Matthew 19:14: Jesus said “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these”.
We love having the opportunity to minister to children! We strive for inter-generational worship where children, parents and workers participate and learn together.
Sunday School Classes:
Children participate in Sunday morning worship service, and then proceed to their classes following an object lesson at the front of the church with the Pastor. We offer a staffed Nursery for babies and children up to and including the age of 2. Our classes are made up of: Little Learners [ages 3 to 5], Beginners [ages 6 to 8] and Explorers [ages 9-11]. Our Sunday School runs from September through June. During July and August we offer a combined class for ages up to 10, plus the Nursery.
We strive to equip our children with a basis of Bible learning, having a focus on Bible stories, songs and activities that will help children to learn about Jesus Christ. Our programs involve Scripture and interactive participation.
Child Safety Policy.
The safety of children is a top priority for us at First Baptist Church Ottawa. To that end, we screen each volunteer through a process of discernment, reference check, police check and training in Child Safety Policies.
The Sunday School participates each year in the Canadian Baptist Mission Awareness Project.
The adults in our congregation faithfully pray for our children. Our Prayer Friends program brings together the two groups in a positive and friendly manner, thus encouraging the development of meaningful inter-generational communication.
We believe in the next generation and the impact they will have on the world for Jesus Christ! We at First Baptist Ottawa want to empower our young people with Christian spirituality and social skills to help them cope in the future.
Children and Families play an important part of church life at First Baptist Ottawa. It is our joy to assist all in spiritual formation.
Our goal is for children and youth to love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ; to learn from the Bible and to grow spiritually in a safe and nurturing environment.
We would love to meet you and welcome your children!
