Children's Ministries Sunday Activities
The children's church program is a graduated experience of learning which has the goal of helping children understand worship and participation in church life in age-appropriate forms. This year we have included an activities component every other week to our program. It is our hope that we will minister to the unique needs of children by increasing their opportunities to be active as we continue to seek to teach them about worship.
Most often, our Children's Ministires program dovetails the studies of the larger church body. Our intention is to unify the church, enable parents to more easily utilize Sunday school curriculum in their homes and enjoy a sense of church family life. For details about current curriculum, please feel free to email Tricia Popp.
Children in the Larger Worship Service
Our goal is to more meaningfully integrate the members of our church family in a number of ways. As such, a few Sundays each year, our elementary children join us in the larger adult worship service to learn, experience family worship, and to witness the faith of the adults in our body. As a staff, we strive to collaborate in the planning of the adult services with children and youth in mind.
Some Sundays, the elementary children to stay in church a bit longer before going to Sunday School and it is possible that they will be participants in the entire service more often. We are committed to being the body of Christ and allowing ourselves to be shaped by His Spirit in each of us, including the youngest members of our church. In addition, we want also to support parents as they are being shaped and changed through their season of home and family life. Our prayer is that our corporate worship time will support that.
If parents would like resources, ideas or help in planning for their children to be in the adult service, please feel free to contact Tricia Popp.
