Welcome to Berean Lakeville
Berean DNA runs through our first multi-site campus location in Lakeville. Meeting at Lakeville North High School, this FaithFamily has absolutely burst into existence.
People can't seem to get enough of the strong, biblical teaching simulcast on our state-of-the-art systems, passionate live worship band, or the feeling they get when they connect with this authentic body of believers.
Weekend programs include something for babies through teenagers. Adult education is also an option throughout the year.
We look forward to the time when we can call a church building "home," but in the meantime, we are blooming where we are planted, and enjoying much fruit. Come on out and meet us at Berean Lakeville.

Our mission is to see the lives of kids and their families transformed by the power of the gospel. We want to partner with parents in teaching the younger generation about who God is, what He has done for us through His Son, and to guide them toward knowing and loving Jesus.
Berean Kids programs are provided by a dedicated staff of employees and volunteers. Each one is committed to display Christ's love to the kids at Berean.
Safety & Security
Because we value the safety and security of your kids, we have implemented the following safety measures:
- All of our volunteers have been interviewed and have passed background checks. We regularly provide training to ensure we are serving your kids to the best of our ability.
- We use a computerized secure check-in/check-out system. When you check your child in, your child will receive a name tag and you will receive a pick-up tag. You must present your tag when you pick them up at the end of the service.
- Nursery parents will also receive a 3rd tag for items you bring to the nursery.

What to Expect
Plan to Arrive 15 minutes before the worship service so we can help you become familiar with our check-in process and introduce you to the leaders in your child’s classroom.
Check-In: Our computerized check-in system provides security for our Berean Kids while parents attend worship. Once your child is registered, you will check him or her in and receive a numbered name tag for your child, and corresponding parent pick-up slip. The numbered pick-up slip ensures that only a parent or guardian may pick up their child.
Well-Child Policy: In order to ensure the health of other children and workers, please refrain from bringing your child if he/she has had any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours: diarrhea, vomiting, 100+ degree fever, rash, non-clear runny nose, or has been on antibiotics for less than 24 hours.
Food and Snacks: Berean Kids does not provide snacks for any of our classes. Occasionally a leader will bring a special snack and will post a notice at the door to alert parents.
Bringing Items to the Classroom: Older kids are encouraged to bring their Bibles. We do ask that children leave toys, cell phones, purses, etc. in the car or at home.
Cry Room: located between outside the Worship Center on the east wall of the cafeteria.
Mothers' Nursing Room: located outside the Worship Center on the east wall of the cafeteria.
If we need to contact you after you have dropped off your child, we will text you on the cell number you provide at the time of check-in.
Your kids are welcome to attend the worship service with you. We have kid-friendly worship activity bags available at the entrance of the Worship Center.
