Kids' Church is a time specifically for preschoolers together with their siblings, parents and grandparents. The children gather on the floor in the sanctuary for a special worship time together. Afterwards, there’s a special craft time and a simple meal together in St. Andrew’s Hall. A time for growth, friendship and learning for children and their families.
For the Older Kids
We've got a program called Kids on Mission for kids in grades 1-6, focusing on reaching out to the community: stocking food banks, making gifts for kids in hospitals and shelters, and assisting with disaster relief.
You are welcome to bring your preschooler to Kids' Church while your 1-6 grade children join the group for the older kids. All families will enjoy a meal together afterwards.

Event Details for January 27, 2018
I am writing to invite you to January Kids’ church and Kids on Mission on Saturday Jan. 27 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
Please join us in St. Andrew’s Hall at 4:30 for simple craft, then at 5:00 in the sanctuary for worship. After worship the two groups will join together for a potluck supper 5:30-6:30.
While older kids will spend time with Lorna to discover their mission for this month, younger kids will focus during worship on the meaning of the season of Epiphany. Together we will discover what it means, and why does the church celebrate it and consider it a very important season of the church’s calendar. We will focus on two biblical stories. For your reading please refer to: the visit of the Magi ( wise men/kings) in Matthew 2:1-12, and the baptism of Jesus in Matthew 3:13-17.
Kids’ church & Kids on mission is a space for kids to worship God, to ask their question, to explore faith, to get to know Jesus, and to listen to God’s call through worship, mission, and fellowship. Please extend the invitation to your friends and neighbours. New families are always welcome.
Please RSVP to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org about the number attending from your family and food that you would like to bring to share.
