Children's Programs

Fair Havens Children's Ministry is designed to provide quality programming for children from birth to those who have completed Grade 3. 

While you are being challenged and fed in Chapel, your children are connected to God's Word through songs, crafts, bible stories and games. All children are nurtured by experienced, motivated and enthusiastic staff members who have been chosen for their care and love of children.

Programming reflects the appropriate developmental levels of each age as it focuses on their emotional, spiritual, social, physical and cognitive growth.

Children will experience joy, security and value as they meet new friends, explore God's creation and share within their group's various activities. It is our desire for the Bible to come alive as the children read each page and see how God's truth applies to their everyday life!

Our summer program highlights will include:

FAITH HEROES... in the ROCK the children will explore a person of faith in the Old Testament or history who stand out and encourage and challenge our faith. 
BIBLE FIND... Kinder Kids and Rock age group please bring along your Bibles to participate in an old-fashioned sword drill!
CHARACTER COUNTS... What does Godly character look like? How can we point others to Jesus through our word, actions and deeds?
BEING GOOD STEWARDS... What is a service project and how can we give and bless others?
BECOMING MISSION MINDED... We will be encouraged to pray for a specific country as we investigate the differences and similarities of our Destination Nation!
GLOW NIGHT... Tiny Tots and Starting Steps this is the time to worship Jesus in song, creative movement and prayer. 
BE THE CHANGE... We are collecting loose change from the children to donate to support our summer camp missions project! This is a great opportunity for you to discuss stewardship by using the Saving, Sharing, Spending model. Please encourage your children to participate and aid them in the understanding that at any age — they can make a difference!

We look forward to the awesome privilege and responsibility of nurturing your child's relationship with Jesus as we plant the seeds to help their faith grow.

Sign In / Sign Out Procedure

Ages 0 - Kinder Kidz

A strict sign in / sign out procedure is followed at Fair Havens Ministries to ensure the safety of all the children in Children's Ministry.

You will receive a tag with your child's name and number upon your arrival to program. This number will also be on your child's name tag and belongings. The tag you receive upon arrival needs to be returned when your child is picked up at the end of program by either a parent, family member or designate who is 13 years of age or older.

Should we need to contact a parent during program for any reason, this number will also appear at the front, right side of Irwin Chapel with the colour of your child's name tag. Please refer to your parent letter to clarify any other details for this procedure, upon your arrival to Fair Havens.

The ROCK

We ask that all children are signed in on Sunday morning and/or your child's first day to program by a parent. Please ensure you give the leaders verbal permission for your child to be able to leave the program independently. If this is not your desire we look forward to seeing you immediately after program to pick them up. 

NOTE:  Evening program is finished at the end of chapel. All parents not attending evening chapel please ensure your child is picked up between 8:00-8:15 p.m. Thank you for your cooperation! We look forward to a great week!
