KIDS AT TLC
Temple Lutheran aspires to not only provide a place where kids can learn more about Jesus and grow their faith, but also provide a community with strong foundational relationships. Built through faith, service, and fun, we love for our kids to grow bonds that can be taken outside of church, as well as bonds they know they can lean on. Kids are active at Temple, and so you'll frequently see them and hear them, and that's just how we like it! Youth are just as important as our other generations in our congregation. With three Sunday School classes, VBS, retreats, and plans for a Youth Group coming Fall 2020, great things are happening with our youth at TL!
Each week during the praise band-led worship service, kids are invited to the steps leading to the altar for a special message geared just to them. It's a fun way for kids to learn and feel involved in the worship service.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
It is with great sadness that the decision has been made to cancel Vacation Bible School this year. We felt it is not yet safe and wise to hold community gatherings in the church. Because so much is uncertain about the coming months with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are proceeding with caution in all aspects of our ministry. I will miss you and your kids this summer, as VBS is always one of the most exciting parts of my year. I love you all and I look forward to the day we can safely gather together again. Save the Date for next year, August 2-6, 2021.
Our Kids Club holds lots of events throughout the year, from Moviie Nights, to Christmas cookie making, to tree plantings, to pizza parties, to Phillies games, to... well, you get the idea. Letting kids have fun helps them feel comfortable and at home in and with their church.
TEDDY BEAR PICNIC
A Teddy Bear Picnic is held in conjunction with Kids' Sunday each year, in which new stuffed animals are collected to be distributed to kids in the area going through a difficult or traumatic experience.
HELPING DURING SERVICE
We love to see the young people involved! Often you might see young people helping out during the service with anything from communion to ushering! We love to integrate our TLC kids. It helps our kids learn and grow and starts them on a lifelong journey of faith.
