Welcome to the 2010-2011 Sunday School year! Your children are precious to God and to us. Our many volunteers work hard to provide a loving, vibrant atmosphere where kids are excited about growing in their relationships with God and each other. Below is a list of the Children’s Ministries that we offer throughout the year. We are excited to see what this year is going to bring.
We provide Nursery, Sunday School and Jr. Church every Sunday from September to May using Anabaptist curriculum.
The nursery is available during the church service for infants to age 2. Please remember to use the sign in and sign out sheets in the nursery. Children will be released from the nursery only to a parent or a known, prescribed caregiver.
Sunday School is available for children age 2 to Adult. Due to our Safe Church Policy, parents are to pick up their children age 2 to Grade 1 from Sunday School and Jr. Church.
Jr. Church is for children age 2 to Grade 2 during the church service from September to May.

A mentoring relationship is an intentional one-on-one intergenerational relationship that seeks to compliment the youth peer group setting. All youth from grade 7 through high school are invited to choose an adult from the congregation as their mentor. The adult-youth pair will meet monthly and will also meet together with the pairs periodically for social events, times of reflections and other activities.
Jr. Youth is for children in Grades 6-8. They are invited to participate in bi-weekly functions from September to June with special activities in July and August. Jr. Youth activities include worship, Bible studies, activities, food, service projects and outreaches that encourage discipleship, mentoring and spiritual growth.
Mennonite Youth Fellowship (MYF)
Youth in high school get together bi-weekly for Bible Studies and have MYF functions that include worship, activities, food, service projects and outreaches that encourage discipleship, mentoring and spiritual growth. Our MYF is also involved in Bible Quizzing which provides youth with an opportunity to do in-depth Bible Study in a fun environment. Teams of four to six youth test their knowledge against other youth teams in Mennonite Church Eastern Canada. It also provides an excellent opportunity to meet old and new friends from other congregations.
Children’s Library - Be sure to check out our library which loans quality books, videos and DVDs with a faith-based message for all children.
Moms and Tots – Join Moms and Tots every Tuesday morning from in the nursery for a social get together. Come and go as you wish.
Children are encouraged to use the gym after the church service. Parents are responsible for their own children.
We are committed to creating a fun and safe environment. We take all necessary precautions to ensure your children’s well-being. All of our volunteers are screened according to our Safe Church Policy.
Also due to severe allergies please help us to provide a scent & peanut-free environment.
Here at LMC we encourage every child to attend a Mennonite Church Camp. To actively promote this, we provide a one-time subsidy of $200.00 per child to attend a Mennonite camp.
