Children and Worship

Starts September 10

Ages 3 - K, 08:30 Service | Sept - June
Ages 4 - K, 11:00 Service | Sept - June

Mid-way through our morning worship, our children ages three through Kindergarten are dismissed for Children and Worship. Children and Worship presents a joyful way for young children to worship God. It invites both children and adults to experience the wonder and mystery of God through a unique storytelling format. Children and Worship creates a special place where children can come to encounter God, to be still with God, and to listen to God.

How can I Worship / serve?

  • Children and Worship leaders guide our young children as they learn to worship God through songs, stories and familiar routines. Each week a story and wooden story pieces are provided for the leaders to teach a Bible story to the children. Leaders work to memorize the story before they come so that they can tell the story in a meaningful way to the children.
  • Adult greeters provide a comforting and welcoming presence for the children as they arrive and assist the leader as needed.
  • Youth helpers are a great asset to this program. Helpers sit with the children, serve snacks, and spend time interacting.
