We want each child to experience a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We also value children’s relationships within a small group setting (we call these KDG’s, Kids Discipleship Groups) as they relate to their small group leader and other children within the group. As families commit to attending the main meeting each week, children are placed in a group of familiar faces where their relationships can grow.
We are passionate about children learning about Jesus in a way they understand. Our environments and lesson materials are created based on the physical, mental and emotional needs of each child.
We believe that safety is vital as families entrust us with their children each week. Therefore, every child’s name tag is matched to a parent-identification number.
Check-In is open between 8:10-8:40am. When you arrive at Church, please make sure you check your child in to our Children's Ministry before you head to the main meeting.
We have a dual focus when you choose to entrust us with your child. First, we want to provide your child with an excellent worship experience where we minister to them on their level, but second, we want you to be able to enjoy your worship experience distraction-free and completely at ease with your child’s safety. We have two primary elements in place to help achieve this second goal: our Check-In system and ourParent Alert system. On your first visit to Kids Church, we will ask you to complete a Registration Card and check your child into their age specific group. Check-in is open between 8:10-8:40am which gives you time to check your child in and make it to the main church meeting. We will ask for the following personal information: family member’s names, children’s names and birthdates, family address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.

We will issue your child with a Name Tag and a Tag Number. You will also be given a Tag with the corresponding number of your child, which you need to show when collecting your child.
We also want you to know that if we ever needed to contact you during a meeting, we have a system in place for that as well. If we ever need to reach you during the meeting, we will send a message to our Media Team who will display your unique Tag Number on our big screen in the auditorium. If we don’t hear from you within 5 minutes, we will also send you an SMS.
With these two systems in place, we feel that you can rest assured that your child will be secure in Solid Ground Kids and we are honoured that you would trust us with your child.
Creative Bible Teaching
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.
Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus.
Ministry and serving is what God has called us to. We serve not because we have to but because we want to and because it's what pleases Him. Take a look through our Ministries and if one stirs in your heart, why not get involved?
