Children’s Ministry is a mission program of the church operated by the Children’s Ministry Coordinator and a great team of committed volunteers, who ensure the program respects the Core Values and Bedrock Beliefs of MCC Toronto. Team members are bound by MCC Toronto’s Code of Conduct.

To further MCC Toronto’s ability to serve our youth we invite you to join our Circle of Friends Program.

Vision

“To provide a place to conduct Sunday School that is safe, clean and conducive to learning”

“To provide a vehicle for the children of the congregation that fosters knowledge of, and respect for, all religions – in an environment that is interesting, fun and that connects to the seasonal journey of the church”

Programs

We involve the children in the life of the church through participation in special events such as Easter Service, Black History Month, Mothers and Father’s Day, and even Lessons & Carols at Christmas time. The Children’s choir sings once each month at the 11am service and also partners with other MCC Toronto teams such as Dances of Universal Peace and planting bulbs with the Garden Fairies.

Children’s Church and Nursery

Lesson plans are wholesome, fun, interactive and inclusive, reflecting MCC Toronto’s vision not only for the Sunday school but the church as a whole. Children are divided into 2 groups, 4-7 years and 8- 12 years old. The Whole People of God (WPOG) curriculum is used.

Parents are welcome to leave their babies and toddlers in the care of our Nursery Caregiver – until they become 4 years old, at which time they transition to Children’s Church. Children are always in the presence of a minimum of two adults. Parents must remain in the church in case of an emergency (please keep your cell phone on vibrate in case we need to urgently reach you.

Attendance

We would love to have your children join us at Children’s Church every week, but we understand families have a lot going on, and cannot always attend.

No matter how often your child can attend, be assured they will always be welcomed with open arms.
