Children's Programs

Leah Mercer2018

We've been blessed with many children at Faith Church!

Raising our children to know Jesus in a loving and nurturing environment is a responsibility we all share—in fact, it's a promise we make as a community when they are baptized. Faith Church has programs for children from birth to young adult.

Children's Ministries During Covid

Welcome Back to Kids' Ministries!

We are so excited to have our kiddos back in the building on Sunday mornings, and for our mid-week programs.

Nursery (Newborns–age 3)

Sunday mornings during our worship service.

Nursery is a safe place for our youngest members to have a positive first experience of church. It's a welcoming, consistent space that toddlers and young children can look forward to enjoying each week. Often, it's the first place a child learns to be away from their parents and cared for by someone else.

Young people aged 13 and up are encouraged to volunteer to be active and engaged helpers in the nursery. At least one parent of families who use the nursery regularly should be on our nursery volunteer list.

Volunteers wear masks, sanitize frequently, and we have expanded our nursery space so that kiddos can be spaced further apart. Please register your whole family for Sunday worship, and register your kids separately for nursery once you arrive at church.

Children's Worship (Ages 3–5) Now combined with JourneyKids (Age SK- Grade 4)!

Sunday mornings during our worship service.

This is a time of fun and learning in a safe, nurturing environment..

Each month we learn a new theme. We begin with a presentation of the Bible lesson in a large group setting and then break into small groups for more personal discussion and reflection. Throughout the morning, the kids will engage in activities that will help them relate to the lesson in a tangible way.

Our goal in JourneyKids is to promote discovery and invite kids into an ever growing relationship with Jesus.

Please register your children at the registration desk near the nursery. Kids will head downstairs when dismissed from the worship space. At the end of the service, parents/caregivers must stay upstairs and wait for their child to be sent up to them when the program is over. All ages will be together for now. 3 & 4 year olds are encouraged to wear masks, and all kids sk-grade four are required to.

Gems

GEMS (Grades 2–6)

Thursday nights, 7–8:30 am every other week at our Sister Church, New Street CRC (September to April)

GEMS stands for "Girls Everywhere Meeting the Saviour". The GEMS program aims to help bring girls into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.

In GEMS, girls meet in small groups of six to eight and get to know each other and their leaders well. Girls participate in team building; enjoy dynamic singing, develop important life skills through badge activities; and make creative and fun crafts. They learn life skills, such as emotional and physical health, citizenship, understanding disabilities, building family and other relationships, resisting peer pressure, and activism.

Girls also participate in Bible study and do service projects that make a difference in other’s lives.
