OUR GOAL FOR CHILDREN
1. To guide them towards faith in Christ
2. To guide them to grow in grace and knowledge
3. To guide them towards loving others made in God’s image
Highlight of our Ministry
Our dynamic children’s ministry starts with community worship at 10:30am every Sunday. After children’s time and a praise song, we gather as a large group for a Bible lesson, leading into small group time. During small group, we discuss how to apply these Christian teachings to our lives and participate in other activities.
The first Sunday of each month is Fun Sunday. On these days, we celebrate children’s birthdays and participate in games, crafts, Bible trivia and so much more!
We minister to children from nursery to grade 8. Both the nursery and the children's program are held in the Sports Hall and the Sunday School area in the lower hall.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
We offer a local community program offering a safe and fun space where children ages JK – Grade 4 can play, learn and develop friendships. The program runs each Thursday at 3:30-5:30pm from September to June, and includes snack time, group games, music, faith formation and a monthly theme (such as animals, baking or sports).
Our program is run by adult and high school student volunteers (with police record checks) and also offers a leadership training program for Grades 6-8. A walking school bus is available from HVVJMS at 3:25pm dismissal. The suggested monthly donation is $20/child or $30/family. Please email Heather Carver, our Administrator at SGK, for more information and to sign up, or call the church office at 416.233.8591.
