"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 (Age 3 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?
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.
