Spiritual Formation — Children/Families

sunday school

Sunday School is a church sponsored program especially for children ages 3 to 12 at Barrhaven United Church. It is offered during worship after the children have spent time with the whole church family. Volunteers give of their time to help this program succeed. If you are interested in helping us out (even occasionally), please speak to Tammie. We require current police record checks for everyone who works with our children. This can be done on-line and there is no cost.

The theme in September is ‘God’s Creation’. Children will read Bible stories about creation, learn about the gift of nature and our role as caretakers as we help look after this precious legacy.

We provide a (parent supervised) nursery for children too young to participate in the program. In the nursery, parents can hear the worship service while children play or sleep.

Activity bags are available at the back of the sanctuary in case your child wants to remain in the service. There is also an activity corner in the entrance area where children can play with toys and parents can supervise and still worship with the community. Parents, we ask that you encourage the children to ‘tidy up’ these public spaces when they are finished.

Above all, we expect children to be children.
Our main concern is that everyone feels
warmly welcomed and loved in our midst.
We are glad you are here!
