Glen Cairn United provides a Christian environment where children and youth are welcomed, heard, valued, nurtured and supported both personally and spiritually. Our Sunday School uses the “Seasons of the Spirit” curriculum. The children and youth study the same biblical texts and stories that are being used for congregational worship.
Usually children go into the sanctuary with their parents for the first part of the worship service. After a theme conversation with the minister or worship leader, the children go to the hall for a short Sunday School opening, including an offering. Then, the children go with their teachers to classes for stories, crafts and games. Currently, there are four classes for children and a class for youth.
On Sundays when there is communion, the children go immediately to the hall for their opening time followed by classes and then return to the sanctuary to join their parents for communion. Approximately five times during the year there are intergenerational church services where the children stay with their parents in the sanctuary for the entire service.
Sunday School runs from the first Sunday after Labour Day until the second Sunday of June. Special activities for children are provided from mid-June to Labour Day. Books and activity kits in baskets at the door of the sanctuary are available for children each week.

Leading youth to Grow in Christ as they live out the Great Commandment and apply the Great Commission in their daily lives. The goal is to love God and love people as we go and teach others to do the same. (Matthew 22:37-39; Matthew 28:18-20)
Youth meet with the following purposes in mind: social connections, sharing of experiences, service projects and Scripture study.
Some of the activities enjoyed by the youth group include attending Christian music concerts, playing games, discussing issues of interest to teens, holding car washes, volunteering in the community, going rock climbing, watching movies, playing Bible trivia games, leading worship services, and eating lots of pizza!
