Inside out: a family experience

Joy. Sadness. Anger. Disgust. Fear.  God has given each of us the capacity to feel deeply.  

We were created to be emotional beings, yet so often, our emotions end up ruling us instead of us ruling our emotions.  Every age group is dealing with how to process and make sense of the feelings and emotions we all experience.  In this month - long event, we are going to discuss mental and emotional health

and understand how God will use them for His good. 

FREE family movie night! 

Friday, May 28th


The Inside Out Series will kick off with an outdoor watch party of the Pixar movie.  

This free event is for all ages. Due to the weather prediction of rain, the movie will air inside the worship center.

Plan on bringing your own lawn chairs and blankets to sit on, along with your favorite movie snacks to enjoy during the show. We will have a popcorn concession stand on site, offered by

our Student Ministry with all proceeds going to help offset the cost of their summer retreats. 

Invite your friends, family & neighbors to attend this Free Family Fun Event!



LSC will host a fun, engaging, and hands on experience for every age group.  

Regardless of how many are in your family or whether your age is 8, 38, 88 or somewhere in between

we all were created with emotions and feelings.  

Each Tuesday evening we will explore how to process, embrace & understand how God created us as emotional beings.

*ADULTS:  We have invited some local experts to come and speak with the “grown-ups” 

about strategies, resources, and techniques in processing and dealing with our emotional health. 

The evening will include a 30-40 minute presentation, time for some Q&A, 

followed by free dessert and guided table discussions. 

*KIDS: Kids will explore their emotions and ways they can learn to cope & process them through age appropriate stories, games, snacks, hands on activities and more!  

Kids birth through 3 years old will enjoy activities focused on their age & development in their classrooms.  

Kids age 4 years old through 5th grade will move through five different stations throughout the LSCKids! wing & outside on the LSC campus (weather permitting).  


Parents are required to stay on the property for the duration of the program. 

*DINNER: We invite you to bring your own dinner and eat outside picnic style beginning at 5:45pm

*Adult & Kids Programing runs from 6:30pm-8pm

*Kids Check-in opens at 6:15pm

*PARTY: Plan on joining us June 29 from 6:00-8:30pm, for an evening of fun and celebration!

There will be free food, yard games, music and activities for all ages. 

Enjoy some time getting to know others in a fun and enjoyable environment. 

Bring some lawn chairs, a smile and your appetite as we have a summer party together.

*We ask that all attending REGISTER so that we are prepared with enough supplies & desserts for everyone! 


Sunday morning worship service IN Person at 9:30am & 11:15am

or on youtube Live at 11:15am

We kick off our 6 Week summer series, Inside Out, beginning Sunday, May 30th. 

This series is for the ENTIRE family (ages 0-100+)!  

Everyone will enjoy creative elements, interactive surprises, and worship music together in the worship center!  

This series will take a "hybrid" approach, as we will dismiss kids to their age appropriate classes in the middle of the service time, so that adults can engage in teaching from Lead Pastor Pat Malloy and kids can dive deeper in their message in fun ways they relate best to!  

*MAY 30th - Kids (Toddler age on up) will stay with parents the entire service in the worship center with many special elements planned that will engage all ages. 

*Nursery open each Sunday for the entire Worship Service time. 

*Check-in your child prior to service each Sunday for a smooth transition time during our hybrid approach. 

Invite your family, friends, and neighbors to come with you! 

We are excited to have local experts join us throughout the month of June on Tuesday nights.  These mental health professionals will lead us in a 30-40 minute presentation, with time for some Q&A, followed by free dessert and guided table discussions.
