Children and Worship
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 are men and women who love young children and enjoy guiding them as they learn to worship God. Each week a story and wooden story pieces are provided for the leaders to teach a Bible story to the children. YouTube videos are available for most of the stories to guide you in preparing for your lesson. Each volunteer is asked to lead 4-5 times per year. Memorization of the story is not required.
Greeters and helpers (both adults and youth) provide a comforting and welcoming presence for the children as they arrive and assist the leader as needed while sitting with the children, taking attendance and interacting with the children during play time.
