JAM Time

While the older youth and adults stay through the service on Sunday mornings, our littler members aged three through the completion of Kindergarten leave before the sermon to join a teacher in the JAM Time room in the basement.  Children hear a bible story, learn a verse from scripture, participate in games/activities and do a craft related to their story.  This is often the first experience a child will have with Jesus and the church and it serves as a foundational building block to their faith.

Each week, two adults and two student helpers lead the children in their activities. Our JAM Time room is bustling with 15-25 kids each week as they take part in age-appropriate worship. Adult volunteers have gone through a background check at church and Lakeside ensures the safety of our children through proper supervision and dismissal to the appropriate parent.

If you are looking to participate in this ministry, there are a variety of positions – and time commitments – available. From one or two Sundays throughout a school year or longer, volunteers read the stories, lead the craft or game time and engage with the children to model Christ-like love and behavior.
