  • 4th – 12th grade attend worship service with a teacher or parent.

Why?

  • Because Lancaster Presbyterian Church cares about you and your children. Your children are welcome here, whether because you hope to strengthen their moral grounding or because you need a break on the weekend and a safe place for them to be.
  • If you would like us to provide breakfast for your child, please call or text 716-698-0405 by 5 p.m. on Saturday night so that we are present and prepared to receive your child at 9 a.m. on Sunday morning. If needed, we will also try to provide rides upon request for children who do not need car seats.
  • Most of all, we believe that God has revealed in the Bible the answers to all life’s difficulties and the best way to live. This will be covered in our “character education”. Even more importantly, your child will learn that although none of us lives up to the best person we desire to be, love and forgiveness come through Jesus.
  • Jesus says: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
