Children's Ministry

On the first and third Sundays of each month (our Holy Communion celebrations) we have traditional Sunday School sessions, for children in JK - Gr. 6. They join worship for the sharing of Communion.

Note: For November, our schedule is different: Nov. 10 - Remembrance Sunday, and Nov. 17.

For the other Sundays of the month, children and their parents are invited to pick up 'Sunday Adventure' bags, located under the mailboxes. These bags will contain both general and Sunday specific activities for the children to engage in while they attend worship - either sitting in the area near the mailboxes or in the pews. There will be a Children's Message on each of these Sundays as well. Please bring your children, grandchildren and god-children for these Sunday adventures, and invite other children as well!
