We want to partner with parents to help raise-up a biblically-literate, fully devoted generation of believers in Jesus Christ. It is our desire to reinforce the spiritual values taught in your home through sound biblical instruction, quality activities and meaningful relationships with other children and adults.

WeeCare, GroZone & Weekday
We are excited to reopen WeeCare and GroZone. Our capacity will be limited and we will be following CDC and local health officials recommended guidelines. Please watch the video to find out what to expect when you come on a Sunday morning.
Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths.
God Made Me
God Loves Me
Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever
The entire curriculum is constructed to incite wonder in a preschooler and meet them where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know the three basic truths.

This mid-week program helps preschoolers learn important Bible skill and memory concepts as they study the work of missionaries at home and abroad. Through creative learning centers, they experience food, sights and customs of other states and countries. They also participate in additional art and music activities.
Kids Cove Weekday is an extension of our preschool ministry to children and their families. We offer a half day program with two, three and five-day options available for children 12 months through four years (PreK). Learn about our Weekday program and register your child.
Sunday Cool & Code Keepers
Kindergarten – 5th grade
9:30am & 11:00 am
Children are taught Bible stories and truths in creative and relevant ways. Application of spiritual concepts is reinforced in small groups where they also receive care and instruction from an adult leader.
Special Needs Ministry
Special needs children, adults and their families are embraced and cared for through this important ministry. JOY stands for Jesus’ Opportunity for You.
As a parent of a child or adult with special needs, you have the option to mainstream or place your child in a self-contained classroom. Both environments allow our special needs children and adults to be loved and nurtured spiritually. God’s word will be presented based on each child’s specific cognitive needs.
Opportunities for Special Needs
- For special needs children, adults and siblings
- Held the third Saturday of each month (check church calendar for dates)

It is that time again! Let’s get your young adventurers signed up for KIDS COVE MUSIC AND DRAMA SUMMER CAMP 2021! This year’s musical, “The Lions, the Switch and the Warm Robes,” is not about a fantasy land reached through the wardrobe in a spare room, but ancient Babylon. The Biblical story comes to life with Daniel in a den of lions, the Hebrew boys in a fiery furnace (where their robes weren’t even scorched — just “warmed”!), and some mysterious handwriting on the wall. This is a chronicle of faith in the one true God who delivers, and points to the ultimate deliverer — Jesus Christ! You won’t want your kids to miss out!
Who: For parents desiring to commit to raising their children to know and love Jesus.
When: Sunday, September 26th, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Where: Auditorium WC, Lakewood Baptist Church, 2235 Thompson Bridge Rd, Gainesville, GA
Participation in one of our parent-child dedication services is an important way for us to support and encourage your efforts to lay a spiritual foundation in the life of your child. This service is not intended as an “infant baptism” at which salvation is claimed for a child. Instead, it is a time for parents to commit themselves to model and teach spiritual truth and values in the home. Each family who participates will be assigned a Lakewood couple or individual who will join them in praying for their child to accept and follow Jesus as his or her own personal savior. These special services are held in the fall, winter, and spring at 4:00 PM.
