Tender Hearts is the name of the childcare available during Heart to Heart, a women's group that meets every Wednesday morning.
Registration is required. There is a small fee of $10 per child to cover snack costs for the semester.

To help with childcare until enough weekly volunteers are found, women will be stepping into class 1-2 times per semester.
This is a great opportunity to bless the other mother's of Heart to Heart and to spend time with God's children, helping them grown and learn.

In Grade 5-6, we believe that the best version of life is a life modelled after Jesus. Live life together in a caring and safe environment where you can be challenged in your faith,
encouraged to live a life committed to God and have fun with friends in the process.

FAMILY PRAYER MATERIALS

Enjoy the materials below with your family!

PRAYING AT HOME

Need some ideas for praying with your kids?
Here is a great starting point with three simple ideas:

pause and pray at meal times

Pausing to pray before meals is a great way to bring the family together
around the table.  
Being thankful creates a happy heart and modeling this thankfulness
at mealtime promotes joy!

pause and pray when you wash your hands

We are washing our hands a lot today.  As you are washing, it’s easy to let your mind wander aimlessly.  In order to harness that minute of thought, ask the Lord for forgiveness and cleansing while the water runs over your hands.  Associating the acts of forgiveness and cleansing with hand-washing time is a beautiful picture of God’s grace that children can easily remember.

pause and pray when you need help

Is homework or doing school at home in a new way causing extra frustration?  
Stopping to pray invites the Lord into the struggle and provides strength to continue trying. Perhaps your child is struggling with a friend issue or your family is experiencing a financial need.  To ask the Lord for help whenever we need it is a great way to teach your child to rely on Him for all needs.
Lose an item in your house?  
Ask God to help you find the item.
