Sundays [9:00 & 11:00 a.m.] – Multipurpose Room
Children’s Church is a wonderful place for children to learn how to engage in sanctuary worship as well as to discover their own gifts in leading worship, prayer, and serving. Children’s Church is also designed to create a space for children to experience authentic diverse relationships.
After children worship together and hear the message, children split up into multi-age small groups where they respond to God’s word through journaling. They also share prayer requests and pray for one another. Parents are invited to pick up take-home activities that go with each message in order to continue talking about and applying the message at home throughout the week.
All children are also invited to worship in the sanctuary with you. After all, Children’s Church is modeled after adult worship. It uses many of the same songs that are used in the sanctuary and has a message that echoes the main sermon.
