St. Peter’s Sunday School
Sunday School: 2019
The children will be studying the idea of working together to make the church a stronger place and will be helping to make goodies for the soup luncheon today. The theme will be love since February is the month we celebrate St. Valentine. The children will be studying “Jesus calls His Disciples” for the last weeks of February. They will be talking about what the word “Disciple” means, and how we can all be followers and learn to be disciples in our communities.
During Lent the children will be studying the “Lords Prayer”, our Lenten project this year will be to fundraiser for the SPCA in Barrie. The children are quite excited to do something for animals this year. They will be making and selling dog biscuits, bandannas and doggy scarves beginning in March. We are trying to arrange for the children to take their donations into the SPCA. They also needs old towels, and paper products. A list will be available closer to Lent.

This year the children put together Easter Gift Baskets for the Seniors on the 3rd floor of the Seniors Integrated Care Unit at RVH. Many seniors who are hard to place in Long Term Care, live here. Many do not have a lot of family visiting them. We have been in contact with the Recreation Director and they would love to receive something for these seniors. They often fall through the cracks of outreach programs because people are not aware that this unit exists. They made twelve baskets in total for women and men and decorated them with cheery cards and flowers to wish the residents a Happy Easter.
It is important that the children are involved in purchasing the items for these baskets.. The children made sandwiches and dessert on March 4th for the soup luncheon. They earned some money toward the seniors baskets.
Palm Sunday 2018
Christmas Pageant: 2018
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.
The four new labs are featured above. The children are enjoying a different lab each Sunday as they learn about the bible stories.
- 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. This is a family and community event that is not to be missed. The Hosanna banner leads the way, while participants wave their palms.
- Every summer the children and youth join together for VBS (Vacation Bible School).
- An unrehearsed Christmas Pageant is performed every December
- The children are encouraged to 'give back' and choose a different outreach project each year to support
- Older youth are encouraged to assist at community dinner and events offered by the church
- Family outings are planned throughout the year.
