"Children are a gift from God." - Psalm 127:3a


“But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” And he laid his hands on them and went on his way.’
Matthew 19: 14-15

If you are wondering how best to nurture a sense of wonder about God in your children and grandchildren, then the Church of the Ascension is the place for you! Our Sunday School programs offer wonderfully rich opportunities for children to explore the mystery of God’s presence in their lives through storytelling, crafts, music, and more. Our Sunday School classes are based on the Godly Play curriculum. You can find our our Godly Play sacred space in the corner of the fellowship hall.

On a typical Sunday, our pastor captivates all of God’s children during children’s time before sending them in song on their way to class.

We celebrate all special occasions through participation. Some of these annual occasions are: an Easter egg hunt; a youth-led service; a year-end BBQ; bring a friend to Church Sunday; Christmas pageant and more.

Additionally we arrange outings, like a night at the movies – with popcorn of course, a family games night, or a bowling night. Remember we are always open to new ideas and value each parents input. In all of our programs, and everything we do, we are blessed with a dynamic team of teachers who help our children and youth in their faith development. Our goal is to prepare your children for God’s world filled with His love in sharing their talents with others, through friendship and fellowship.

We look forward to welcoming your children each and every Sunday at 11:00 am, so come and join the fun.
Remember the first hymn you learnt at Sunday School? Below is just one verse and refrain, so why not bring them to The Church of the Ascension and give them a chance to learn the entire song!

Jesus Loves Me This I Know
Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong;
They are weak, but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

At this time we would like to remind all parents that our Church abides by the “Screening in Faith” program adopted by the Diocese of Algoma to help protect the children to whom we minister.
