PASTORAL CARE

Visitation

Keeping in touch with our church family is an on-going effort, through phone calls, visits, or simply cards to wish them well or know they are in our thoughts and prayers. These efforts compliment and support those of the minister.

EDUCATION

Sunday School

Children join the minister for Children’s Time during the early part of church service, enchanting the congregation with “wisdom beyond their years”. They assist with the monthly Food Bank Sunday and Coins For The Sanctuary collections, encouraging everyone to contribute to these efforts.

The kids and teachers continue their services in our four Sunday School rooms. They rejoin the congregation for Communion Sundays.
