We love kids and want to show them how loving God is, that following Jesus is a great way to live and how church can be like a second family by involving them in the church community! Our Kidz Zone program is a mixture of our take on the Godly Play curriculum and other fun age specific programs.
We’re always aiming to grow and expand, but for now, we are proud to offer there two classes:
Junior: Ages 3-6 (preschool- Grade 1), and Intermediate: Ages 7-12 (Grade 2 - Grade 6).

How it Works
Please know that If your kids want to stay with you, no worries! They are as welcome as anyone to stay in worship (even when they cry and fuss). We also have a nursery in the back of the sanctuary where the kids can play, colour, and hang out. Sound is piped in, so you won't miss a thing.
For three Sundays each month, kids are invited to Kidz Zone in the Lower Hall as soon as they arrive to church.
Checking In to Kidz Zone
Please sign your kids in prior to worship service between 10:15am and 10:30am. For July and August, check in is at 9:45-10:00am.
Checking Out of Kidz Zone
Please sign your kids out after worship service between 11:45am and 12:00pm. For July and August, check out is at 11:15-11:30am
For the other Sunday, they are invited to join the adults in worship for an All-Ages Service where the kids will have a more active presence and meaningful role. During our All-Ages Services the kids will participate and lead in things like the offering, communion, and the annual Christmas pageant.

Time to Register!
If you have children between the ages of 3 and 12 and would like them to be a part of Kidz Zone, RDLUC’s Sunday program for kids, now is the time to get them registered!
We require that everyone fill out one of our our registration forms, even if you are only with us occasionally. Registration forms can be obtained from the office, from the Get Involved Table or from the Kidz Zone teachers when you drop your child off. This will help us know a little bit about your child, ensure your child’s safety, and keep you connected with any future events. Please complete the registration form and drop it off at the church office, or with our amazing Sunday School teachers, Pamela Linley and/or Kathleen Knox. Any Questions? Please contact the church office.
Volunteer Assistants needed for Junior and Intermediate Kidz Zone Classes
Our teachers work extremely hard and sometimes there is just too many things going on downstairs in class for any one person to handle, so we are looking for volunteers to assist in each class as an extra pair of hands. We have a signup sheet online and encourage anyone to sign up as backup each week. This means you can sign up for one Sunday a year or as many as you want, but we really do need an Assistant down there every Sunday.
Additional Kidz Zone Teachers Required
We are currently looking for some additional Kidz Zone Teachers to split up the Sundays for our current teachers and provide back-up. This is a paid contract position working on Sundays with the children to deliver lesson plans. If you are interested in this position please contact the Kidz Zone Coordinator, Doug Brown and he will let you know what is required to get you in the rotation for teaching and inspiring our kids.
