Metropolitan United welcomes people of all ages, children, youth, and their families. Children are welcome participants at the heart of our congregation, bringing ideas and unique talents that can inspire the whole church.
Church School is a time-honoured tradition at Metropolitan United, offered from September to June. The program is open to children aged three and older. Children are invited to attend the first part of our 11:00 a.m. Sunday service with their parents. About 15 minutes into the service, the entire congregation shares in a special children's time called "Encountering the Child Within," which includes a carefully crafted lesson related to a scripture reading from that morning. The children then leave for Church School in the newly renovated Metropolitan Centre.
The goal is to allow children to engage in faith through all their senses. This includes storytelling, tackling cyber challenges, or creating artwork. Children also might taste the culinary wonders of our resident Chef (who is part of the team at the Rose Water Supper Club) or be dazzled by the brilliance of our resident magician.
