Children

We give your child a place to grow in Christ.

#Cradle2College

Our Children and Youth ministries are growing and we would love to invite you to join our team by serving in one of three ways this year in our Cradle2College initiative. What is Cradle2College you ask, well it is just as it sounds. It involves anyone who is in in a cradle through anyone who is of college age.

We are striving to have all these kids and students become motivated by the Gospel to live out their faith every day. Our hope is that anyone that fits within this age group begins to have the word of God shape their worldview more than the culture that surrounds them every day. If you would like more info on how you can serve please fill out the form below and let’s start a conversation about getting you involved in serving the next generation at The Peoples Church. The three ways you can join our team today are:

  1. Sunday Mornings in Children’s Ministry
  2. Sunday Mornings in Jr. High
  3. Friday Nights at FNY

Young Hearts and Minds

Children may be small,  but they have a big place in our hearts at The Peoples Church. We desire for all children to know Jesus, love Jesus and share Jesus with the world. Your child’s early years are foundational for imprinting values and knowledge to last a lifetime. We want your child’s foundation to include Jesus, the truth of the Bible and a sense of belonging to the whole body of Christ. We are thrilled by the opportunity to partner with you as your child grows in Christ.

What to Expect On Sundays

We welcome your child to join us every Sunday at 9:15 AM, 11:30 AM or 2:00 PM. Sundays include large-group and small-group settings. We begin with a large-group time of worship and learning from the Bible using our DVD-based curriculum that encourages your child to love and serve God.

Special Needs

We offer a special needs ministry during the 11:30 AM service for children up to the age of 12. Children are able to play, sing and learn about the Bible in a modified program that has additional support. Contact us if you would like to learn more about this program and see if it would be a good fit for your child.

Children’s Ministry Access

Parents and children now have their own dedicated entrance in and out of the west wing of the church—helping to streamline check-in and ease traffic in the hallways on Sunday mornings. To ensure the safety of our children, only parents with dedicated name tags will be permitted in the west wing. Anyone without a name tag will need to use the front doors or another alternative exit when leaving the building on Sundays.

Finding Your Child’s Room

Use the colour chart to find the right room number and group name for your child, based on age and unique needs. If you have any questions, please ask a member of our Children’s Ministry team on Sunday mornings.

Family Dedication: Welcoming a New Child Into Your Family

Many faith traditions celebrate the birth of a child through baptism. Here at Peoples, we offer family dedication instead—and with it, we celebrate the extended circle of support provided by family and friends who are welcoming the child into their lives. Family dedication can be done at any age, until a child is ready to personally accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour and be baptized. We encourage you to consider the opportunity for family dedication to celebrate the wonderful gift that God has given you—and to acknowledge your dependence on Him in raising your child. To learn more, please contact us.

Jingle Jam

Saturday, December 2 • 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM • Gym

At this year’s Jingle Jam we want to encourage and inspire families to laugh and sing together as we learn about the true reason for the season! God gave us his son, Jesus, so that we can understand real and lasting joy. We’ll be sharing the Christmas story and teaching kids and families about generosity. Join us as we celebrate with snacks, carols and games to kick off a season that will be filled with laughter and excitement! Please RSVP by emailing Adam with the names and ages of those who are attending.
