What happens after the children (ages three through grade two) leave worship and head downstairs? They proceed to the Kindergarten classroom for a worship experience suited to their age level. The goal of Children’s Church is not to instruct or teach facts. That responsibility rests with the Church School program. In worship we concentrate on celebrating the joy of knowing about God and Jesus and God’s love for us. We do this by sharing songs, stories, games, and other activities. Each week, two adults, certified by the Childcare Committee, supervise Children’s Church. Parents of children in the program may wish to assist occasionally so you know what is involved and can talk to your children about their worship experiences.
“Give ear, O my people, to my teaching…things that we have heard and known, that our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord, and His might and the wonders that He has done…which He commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God but keep His commandments.” –Psalm 78:1-7
