Children’s Worship is a time for children to encounter, experience, and worship God in an age-appropriate manner. The children learn together how to worship and adore God. Children’s Worship emulates elements of ‘big church’ so that the children will be prepared over time to join the greater community of believers in meaningful worship.
Who attends Children’s Worship?
After joining the congregation for a time of praise and a special moment just for them, children four-years-old through 1st grade are dismissed by song and banner processional to their classroom. Children’s Worship is staffed by a teacher, a youth assistant and parent volunteer each week.
What happens in Children’s Worship?
The elements of worship for the Children’s Worship service are:
A few important things to know:
American Sign Language is a common practice for many songs and Bible verses in the Children’s Worship Center. The use of ‘motion’ and hand movements enhances praise.
All children will remain in their classroom downstairs until a parent arrives and assumes responsibility. Please do not send older siblings to pick up your child from Children’s Worship.
If congregational worship finishes early, parents are asked to wait until Children’s Worship ends at 11:15 AM before picking up their children.
All parents are welcome anytime to visit and observe worship.
A graduation service will transition children from Children’s Worship into ‘big church’ after they have finished their 1st grade school year.
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
