We're trying something new for the children during the next school year. On a biweekly basis, children will either be dismissed for Sunday School or will have a children's message and craft while they worship with their families in church. This new schedule will have children dismissing for Sunday School early in the service on the Sundays that we do not celebrate Holy Communion. On Communion Sundays they will remain in church with their families so they can learn to participate in worship and go to the altar with their families. We will have special activities to involve them in the worship service.
A nursery is provided during the sermon for young children. Bring your little ones to the Nursery during the song prior to the sermon. Children are picked up by parents in time to accompany them to the altar on communion Sundays. Please ask an usher if you need directions to the Nursery.
For parents who prefer to keep their young children with them in the pew there are activity bags with crayons and quiet toys for young children available from the rack near the back of the church. Coloring sheets and crayons are also available. Ask the ushers if you need assistance finding this area. Help yourself to a bag, enjoy the contents and then return the bag to the hanger at the end of the service.
There is also a Parents Room located at the back of the worship area. This room has soundproof one-way glass and a sound system so that parents can still watch and hear the worship service.
From 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm children of all ages will gather at the church for an exciting program of Bible stories, crafts and sports. This program is provided free of charge to all children, not just those attending our church.
Faith Foundations confirmation classes will resume on Thursday evenings, beginning on September 12 at 6:00 pm. These classes are for young people from Grade 7 up who want to explore the basics of the Christian faith and work on developing the skills they need to navigate life as a Christian. Faith Foundations is a requirement for young people wanting to become confirmed members of the congregation. This is a modular program so new students may begin at the start of any module. To register or confirm class dates please contact the church office.
