Kids' Church is our Sunday School children's program that runs during our weekly morning worship. Kids aged 4-11 gather in the hall to sing songs, hear a Bible story, and have fun completing an activity or playing a game. The kids join in the worship before we receive the bread and the wine, so that families can participate in the communion part of our service together. Adventure Centre takes place during the first 45 minutes of the worship service. We have a roster of about 20 teachers and helpers, and use the Seasons of the Spirit curriculum. It's a ton of fun, and all kids are welcome!
At most every Sunday morning service, Joanne takes some time to talk to the kids on the steps of the altar. There, she gives them (and the adults of the congregation) a synopsis of the day's sermon and then sends them off to their Sunday School classes in the Parish Hall.
ChIC (Children in Church)
Something that is very important to all of us at St. Augustine's - Parkland is getting our children involved in worship services. This is not only through the annual Christmas Pageant, but also a number of other times throughout the church year.
