Children’s Ministries

Coordinator: Lisa Harvey - lisa.harvey@stouffvilleuc.ca We are excited to be using the Workshop Rotation Model in our Children’s Worship Program.  Through our program we strive to help our children build a strong foundation for a lifelong relationship with God. The Workshop Rotation Model focuses on one Bible Story for a period of 4-6 weeks.  This allows the children to explore and learn each story in-depth while allowing for missed Sundays and different learning styles. Over the course of each unit, the children rotate through a number of age-appropriate workshops that allow them to discover the focus story in a variety of ways.  This year we are exploring the story of Moses. The children begin each service in the sanctuary.  Following a few prayers, a hymn and, perhaps a Children’s Time, the children proceed downstairs to Children’s Worship. Our children are divided by age into two groups when appropriate to the lesson plan - age 4 to Grade 2 and Grades 3 to 5.  Each group begins with a gathering time that includes prayers and a creative telling of the focus Bible story.  Following the opening activities, the children proceed to a themed workshop.  Workshops are facilitated by adult volunteers and may include Drama, Cooking, Science, Creative Arts and Bible Basics.  Workshops may be held in the Youth Spirit room, Tot Spot room, auditorium or kitchen. We look forward to introducing you and your children to our program. Further information can be found at www.rotation.org A NOTE ABOUT OUR VOLUNTEERS - The comfort and safety of your children are very important to us.  With this in mind, we require all of our adult volunteers to undergo Level 1 police checks.

Stouffville United Young Singers

The Stouffville United Young Singers is a group of singers age 5 and up, who prepare music for special worship services. Children singing is one of the healthiest sounds during worship. If you know a child who would love to learn to sing, or share their love of singing with others, please see Courtney Britton.

Youth Group

Our youth meet every Sunday in the Friendship Room with Rev. Elizabeth.  From 12 Noon to 1 pm, we share a meal, talk about God, and think of good things to do for people in our church and in our community.   We plan outings whenever we can!   Grades 8 to 12!
