Child & Youth Ministry

Erskine is alive with the sounds of children! We believe that Christian Education is an intergenerational endeavour which should be experienced as a Church Family. Erskine is currently using curriculum being developed by our friends at the Family Church of Heritage Green. Our “Family Story Time” features a new member of our congregation—God Bot! Family Story Time begins with a song. Then there is a game to unlock Godbot’s theme. Children and adults alike play along with the game. Then comes the Big God Theme for the day. Godbot usually has something hidden inside him for the kids to think about. Then we watch a video together as a family.  The videos lead us through the Big God Story every year – from Genesis to Revelation. The family story time ends with the children going into Sunday School and the adults hearing the Message.

We currently have two Sunday School classes and a Nursery which welcome up to 15 children from ages 1-16. Our Junior Class welcomes children from JK-Grade 4 and includes crafts and activities to explore the theme of the week. Our Senior Class includes children from Grade 5-8. Our older children like to undertake projects such as development of skits, or book studies.
