At Faith Community, we believe that children are not a nuisance that needs to be dealt with, but a vital part of our worshipping family. God promises to be God to “you and your children after you.” He cares about our kids; they are part of His household, the church.
We also believe we have a responsibility to teach our children God’s Word, training them to be worshippers of Jesus. “We will not hide them from their children, but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done” (Psalm 78:4). This responsibility belongs especially to parents, but also to the church as a whole.
Children’s Church, then, is much more than babysitting. Our goal is to teach kids the Bible in a way that helps them learn and enjoy it. We want them to love church because they love to worship God!
How Children’s Church Works
Kids are with their families for the first half of the worship service. After the offertory, they are dismissed for Children’s Church.
Currently we have 3 classes: Nursery/Preschool (0-4), Primary 1 (Kindergarten & Grades 1-2), and Primary 2 (Grades 3-4). All classes use the Hands On Bible Study curriculum, which emphasizes how the entire Bible points to Jesus. Each week there is a Bible lesson with interactive activities.
