KIDS

We believe that teaching kids about faith, values, scripture and life is critical to preparing them for a rich and fulfilling life.

We work hard to ensure our church is a place kids want to be and where parents are comfortable leaving their kids. We have a secure check-in/check-out system. We prepare lessons, games and activities to teach kids about values, faith, God and how it all fits together.

SUNDAY MORNINGS

We have incredible programming for children’s ages 0-12 during all of our church services across all locations.

Click on a particular age group below to get a better idea of how things work.

NURSERY (0-2 YEARS)

CHECK IN/CHECK OUT

Parents register their children in the lobby before the service starts. Toddlers may be dropped off at the nursery no sooner than 10 minutes prior to the service. Parent receive an individualized code at check-in, which they must keep and present to counter staff in order to check-out their child.

Parents will receive a personal text or missed call on their cell phone to alert them if their child requires their attention.

Please promptly pick-up your child at the end of the service.

 

TODDLERS (2 YEARS OLD)
Volunteers play with the children for the first 30 minutes. Children then move to a story area where they have a circle time which includes action songs, Bible story and prayer. Centre play will follow circle time and this includes thematic activity centres, art and snack.

PRE-SCHOOLERS (3-5 YEARS)

Preschoolers learn Bible stories and the importance and relevance of them to their lives. Through structured play that utilizes the different learning strengths of kids, they are taught the underlying principles that transcend the stories. They enjoy stories, singing, games, bible memorization, crafts, and a snack time.

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT

Parents register their children in the lobby before the service starts and then sit with their children in the main auditorium. Parent receive an individualized code at check-in, which they must keep and present to counter staff in order to check-out their child. We believe that families should have time to enjoy church together.

When children are dismissed, about 12 minutes into the service, our teachers (wearing lab coats) will take the children to their classes. If you prefer, you are welcome to accompany your child to their class.

At the end of the service please promptly pick-up your child from the preschool area.

Once you enter the classroom and locate your child, take a few moments to allow them to show you the activities they have participated in and then check them out with a leader.

ELEMENTARY (GRADES 1-6)
We aim to help kids understand Biblical principles and grow in Christian character. There are two elements to a Sunday morning: Large group and small group.  The large group time is a high-energy environment where kids; learn how awesome God is and how much he loves them; have opportunity and space to worship; and where video and drama are used to creatively teach the lesson. In the small group time, groups are led by coaches and provide an opportunity for; deeper teaching at age-appropriate levels; friendships to develop; and for individual encouragement to take place.

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT

Parents register their children in the lobby before the service starts and then sit with their children in the main auditorium. We believe that families should spend time at church together. 

When the children are dismissed, about 12 minutes into the service, your child can go with the teachers (wearing white lab coats) to the elementary area. If you prefer, you may accompany your child there. 

 At the end of the service please pick-up your child from the elementary area.
