Under the direction of Rev. Mikayla Deeper, Lorain Lighthouse offers L.I.F.E Groups for grades 5-12. Students have the opportunity to gather with their peers and learn how to connect their faith with every day life.



Under the direction of Tami Clark, we offer a vibrant Children's ministry.  On Sunday mornings at 9:00 am, our kids begin in a large group setting with songs and memory verses.  Then they are divided into smaller groups based on age, led by background-checked, adult volunteers, where they can dive in deeper to the Bible story for the day.


Throughout the year, our students also get to participate in a Back to School Breakfast and Promotion Sunday, an annual Christmas program performed for the entire church family, a Biblical Breakfast and Easter Egg Hunt, and a larger than life Vacation Bible School held each summer. 

All kids are welcome!

Children of all ages and abilities are valued at Lorain Lighthouse UMC.  Our church is at its best when we experience the sounds and sights of kids in worship! 


For children birth through pre-school, there is also a "sensory room" in the back of the sanctuary, which allows parents or guardians to give their children a space to play or rest, while still participating in the Sunday morning worship service. 


For children in Kindergarten through 4th grade, we provide a Sunday School program during the 9:00am worship service. To find out more about Sunday school, check out the "Children's Ministry" info below.


For students in 5th grade through 12th grade, we encourage our students to attend one of our Sunday morning worship services and join us on Sunday evenings for a LIFE Group.  To find out more about youth group, check out the "Youth Ministry" info below.
