Welcome to Redeemer KiDS
Our Vision: To make our God BIG and His Gospel BEAUTIFUL
Jesus announced His Kingdom is here and then he showed what His kingdom looks like. He was crucified and raised from the dead as Lord of all Creation, and to make us right with God. This is the good news we call the gospel.
In all our classes we will teach the Story of the Scriptures: a unified Story that shows the God who made the world, loves the world, and is rescuing the world through Jesus.
This story shapes us, and, by the Spirit, makes us into new creation people who live out this story in our shared communities.
Our Faith is Practiced with Family
10:30 - 11 am IN SERVICE FOR WORSHIP
11 - 11:45 am DISMISSED TO KIDS CLASSES
Children are a gift from God, given to us to steward. Our children belong to God which takes the pressure off us to be “perfect parents,” and frees us to faithfully form them into followers of Jesus in the way of his kingdom.
Our children are present in our worship service, and we encourage parents to use these services as opportunities to form them as worshippers of King Jesus. Sing songs into the ears of your little ones and pray the prayers, “speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:19).
Every Monday, parents receive an email reviewing Sunday’s lesson in the kids' classes and Table Talk ideas to engage your children in the week’s story.
We practise giving the covenantal sign of baptism to our infants – a gift of grace for the children of believers welcoming them into the family of God.
We are committed to protecting and caring for the children at Redeemer. Each volunteer in our ministry is required to complete an application process and vulnerable sector check. We have two adults in our classrooms at all times.
On Sundays you will find the following:
We provide a seating area at the rear of the auditorium for parents with little ones, should you need a little more space.
If a little one gets fussy, we as that parents make their way to the parenting room down the hall where the service is LiveStreamed.
TODDLER CLASS (Toddling – 2yrs)
PRESCHOOL CLASS (3yrs)
Little ones are introduced to the gospel from the Jesus Storybook Bible, great resource for small children teaching them that Jesus is the centre of the Scriptures, showing them how every story “whispers His name”. This is followed by a short gospel video and activity time.
JR KIDS (JK & SK)
SR KIDS (Grades 1-5)
These two classes are taught using the Gospel Project curriculum, working through both Testaments. We also incorporate a short catechism, utilizing either the New City Catechism, or the Apostles Creed.
AGES 11 & UP – in the service
We desire to support parents in teaching God’s word to their children. By sitting under the preaching of God’s Word together, families can continue in conversations during the week and grow together. Sermons are 30 minutes.

Preparing Your KiDS For The Lord's Table
We welcome children who have been both baptized and have made a profession of faith to the Lord's Table. Use our "Gospel Basics" to help teach your child to understand their need for the gospel. Children who are ready to make professions of faith meet with our elders who to hear their profession, encourage them in God's love and then welcome them to eat, drink & celebrate at the Lord's Table!
