We have returned to online programming  for our Sunday morning Kids' ROCK program! Online weekly Sunday lessons will continue to be available for the next several weeks under the Kids Rock! link on the website.


Our Nursery is for infants and toddlers up to the age of three 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.  

Kids' ROCK

This program 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 from September through June. 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. In the summer months, the Y56'ers are welcome to join with the Elementary group.

456 Club

All students in Grades 4, 5 & 6 meet monthly on a Friday evening for a fun activity such as bowling, games, movie night.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a friend. The purpose is to build lasting relationships and community with their peer group.  The Club runs from September through June.
