We’re glad you’re here! At Niagara UM, our intentions are simple: we want our children to experience the light and love of God through the relationships they foster with fellow kids and leaders alike!
Who's invited to Red Brick Kids (RBK)?
All kids from newborn through Grade 5!
When does RBK gather?
Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:30am
What can I expect on a Sunday Morning?
9:15 - 9:35am Sign in and free play in the gym
From baby mats to ride-on toys and obstacle courses, there’s something for kids of all ages. This time is a real highlight for our kids - some say it’s the best part of their week!
9:40-10:00am Large Group
All kids and leaders gather together to sing, share, and grow together.
10:00-10:30am Small Groups
Kids gather in age groups with leaders for more focused activities and attention. We use stories, crafts, games, and songs to help our kids learn about the God who loves them so much!!
This is a great chance to connect with leaders and learn more about how your family can carry the learning into your homes in the week to come!
*All families are so very welcome to join the Sunday morning worship service which begins at 10:45am!*
What does children's ministry look like for really small infants and toddlers? Why provide programming to infants?
This is new for us! We’ve come to believe that a relationship with God starts right from birth and that it’s never too early for children to experience God’s love through caring relationships. Infants receive one-on-one care on Sunday mornings, and toddlers have a special program designed especially for them!
What training is provided to your volunteers?
Red Brick Kids uses Plan to Protect for abuse prevention and vulnerable sector protection. All our volunteers and staff must be screened and fully trained. You can learn more about Plan to Protect here.
What can I do while my child participates in RBK?
All adults are invited to join Pastor Chris for Coffee Huddle with Chris in the lounge on the second floor, on Sunday mornings from 9:40-10:30. You can learn more here!
What curriculum do you use?
We use the One Story curriculum put together by The Meeting House church. We align with the Anabaptist foundations and with their message and mission. You can learn more about One Story here.
I'd like to try out Red Brick Kids! Now what?
We can’t wait to see you! All children from birth through Grade 5 are welcome. Enter the glass doors on the south side of the building and go straight down the stairs. Our accessibility entrance is also located on the south side near the very front of the church building. Follow the ramp down and continue down the long hallway in the basement. You’ll hear us from there!
We always begin our mornings with free play in the gym from 9:15-9:35am. Please arrive in that window to complete a short registration form and connect with leaders.
