At St. Luke Cedar Hill, every member of your family is an essential part of our community. A Sunday School program is offered at the 10:30 am service during the school year. A Prayground is available in the church over the summer and is also available for children who wish to stay in church instead of going to Sunday School or for the children to go to before and after Sunday School.
To serve young families, a Nursery Room is available downstairs in the church building during the services.
Preschool and Elementary aged children begin the service with their families in church. After the Prayer for the Sunday School, they move to the church hall for Sunday School where our team of committed, creative teachers and mentors have prepared a variety of activities. Our curriculum follows the Revised Common Lectionary, the schedule of Bible readings heard in church each week, so the teaching your children receive will parallel your experience in church. All of the young people return to their parents before Communion so that you can go to the Communion table as a family. Kids who come without their parents stay with the Sunday School teachers or a family of their choice. All who are baptized are welcome to receive communion and those who are not baptized are invited to come and receive a blessing.
Other programs for children and youth include Fantastic Fridays, which are held on the first Friday of the month, 4:30 - 6:30 pm from October through to June. Fantastic Fridays are held in the hall. They are free and dinner is provided. Something new for every age: intriguing games, art to try, theatre fun, and more. We do woodworking at some Fantastic Fridays which is always popular. Pictures of several Fantastic Fridays are posted on the News page. See pictures from the March 2018 Fantastic Friday, the May 2018 Fantastic Friday, and the February 2019 Fantastic Friday.
The Amazing Journey Day Camp is held for a week in the summer. This camp, sponsored by Lutheran Church of the Cross, St. George's Anglican Church, and St. Luke's Anglican Church, is for preschool and elementary aged children. Middle and high school students can volunteer in various roles at the camp to gain valuable experience for a resume or volunteer hours to satisfy BC high school graduation requirements.
