Leader: Rhonda Squires
Kids’ Church happens at the same time as the adult service on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am where kids ages Kindergarten through 5th grade are engaged in age-appropriate learning, both in large and small groups.
Our Pre-School ministry is a dynamic hands on experience for 3, 4, and 5 year olds. We utilize all five of our God given senses to learn about who our God is.
We provide care for babies up to 35 months in our nursery. While your child is in our care you can expect your child to be in a safe and loving environment. Your child will experience a time of worship, an age-appropriate lesson, and a snack.
Mid-Week Evening Activities
Wednesdays 6:45p – 8:15p, for both young men and ladies, K-12th grade. Each program has specifically tailored small groups (divided by grade) for effective and fun small group activities. The overall purpose is to connect our kids with God in a personal relationship.
Mpact Girls Club
A small group atmosphere with big community impact! We engage young ladies in activities, Scriptures, and life skills, to draw them closer to God and enable them to see His works in their everyday lives.
In a world where many boys are growing up without a father figure, Royal Rangers brings men and boys together in appropriate relationships to learn life skills. Some of the merit badges include: fire craft, tool craft, camping, compass, first aid, rockets, and more.

Two Options, One Week:
• 9am-Noon: Traditional VBS (Free with registration)

What a great way to celebrate summer than with Life Church’s Annual VBS. This year’s theme is Cave Quest – Shining Jesus’ light! Crafts, games, songs, and amazing Bible stories await all those who attend Cave Quest this year.
We actually have two options at the same time. Our morning (9a-noon) VBS is free to the first 100 kids who register. If your family desires an all -day option (8a-5pm), then we can provide that also for the first 35 kids who register and pay the $125 fee. During our all day camp, we leave campus by bus everyday for a field trip to a variety of places around Portland with the Life Church youth as camp counselors.
Hope to see you at Cave Quest at Life Church!
