Welcome to Family, Children and Youth Ministries at Norval UC! During this time of social distancing we are doing what we can to stay connected. We hope that you find resources and opportunities here to connect, explore and grow in faith with us! 

Kids Church in-person! We are starting a parallel “Kids Church” on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. “Kids Church” will be in the Playroom @ NUC (classroom immediate to the left of the front doors). Please sign your children in when you arrive. Parents are welcome to stay with their kids or to go into our regular worship space after drop off.  You can pick up your children on your way out of the building

Faith@Home: A weekly e-newsletter with resources for the whole family is available by request. Email Jen Auger to be added to our subscription list. 

Kids & Youth Choir: Join Deb Hopper on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. to sing and have fun! All ages welcome, no skill or experience necessary. Rehearsals follow all health guidelines. 

Facebook Groups: Join our NUC Kids Church or our Online Youth Group Facebook groups for access to resources, ideas, and an opportunity to share how you are spending this time with others!

Kids Church Resource Page: We have set up a password protected page for access to family resources, downloads and our photo gallery. If you would like access to this material, please email Jen for the key.

Family Events

Providing space to be family together is important to us. Family to us includes parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbours and friends! When we connect together across generations we strengthen the support systems around our children and youth.
