Lighthouse Kids Club (LKC)

Written by Steven Hong

In November 2007, the Lighthouse Children’s program launched the Wednesday night Kids Club program. Coordinated by Chris Chung, and lead by a handful of members-servants, children enjoy a time of singing, teaching, small group, memory verses and crafts, followed by snacks and games. The children are split into three groups: Clubhouse (elementary), Treehouse (preschool), and Playhouse (nursery).

It was an opportunity for children to come to church to worship and learn during the week, offering a good change of pace from the fairly limited time during Sunday Second Hour. “One thing that we haven’t had during our Sunday programs is small group time,” Chris explains. “LKC has given us the opportunity to get to know the kids much better through our small groups.” Small group settings help the staff gauge better how the children are doing spiritually, which can be far more difficult in larger groups. Chris believes this “has better enabled us to impact their lives for Christ by gaining a better understanding of how much they do and don’t understand about God, His Word, and true faith.”

The ministry, six months running, is still in a formative stage. This summer, they plan to evaluate the ministry and areas of improvement. Their primary aim is to set strong gospel-centered foundations for these children. In addition, Chris describes the opportunity the ministry has in reaching out to the larger community: “LKC has already been a great way for parents and children to invite their friends and get them involved in the life of the church. We already have had a number of new kids come out!”
