Children and Youth Ministry

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL! 

Have children aged 3 and up?  Sunday School happens during the second half of the service — crafts, stories, games, and fun.

Is your child under 3?  We have a well stocked nursery that has a window out into the sanctuary and a speaker so that you can hear the service if you are up there (often we have volunteers from the congregation help in the nursery).

WHISPER CORNER —The congregation of Whitmore Park United Church welcomes children in our worship service.  We provide a “Whisper Corner”, where children can quietly read, draw, colour or do puzzles.  It is available every Sunday prior to Sunday School and on holiday Sundays when we do not have a Sunday School program (e.g., Thanksgiving Sunday, Christmas vacation, Summer vacation).  Check out the calendar to find out what is happening on a Sunday.

Have questions about the SUNDAY SCHOOL PROGRAM or the YOUTH GROUP activities, please do contact the office and we can put you in touch with the coordinators!
