At ICF we are happy to offer age appropriate Sunday School classes for your children. Scripture Union materials form the basis of our Sunday School curriculum. Children will be dismissed for class at the point in the service noted in the bulletin, and divided into the following groups according to their age at the beginning of the school year:
MORNING SERVICE We have 6 age groups of children and youth aged 0 – 14+. It has been a joy to see these groups grow both in depth of faith and in number, with close on 50 young folks presently on our register! We are blessed to have a core team of committed teachers though always remain keen to encourage others to get involved in different ways to support the program develop. If you would like to volunteer to help with the morning service Sunday School on a regular or occasional basis, please contact Sunday School Coordinator Kim Shumlansky.
Mini-Kids: Babies and toddlers up to 3 years old enjoy songs, stories, crafts and lots of free play in the creche room with a teacher and an assistant. Nursing mothers are also welcome to use this room to tend to their babies.
Bubbles: Preschool 1-Kindergarten
Splash: Grade 1-2
X-Stream: Grade 3-5
Grid: Grade 6-8
Grad: Grade 9-12
AFTERNOON SERVICE Currently we do not have designated Sunday School classes in the afternoon but we have the Craft Corner set up in the corner of church, for children, young people and also adults to engage with the message of the Bible verse the sermon is based on through craft. Each week, a leader prepares a craft that is linked to the Bible verses and then those who wish to can move to the Craft Corner to make something during the sermon. Children under 5 bring someone with them to supervise. To volunteer to help in this ministry please contact Sunday School Coordinator Sarah Chhin.
