It is a delight to have more children in worship. We are continuing to consider how we might be best in ministry for our children and families. We want to provide the best Christian education for them we can while working with family schedules. After meeting with a few of our families we are creating Sunday morning time for children.
Children are into the sanctuary for the first part of worship and participate in the week’s Children’s Message. After that time, children ages 0-4 are invited to spend time in the nursery, while children in grades K-5 will be invited to attend Children’s Church. Kids will be escorted back into the sanctuary during the offering time so they can sing the final hymn of worship with the congregation.
On the first Sunday of the month, kids will be invited back before Communion so families can decide if they would like to participate. There will be other Sundays when during the “Moment of Witness” that we will hear from a child about what they learned that day.
