Groups & Growth
We desire for all children to know Jesus, love Jesus and share Jesus with the world.
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.
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.
Please Note – Children’s Ministry programs are offered during the 9:15 AM and 11:30 AM services.
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.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7 • 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM
We’re so excited to invite our kids and parents to a special time together during the Christmas Season! We have a lot of fun celebrating Christmas – a time that inspires a lot of different things in all of us. It can help us see what’s important in life — things like giving to others, showing compassion to those in need, and putting others before ourselves. But one of the most awesome gifts Christmas brings is something super powerful called joy, and we’re unboxing joy at Jingle Jam this Christmas!
Join us for a morning of games, crafts, tasty Christmas treats and songs to ring in Christmas as a family. Jingle Jam is designed for you to experience Children’s Ministry with your kids as you sing, pray, play and learn alongside your kids. We hope to see you for a truly magical family Christmas experience! Please RSVP in advance using the form below.

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.
Family Dedication Classes
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 23 & MARCH 1 • 9:15 – 10:15 AM • W201
