Early Years

Bible Basics in the Early Years

“I am a child of God.” – John 1:12

In the centre of Kidz Town you’ll find off ramps to our Early Years rooms, creative settings designed to capture the imagination of 2, 3, 4, and 5-year-old children. Kids meet new friends while discovering the Bible basics through games, music, story, activities and fun.

 
Elementary

Travel beyond the realm of not knowing into a relationship with Jesus.

“Not all who wander are lost.” – J.R.R. Tolkein

Elementary (Grade 1-5) children interact in large group worship and Bible teaching, then join age appropriate small groups to discuss and begin to apply the truth they’ve just learned, develop close friendships with their peers and share together with consistent small group shepherds.

 

 
Resourcing parents to build faith in their children

NO ONE has more influence over your child than you do. It’s God’s design!

Did you know that moms and dads are the #1 influence in the faith life of their kids, 75% more impactful than church leaders?  We want to inspire and equip families in the essential area of faith-building and discipleship of their own children.

Forward Church recommends parents engage with curriculum-friendly discipleship resources designed to inspire and equip parents to build faith in their own kids.

Published by ORANGE, our preschool and elementary curriculum provider, these creative, Biblical activities and discussions help parents seize on teachable moments to make the most of the opportunity.

1. The PARENT CUE APP helps every parent do something each week to help move their child toward a deeper faith and a better future.  Available free on Apple and Android devices.  Download The Parent Cue App.

2. PHASE You have approximately 936 weeks from the time your child is born until he or she graduates from high school.  It goes by fast, and kids change and grow quickly. It’s as if they shift or move on just as you’re starting to figure them out. It all makes the responsibility to shape a child’s faith and character feel overwhelming. Download Phase .

Celebrating your child’s dedication

Partnership in the Journey

“And Jesus took the children in His arms, placed His hands on them and blessed them.” Mark 10:16

It’s a great moment when parents sense that their child is a gift from God. Our child dedication celebration provides an opportunity for parents to publicly express their decision to raise their child in a way that honours God. It is also a time for our church community to say, “we will partner with you in this journey”.

Dedication celebrations are held twice a year (spring/fall) during the morning services and include a pre-requisite class for parents. Would you like to have your child dedicated? Register for the next class.

Need more information about this important celebration? Contact Neil our Children and Family Ministries Director.
