Church For Kids!

Important Update:
The Open Gate’s KidZone children’s ministry will be moving forward ONLINE starting Sunday, March 22, until further notice due to COVID-19 and doing our part to social distance and flatten the curve.

KidZone is our children’s ministry program at The Open Gate Church.  On a normal Sunday gathering, the KidZone meets during our 10:15 AM service.  After an opening song, the children are invited up to the front for a “Children’s Focus” message from our Pastor. After the message, they are dismissed to KidZone and later rejoin the service in time for Holy Communion.

KidZone has four different age groups so the children can gather in more appropriate learning/play environments:

          KidZone “Minis” – Ages 3 and under
          KidZone “Littles” – Ages 3 – 5
          KidZone “Juniors” – Grade 1 – Grade 6
          KidZone “Youths” – Grade 7 – Grade 12

In each of these classes, it is The Open Gate’s desire to teach the children about God’s good plan and desire for their lives.  KidZone follow’s the curriculum from “God’s Big Story” -Anglican Network in Canada.  This is a Gospel-driven and Christ centered program that was put together by a team from Vancouver, BC.  Our KidZone ministry team works hard to try and share the Good News of God’s love to the children in FUN and creative ways.
