Sunday School Registration

Walton United Church Council has paused live services at this time due to COVID-19 concerns.

With sadness but a desire to protect everyone, we announce that Walton United Church will be pausing all live worship services effective immediately, including those planned for Christmas Eve. In light of the exponential growth in COVID-19 cases and associated risks, this Council decision is a necessary step to protect the congregation and the communities we serve. Walton’s will re-evaluate the option of in-person services in January.

Please see our COVID-19 response page for more details.

We’re going back to school! Sunday School, that is…

At its meeting on November 9, 2021, the Walton Church Council approved a motion allowing Sunday School to resume in person. From November 21, 2021 through January 31, 2022, the following temporary procedures will be implemented:

• Sunday School to be offered at the 9:30am service only, beginning on Sunday, November 21, 2021.
All grades from JK to Grade 8 will gather in Bronte Hall and will be separated into small groups by age.
• Parents/guardians will drop off children outside the exterior doors to Bronte Hall, facing Lakeshore Road, and then proceed to the tower door to enter the Sanctuary for the 9:30 service. Pick up is at the same location.
• No parents/guardians are permitted in Bronte Hall or the foyer.
• Sunday School activities will include age-appropriate music, games, crafts, and Bible study
• Virtual Sunday School lessons will continue to be sent weekly by email.

Please read carefully through Walton’s Covid-19 policies for Sunday School

• All teachers and volunteers must be fully vaccinated
• Children age 12 and up must present proof of full vaccination each week to attend in person
• Cloth or 3-layer paper masks (recommended) must be worn correctly, covering the nose and mouth, at all times indoors
• Physical distancing will be maintained
• Individual supplies will be provided to minimize contact between children
• Proof of Covid screening check must be presented at check-in each week
• Windows will be open and air purifiers with HEPA filtration will be in use for improved ventilation
• Bronte Hall and the sanctuary are on separate HVAC systems, with no co-mingling of air between rooms

As with our Sunday services, advance registration for Sunday School will be required each week. Registration will open at 9am on Mondays and close at 11:59pm on Thursdays. You can register online, by phoning or emailing the church office with your child’s name and grade.

Sunday School registration is now part of the registration for the 9:30am Service.
