kidz zone

Kidz Zone will take a break in July and August 2019 to ensure that our teachers and helpers get a well-deserved break.  Kids are still welcome at the church throughout the summer.  There will be activity packs at the back of the sanctuary to help entertain the kids.  The nursery is also available for the younger ones to be able to move and play during the service.  We love our kids and want them to continue coming!  Please know that we don’t expect the kids to be perfectly quiet and still throughout the service – they are kids!  We hope to see you all in the summer!  

We are excited to offer Camp Caravan August 19 - 23, 2019 here at Red Deer Lake United Church. Read more about this awesome camp for kids in preschool to Grade 6!

Remember to keep an eye out for volunteers needed in the fall to help ensure our kids have a great place to learn about God and the Bible.


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 these two classes: 
Junior: Ages 3-6 (preschool- Grade 1)

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.

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. (Please note that there is no formal children’s programming during July and August 2019.)

 

 

Checking Out of Kidz Zone
Please sign your kids out after worship service between 11:45am and 12:00pm.  

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.


volunteering

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.
