Because Jesus loves children!
Our Young Church programme includes the nursery, Sunday worship, and teaching for our young people ranging from preschool to senior high. We also have weekly activities for the junior and senior high school youth and monthly activities for the kids in Grades 5 and 6 (5-6 Club). These programmes are summarized below. And for more information, please contact our Children's Pastor, Yvonne Kern, at [email protected].
Our Nursery is for infants and toddlers up to the age of two and is open during the 10:00 AM services. Nursery volunteers are caregivers who love babies and have a heart for the support and encouragement of young families and those who are new to the parish.
This programme is for preschool to Grade 4. The curriculum is designed to lay down the spiritual foundations that, in God's timing, will lead a child into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. A typical morning includes: welcoming activities, large group worship and teaching, small group discussions and games (groups are divided by age and grade). The purpose of the small groups is to apply what they learned in the large group and make it relevent to their every day lives.
Y56 includes all the Grade 5 & 6 students on Sunday morning. They meet to focus on the needs of this age group as they develop and build on their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Each lesson is based on the Bible, with an emphasis on what God wants to communicate to us today.
Y56 meets monthly on a Friday evening for a fun activity such as swimming, bowling and game activities. Everyone is encouraged to bring a friend. The purpose is to build lasting relationships and community with their peer group.
