We have held several successful PA Day Events over the past three years as a way for children to experience faith in an alternative format from Sunday School. Children spend the PA Day exploring a faith theme through open and closing sessions and six learning centres that involve crafts, Godly Play, story-time, music and baking. We accept any child, from JK to Gr 7, but pre-registration is necessary.
For each PA Day event, we have a dedicated team of adults who love working with children (usually 6-8 adults, including Rev Jean Stairs). The PA Day begins at 9:00 am (with early drop-off option by 8:30 am) and concludes at 3:00 pm (with late pick-up option by 3:30 pm). Children are asked to bring their own lunch and beverage but mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack and juice are provided.
There is a modest registration fee to assist with craft and refreshment expenses.
Previous themes have included: Exploring Advent and Exploring Epiphany: Light, Love and Laughter.
The next PA Day Event is Thursday, Feb. 4th. The theme is “The ABCs of Lent” through crafts, games, bible stories, singing, baking, chimes and more! Register on-line at www.ermuc.ca or call Church Office 613-389-2530; or email firstname.lastname@example.org Registration deadline is Feb. 1, 2016.
