Kids and teens are a very important part of our life as a community of faith. We want to teach them not just about ‘coming to church’ but about ‘being the Church’. We know that they will be the ones to pass the gospel message on to their own children and grandchildren, and to people whose lives intersect theirs, so we want to do our very best to teach them well.
At both our contemporary 11:15 am worship services (through the school year), and at our 10 am summer services, we offer a program for children ages 3 to 12.
In three age-grouped classes they’ll have fun learning the great stories of the Bible through games, crafts, songs and discussions.
Kids start in the church with their parents and go to their programs after the Children’s Focus. They return to the service in time to share Communion.
Quiet Play Area:
At the back of the church on the right hand side is a Quiet Play Area equipped with colouring supplies, simple toys, and a change table. This area is for parents who would prefer to keep their babies or toddlers with them on Sundays but would still like to be a part of the worship service.
ROOTS is our junior youth group. All are welcome to join us for a time of fun, fellowship and learning. Karyne Whalen is our ROOTS youth pastor.
CORE is our senior youth group. We connect with youth from other churches in our area. Jocelyn Maroon Bovie is our CORE youth pastor.
SCORE on Sundays!
SCORE is our Sunday morning program for teens, from grades 6 and up. It runs for the first three Sundays of the month at the 11:15 a.m. service.
On the last Sunday of the month, SCORE youth are in church for All Ages service, where we encourage them to take part in ministry that is meaningful to them reading, greeting, helping in sound and technology or assisting with the Sunday school program).
Family Friendly Services:
Throughout the year, we have special events geared for supporting families. Grandparents and aunts and uncles are welcome too!
