 Karen Forgave is providing young people and their parents with online links, video clips and interactive activities. This includes learning the Lord’s Prayer in sign language and the United Church GO Project Virtual Camps that offer a Virtual Kids Camp for children in grades 1-6 Monday to Friday 11 a.m. – 12 noon with storytelling, special guests, crafts, games and more, and a Virtual Youth Drop-In for grades 8+ Monday to Friday 2-3 p.m.. Both the camp and drop-in are free although donations are welcomed. Visit https://thegoproject.ca/virtual-camp.

 

Awesome Sunday School begins Sundays, at 10:30 a.m.  Children JK to Grade 12 all are welcome!

(Professional Nursery care is available for infants and toddlers age 3 and under).

St. James uses the Rotational Model for its Sunday School Program. Every four weeks, students learn a new Bible Story. Each Sunday, we meet together as a large group for stories and songs, and then the children break into smaller age-groups and rotate through various workshops, all based on the current Bible story or theme. This means that over the course of a four-week rotation, children will experience four different interactive and exciting approaches to learning (e.g. drama, cooking, computers, games, art).

St. James’ four rotation areas are:

creation2013computer2013
Creation Station. Through art, cooking, and crafts students spend time thinking about the story as they create different projects 'hands on'.Computer Lab. We have a variety of different interactive programs to help children remember the stories they are learning.
drama

Drama. Students will participate in skits, mini-dramas, tableaus, or they may watch a movie (with popcorn, of course) and see the story in a new way.Games. Through interactive games, students work with the various elements of the stories and get to know each other a little better.
