Kids’ Quest


kidsquest

Parents and caregivers have an opportunity to be the primary spiritual leaders in a child’s life. With this in mind, it’s our desire to partner with families by providing biblical teaching in a loving and caring environment on Sunday morningshelping children learn how to love God with their whole heart, and encouraging them to serve Christ faithfully. Together, we can inspire children to live out what they learn on Sunday morningand develop a lifelong relationship with Jesus. 

Sunday Mornings

At 10:00, all children JK through Gr. 5 who are in the main service will be invited to the front to be prayed for as a group before heading upstairs for classes in our Children’s Wing until 11:00. 

JK-SK (Room 2)

Gr. 1-2 (Room 5)

Gr. 3-5 (Room 11/12)

Children in Grade 2 and under must be signed in and out by their parent or caregiver(Sign in books are located in the front foyer before the service and in the classrooms at pick up time.) 

Each week, children are taught a lesson based on the Bible and accompanied by crafts, games, and a snack. There are at least two volunteers for each Sunday school class.  Stay up to date with what your child is learning here.

Nursery

Our Nursery is open at 9:30 and will be supervised from 10:00 – 11:00. This environment is intended for children under 18 months. 

Please ensure that your child is not in need of a diaper change when you drop them off as it is against our policy to change diapers. If parental assistance is required mid-service, you will be contacted via text message or an onscreen page.

Toddler Room

Our Toddler room, located upstairs in Room 16, is supervised from 9:30 – 11:00 and is intended for Pre-K children between 2-3 years old.

Junior Youth

The Junior High class (Gr. 6-8) is led by our Youth leaders each Sunday between 10:30 and 11:00, during the discussion time. They meet in the Upper Room (top of the main set of stairs).

Volunteers

We are always looking for volunteers, so if you are interested in serving in the Toddler Room or in a Sunday morning classroom, please contactkidsquest@elevationwaterloo.org

We have a very thorough screening process for our Children’s Ministry volunteers. Volunteers must have attended Elevation for a minimum of six months and are required to submit a detailed application that includes three referencesa brief interview, and a recent criminal record check. Volunteers must read our Plan to Protect policy and attend annual refresher training workshops.

A copy of our training video is available here. [Coming soon…]

Allergies

We have a severe peanut allergy in our congregation and would ask that you and your children avoid eating breakfasts that contain peanuts on Sunday mornings. If your child has an allergy, please let us so that we can take the necessary steps to ensure that we keep your child safe.

Playgroup

Our Playgroup meets on Tuesday mornings at 22 Willow to find support in a community that is experiencing the same joys and challenges of parenthood. Children ranging in age from newborns to Kindergarten have the opportunity for free play and, on occasion, more structured activities. Details about our Sticky Fingers Playgroup can be found here

Summer Day Camp
