Learning and Being Youth


Sunday School

Our next session: tba - the Health Unit Covid-19 guidelines for places of worship preclude in-person Sunday children's ministry at this time. We are working toward online opportunities. Stay tune!

However, there will handouts for children who come to worship, once we resume on Sept. 13.

Our previous practice;

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.

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 and grandchildren for these Sunday adventures!

Our Coordinator is Karen Bishop.

Confirmation

All youth in Grade 7 and older are welcome to be part of our two-year programme. We focus on the promises made at Baptism to help each other grow in faith and life.

Please see Pastor Matthew for more details.

An Online #EnRoute Experience

SAVE THE DATE! August 19-22, 2021

Registration Opens January 2021

Due to the ongoing uncertainty of the global pandemic, the difficult decision has been made for CLAY 2021 to be hosted as an online event.

The CLAY National Planning Committee and our National Churches are working very hard in exploring what this new kind of CLAY will look like and how it will happen. For more information, visit:

Scouting

The 178th Thunder Bay Cubs meet at Our Saviour's.

Using the Scouts Canada training and guidelines, it is able to resume its meetings, but in a new way.

The main one is that they will only be outside: no indoor meetings or camping allowed. This will continue until Scouts Canada advises otherwise and only in Ontario moves forward in getting back to normal stages.

The first two times together are on Monday, September 14 and 28, from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. The only use of the building will be for bathroom emergencies, with sanitizing protocols being followed.

For information on Cubs and registration, contact Susan,
