Children Sunday School

The Sunday School Program at ICRC offers classes for children. Through a variety of interactive activities, songs, and crafts, our teachers strive to help kids strengthen their faith and develop Christ-like character. We also encourage the growth of Bible knowledge through our weekly lessons and the memorization of Bible verses.

Our goal is to equip children with the tools that they need to develop a personal relationship with Jesus. Children Sunday School runs simultaneously with the adult worship services.

We welcome you to join us every Sunday at:

  • 10:15am-11:15am – ages 3-12 (during the Mandarin service)

  • 11:30am-12:30pm – ages 2-12 (during the English service)

Vacation Bible School

Every summer, the adults and teens of ICRC put their efforts together to transform the church into a Vacation Bible School for children. VBS is a 5-day event every year that is centred around a theme. It’s always amazing to see the helping hands coming together to create this environment and how excited children can be to learn more about God.

  • dancing and praising God through songs

  • listening to Bible lessons and trusting Jesus

  • getting wild and (sometimes) wet in games

  • connecting fun experiments or crafts to the Bible truths

  • eating together and taking pictures which will refresh memories with delight even 20 years after

Sharing and teaching God’s love is something we love to do at ICRC. So if your child is between the age of 3 to 12, we would love for them to have this opportunity to learn about God with us! Don’t miss the learning, friendship and fun that happens through VBS.

Kids Fall Carnival

On the last Sunday of October, ICRC holds a Kids Fall Carnival for children of all ages.
Everyone is welcome and it’s free of charge. Wearing their non-scary costumes, children are engaged in 2-4 hours of fun activities collecting sweets in their bags and stamps in their booklet. These stamps are then redeemed for prizes.

There are various game stations to choose from. There’s also craft/pumpkin painting, face painting, and toddlers play area, plus a food-for- sale station in case it’s time to take a break and re-energize. Parents sit around to enjoy the food and chat.
