"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.

Sunday Nursery (0-36 months)

Leader: Vivienne VanDonkersgoed

Families with kids aged newborn to age 3 are encouraged to join us for our Nursery Program offered during the regular Sunday service. Parents can drop off their child(ren) in our Nursery room (located off of the main foyer) prior to service. If a child needs parental care during the service, the child’s number will flash on the main screen in the sanctuary. Have more questions about our RedeemerKids Nursery program?

Leader: Vivienne Vandonkersgoed

From 6:30 to 8:00 pm on Wednesday nights from mid-September to end of April, 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. Registration for the 2022/2023 Awana program will open July 15th. For more information contact Vivienne.

Moms & Tots (Preschool age 0-5)

Leader: Julia Baker

This playgroup meets on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month from 9:45 am to 11:45 am during the school year. Open to moms with preschool-age children, this group provides a casual, fun space for both moms and kids to connect, socialize and make friends. This year we will meet at different outdoor locations in Orleans for fun activities, playtime and conversation! Please register for each event and remember to bring snacks and a picnic blanket for you and your child(ren).
