Children at St. George's
Here at St. George's United Church, we believe that young people are an important part of our church family; every Sunday all ages attend the first part of the worship service at 10:30 am. Then, after "Learning Together" time in worship, children are invited to attend Children's Church programming. We strive to create an environment that respects the needs of children, honours their spiritual curiosity, and engages them in heart, mind, body and spirit. Our programs use multiple learning modalities to actively engage children through exploration of faith stories and teachings. We use open ended questions that invite thoughtful engagement.
Starting in September 2018, we will have three programs for children and one for youth:
Nursery: ages 0-3 years
A staffed space with toys and books where young ones gather for free play.
Children’s Church Jr.’s: ages 4-7 years
Children’s Church Sr.’s: ages 8-12 years
Children follow the Holy Moly curriculum, exploring stories of faith and engaging with prayer, play, and crafts at age appropriate levels.
Youth Group: ages 13+
Youth Group meets on the last Sunday of the month from 5:00-7:30 pm for dinner, striving to create a safe space where questions and stories of faith are explored and honoured using curriculum such as Reform. Youth are also encouraged to participate in service projects and church leadership.
Confirmation classes for youth aged 13+ will be offered in the 2018/2019 year: please contact Rev. Ingrid for details and registration.
St. George's Children and Youth Ministry Team is led by the Rev. Ingrid Brown. You can contact Ingrid here.
