Teaching and leading our children is a central ministry of our church. When we witness a baptism, we as a congregation pledge to do all in our power to support the baptised person in their life in Christ. We rely upon many dedicated volunteers to provide an environment where our children can learn of the love that God has for them.
Children in preschool and kindergarten through grade 5 are Champions. In the Sunday morning 10am ministry for children the Bible is taught creatively with skits, videos, music and interactive storytelling. Grade level small groups are intentionally shepherd by loving leaders dedicated to sharing God's love. All of the church school leaders and assistants are required to have a background check.
The acronym we have chosen for the church school is SHINE
Share in God's word. (worship)
Help others. (service)
Invite others to know Jesus. (evangelism)
Nurture friendships. (fellowship)
Experience God's love. (discipleship)
Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good
works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

Currently, our children are walking through the Bible by taking a whirlwind journey from Genesis to Revelation. The children are experiencing a relationship with God through the eyes of ordinary Bible people. They are discovering that they are just like people God has always loved and worked through. Each week our children read a different book of the Bible, act out the Bible story and CREATE a page in their own Bibles.
If you miss a Sunday, just come early to class the next Sunday to make up your missed page.
Children's Sabbath May 13
At the 10 am service, there will be many special opportunities for our younger children to participate in Worship: reading from the Bible, ushering, taking the offertory, singing and teaching us about the Books of the Bible.
