Young Children and Worship


Church School

Children and youth age 3 to 19 years are welcomed to Leaside Presbyterian Church with open arms and big hearts. There is a gathering time at 10:25 a.m. in the Ben McLean Children’s Chapel. Here the youth, school age children and preschoolers are greeted with a time of prayer, song, and an opportunity for sharing what they have in common with each other, the love of Jesus Christ.

After the gathering time, the children are divided into age appropriate classes where they will be given the opportunity to concentrate on stories from the Bible such as: the Creation Story to the Parables of Jesus. The classes are divided into four age groups:

  1. JK to Grade 2
  2. Grade 3-5
  3. Youth: Grade 6-8
  4. Youth: Grade 9 – up

The children and youth are learning through a variety of curriculum including Faith Alive’s “Walk With Me” and “God Loves Me”.

New children are always welcome to come and join in on the fun and fellowship. For more information, please contact Angela J. Cluney, Leaside’s Christian Education Coordinator.

Children's Choir

Children at Leaside are encouraged to share their love for singing with each other. In hopes to encourage them, Leaside offers a children's choir where they are given the chance to express their love for God. The children are invited to come to the Ben McLean Children's Chapel at 10:05 a.m. Sunday mornings before Children's Worship for choir fun. Suggestions or favorite songs are always welcomed. Choir runs from October to June.

For questions, speak to Angela J. Cluney, Leaside's Christian Education Coordinator.

Mission Project

The children at Leaside Presbyterian Church are sponsoring an ongoing stewardship project. They are collecting money for support of Seid Biruk Berchaga, their adopted friend from Ethiopia, through Christian Children's Fund of Canada. There is a bulletin board dedicated to information on Seid found in the hallway outside of the sanctuary.
