In light of the new Public Health Order we will no longer be having in-person kids classes at this time. The new orders are applicable until further notice. We will be posting lesson videos and crafts options on the website weekly. Lesson videos will be available on Saturdays and remain up for the week allowing to you to watch them with your kids at your convenience. Kids will be given a challenge every week and once we receive confirmation from you that they have been done we will mail out a small prize.
We want to remind you that we are here for you. Please reach out if you need any practical support. Although we can’t be meeting in person we will continue to be available by email, phone, FaceTime or zoom and would love to chat and pray with you anytime.
For children remaining at home, we will continue to post Bible story videos, activity sheets, and discussion questions from our Shore Kids team. It is our hope that these resources will give your kids a sense of connection to our kid’s programs.
We care about our Shore families. If there is any way we can support you, both spiritually and practically, please send an email to email@example.com.

KIDS IN-PERSON SUSPENDED
Starting October 4th, in-person kids classes will be held at 9AM & 11:15AM! Note that some changes have been made to the gathering capacity and age range as outlined below:
- 9AM – Ages 2 to Grade 6, capacity 15 students
- 11:15AM – Ages 4 to Grade 6, capacity 10 students
Registration opens each week on Wednesday at 9AM, and spaces are available on a first come first serve basis.
As per Dr. Bonnie Henry’s recommendations the class is being held in a separate building apart from our main gathering space to ensure no overlap in contact. Classes will be held in the High School Lounge. Please follow the Shore Kids sign to the left of the LGCA building when you arrive, and escort your child/children to the Kids check-in area.
At check-in, children will be required sanitize their hands before entering. For the sake of contact tracing please register the name of each child, so we have record of who was in the building. Registration will close automatically after the maximum has been reached.
CHILDREN MATTER TO JESUS
At this time, Nursery and Age 2-3 classes are suspended. Under normal circumstances we have classes for kids from birth to Grade 6. They are split into age appropriate groups and led by a fantastic team of security screened volunteers who have a passion for sharing and displaying the love of God for children.
We use gospel centred curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and theologically sound. It explains the true overarching story of the Bible, the character of God, and ultimately how to know Jesus and live out a vibrant lifetime of faith. We serve allergy friendly snacks and are sensitive and supportive of children with allergies.
SUNDAY CLASSES (SUSPENDED)
Shore Kids exists to make Jesus known and we are committed to teaching children the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is done through fun, engaging, and age appropriate lessons. Below is an outline of the various classes that are normally offered.
NURSERY (0-24 MONTHS) (SUSPENDED)
Infants ages 0-24 months will enjoy a play area with toys. We do not provide diaper changes, but have a change table in this theatre and will contact parents if the need arises. Nursing mothers are very welcome in the service.
AGE 2-3 (SUSPENDED)
Children ages 2-3 will experience a class that includes a mix of a snack, songs, a Bible story, colouring and free play.
AGE 4-5 (SUSPENDED)
Children ages 4-5 will experience a class that includes a mix of a snack, games, a Bible story, songs, crafts, and free play.
GRADE 1-3 (SUSPENDED)
Children in Grades 1-3 will experience a class that includes a mix of games, crafts, Bible teaching, and small group time.
GRADE 4-6 (SUSPENDED)
Children in Grades 4-6 will experience a class that serves to equip and prepare them for when they attend the service. In addition to lessons, they will be taught how to listen to sermons and learn more about what it means to be a part of the church and grow their identity in Jesus. They will receive an allergy-aware snack.
DROP OFF AND PICK UP
Check in either by using our computer system or by using a visitor tag. You may drop off your children 20 minutes before the service starts.
Children are ready for pick up after the first song following the sermon. Only parents with the child’s check in ticket are allowed to pick up their child, so please make sure to have that with you when you pick up your children during the response time. You will sign them out and then we love having them join us in song and communion as we close.
All the volunteers that serve in Shore Kids are believing, faithful members of the church. In order to serve with our children, volunteers must submit an application and complete a background check. Adults serve in teams and are never alone with children.
