We believe it is of vital importance to include people of all ages when we meet together for worship. On Sunday mornings, we celebrate the life, joy, energy, and love our young people exude in a variety of ways. During worship, a table is set up in the front of the sanctuary with activity and coloring pages that pertain to each day’s Bible lesson and a calm-down kit full of quiet toys to help keep our youth relaxed and engaged.
During each service, we include the young people in our congregation by taking time to gather and teach them an important theme from each day’s Scripture lesson. We might act out part of the Bible story, take time to talk about who God is and why it matters in our lives, or share with each other and the congregation what God is doing in our lives.
For the last portion of each service, our young people are invited to one of our classrooms to continue to learn and play together for the rest of the service, or to remain at with their parents or the kids table at the front of the sanctuary.
