Howdy and Welcome!

Get ready for discovery, for fun and a whole new way of experiencing Church!  The Discovery Zone is the kid’s world at Barrie Free Methodist Church.

The mission of the children’s ministry at Barrie Free Methodist Church is to “Teach children to know, love and follow Jesus.”
We would love for your kids to be a part of our journey through discovery.

Discovery Zone Sundays

The Discovery Zone is kid’s church on Sunday mornings!  Each week, children age 3 to grade 6 have the chance to come together and set off on their journey of discovery.  All kids start out in the service with their families, and then move to the children’s area for their own special time together.  In the zone the children enjoy music, crafts and activities that help them learn about God and the Bible, in both large group activities and small group discussions.

Our Sunday School curriculum is by…

Orange is a gathering of leaders who are passionate about engaging churches and families to influence the faith and character of the next generation.

Our team consists of educators, producers, musicians, pastors, artists, designers, writers, editors, parents, doers, thinkers, and dreamers. And we all want to join your team to help you create a better experience this week for kids and teenagers.

Nursery and Toddler

We haven’t forgotten our littlest ones!  A loving and safe nursery (birth to age 2) is available during the service as well.  Parents can drop off their babies/toddlers before heading into the service.

Drop Off, Pick Up & Safety

On Sundays in the Zone, children age 3 to grade 3 must be checked in at the children’s desk by an adult, and are picked up in their classrooms after the service:  ages 3 – 5 in room 109, and grades 1 – 3 in room 113.  For our weekly programs, children must be signed in by an adult with contact info left on hand in case a parent/guardian needs to be reached.  We are blessed to be part of a thriving church in a growing community!  With that in mind, please remind your children to apply the usual safety awareness tips that you have taught them to use in every other setting.
