Bible Education Distance Learning During COVID-19
We sure miss your smiling faces and wish we could gather right now!  During this time of social distancing, we encourage you to try to keep things as normal as possible.  Watch the live stream of our Sunday morning worship service together, then break for Bible Education.  Open with some worship songs as a family, move into the lesson then have everyone join in on the craft.  Be sure to end your time with family prayer

Parents, thank you for leading your children through these videos and lessons.  During this time, we are thankful for the blessings God has given us, family dinners together every evening, processing each lesson with your child, learning and loving together.


If at any time you have questions about the video or the assignment please do not hesitate to reach out to Jaci or Pastor Kelly.

Showing God’s Love for the Littlest Hearts
Children’s ministry is where kiddos start their bible education at Living Word.  Parents, we want to partner with you in your child’s spiritual development.   We have something for kids of all ages with teaching, creativity, music and fun!
If you are new to Living Word, new to children’s ministry or just visiting for the day, click on the links above to learn more about the programs we have available for kids. 
When your child is ready to join us, contact Jaci Peterson to register.  There are no fees for registration, and you don’t need to be a member to attend any children’s ministry programs.

Safety and Fun!
Safety is our priority with your kids.  In our children’s programs, we utilize volunteers from our congregation to teach, guide and care for our little ones.  Our volunteers provide a safe, fun environment where your child knows they are loved, and you know they are well cared for.
Our Sponsor Kids
Through our children’s ministry, we sponsor three children from Ecuador.  Our sponsor children send letters regularly and each bible education class takes turns writing them back.  Each week, kids have the opportunity to give offering to directly support these kids. 
It’s amazing to watch our children learn about our sponsor kids in Ecuador as they become givers and encouragers with each other in their personal walk with Christ.
