For BSLC Parents & Their Kids

We think it is important for parents, grandparents, and children to be able to experience family-friendly events in a safe and loving church atmosphere.  

Parents Night Out (Kids Night In)

Yet another food and fellowship opportunity for moms and dads! Grandparents of Beautiful Savior get together to host a slew of fun activities for children of all ages while parents enjoy a dinner out together. This is also a nice way to support local restaurants and attract new members seeking a closer relationship with God.


Holiday & Family-Themed Events

Members of the church do their best to create fun, memorable, and safe programs for kids of all ages throughout the year.


From Pizza "Pi" night in Spring to Christmas Cookie decorating in Winter, there is usually something fun to do all year round.


Tots & Pre-K Programs

We believe children are never too young to learn about the Word of God.

Wiggle Worship

Learn about God’s love through songs and musical instruments accompanied by hands-on activities. Wiggle Worship occurs during a portion of the 9:00 AM Traditional Service on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of each month.

How To Use My Bible (3rd grade)

Third graders are invited with their parents to attend a workshop about how to find things in the Bible, ways to read the scriptures, and ideas on how to make the Bible a part of your daily routine.


First Communion Instruction

Students in early elementary school are invited to learn about Holy Communion together with their parents. We usually plan the workshop at a second grade level, however we recognize that when a child receives Holy Communion for the first time is a decision each family needs to make.

Students in 1st grade and up can participate in a variety of camp activities ranging from games to waterfront, crafts to campfires, archery to horseback riding – all in the midst of a caring Christian community!
