Children's Ministry

Lester Memorial Children's Ministries include Christian education, activities, community events, service opportunities, worship, and fun, for all children (infants through 5th grade.)


Our mission is to teach children more about who Jesus is and how much he loves them, and to give them opportunities to grow in their faith as part of a community of believers.


All activities and curriculum are designed to meet children's needs at various ages and stages of their faith journey.
