We're so glad you've come to check out our Sunday School programming!
If you have any questions or are interested in learning more, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are really excited to be offering a different form of Sunday School this year for children ages 3-12! It is a Montessori-based curriculum that invites children to develop an understanding of Christian stories, language, and rituals through a child-centred form of worship that uses music, storytelling, wondering questions, and responding in creative, child-led ways.
We look forward to having you join us in our new program Sundays at 10:30am!
We understand that not all children are comfortable leaving their families. There are pew packs available at the back of the sanctuary that can be taken to their seats so they can engage in quiet activities during the service.
Youth in grades 7+ are invited to stay in the sanctuary for all of worship or assist with the younger children as a Sunday School helper.
Sitting through all of worship can be difficult when it's something totally new; you may feel lost with everything that is being said. To help develop a deeper understanding of what's happening in worship and to help listen and reflect more intentionally, we have what we call "Worship Notes". This is a double sided page with prompts to fill in. Each prompt is meant to help you focus on different elements of the worship service through thinking, singing, drawing, reflecting and praying. You can pick one up from our ushers or click below to download it in advance.
For those youth who enjoy working with younger children, we invite you to volunteer during our Church School time with Kim and Rev. Rebecca. If you know you are coming ahead of time, send us an email to let us know. Even if you come to church last minute, we are happy to have you come volunteer with us. Your role will include participating in our child-centred worship by helping the children sing simple songs, and giving a helping hand to children as they respond to the day's story through various forms of creative arts.
