Children's Ministries Director
We believe that Foothills and parents need to work as partners to help our kids grow to Know God, Love Others, Reach Neighbours and Serve the World. What happens at Foothills Kids on weekends is a catalyst for parents to have God-centered teachable moments and conversations at home. Our commitment is to offer Sunday morning programs that spiritually nurture kids (age 2 to gr 6), while parents attend weekend services.
Though we aren’t able to always connect in person, we are commited to providing parents of children from infant to gr 6 with resources to help them in the journey of helping kids Know God, Love Others, Reach Neighbours and Serve the World.
When we're not able to meet in person, we meet online. Contact Heather, our Children's Ministries Director, for Zoom details.
New here? That's great! Check out our FAQ below for all you need to know about your kids at Foothills.
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to register your child at the Children's Check-In Desk. You can find us in Simpson hall on the east side of the building. Every child is entered into our Check-In system and given a label that matches your label with a unique code. A volunteer will walk you through registration and help you figure out where to find your child's classroom!
Our highest priority is the safety of our children. Every child age 2 to gr 6 is signed in and out of their classroom, and pickup is only completed when the corresponding parent/guardian code is confirmed. In all classes, parents/guardians are welcome to come and meet the lead teacher and other volunteers running your child's class. All of our volunteers are screened, including police checks and references, and are well trained to create a fun, nurturing space for your child.
We offer age-appropriate, fun programs for age 2 to gr 6. At each level, children learn about the Bible through story, scripture memorization, games and music. Under AHS guidelines, we will not currently be able to provide programming on Sundays for nursery and under 2.
Our programming is designed to be engaging and age-specific. While we understand that coming to a new place can be frightening, we ask that each child attends the class that's designed for them. In all classes, parents are welcome to help their child get settled.
We believe in teaching our kids the importance of giving our gifts to God - including our money! We support two sponsor children with the offering collected each week: one in Cambodia through Place of Rescue and one through Impact Ministries.
