Children and Worship

Children and Worship

Children and Worship is not about worship, it IS worship! In this Montessori-based program, children experience
worshiping God in the same form that adult worship follows, but in ways that are designed for them! They will
“gather as God’s people,” “hear the Word proclaimed,” “respond to the Word” and “be sent out into the world.”
Through song, sign, stories, art, children will encounter the stories of the Bible not as “lessons” (which is the focus
of Sunday School), but as the Word of God to them. All children ages 4 years old through 3 rd grade are welcome to
our Children and Worship program.

The children will come down the aisle to the front of the sanctuary as they pass the peace with their church family.
After we have wished each other “the peace of Christ,” we will dismiss them with a blessing to Children and
Worship with their shepherd.

Children and Worship Service runs parrallel to the traditional service in the Sanctuary. Afterwards, children are directed to Sunday School or can be picked up at Worship Center on the basement floor.
