Parents of Young Children

Children are an important part of God’s family, and we are happy to have you and your family worship with us. During the service, quietly explain the parts of the service and actions of the pastors, musicians, and other leaders. Sing the hymns, pray, and voice the responses. Children learn by imitating your participation. If you have an active child, you may need to take your child out of the service part way through. Keep stretching them until they can sit through the whole service. If you have to leave the service with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back. Children are God’s gift to our church. They remind us that he is growing his body while raising up the next generation of his people. As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me…” (Matthew 19:14).
