In the Children's Ministry at Long's Chapel, or LCKids as we call it, we strive to give kids (birth - 5th grades) a place where they can feel comfortable and relaxed as they come to learn about God's love for them and others. We want kids to be excited about church and to feel like they are a part of the big picture of God's Kingdom. We love having fun while we learn and develop relationships with each other and Jesus!

Below is a look at some of the exciting things that LCKids has to offer you and your family!

Sunday Mornings are a blast in LCKids! Here's a glance at what we have to offer!

8:20 Hour

Nursery (Birth-2)

Quality childcare is provided for children birth to 2 in our nursery. Nursery staff will provide your littlest one with tons of love in a safe, nurturing environment. Feel free to check out the Infant-Toddler Nursery Parent Information Booklet.

Children's Church (3-5 years)

Although not as structured as the traditional Sunday school class, preschoolers attending the 8:20 & 11:00 Children's Church will participate in a Bible lesson incorporating stories, crafts, and coloring. The 8:20 & 11:00 Children's Time is taught by our nursery staff with years of experience working with this age.

9:40 Hour--Drop Off begins at 9:30 am

Sunday School

With the exception of little ones in the nursery, traditional Sunday School is provided for children 3 years old to 5th grade.

For 3 year olds thru 3rd Grades, we use Dig In curriculum by Group Publishing. This curriculum is developed in quarters addressing a Bible theme which is taught in several modalities, including reading, music, crafts, singing, acting, coloring, and writing.

4th and 5th Graders focus on the Connections that the Bible and a relationship with Jesus makes in their lives. CONNECT Curriculum is used for this age group.

K(ap)OW Kids' Own Worship

In this Worship Service for Kids, we worship our amazing God--with kids in mind! Kids preK through 5th grade are welcome to join us in the Venue and then move down for their own active and kid-themed worship time.


How to make the call if your child is too sick to participate in LCKids' Events

We want to protect all our kiddos and volunteers/staff. With that in mind, please keep your children home if they have had any of the following in the past 24-hours:

  • Fever over 100-degrees
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Runny nose with green or yellow mucus
  • Communicable eye infections--including pink eye
  • Contagious skin rash
  • Cough or croup
  • Any symptoms of Mumps, Measles, or Chicken Pox
  • If your child will require medication, it must be administered by parents/guardians. Nursery staff and volunteers are not allowed to administer over the counter or prescription medications (except diaper cream).

    Nursery Staff

    Our Nursery Staff works with kids from birth through kindergarten to partner with parents in bringing God's love into lives.
