Sunday School

Children listening to Chris and ElmoAt All Saints’, we provide lively and interesting programs for our children through regular church school during the service, Summer Sunday School, and special events throughout the year. 

We are using two new curricula which we feel will suit the needs and skills of our children. The Whole People of God and Feasting on the Word incorporate art, drama, and justice issues with a study of the scriptures.

During the summer we have fun together in an all-ages class of original material based on a theme. Our themes have included such topics as Looking for Signs of God, Parables Jesus Told, and Pictures of God. Learn more about this past summer's theme, ABCs for Living.

Teachers share the instruction during the school year, and volunteers from the congregation engage with the children during the summer. Through special events and participation in worship, we aim for an intergenerational approach, and the result is that the children are known and valued by the congregation. A children’s room at the back of the worship space and a fully equipped nursery allow parents to supervise babies and young children while still participating in worship.

 

We see the arts as an essential component of a well rounded education and as a way for our children to express and explore ideas about God and community. The Annual Advent Family Day focuses on the production of a piece of visual art by families working together. We tell the Christian story through liturgical drama once or twice a year. Under the direction of a professional artist, our children keep the mural in the library corridor painted with images representing stories from the Bible.

At All Saints’ we cherish our children and walk with them in our faith journey.

Servers’ Guild

Our young people play an important role at worship through the ministry of serving at the Eucharist. Youth aged eleven and older act as crucifer, candle bearer, and assistant during the service and in the process, plant their own roots a little deeper in the traditions and teaching of the Christian community.

At the annual intake of new servers, a one month preparation and training gives the teens the confidence they need to take this leadership role.

 

Youth Groups

Under the leadership of Barbara Robertson, youth in grades 6-8 meet on Sunday mornings for the Rite 13 program. High School teens are led by Steve Sibbald in a variety of activities which include basketball nights, excursions for movies, drama, and concerts, and a spiritual pilgrimage which is a highlight of the program.

We see our youth as companions on the way, both learning from us and teaching us. We aim to give them wings so that they can go forward and continue their faith walk, well equipped and blessed by us.
