Children & Worship
For Children ages 3-7 years of age
Children attend worship with their parents until they are dismissed to go downstairs to explore the “Worship Centre”. There, children are met with a friendly greeter and asked to quiet their bodies and remove their shoes to enter this special place. Inside the classroom, their teacher is waiting for them. There are two adults in the worship centre at all times. The teacher then tells many wonderful Bible Stories using wooden figures and hands-on props. The children then get to explore the Worship Centre through play. They are allowed to “work” with any of the Bible Stories or to choose colouring, puzzles, books or the much-loved desert box (a sand box for all of our desert Bible Stories). This play based approach to hearing God’s stories allows kids to really explore and interact with each Bible story to help learn and love the stories of God.
For Children ages 8-12 years of age
Children attend worship with their parents until they are dismissed to go downstairs to their Sunday School Classroom, where their teacher is waiting for them. These children explore Bible Stories through reading, memorizing, games and activities.

We are the youth group from First Reformed Church in St. Catharines, Ontario. Our group is made up of teenagers who are in Grade 7 – Grade 12.
Our basic philosophy for youth ministry can be summarized by the 4 F’s…
- FIRST – God comes First in all we do (and we go to FIRST Reformed Church)
- FAITH – We are committed to growing together in Faith and helping others to do the same
- FELLOWSHIP – Spending time in our community of believers to build relationships
