At Kids’ Church, we place the highest importance on teaching our children directly from the Bible. We believe that all Scripture points to our need to know and love Jesus as our Saviour. To make sure our kids learn this in new and creative ways every Sunday, we use “The Gospel Project” curriculum. Watch the trailer below to learn more!
We recognize that our children need to learn in developmentally appropriate ways. Because of this, your child will always be in a small group with other children their age. If your child is in Preschool-Grade 5, they will also experience a large group time where worship and additional teaching take place with children of varied ages.
Here are some simple steps to follow when you arrive on a Sunday Morning:
- Register your children at one of our computers located at the Kids Desk. Our friendly volunteers will be there to assist you in this.
- Our nursery and toddler rooms are located on the main level, at the end of the hallway from the main entrance. You can leave infants and children up to age 3. A certified volunteer will take your child and help them get settled. Remember to keep your guardian tag, so you can pick up your child at the end of the service. Please leave a diaper bag that is clearly marked with your name, an extra disposable diaper, or a clearly marked bottle (for babies only).
- Preschoolers (Age 3-5) and K-5 children will be dismissed during the service to go to their special teaching time. Age 3-5 room is next to the woman’s washrooms on the main level. K-5 classrooms are downstairs (take the coffee shop stairs). Again remember to keep your guardian tag, so you can pick up your child at the end of the service.
HERE'S A BIG THANK YOU FROM SHARON NIELSEN
WHO DIRECTED THE KIDS' MUSICAL THIS YEAR...
"On December 11, 2016, our Deer Park Kids presented a fun & meaningful Christmas musical called "The Best Christmas Present Ever"! Their presentation left an impact on all those who attended. The kids sang beautifully & kept focused throughout! Those who had speaking parts presented their lines clearly so that the meaningful message came through loud & clear! "What Will You Do with Jesus?" Our preschoolers were so cute & adorable as always! A huge THANK YOU to our kids in preschool & Grades 1-6! SENSATIONAL job!!!
