Collier’s Kids

Sunday School Programs

Our mission with Children and Youth is to provide a safe and sacred place to learn about God and grow in likeness to Jesus. This mission is reflected in all the various programs we offer throughout the year This mission happens daily as we love and care for all of Collier’s Kids.
 
 
Noah’s Ark (ages 0-2)
We offer wonderful care for the youngest members of our church family. They get to stay in a beautiful room with lots of toys, table, chairs and play pens.  They are supervised by a team of volunteers who are parents, grandparents, teens and other adults.  Children are welcomed by volunteers 15 minutes prior to worship.  All children must be signed-in & signed-out by parent(s) or guardians.  Our Co-ordinator always welcomes new volunteers to add to our wonderful teams which are scheduled for one Sunday each month.
 
The Rock (ages 3-5)

We offer a friendly and Godly place for our little ones to play and learn.  In September of each year, children who are 3 years of age, or will be 3 before the end of December and who are toilet trained, are encouraged to move in to the Rock. The Nursery is still available if they are not quite ready for a more planned program of story, activities and feast.  We normally have at least two leaders for each week. This class meets in the M5 for sign-in before the service. 

All children must be “signed-in” – there are two options:

1. Sign-in before worship and indicate that your child will accompany you for the first part of the Worship Service. After the Children’s Time they will go to their class. It is a good idea that you ensure your youngest children are escorted to their classes.

2. Sign-in 15 minutes before worship and leave your child in the care of the leader or helper until the other children come out of the sanctuary. 

Children must also be signed-out by a parent/adult

 
Daniel’s Den (ages 6-9)
We rejoice in having children ages 6-9 sharing in a time of learning and play.  These children attend the first part of the worship service. This group then gathers in M5 for a story, activities including art, writing, drama, board games, puzzles, active games, songs, or even baking, a feast and closing blessing.   An offering is collected before the blessing.  The learning takes place in a circle.   We have regular Leaders scheduled for this group for each Sunday, a story teller and a doorkeeper.  We welcome other helpers including parents.
 
The Well (ages 10-16)
We are excited to share time and space with our intermediate and teenagers (10-16) in a time of love and learnings.  This group meets with volunteers after the first part of worship and gathers in M4 for a time of discussion, learning, laughter, activities and more!!  We use technology in the program.
 
Program Volunteers
We have Program Volunteers for each of the age levels:  Noah’s Ark (0-2), The Rock (3-5), Daniel’s Den (6-9) and The Well (10-16).  All children must be registered to be a regular member of the Sunday Children’s Program.

Volunteers

This group meets from September-June and aims to teach youth (ages 10-17) to live at peace with each other in the church and community. Meeting twice a month for activities like Bible games and leadership development. There is always fun and faith at work! We continue to offer programs from Nursery to Daniel’s Den (ages 0-9) in the summer. During this time we provide a more informal car program until the first or second Sunday in September. Both the Rock and Daniel’s Den will meet in M5. Some of our regular volunteers take a well deserved break in the summer. Therefore, we encourage others to help to make the program happen. We only have a Sunday morning’s program when we have volunteers. Parents are welcomed to volunteer on any given day or Sunday.
