KidsLife is a place where kids discover, explore, and experience the wonders of God. A place where faith and imagination go hand in hand. We have the honor of ministering to newborns – 4th graders at each Lakewood service, planting seeds of faith in young hearts who will choose God for a lifetime.
To effectively reach children with special needs outside of the capacity of KidsLife, Champions Club was launched in 2008. Our goal was to create a program that would meet the developmental needs of our children at their individual level - spiritually, intellectually, mentally and physically. Champions Clubs are now in schools, churches, and facilities all across America and around the world.
As we began to prepare for our 10th year of Camp KidsLife, we wanted to truly celebrate all that God has done throughout the course of our ministry. We wanted to celebrate the diversity of our gifts and our community here at Lakewood Church. It was that desire that birthed Celebration Theater, where all abilities are celebrated through the arts.
We are thrilled to present Beauty and The Beast, Jr. using children and youth with differing abilities. You will see actors from KidsLife and Champions Club perform together, as well as mentors who have worked side by side our Champions actors throughout this process.
Our ministries have been impacted greatly through this endeavor. We pray that it will be an equally moving and memorable experience for your family.
