Kids + Youth

Sunday Morning Children's Ministry

Childcare

Nursery is available downstairs during worship services for children under two years old and is well staffed with volunteers. The “quiet” room upstairs is available for parents who want to care for their children but wish to hear and see the worship service.

Little Lambs

Little Lambs is available for two-year-old children during the entire worship service. Little Lambs is located downstairs.Our youngest learners in our Little Lambs and Beginners programs are in a classroom setting with age appropriate activities, songs, and learning provided by their wonderful and dedicated leaders.

Sunday School

Sunday School is available for children ages 3 (“beginners”) through grade 8. Currently all Sunday School is run during the same hours as our church service, with children being dropped off at their respective locations before the start of service at 10:00 AM.

JK to Grade 6 participate in our new Station Rotation curriculum, where they are broken into crews by age and each week get to visit an interactive station to learn about the Bible concept for that Unit. Each Unit is four weeks in length, and they rotate over those four weeks to four different stations including Art, Science, Cooking, and Games. Our Station Masters prepare age appropriate lessons that are highly interactive and also take some time to dive into their Bibles and explore God’s Word. Every week begins with a large Group Greet session where all JK to Grade 6 kids will join together for praise and worship time before breaking out into their stations. For our Grade 7 and 8 age group, they have a customized curriculum taught in a classroom, as well as opportunities to sit in service to hear the sermon, and then break out following the sermon to meet as a group with their teacher for sermon discussion.

We have over one hundred kids in our Sunday School program!

Other Ministries

Children’s Worship

Once a month during the school year, Sunday School classes from grade 3 to grade 5 join together for Children’s Worship downstairs. Children’s Worship is usually led by one of our pastors.

Story Hour

For children 3 to 5 years of age. They hear and participate in a Bible story, make a craft and sing songs. For the 2 year olds, the Little Lambs class offers more play than structure. Wednesday Mornings from 9:45-11:00am (Thanksgiving to Easter)

Sermon Discussions

On Sundays that we have Children’s Worship, grade 6 to grade 8 students stay in worship and then have a sermon discussion together downstairs immediately following the sermon.

Seasonal Ministries

Vacation Bible School

Each July, several Drayton-area churches work together to host and run a one-week Vacation Bible School. This year, from July 6 – 10, climb aboard for mountains of fun at Rocky Railway! On this faith-filled adventure, kids discover that trusting Jesus pulls them through life’s ups and downs.

Countryside Camp

As the summer camp ministry of Countryside Camp and Conference Centre, Camp Shalom strives to provide campers and special support guests with fun and educational programming in a safe, accepting and, above all, Christ-centered environment.

SU Sport Camp

The week is packed with skill development, drills, games, scrimmages and awards, as the campers rotate through 3 sports; basketball, ball hockey and soccer. The emphasis is on campers having a blast while learning core skills, gaining confidence on the field/court and making new friends.
