Family & Children

 

 

Families are important!

Families are an important focus of our ministry at St. Paul's so we plan many special activities with families and children in mind.    

Reaching Out in Love at Christmas

Advent is the season just before Christmas. Its a time when we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of the Christ Child. There is no better time to teach children (and adults!) about God's unconditional love. 

Servant Events - on Wednesday evenings in December we will gather at 5:30 pm for a Servant Event, a family-friendly project designed to show God's love in our neighborhood. We will be decorating cookies, stuffing stockings and packaging up warm socks for those less fortunate than ourselves this season. The servant events will be followed by a potluck supper at 6:00 pm and an Advent worship service at 6:30 pm

Wednesday, December 5 - Christmas stockings for the children served by Ruth and Naomi's Street Ministry through their Family Feast dinners and other family programs. We are collecting small toys, warm toques and gloves for children and young teens.

Wednesday, December 12 - We are packing up plates of your Christmas baking to share a little love with some special seniors in our community and our neighbors at The Village supportive housing facility next door. Please no nuts in your baking.

Wednesday, December 19 - Warm feet for the street! We will be supporting the work of Cyrus Center Youth Shelter and outreach program by collecting toques, warm socks and gloves which the Centre will distribute throughout the winter to youth in need. 

"One Small Child" - Children's Christmas Program - December 23 at 10:30 am  

The children of our Sunday School are working hard to prepare a special Christmas play for presentation on Sunday, December 23 during our worship service. This special service will be followed by a Christmas potluck lunch and special activities for the children. Guests need not bring food for the lunch ... just come and be our guest. We will be delighted to welcome you!
