Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” - Matthew 19:14
We believe Jesus loves children and we do our best to provide a fun and safe environment where children can meet and be transformed by Him. We want to honour the children of our church, their parents/guardians, and most of all, Jesus.
On Sunday mornings we have a variety of ministries for children from birth to Grade 6. Our children age 2 to Grade 6 participate with their families in the Church Service for approximately the first 20 minutes. At that point, the Pastor will dismiss the children to go to their ministries.
In order to ensure child safety, every child MUST go through our check-in / check-out system. Parents/Guardians will have opportunity to check-in before the Church Services begin, or when children are dismissed from the service. Visitors/newcomers must complete the MRAC children’s ministry registration form BEFORE their child can participate in any ministry. Newcomers receive a Guest tag with number which must be returned upon check-out. No child will be allowed to check-out unless the parent/guardian has their child’s tag and prints their name on the form.
Newborn to Age 2
Our supervised Nursery runs for the full duration of our Sunday services. Should the need arise to notify the parent to return to the Nursery, the child's number will be visible in the main auditorium.
Our regular Sunday Morning Kids programs take a break for the summer, and we run Kids Corner for Ages 2-5 & Grades 1-4 at the regular time, approximately 20 minutes into the service.
Kids going into Grades 5-7 (Middle School) will stay in the whole service during the summer. We have Pastor’s Pals colouring booklets and crayons available at the entrances to the Worship Center as you arrive. Any younger kids who choose to stay in the service may also take a Pastors Pals.
Please return the crayons to Guest Services at the end of the service for a small treat!
Whole New World, BibleLand, and Middle School will resume on September 8.
Grades 1 - 4
We believe that children love to learn and have fun. In Whole New World, we combine the two as we explore and learn the truths of God. The children have a group session time with songs, skits, games, and lessons. After the session, they go into small groups for further discussion and life application.
Whole New World has a new theme each year with different settings and characters!
Note: You can pre-check your Grade 1 - 6 children in before the service begins, so you can save time when they are dismissed during the church service.
Here are some pictures of our themes from past years!
Ages 3 - 5
In BibleLand, children learn the truth of the Bible through songs, crafts, activities, and stories. Our teaching emphasis alternates each year between Old and New Testament stories. The BibleLand room is on the north side of the Courtyard.
First time guests must accompany their child to be checked in.

If you're planning to bring a child to Children's Ministries, you will need to fill out a Registration Form.
Feel free to download a copy of the form, fill it out, and bring it with you to save time.
We also have copies available at the Check-in Table.
