Young Children & Worship

Young Children and Worship is a worship experience for young children and their parents during 8:30 and 11:00 worship services. It is located in Room CW-110 in the Children’s Ministry wing. Mickey Fitts and Deb O’Brien serve as worship leaders each week. Click here to register with your child!

Parents are asked to serve in Young Children and Worship one Sunday per month during 8:30 or 11:00 worship.  This is an opportunity for parents to learn some very practical ways of engaging children in worship.

Who We Are

We invite parents and their children (age 4, 5, 6 or in the Faith, Love and Grace groups) to participate on Sunday mornings. This ministry provides a transition from the Nursery to the full hour of worship in the Sanctuary.

We also ask parents to be servants in the Young Children and Worship ministry at least one Sunday per month. Parents will learn ways to guide their children in worship and meet their child’s church friends, too.

What We Do

We use an exciting way for children to experience God which uses a sensorimotor style of Bible storytelling as a primary means for encountering God. This is followed by a time of wondering about the story and time for children to respond to the stories of God through art materials. Children do love and worship God; through Young Children & Worship they are introduced to the meaning and actions of corporate worship in age-appropriate ways. By worshiping in a special place apart the the worshiping congregation, children become able to worship meaningfully with the congregation.
