Children's MINISTRY

Developing a Relationship with Jesus

The goal of our Children's Ministry is guiding our youngest members and children from the community, into a relationship with Jesus. We believe our children have the capacity to walk intimately with God, and we love to see them learn about Him through Bible stories, songs, and crafts.

We invite your children to join us! Contact our church office at 705-743-4904 for more information.

  • Nursery for Infants on Sunday

    Caring volunteers oversee infants in the nursery downstairs. We have a paging system in place and should a caregiver be needed during the service, the child's assigned number will flash on the small screen at the front of the sanctuary. After each Sunday's use, the nursery receives a careful cleaning.

    Please inquire with a greeter about the nursery when you arrive at church. 

  • Toddlers and Young Children

    Volunteers supervise toddlers and young children during the Sunday service in our kid-friendly space at the back of the sanctuary. Children up to age 6 are welcome, You may sit with your child in this area throughout the service if you wish. After each Sunday's use, the kid-friendly space receives a careful cleaning.

    Please inquire with a greeter about the kid-friendly space when you arrive at church.

  • Boys Club (Ages 7-13)

    Our boys club, known as Cadets, is a ministry that shares Christ's love with boys. Speakers, Bible study, badge-work, hands-on projects and outdoor adventure, encourage boys to grow socially, mentally, physically and spiritually.

    Cadets meet on Wednesday evenings at Cephas Church from 6:30-8:00 pm. during the regular season. This program is run jointly with Living Hope Church.

    Cadets will resume in September 2023. Check this page in August for the start date. 

  • Kids Cooking Classes (Boys & Girls Ages 8-13+)

    Kids from the neighbourhood participate in a series of cooking classes at Cephas Church. They learn to cook healthy meals and enjoy eating what they prepare. They also play games and participate in a devotional time about how God loves and cares for us. This is a joint program between Cephas and the Kawartha Chapter of Youth Unlimited.

Our Volunteers

Our volunteers acknowledge that children are a gift from God (Psalm 137:3), and have chosen to spend their Sunday morning with them. They are committed to making the ministry a safe, Biblically relevant, and fun environment for your kids.

All volunteers understand our children's ministry guidelines, agree with the vision and mission of Cephas Church, and have a current background check.
