Ministry of Families

NOVEMBER 5, 2017

Our Faith Questers led us in a wonderful song of affirmation as they followed Alison's direction. "I am Amazing" is a great song to sing, especially the "like Crazy" line. 

OCTOBER 29, 2017

Our Faith Questers were in costume today as they gathered for a Hallowe'en Party after Alison shared with them a story about filling one's Invisible Bucket. We all listened intently and have been "filling our own invisible buckets" as we move into the new week. Thank you, Alison. 

OCTOBER 22, 2017

The Faith Questers gathered on the steps of the chancel to hear Alison offer a song about gratitude and generosity. They had a little walk in nature followed by a session of quilting as they continued work on their project. Next week, October 29, Faith Questers are going to be in costume for the Hallowe'en Party. All you young ghouls and goblins, come prepared to have fun. 

OCTOBER 15, 2017

A nature walk marked the beginning of Faith Quest for the little ones today as it will next week, weather permitting. Their Faith Chat focussed on a song of praise and members of the congregation were invited to suggest things for which we offer praise and thanksgiving.

It was especially fun for your SDUC webmaster to watch her little grandchildren taking part in the candle lighting ceremony at the beginning of worship of Sunday.  The programs is well underway in Robertson Hall and adjoining classrooms and you can read all about them in the newsletter which is attached below. (Newsletter Fall 2017) Remember that Ministry of Families requires a completed registration form for children and teens who wish to participate in the program. 

SEPTEMBER 24, 2017

Children and Youth started their programs at 10, returning upstairs near the conclusion of the service for the covenanting service. They were excited as were their elders as we sang grace then headed to Robertson Hall for our Congregational Community Luncheon. Lots of pulled pork, salad, desserts were available to act as backup to lots of great conversation. Thanks to the meal providers, set up and take down crews. 

SEPTEMBER 17, 2017

Continuing with the Faith Quest questions, Alison and Trent led the children gathered on the chancel steps. Abbey was at the registration table both before and after service as parents registered their young ones. 

SEPTEMBER 10, 2017

Alison, Trent, Abbey and Nooshin are gearing up for a new Faith Quest season. The youth met on Saturday night, September 9, 2017, and the little ones gathered on the chancel steps with "eagerness" for their Faith Chat. Welcome back, team!!







Here at St. David’s we strive to take the “school” out of Sunday. Our children’s program is rich in activity and offers an “experience” that invites children to explore our Christian faith in relation to our lives today. As well, we provide opportunities to participate in community events and service projects at and beyond St. David’s. For more information, please contact Alison Demeter at 403-284-2276 Ex.110 or
