Sunday Morning Programs

Nursery (ages 0 – 1)

Your child will be in a safe environment where they are loved on and prayed over by our trained volunteers.

Our Nursery is located on the ground floor of our Chapel (Building B) and is offered during all three worship services.

Younger Children’s Sunday School (ages 2 – 2nd Grade)

Jesus had a knack for connecting eternal truths with everyday symbols his audience could touch, hear, and taste. With a younger audience in mind, we pattern each Bible rich lesson with a ‘hands on’ approach! Each class is fun, playful, and packed with learning! Younger children’s classes are located in Buildings C and D on Sunday’s at 8:30am & 9:45am.

Older Children’s Sunday School (3rd – 6th Grade)

Our Older Elementary Sunday school program thoroughly equips kids to know, grow in, and defend the Truths found in Scripture! Students engage in the Bible chronologically from Genesis through Revelation over the course of 3-years.

Our Older Elementary classes meet at 8:30am in Building D.

Special Buddies

LNBC is committed to meeting your family’s needs, and that includes families with special needs children. Our staff of trained nurses and special educators creates a rich environment where kids with special needs can learn freely.

Our Special Buddies class meets at 9:45am in Building C.

Worship Kidstyle (Preschool Worship)

Worship KidStyle is a worship service designed for Pre-K children and Kindergarten where they can experience an age-appropriate Bible story, fun songs, games, and other activities.

Sunday Evening Programs

AWANA
AWANA (3-year-olds – 5th Grade)

We do our best to raise our children, and when they head out on their own we hope we have left a life defining, long lasting, spiritual impact. Studies show that Awana Alumni are more committed to their faith, church, and beliefs. Awana is equipping families to know, love, and serve Christ with an unshakeable faith that lasts a lifetime.

Janelle Janelle Venters is the Children’s Minister at LNBC, and joined our staff in 2009. Called to work with children in college, she studied Early Elementary Education at Eastern Kentucky University, and is currently working toward her Advanced Certification in Children’s Ministry through Bethel Seminary. Her love for children’s ministry is intense!
