YC&W for 4 Year Olds

YC&W starts a new year of worship preparation.

A new season of Young Children and Worship has begun and there’s still time to join.  This ministry is offered during both 8:30 and 11:00 worship services and meets in Room CW-110 which is located in the Children’s Ministry Wing.  Mickey Fitts and Deb O’Brien serve as YC&W worship leaders each week.  The groups begin worship in the Sanctuary and dismiss to YC&W after the “Time with Children” or Baptism.  Groups will meet weekly through August 2018.

Young Children and Worship (YC&W) is a ministry of worship preparation for young children and their parents.  Parents and their children who are ages 4, 5, or 6 and not entering 1st grade this fall (Faith, Love, and Grace Sunday School classes) are invited to participate.  It provides a transition time from the church nursery to the hour-long worship service in the Sanctuary, in which our 1st graders fully participate.

Participation in YC&W  is optional (parent’s choice) as a support to families.  Young children are always welcome to attend the entire Sanctuary worship service at any time parents feel they are ready to participate fully.  We know, however, that it is helpful for some children to have a child-friendly introduction to the traditions, the order of worship, and the elements of worship.

Parents whose children participate in YC&W are also asked to be “helpers” at least one Sunday per month.  This helps equip parents as they guide their child in worship, and also helps parents meet their child’s peer group “community of belonging.”  When you register your child, there will be an opportunity to select your preferences.  A schedule of helpers will be created and communicated by the end of August and will begin in September.
