Sunday School (Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12) is offered from September through June during the 9:15 Sunday morning service. Parents of younger children are encouraged to register their child each week in the Atrium. The children stay in the first part of the worship service and leave with their leaders after the Children’s Moment. Sunday School proper begins with a joint session in the East Chapel. The children learn faith based songs that help them learn more about Jesus, the books of the Bible, and the “fruit of the Spirit”. The energy that is felt each Sunday morning with lively, happy and giggling children is a wonderful thing. Read more.
Our emphasis on discipleship involves a two-prong approach. One helps develop our knowledge of God, the other helps cultivate spirituality and the on-going interaction the Christian should have with God through Jesus Christ. The opportunity to ask questions and hear what others have to share has been encouraging and beneficial to all. Many have stated that the learning, sense of community and fellowship that develops in these studies can be life changing. Read more.
