Opportunities for Children and Youth
Below are some of the ministry opportunities that we are currently offering for children and youth in and through our work together as a congregation!
Kids P-6, Wednesdays at 6:15 - 7:30
A free program for kids in Primary through grade 6, Wednesdays from 6:15 - 7:30 (mid-Sept - mid-May). Held in the gym and Christian Education Centre, in the heart of downtown Kentville on the corner of Webster and Main Streets (503 Main St.)
At AC, kids enjoy snacks, games and activities, theme parties, music, and bible stories. We also have special events, field trips (we've gone to places like the fire station, police station or Kentville Arena for skating), and hands on projects to help others (such as our annual pumpkin sale in support of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, our bottle drive in support of bringing refugee family to Kentville, a community garbage clean up challenge, and other mission project challenges!), all ways AC makes a difference in our community.
Cancellation Policy Note: In the event of stormy weather, we try to send a cancellation email to the registered families. As well, watch for cancellation notice on CBC, AVR, local radio, etc.
AC Kids 2022 pumpkin art work - they did a great job helping and giving leadership to the sale to help eliminate hunger!
