Our Church School extends a warm welcome to all children every Sunday morning, with classes for Nursery through High School, as well as a supervised Creche for babies, where the service is livestreamed for parents who would prefer to stay with their little ones. If this is your first Sunday with us, please ask one of the ushers to direct you to the Christian Education department or ask for Sharon.
Under the direction of Betty Jo Christiani, our children are currently learning two wonderful songs to share with the Congregation on Palm Sunday and Mothers Day. We ask that you make every effort to have your children attend church school in the coming weeks, so they will have time to learn the songs and feel comfortable singing during the services.
The Church School children continue to work on their PWS&D Project, alongside the Mission and Outreach Committee – they are performing helpful tasks at home, as well as in their neighbourhoods, to earn money on their own to buy a Cow and Goat!! Truly a Mission Project which involves a hands on effort!! We will continue to give regular updates on their progress, every Sunday! The project will be expanded congregation-wide, once Mission and Outreach has chosen a project. In the meantime, our children were very anxious to get started! You can look forward to their
“Cookie & Hot Chocolate/Lemonade Sale” after the Service in the Narthex on April 16.

Thanks to all of you who joined us – your enthusiasm and encouragement, inspires me to continue organizing these special events!! Sharon
