.
For Pre-school children, register for a beeper in the office in the Daycare area at drop off. Please also return your beeper/pager after church.
The basement door will remain locked until class begins. For Elementary age children, please bring a Bible to both Life Group and Wednesday evening classes. We do ask that no outside toys or distractions be brought into class time, please.
We try to incorporate active play, bible memory verses, crafts, group activities and also the latest curriculum to teach and guide.
Lanyard badges provided for class teachers, nursery workers, volunteers and directors
