Child and Family Programming

Melrose Family Ministries


Hello Melrose Families, 

Summer has arrived! For many of you, this will mean the end of another busy school year and getting ready for the next few months of fun. It has been an absolute joy getting to know each of you and your amazing kids. I look forward to continuing to walk alongside them as they grow in faith! 

I wanted to take the opportunity to provide a few quick Family Ministry updates: 

As of this Sunday, there will be no formal Sunday School programming until September. Children of all ages are still welcome to join the service in the Summer season. I will have a Kids Corner set-up in the Chapel where activity kits, books, and toys will be available. 

We are hoping to do a Summer Talent Show/Coffee House at Melrose. If your kids would be interested in sharing their talents, please send me an email with some dates you are free. I will try to accommodate everyone's busy Summer schedules! 

This Summer we will also be launching Outdoor Movies at Melrose. Bring your whole gang and join us for a movie under the stars! Snacks will also be available for purchase. Stay tuned for more info! 

Be sure to check your email and our facebook page for more updates.

Wishing you all an amazing Summer, and I hope to see you soon!


Who We Are

We are an enthusiastic and vibrant group of children and adults who learn about living together in God's world.

What We Offer

Melrose United Church offers a safe and welcoming environment where Children of all ages can learn and grown together. We believe in having the children participate in many parts of church life and worship, so we try to have the children present during communion, baptisms and other important events.

Sunday School - Children of all ages are invited to participate in Sunday School during the Sunday morning service. We will share in teachings from the bible as well as provide some fun interactive learning activities to help nurture their faith

TGIF - Occurring the approximately 6 times per year, TGIF (thank God it's Friday) is an opportunity for children and families to connect through the week. The evening includes a potluck dinner, fellowship and some seasonal activities and games for the kids.

Special Events - Melrose United Church offers a variety of special events throughout the year that allows children and families of all ages to connect and share in fun and fellowship.


Where We Meet

Children are invited to go directly to the Kid's Corner in the Sanctuary at the start of the service.  Midway through the service the children are invited to hear a special lesson at the front of the sanctuary. Afterwards, they will go to the auditorium for Sunday School. Those with infants are welcome to use the Church Nursery.
