SPARK Stands for Starting Point Adventure Ready Kids and is all about fun, friendship, family values, and faith. SPARK meets on Sunday mornings at Tansley Woods Community Centre from 10:30am-11:45am. A typical SPARK morning looks like this.
10:15AM Check In/Registration
At the registration table, kids will be assigned to a team based on age group. We have separate programs for nursery aged kids (called SPARK Nursery for birth through 4 years old. SPARK Nursery meets in the preschool room), as well as Junior High (called Fuel for students in Grades 5-7. Fuel meets in the Holland Room), but all three programs register at our Registration/Check-In table. SPARK Kids (SK-Grade 4) can then head into the Teens/Seniors room at Tansley Woods. Parents are encouraged to enjoy the main service at Starting Point. We have fresh Tim Horton’s coffee, timbits, donuts, and muffins available for free at the back of the main room. Live music kicks off the service, then a funny video or movie clip that introduces the topic of the day, then a practical and inspiring message about life issues that everyone can relate to. Our service is designed for a diverse audience…so whether exploring faith is your thing…or even if it’s not…you can plan on hearing a message that fully engages your attention and applies to everyday life.
10:15 AM-10:35 AM
Kids can enjoy the following stations before the program begins. Each station has SPARK high school and adult leaders to make sure each child feels at home and is enjoying themselves before the program begins.
