Kids in Church
All are welcome to worship with us, and that includes children of all ages!
To parents wanting to bring their children to worship, may we suggest:
Sit toward the front, so the kids can see what is going on.
Quietly explain the parts of the service and the actions of the ministers, elders, choir, etc.
Sing the hymns, pray, and voice the responses. Children learn worship behavior by copying you.
If you have to leave the service with your child for some reason, feel free to do so, but please come back. As Jesus said, “Let the children come to me.”
We have activities for children for during the worship service! Just ask one of the deacons who welcomed you if they have not already given you the activity sheets.
A reminder to our other adults members and visitors in worship:
The presence of children is a gift to the Church and a reminder that all are welcome to worship.
Welcome those children among us and give a smile of encouragement to their parents.
The way we welcome children in church directly affects the way they respond to church, to God, and to one another. Let them know that they are at home in this house of worship.
