“Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is such as these that the kingdom of God belongs” – Mark 10:14
Jesus Christ elaborated the importance of children within God’s Kingdom. As a Christian community of faith, we believe children should be provided every opportunity to explore their faith at church and into their daily lives. There’s certainly many questions pressing on today’s children, we offer a safe haven with interactive Christian lessons, reflection and fellowship.
During the 10am Sunday worship, children are invited to participate in a message specifically geared for them. With the support of the entire congregation, an Education Team adult leader will present a hands-on lesson as a way of setting the stage for the rest of their time together. Following the children’s message, the children make their way to Children’s Church where they participate in activities that are thematic in approach and interest based. The day is completed with a snack and playtime together in our wonderful playground area. Children’s Church is offered both in-person and online via zoom.
Children’s Music Ministry
Music is an important aspect of a child’s faith development. Our children and youth are invited to join our Treblemakers Youth Choir. Each Sunday during fellowship time, our Treblemakers choir director rehearse with the youth in preparation for regular singing in the worship service.
Vacation Bible School
A key ministry for our children and youth is Vacation Bible School (VBS). VBS is a one week morning ministry offering in the summer. There is an option offered for extended care from 12-5pm that is also based upon the morning VBS adventure theme. Registration opens in the spring of each year.
Special children and youth events
Throughout the year there are special children’s events such as Easter Egg decorating and hunt, Christmas party, and Halloween Carnival. Each year during Advent/Christmas, the children rehearse and perform a Christmas drama during worship.
