Children from age 5 to 5th grade please come join us for Sunday School in Denham Springs. We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:50 AM, upstairs in an area called My Father’s House. Come join us this Sunday!
Spiritual Formation of Children
The Children’s Ministry is led by Leslie Akin, our founding pastor, and by Marsha Boutte, a gifted public school teacher of 25 years. Luke is our church family; children are a gift to our family. We have so much to learn from them. Jesus drew a young child to his side and said to his disciples:
Unless you change and become more like these young children you will not enter the kingdom of God.”~Matthew 18:3
Jesus was giving a clear directive. Value children. Learn from children. Embrace them as co-travelers in your journey of learning to love Me and one another.
A Sunday School Parable
A seed sits in the soil of the ground. Insistently, a root cracks its coat and crawls deep into the cool earth, producing more and more tentacles of growth. Slowly, but surely an unrelenting sprout peeks its green head above the earth. Unaware of the gift of new life happening in their midst, people pursue their busy days.“
Every day the gift to new life happens around us. Every day children take root and stand ready to be for each of us a bright, revitalizing gift. Daily agendas, old habits, lack of knowledge, and preconceived notions fill our demanding days, and life-giving growth can easily go unnoticed.
What can I expect from the Sunday School in Denham Springs at Luke 10:27?
You can expect your child to experience spiritual formation at Luke 10:27. Spiritual formation of children is best defined as a process of God being with children and children being with God so that children can become more like Jesus.
How and where will Sunday School happen?
Children from Birth to 4 Years:
In the front foyer of the church adjacent to the sanctuary, two well-equipped classrooms stand ready to welcome infants and toddlers. Children are immediately accessible to parents at any time.
Sunday School in Denham Springs for Children 5 Years-5th Grade:
The children’s area is located upstairs, above the foyer and is called My Father’s House. It consists of four rooms: (1) The Sacred Story Room: learning the holy scriptures through Godly Play, (2) The Treasury: learning how to treasure what God treasures, i.e. the fruit of the Spirit, music, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, (3) The Holy Mystery Room: learning about Holy Communion, Baptism, the Incarnation and Resurrection, and (4) The Missionary Room: learning to go out and serve others in love.
What happens during the Sunday worship service at Luke 10:27?
We love having children present during our Sunday worship services, and welcome opportunities for their leadership. After singing together, the children are taught, prayed over, and given an activity pamphlet that coincides with the sermon to work on during church and to begin discussion at home. They can sit on the front row with the children’s pastor or with their families. A Cry Room, with a wide window and speaker for experiencing the worship service, is available at all times for parents who chose to use it.
We are deeply grateful for the privilege of being with your child.
