Children's MINISTRY

Developing a Relationship with Jesus

The goal of our Children's Ministry is to bring our youngest members from the community into a relationship with Jesus. We believe children have the capacity to walk intimately with God and we help guide them through practical skills learning, Bible stories, songs and crafts.

Contact our church office at 705-743-4904 (Tuesday-Friday, 8 am-noon), for more information about the programs below.

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

    Kids are invited to a series of free cooking classes at Cephas Church. Each week they learn to prepare a healthy meal and enjoy eating supper together. Additionally, they play games, have a Bible lesson and do crafts. These Friday afternoon classes run from 3:30 - 6:00 pm, and are overseen jointly with Youth Unlimited.
