Our Statement of Purpose

OUR PURPOSE is to worship God, seeking to understand God’s word and will, accepting and returning the love God offers us.

OUR PURPOSE is to be a community of faith, Jesus’ apprentices, who through worship and prayer, patience and forgiveness, sensitivity and mutual support, teaching and learning, study of Bible and Creed will grow in love as individuals and as a company of God’s children.

OUR PURPOSE is to love our neighbours as ourselves, reaching beyond our congregation in ways which convey God’s love.

 

Children and Youth Ministry

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).

We do have a YOUTH GROUP!  If you are between the ages of 10 to 15 join us once a month for a fun gathering of great kids!  

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!
