At Open Gate, KidZone is our children’s ministry. KidZone happens every Sunday Morning during our 10:15 service. After the opening song, there is a children’s focus during the service and then the program begins. The kid’s later rejoin the service in time for communion together.
The kids gather in three different age appropriate learning/play environments. In each of these programs, it is our desire to teach them about God’s good plan and desire for their lives, demonstrate to them His great love, and share with them the Good News (gospel) of Jesus Christ! We strive to do all this in FUN and creative ways.
We also have an infant and toddler friendly space and a room at the back of our church designated with a play mat, toys, and small chairs set up to help our most little ones (and their parents) have a space to move about.
KidZone “Littles” Group: Ages 3 – 5 years
KidZone “Juniors” Group: Grades 1 – 6

For the next 2 years we will be teaching from the ‘God’s Big Story’ curriculum: A gospel driven, Christ-centered children’s curriculum. Our KidZone leadership team is very excited to teach this curriculum. God’s Big Story was put together by a team in Vancouver BC. Click here to find out more about this curriculum
Open Gate abides by a program called Plan to Protect. We do this to ensure every aspect of our church life (including our children’s programs) are equipped with policies, procedures, and training to keep our community a safe one.
