Children's Activities - March 29, 2020

Guess who we are learning about this Sunday!

Some children’s worksheets and craft activities will be emailed out to our HBC families. If you do not receive this email, please email us at so we can put on you on the mailing list!

One of the crafts/activitis is this great one from so be sure to check your email!

If you are feeling brave, make a home video of your family re-enacting the story of Zacchaeus and send it to me... one of the videos will be incorporated into our mid-week recap.

Ministry Programs


 Kids' Church

Kids' Church is for children from Preschool (age 3) to Grade 6. Children get signed in downstairs in our Children's Ministry area 15 minutes before the main service starts, and are collected from the various classrooms.

We are currently working through the Gospel Project for Kids as our curriculum for both services. This is a fun time of stories, games, crafts and activities. We aim to engage the children at a level of their own understanding as we delve into God's Word! Please note that graduation to the next class happens in September of each year.

If you are interested in coming downstairs to see what happens in Children's Ministry, or if you are interested in serving in the Children's Ministry, please contact Leigh at or on 587-433-5657. We have many different opportunities in which you can get involved.


Our Nursery is located on the Main Floor, Room 208. It is a bright, welcoming space for all infants and toddlers (aged 0 - 35 months).

There is an area for nursing mothers in the Nursery, as well as a change table. We also have diaper changing facilities in both the Women's and Men's washrooms.

We encourage all children to participate in our Sunday programming. In the event you would like to keep your children in the service with you, we have reserved seating for families with small children at the back of our Sanctuary. We also have kids' activity sheets and crayons to keep them occupied available at the entrance of the Sanctuary, or ask one of our Ushers.

Our Children's Ministry Director

Hi, my name is Leigh Saunders and I am the Children's Ministry Director at Hawkwood Baptist Church. I was born in South Africa and came to Canada with my husband, Graeme, in 2011. Besides being a wife, I am also the mother of 3 wonderful children: Mackenzie, Owen and Daniel.

I am passionate about sharing Jesus with children in a fun and engaging way. Proverbs 22:6 says "Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it." Now is the time to ensure our children have a firm foundation!
