At Prairie we value the inclusion of children of all ages. Children remain with their family during the open part of the worship service and experience the music, the prayers, and what it means to be fully part of the People of God. Most Sundays, children go to Children's Ministry prior to the message, and return for the end of worship, which includes the offering, more music, a closing blessing or benediction, and, once a month, communion. All our volunteers have been through a Leading with Care Orientation, adhering to the safety policies of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.
We encourage families to keep their littlest ones in the worship service in order to worship together. We recognize that, while ideal, being together in worship can often be a challenge, so we provide a nursery for children under 2. Parents can stay with their child or leave their child with the volunteers as they are comfortable.
