​As a ministry of Harvest Church, Harvest Kids Ministry aims to create a safe environment for children to learn about Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the Kingdom. Our goal is to raise up a generation of children who worship the Father, are confident in their identity in Christ, and move in the power of the Spirit and the supernatural.

Our Ministry offers nursery services, in addition to children’s ministry for children 3-7 and 8-12. Should parents and nursing mothers wish to supervise children under 2 years in the toddler's room, they can enjoy watching the service live on the big screen provided.

Our Ministry is always looking for help and support, either with teaching, nursery, or simply offering a helping hand. All volunteers are subject to a criminal record check.

Please contact for more information.


Lauren MacNaughton 

Kids Ministry Overseer 

I grew up in Prince Edward Island, Canada, and moved to British Columbia in 2016. After spending several years in Bella Coola, I moved to Kelowna in 2018. I am grateful to call this city and Kelowna Harvest Church my home. 


My heart and passion is to see children raised up in the love of Christ and learn to walk in supernatural power through his Holy Spirit. I have several years experience working with children and youth – including acting as a Sunday school teacher, child care provider, social worker, and general “lover of kiddos”. 

A delightful book with colorful illustrations, poetic humor, enlightening scenarios and an adorable baby elephant named ELPHA.

ELPHA Happy To Be Me, finds ELPHA dreaming to be a butterfly. ELPHA invites children into her world of dreams, instilling in them their God-given identity, purpose and value, through the lessons she learns. ELPHA Happy To Be Me, is the first of a series of ELPHA books with each one addressing different real-life issues that children may find themselves facing in today's society.
