The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.Deuteronomy 6:4-9
The Scriptures clearly teach that believing parents are responsible for raising their children in the instruction of the Word of God (for specific examples see Deuteronomy 6:4-9, 11:18-21, Psalm 78, Proverbs 1-6 and Ephesians 6:4).
At Lake Bible Church, it is our desire to equip parents in shepherding their children in the truth of the Gospel. We view ourselves in a support role: we are teaching the Bible to children as parents are listening to the preaching of the Word which shapes and forms them for ministry in their homes.
Every Sunday morning we feature biblical Sunday School lessons on the storyline of Scripture. We use The Gospel Project curriculum, a three-year journey through all of the Scriptures. The curriculum shows us how Jesus is at the center of every story–whether in anticipation of His coming, in casting a role that He perfectly fulfills, or expressing our desperate need for Him.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to invest themselves in the storyline of Scripture along with their children. Each week we mark where we are in Scripture on the giant timeline above our check-in counter and highlight the particular truths on which we are focusing on the wall directly behind the counter.
Lake Kids News Weekly Email
We want to help our parents build a foundation of biblical literacy for their kids. Every Tuesday our parents receive an email updating them about the week’s lesson from the Gospel Project and offering questions, insights, and tools for discussion. To sign up for our weekly email click here.
We want to further equip our parents with excellent books. Every week between services we open our Family Book Table and Resource Library. All of the books we offer are heartily recommended by our pastors.
We hold quarterly Parents’ Forums–open to all parents and guardians–in which we discuss theological issues and cultural trends as they pertain to parenting according to the Gospel.
