At LOPC, we believe that every child is created in the image of God. And we focus on incorporating children into a welcoming and loving community of faith that learns, grows, and serves together. A child’s faith is best served by a partnership between the church and the home, so we want to be a resource of you.

PROGRAMS for ChilDREN and FamiLIES

We want your family to experience the fullness of life in our community, and we have a number of programs to engage, encourage, and equip you along the way. We think of children’s ministry at LOPC as touching on five facets of faith:

  • Worship, the call to honor God;
  • Formation, growing deeper in how God created us;
  • Witness, showing the love of God to the world through our words and actions;
  • Care, looking out for the well-being of ourselves and other; and
  • Community, coming together regularly as the people of God.

Our programs in Children’s Ministry are designed to incorporate these five marks in creative and intuitive ways, so that children and families are able to see and learn about God at work in our lives today.
