Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
The mission and passion of CBS Canada’s Children's Ministry is “Everyone in the world, in the Word”!
For babies 0-12 months, we offer babysitting by paid babysitters and volunteers in a warm and loving environment.
Our Baby CBS bible teaching program is offered in some classes for the 12-24 month toddler. It highlights play in a creative and loving environment. The little ones gather together on a blanket and we share a very simple picture Bible, sing and have a snack.
For ages 2-5, the Preschool Children’s Ministry is composed of three 1 year courses which contain 30 lessons to match the number of weeks in our yearly session. The classes are divided by age groups and each class is led by a team of leaders supported by class volunteers. Each lesson includes our Bible story for the week and also the aim, craft, memory verse and worship songs which all complement one another. Creativity is encouraged through playtime, drama and skits, singing and special projects.
All the children receive a weekly home paper, outlining the Bible passage taught so that the parents are able to talk about the Bible story during the week with their child and practice the memory verse together. As well, the parents receive a weekly home paper presenting very helpful suggestions in understanding how to raise your children.
