At Knox, our Church School strives to bring the message of God's love and Christ's teachings to children and youth. We want children to discover, develop and rely on their relationship with God.
We offer classes for all children from Junior Kindergarten up to Grade 8. Children and leaders meet in the Sanctuary at Children's Time during Sunday morning worship. Church School at Knox endeavours to encourage all age groups on their faith journey.
PRESCHOOLERS are full of wonder and open to discovery. They also have a need for security. At Knox they can feel secure in the depth of God's love.
GRADE SCHOOL CHILDREN are beginning their self discovery. At Knox, we help them to work out their connections to others, to their world, and most importantly to God.
We are all Children of God. We are all part of the Knox Family. We all have gifts to share with each other... children with old members of our church family and in turn, older members with our children and youth.
All ages are welcome at Knox in worship, at Communion, celebrating Baptisms and in class rooms.
For more information about our Church School Programs please contact Karen Bellamy, Church School Coordinator.
