Armour Heights is dedicated to helping families deepen their faith together. We do so by providing a variety of seasonal resources throughout the Christian year, sending out emails and newsletters with practical ideas for families to try, and we provide an annual TLC Workshop, including seminars on Nurturing Faith at Home. We also continue to focus on building our family library, with resources available for children, youth and parents alike.
We have a growing Family Library with resources for Children, Youth, Parents, Families & Church School Leaders. It is located in the Scott Duncan Hall by the windows. Feel free to sign out books, CDs, & DVDs any time!
Rally Day: Every year on the Sunday following Labour Day weekend we kick off our new School Year with a gigantic party! With a lively worship celebration, renewing of our covenant to grow and serve together throughout the year, and a delicious BBQ and bouncy castle, we celebrate who we are as family and who we are as God’s Children.
Advent Potluck, Crafts & Music Night: Each year on the first Sunday of Advent we get together for a fantastic evening of feasting, creating crafts, singing, and making meaningful gifts for others. You won’t want to miss this celebration that helps us to prepare for the season of hoping and waiting and anticipation!
Christmas Party: Each year after the Children’s Christmas Pageant dress rehearsal, we celebrate with our annual Christmas Party!
Christmas Carolling: Each year all ages are invited to tour around the neighbourhood singing carols. Afterward everyone heads back to the church for hot chocolate and cookies! Usually the last Sunday before Christmas.
Pancake Supper: Every year on Shrove Tuesday (the day before Lent begins — usually in February) all ages are invited to come and enjoy loads of Pancakes and Sausages! After Supper there is a short program especially geared toward children. Always fun for all ages!
Church School Picnic: Mid-June we celebrate the year by thanking the Church School leaders and then enjoying a Church School Picnic after worship. There are games, face painting, lots of food, etc. All ages are welcome!
