CHILDREN, YOUTH & FAMILY MINISTRIES

CHILDREN, YOUTH & FAMILY MINISTRIES

At St. Paul’s, our aim is to have a group for every child to belong. Church friends and mentors from an early stage create deep roots for a lifelong faith. We hope you will encourage the young people in your life to venture into community with us.

Our nursery is downstairs and hosted each Sunday by loving volunteers beginning at  10:20am. Parents/guardians are welcome to stay in the nursery or drop their child off with the host depending on their preference and circumstances. The service can be watched through live video feed to the nursery.

Today’s hosts: Catriona

Next week: Jamie

BOOK CHAT AND COFFEE

Book Chat and Coffee Club will begin again Monday September 18 at 1pm in the Fellowship Room. Join us that day as we choose our next faith based book. No experience necessary.

 

We are making a call out to you to consider becoming a volunteer driver.  We have several requests from folks who would like to come to church regularly or occasionally but have no way to join us.  This is a critical ministry in this day for St Paul’s. Please consider joining our team of drivers on a schedule that works with your own.  See Doreen Youngman in the Gym following the service or call the church office.

 

All ages are included and welcomed at St. Paul’s.

We are grateful for the large group of volunteers who mentor our young members and so too remember that as parents, grandparents, guardians and friends we commit as a faith family to help our children into knowing and experiencing the daily blessings of congregational life and the abundance of life with God.

Have a question or another idea…

Please see Rev. Michelle or Laura, our Youth Worker and share it.
