Babies, kids, tweens, and youth all start worship together with the rest of the congregation. You will experience song, story, prayer and children’s conversation in the first part of worship. After children’s conversation, the tots, kids and youth transition to their spaces to explore, create, play and experience scared biblical story and activities. We strive to create a safe environment that respects the needs of children, honours their spiritual curiosity, and engages their hearts, minds and bodies. Each month is a new theme, a biblical story, and difference activities to explore the teachings of Jesus and how children can link the sacred story to things that happen in their everyday life. Jes, Hannah, Maddy and Josh meet the children and youth where they are at on their faith journeys and are excited to explore with them!
Tots Konnect – Newborn – 3 years
Dates: Sunday Mornings
Leadership: Erin McLeese
Tots Konnect gathers in the nursery on Sunday mornings after children’s time to play, discover, create and have time together with one another. This space is available for children who 0-3yrs of age and is staffed by Erin McLeese. She can be found in the nursery, ready to welcome you before the service, and after the children’s conversation.
PK’s Konnect – 3 years to 5 years
This primary program is new this year for CBUC and is exciting as more pre-schoolers and kindies are a part of our congregation. We have created a P&K curriculum that is engaging, respects the developmental needs for 3-5-year-olds, and allows preschool and kindergarten children to learn through movement, play, and kinesthetic activities. This group will follow the same biblical story and themes as Kids Konnect, Youth Konnect, and the congregation. There will be opportunities for the P&K’s to engage with the other children on Sunday mornings!
Kids Konnect – Grades 1-4
Date: Sunday Mornings
Leadership: Jes, Hannah, Maddy & Josh
This is a safe place for kids of all ages, gender identities and abilities. Staff and volunteers make every effort to
make sure that this is a welcoming space for all children. Grade 1-4’s can expect to have programming that is relevant to their lives, unpacks biblical text and story and look at Jesus’ teachings. The curriculum is created monthly by Jes to coincide with the same biblical story and theme the youth and congregation explore. Children can expect to have fun, learn through play and movement, and explore their spiritual curiosity
Other programs that we offer for children:
