Safety and Security

You are trusting us with your most precious treasures and we want to do everything we can to keep children safe and secure while with us. We follow the Plan to Protect protocols to create the safest environment and this includes screening volunteers, police checks and ongoing training.

An Automated Check-In system helps keep traffic moving during our busy times just before and after services and programs, all the while, keeping all the children safe and accounted for while in our care.

BLAST Groups


Our Children's Ministries are categorized by age so we can provide an area that is designed and created for their level of curiosity and exploration.

BLAST Nursery - for babies and toddlers from birth to 23 months. We offer attentive volunteers with welcoming arms who help little ones feel comfortable and loved at church.

BLAST Twos and Threes - this is a busy area with lots to explore and where the beginnings of church and Christian Education are introduced with lessons, activities and music that meet them right where they are in their development.

BLAST Primary - children move into this group on their fourth birthday or when they start Junior Kindergarten (whichever comes first) through to the end of Grade 1. Expressive worship, engaging Bible story teachings and hands on activities that allow them move, explore and discover all help spark interest in God's Word.

BLAST Elementary - spanning grades 2 to 5, our Elementary group digs in a bit deeper and is filled with object lessons, thought-provoking teachings to help children understand essential Christian doctrines and read Scripture as Christ-centred.

Missions

As an integral part of Cedarview's DNA, we focus on Missions in our Children's Programs so children come to understand that they may be young but they can still make a big impact for God and His Kingdom.

Curriculum


We are a teaching church and our Children's Ministries are no exception.

"Train them up in the way they should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

The Gospel Project

We use The Gospel Project for our morning Church service and continue the lessons through our Christian Education time to help reinforce the teaching. We use a variety of methods and media to help children learn Biblical truths because we know not every child learns the same way. Lots of hands-on learning and object lessons help bring God's Word alive each Sunday.

Each group uses age-appropriate versions of The Gospel Project so the lessons, examples and activities are at a child's developmental stage and comprehension.

Take-home activity sheets for each age group recaps the lesson, key Scripture verse and offers Family Discussion Questions and Suggested Family Activities that assist parents in continuing the teachings at home.

This is a three-year chronological Bible study that takes children on the journey of how the Gospel unfolds from Genesis to Revelation.

Explore The Bible

This Bible study is a three year plan too but the journey is done by studying the Books of the Bible. Like The Gospel Project, the teachings are age-specific and many activities offered to help children understand the context of the original writings and helps children learn to walk out their faith.

Take-home activity sheets are available for this Bible study as well and offers parents and children the opportunity to continuing digging in to the week's lesson.

Dare To Be A Daniel

Our Grade 5 Christian Education class works through the Dare To Be A Daniel Bible study that offers practical principals of faith and Scripture verses to help equip them to share their faith with their family and friends.

Small Group Bible Studies

In our evening service, Grades 4 and 5 children work through small group Bible studies that focus on a particular topic or theme ranging from Unseen - a study of the Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer, to The Quest by Beth Moore that challenges children to grow closer to God.
