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.
