                       No Rehearsal Christmas Pageant
The Christmas Pageant has a new format this year. We no longer have
the expertise of Deb Williamson. Due to the busyness of the time of year for everyone, we are having a no-rehearsal Christmas Pageant. This is not a new format; it was developed by a busy Sunday school Coordinator that did not want to give up on the idea of a pageant. This will involve the entire congregation on Dec. 17th. The children will be given costumes, the congregation will be given props. We are looking for someone to manage the costumes, get them out and labelled for the parts. If you can help, please speak to Myrlene. Myrlene will be in touch with each mother to distribute costumes. Don’t stay home
come out and support the children!!

2017 Lenten Children's Project

During Lent, the children made “Blessing Bags” for the homeless at the David Busby Centre in Barrie. The children used their allowance to buy items as needed. They also put money in the jar for purchasing items. The bags were packaged on Easter Sunday.

The children study the stories in four labs: The Computer Lab (The Church Mouse Pad), The Cooking Lab (Martha's Bistro), The Video Lab (Holy Word Theater) and the Art Lab (Thou Art Studios) We have a large group of talented volunteers who teach every Sunday.  All teachers are screened. In addition to the time in Sunday School, each child will have an opportunity to use their gifts and talents in the church service throughout the year. Myrlene Boken is the Sunday school coordinator and can be reached at 705-456-6731 if you have any questions. 

All children rotate throughout the various labs, from preschool to grade six. Older children have the opportunity of worshiping in the service or they can volunteer in the Sunday school to help with the younger classes.

Quilt for Youth Haven by Sunday schoolFeb. 14th, 2016: The children in Sunday school finished tying off the edges on the quilt they are donating to Youth Haven. This project has helped the children realize the need in the community for something as basic as a quilt that we all take for granted. Thanks to all the children who worked on this.

Feb. 7th, 2016 the children made some donations for Youth Haven. Each child put together a gift and decorated the cards with their names and ages. This is our children learning how to give of their time and talents to those in our community. Below are three pictures taken of the gifts and two of our children, Emma and Jase Williamson, showing the gifts they made.

cardsJanuary 31st, 2016: Our Sunday school children presented some beautiful greeting cards to the coordinator of the card ministry. Cards are regularly sent to members of the congregation who are no longer able to attend services or those who are ill or in need of a 'lift' in their daily lives. This project was created in one of the new labs in the Sunday school. We thank them for creating the beautiful cards that is sure to bring a smile to some happy faces.

Special Events

  • Each year there is a Palm Sunday Parade. The procession leaves from the local Churchill Library and makes its way to the church for 9:15 service.

  • Every summer the children and youth join together for VBS (Vacation Bible School).
