FAITH DEVELOPMENT

 

 

 

 

Sunday School

Welcome!  We meet Sunday mornings during the worship time, with
  • a Junior Class for children in Kindergarten to grade 2
  • a Senior Class for children in grades 3 and up
All children are welcome to participate.

Each week’s program includes singing, crafts and stories of God’s love for us.  We follow the “Whole People of God” curriculum, which is inclusive and gives our leaders a lot of resources to work with.  The leaders are adult volunteers from the congregation; some of our teens also assist.

We also have special events through the year:
  • third Sunday “Fun-day” with a special theme for the children as well as the rest of the congregation
  • Christmas pageant on the 2nd-last Sunday before Christmas Day
  • Chili Cook-Off in March to help sponsor our Christian Children’s Fund child, Banyala in Burkina Faso
  • Pot-luck picnic at the end of June, with all the congregation (and you!) invited to join us

Summer Vacation Day Camp

We are excited to offer the children of Winona and Grimsby an opportunity to participate in Vacation Day Camp for a week in the summer.  Part of Hamilton Presbytery’s Summer Camp program, the half-day week-day program runs at the church from 8:30 to11:45 am.  

Volunteers from the church and camp counsellors from Presbytery share God’s love through skits, crafts, songs, games, outings and – of course – snacks!  They keep the children engaged and safe during the week, and they help the children enjoy special activities like a visit to Puddicombe’s Farm to ride Little Pud, cherry picking at Bridgman Farms down the lane from the church, and a visit  from the staff of Winona Gardens.

The theme this year was "Hero Central: Discover Your Strength in God."
