MISSION, MINISTRY & SERVICE
We believe that each member “should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:10-11
First Impressions Child Care
Available downstairs most Sundays for newborns through age 3. Staffed by volunteers trained in Safe Church policies and procedures. Babies are also very welcome to stay in the sanctuary for services.
Sunday School for age 3 through Grade 3 alternates weekly with a kid's craft table. Children of all ages are always very welcome participants in services — squirms, wiggles and all!
Kid's Craft Table
The kid's craft table in the sanctuary alternates weekly with Sunday School. All Sunday School aged kids will be invited to the table mid-service for a supervised craft (some parents may wish to attend with their children). Weekly children's bulletins are available at the Visitors' Welcome Centre.
