What is SPLASH Kids?
SPLASH Kids is the expression of Lake Baldwin Church coming alongside covenant families to help children, 6 weeks through 5th grade, fall in love with God’s Story and find their place in it. Our curriculum and events are designed to grow hearts that joyfully beat for the gospel to transform the lost, found, city and world.
SPLASH Kids will be hosting its second Serving the City event on Sunday, August 5th and we want to invite the LBC family to join in the fun! Matthew 6:3-4 tells us when we help someone in need, do it in complete secrecy. On August 5th during SPLASH Kids, LBC children will become Secret Agents going undercover to serve our friends in need at Glenridge Middle School.
There are 50-70 homeless families per year who send their children to Glenridge and 15-20 additional families who experience financial hardship in a manner that prevents them from providing basic needs to their children on an on-going basis. To help alleviate some of their burden, we will be packing backpacks with school supplies, writing secret notes of encouragement and gathering non-perishable snacks to ease hunger pains. Will you help us?
SPLASH Kids is looking for individuals, families, or community groups who are willing to donate school supplies, backpacks, and snacks that can then be prepared by the children during SPLASH on August 5th. Click below to sign up for needed supplies.
Transformed by the grace of Christ and compelled by His love, our vision is to be a loving community where children discover the Gospel and families are equipped for spiritual growth. Because Christ himself loved children, we desire that our congregation imitate Him by praying for, loving and serving the children in our midst.
We offer 7 classes in 3 categories:
- Our nursery serves the Angelfish and Minnows. Check-in begins at 10:35.
- Our preschool classes, the Rainbowfish and Goldfish, learn and play in two classrooms. The lessons reinforce Bible stories in fun, engaging ways preschoolers can understand. Check-in begins at 10:35.
- The elementary classes—Clownfish, Swordfish and Dolphins—begin at approximately 11:15 when the children are dismissed from the worship service. Kids follow their group “captain” to the SPLASH hallway, where each group rotates between three stations. Each group travels the same rotation path each week and pick-up locations are clearly marked with class flags posted outside the classroom.
