At the kids Absolutely Awesome Adventure Centre everyone is welcome. Kids who are nursery age have their own play room, and kids who are 4 – 12 years old meet together every Sunday and experience a rotation of centers where they learn and get first hand experience about issues of faith. Older kids have their active teens group and they hold different leadership responsibilities around the church.
At St. Columba we value innovation and creativity. We moved away from the old model of church school to a new method of learning which enhances the Kids multiple intelligences and meets their different needs. Every Sunday, kids gather in a colorful tent for worship and story time. Later, they move on to different centers such as drama, arts, science, movies, kitchen, and other activities that enable them to experience the biblical story from different angles. They also have lots of special activity Sundays where they prepare for celebrations around the church year such as Christmas and Easter.
In the past we have hosted summer camps, put on skits and plays and other activities which are exciting and engaging activities for kids. It is a program we hope to continue and grow. Currently, the Absolutely Awesome Adventure Centre is in transition as we are seeking a new Kid’s Animator to help us develop activities for kids to learn and grow in faith and also make lasting friendships. If you, or someone you know, might be interested in taking on this role, please contact us for more information.
