Sundays @ The Fort
Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30
Nursery – Room E117: Nursery for children under 2
Kingdom Kids – Room E107 (suggested ages 3-5): Children will play, hear Bible stories, sing songs, and do crafts and activities as they study scripture and build relationships with one another.
Scripture Squires – Room E209 (suggested grades 1st-2nd): Wonders of Worship is an opportunity for your child to learn about how and why we “celebrate” worship at Fort Hill. It is a time where they will learn to understand the bulletin, and how to be a participant in worship not just an observer. Our hope is that when they complete WOW and enter worship full time that they will be able to actively engage in the worship of God.
Knights of Christ – Room E208 (suggested grades 3rd-5th): Students will read and discuss scripture while doing activities that allow them to explore the Word and build their relationship with God.

Children’s Music Ministry
Choirs for Grades K-5 are offered on Wednesday evenings from September-April. Strong Praises for Grades K-2 meet from 6:30-7:00 and Singers for Christ for Grades 3-5 meet from 6:00-6:30. They are introduced to various music techniques, learn hymns, anthems, and fun songs. The Singers of Christ also learn ringing techniques with choir chimes.
Opportunities to lead and sing in worship are provided four or more times during the year, along with the Angel Vespers program at Christmas, and a musical drama every other year.
Parents are also asked to be involved as choir parents assisting in rehearsals and encouraging all children to participate and share their gifts in praising God and leading in worship.
Margaret MacKay, Director of Music, directs these groups. Please contact Margaret MacKay for more information.
