Jr. Children and Worship

Starts September 10

Age 3, 11:00 Service | Sept - June

Mid-way through our morning worship, our children age three are dismissed for Jr. Children and Worship. Jr. Children and Worship presents a joyful way for our youngest children to worship God in a more relaxed environment. 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.

  • Children and Worship leaders guide our young children as they learn to worship God through songs, stories and familiar routines. Each week story pieces are provided for the leaders to teach a Bible story to the children. Leaders work to familiarize 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.
