Raising a family is a difficult responsibility. South Calgary desires to come alongside families and be there for you. Related to this, we have two goals for Sunday mornings: 1) we want parents to be able to experience and hear from God, and 2) we want your children to learn about God in an age appropriate context. For these to take place, we offer children’s ministry during the morning service.
Sunday Morning – Babies & Toddlers
Nursery Care is available for Babies (age 0 – 18 months) and Little Tykes (19 – 36 months) for the entire Sunday morning. The Nursery is located off the lobby on the main floor.
Sunday Morning – Kingdom Kids
About 30 minutes into our 10:15 Sunday service, children are dismissed to Kingdom Kids where Bible-based curriculum is taught by dedicated teaching teams. Our current curriculum, The Bible Action, is designed to take children through the Bible in 2 years in a fun and stimulating learning environment.
Tuesday Evening – Kids In Praise
Kids In Praise, an exciting, energetic children’s music and drama program, runs every Tuesday from 5 to 7:15 p.m. For the second year we are excited to offer Kids In Praise, for free! Kids In Praise is a very energetic, God-lovin’, Lord-praisin’ choir for kids in grades 1-6 where kids learn the basics of singing and drama and then perform on a Sunday morning for family and friends. Following the weekly music rehearsal, a kid-friendly supper is provided free of charge. During the group discussions that follow supper, kids learn more about the theme of the choir production while others rehearse the drama portion of the production. Children have a chance to share thoughts, feelings, ideas and prayer requests, as well as just have fun. We also have fun nights with games and crafts during the year.
The Fall 2018 season is set to begin rehearsals on Tuesday September 11 with the performance of Miracle on Main Street scheduled for Sunday December 16 at 10:15 am.
For the second year we are please to offer the “Parent’s Cafe.” A relaxed cafe running every Tuesday evening during Kids In Praise with complementary coffee, tea, sandwiches and desserts for parents and young children. it is located at the north end of the church lobby outside the toddler area where children have a safe place to play together while parents visit.
Summer – Day Camp
For decades South Calgary Summer Day Camps have been an exciting week of learning and fun. In 2017 and 2018 we took a break from Day Camps and are excited to be back with a renewed half day Day Camp for July 15-19 2019. The Day Camp will be open to children entering Grade 1 through entering Grade 6. It will be a week of teaching, games, crafts and snacks. Watch for registration to open in March or April.
