And to those who have no might He increases strength.

Isaiah 40:29

Online Program for Our Children (3/21/2020)

We pray that you are all doing well and safe with the current situation.

Due to these difficult times we are all living in, God willing, the church is organizing a daily online program for our kids and teens to keep them attached to the church while all the services and activities are suspended.

This program will use the Google Classroom web application, available online for free to everyone. Some of you may already be familiar with this application as many schools use it with for online courses and assignments.

To join our Google Classroom:

  • Visit classroom.google.com and login with your Google account (or create a new account).
  • Send us your Gmail address to: OttawaCopticChurches@gmail.com

The online program will include the following:

  • Daily Verse
  • Bible reading
  • Quizzes
  • Videos
  • Education fun time
  • List of family movies
  • List of crafts and family games
  • Online Kahoot
  • Weekly online Sunday School Conference with the kids

We would still like to meet with the kids and have short Sunday School time to talk about God, pray, have discussions, check on all the kids and give them a chance to meet all together.  We will be trialling an online conference video call that the kids can join and attend Sunday School online (your Sunday School servant will contact you).

We encourage everyone to get their kids engaged in this program and to join the Sunday meeting online, as it will be very beneficial for all of us to meet, pray and stay united in Christ.
