Lakeview United Church Kids and Youth (LUCKY) Club

Are you looking for programs that help you to teach your children to be confident, caring and mindful individuals?

The Lakeview United Church Kids and Youth program runs every Sunday during the 10:00 service.  The children re-enact stories, share cooperative games, sing inspirational songs and do activities to support others such as Birthday boxes for the Food Bank.  Each month may centre around a theme such as January "Let My light shine" with children decorating dye-cut little houses with battery operated tea-lights inside.

For the little ones, under 2 years old, there is a play area in the sanctuary so that parents can participate in the service without worrying about being separated from their child.  Come and check it out!

Join the Fun!

Call Janet with any questions (403) 797-4075
