Children are always welcome in church. Sitting closer to the front helps children see what’s going on and be more engaged. As they become able, encourage them to stand and sit when you do – you are teaching them worship behavior. As they begin to read, point out words in the bulletin and in the hymns – you are teaching them how to read and how to follow music. Help them fold their hands and bow their heads during prayer and recite the prayers they know, like the Lord’s Prayer – you are teaching them how to talk to God through prayer.
Many Sundays, we have a children’s time in worship before the lessons are read. Children & Youth are encouraged to come to the front and hear a message just for them that relates to the lessons for the day. Feel free to go up with them if that makes them more comfortable.
We provide Children’s Worship Bags in a basket at both entries to the Sanctuary. You’ll find a variety of materials to keep little hands busy as children learn & grow alongside our adult church members.
Our Nursery is available from 8:15 AM – 11:45 AM for children through age 4 during the Sunday school hour and worship service. Children older than 4 years are encouraged to attend their Sunday school classes.
