Children ages 4-grade 8 are welcome to join us for a time of exploring, games, story, and crafts as we discover what it means to be part of a community of living faith. Appropriate activities, skilled teachers and a reformed curriculum are part of each Sunday morning. Sunday school takes place in the Great Hall, located on the main floor of the education wing.
Welcome little ones! Care is available for babes in arms to 3 year olds throughout worship; a place to crawl, a place to learn, and a place to grow is provided on the 2nd floor above the Great Hall. Rosedale strives to provide exemplary nursery care for our youngest among us and a foundation for early faith development. Parents are welcome to join their child(ren) in the nursery, or return at the end of worship.
*NB: Toys and surfaces are disinfected regularly, and hand-washing is encouraged prior to entering the nursery area. A change table is available outside of the office, and diapers available in the nursery.
Rosedale youth play an active role in the life and witness of the church and community. Youth participate in food drives, the mission at Evangel Hall, annual Rosedale gala dinner, worship, Sunday school and nursery support, etc. Through conversation, youth provide ideas for other activities and opportunities to explore their faith in meaningful ways through discussion and action.
