"A person's a person no matter how small" ~ Dr. Seuss
We totally agree. That's why we take great care - to take great care - as we help Redeemer's littlest people learn about God's great love for them.
Plan to Protect:
Redeemer participates in Plan to Protect to create a safe place for our children, youth and volunteers in kids' ministries. It involves:
Training and police checks for all volunteers with Redeemer Kids and Youth.
Online registration and identification stickers for children and parents at check-in for the Sunday service, Awana Club and Summer Camp activities.
Maintaining appropriate adult to children ratios.
Documented policies and procedures reviewed with all volunteer staff.
Kids' Church (JK to Grade 6)
Leaders: Vivienne VanDonkersgoed
Our Sunday morning program is designed so that every child will have meaningful interactions with peers and leaders each week. We start as one large group for a time of music, teaching and activity, then split into four age-specific small groups (Junior and Senior Kindergarten; Grades 1 and 2; Grades 3 and 4, and Grades 5 and 6) where kids can talk about the lesson with their peers and leaders. Questions about our kid's Sunday program? Contact Jenny De Melo.
Moms & Tots (Preschool age)
Leader: Julia Baker
This playgroup meets on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm during the school year. Open to anyone with preschool kids, this group provides a casual, fun space for both moms and kids to connect, socialize and make friends! A typical meet-up involves coffee, chatting, snacks and play. Join the Redeemer Moms and Tots Facebook page for details and to connect. Contact Julia Baker for more info.
Sunday Nursery (0-36 months)
Leader: Vivienne VanDonkersgoed
Parents with small children can attend our Sunday morning service knowing their children are well looked after. We have a designated nursery space located right behind our Welcome Desk. Each Sunday you can expect us to be open from 9:50 to 11:30 am staffed by two adult volunteers, along with one or two teenage volunteers, to make sure our kids are well looked after at a maximum ratio of four kids to one caregiver.
Awana Club (Age 3 to Grade 6)
Leaders: Leah Lapp
From 6:30 to 8:00 pm on Wednesday nights from mid-September to mid-May, Redeemer offers the Awana program to children ages 3 to grade 6. Through small-group Bible learning and large-group Bible teaching, worship, games and awards, Awana "clubbers" learn how a personal relationship with Jesus Christ affects their daily lives. For more information - or to join at any time - contact Leah Lapp.
