Helping kids
find and follow jesus

Lake Sawyer Kids exists so that the children of our church and surrounding community have an opportunity to see, hear, and respond to the gospel. Our mission and prayer is that through Lake Sawyer Kids ministry, we will help children find and follow Jesus where they live and play.


At Lake Sawyer we want Sunday to be the best day of the week for everyone, especially children! We have a special place for your child Sundays at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m.

Our Children’s Ministry provides a safe, spiritual and fun environment where God’s Word comes to life through innovative lessons and more. Your child will laugh, learn, play, explore, grow, feel loved, and won’t want to leave.

If you are joining us online, each weekend we have a new video Bible story designed just for your child. You can learn the memory verse with them, and sing and dance along to the song of the month.

With each lesson we include a Parent Cue which makes it easy to talk to your child about what they learned. The parent cue has fun, real-life activities to do with your kiddos, and best of all some great parenting advice to help you succeed.

Is your child interested in being baptized? If so, we would love to come alongside you to help them understand baptism.

Bring your warm, new socks to the Orange Bldg every Sunday in October to donate to the Maple Valley Food Bank for the homeless.

preteen first friday​

Preteen First Friday – 4th and 5th graders come hang out the first Friday of the month from 7-9 pm at The Cave (Blue Bldg) for games, friendly competition, laughs and fun! You don’t want to miss it!


Join our Facebook group and follow us on Instagram for announcements, live videos from our Lake Sawyer Kids team, and more!


We want to encourage all of our families to download the FREE mobile app Parent Cue from their Apple Store or Android Marketplace. This app allows adults to access incredible resources such as videos, blog posts, podcasts, and activities that help you engage with your kids at home during the week after Sunday’s lesson.

BIBLE APP for kids

Interactive Bible storytelling and games can be an excellent way to get your child engaged with God’s word! We highly recommend the FREE app The Bible App For Kids. You can also visit where you can find additional resources for adults to help you engage with your child through these stories.


We know that sometimes it can be difficult and challenging to navigate conversations about salvation and what that means for them as kids, so we have provided an excellent parent conversation guide from Parent Cue that will help walk you through that life-changing conversation. In addition, if you find yourself having more questions and would like some additional resources or help navigating that step with your child, please feel free to contact our Children's Ministries Director, Megan Ross at and our team will contact you and answer any of your questions.
